Updated on September 12, 2013

How to dress up for winter

It necessary for you to learn how to dress up appropiately in a city with cold and snow, either if you live there or if you are visiting as tourist. Believe that low temperatures don't recognize your migratory status!

You should dress up by layers including since underwear up to coats, hats and gloves. On the right election of your clothing could depend that you enjoy your stay or your trip and keep healthy and happy.

There are 5 things you should keep in mind when it comes to dressing up appropiately:

  1. Thermal underwear
  2. Outerwear
  3. Sweter and coats
  4. Footwear
  5. Accesories: hat, glasses, scarf, gloves, umbrella, boots

1. Thermal Underwear

The first layer of your dressing should be your underwear. That is pretty obvious. However you need consider to buy a special kind of underwear. If you are from a tropical country is quite probable that you don't even considered the idea of using thermal underwear, but if you go to some places in the world where temperatures could down till 0 degrees Celsius (32 Farenheit) or less that part of your clothing is "essential". It is pretty common for many people not accustomed to cold weather to think that a good coat is enough for protecting of cold but is not, and thermal underwear could be a great difference in your perception of cold, mainly when the day is windy and low temperatures go under your trousers. In the case of socks, this only garment if its warm enough could prevent you from feeling uncomfortable with your shoes so close of cold ground. For many people feet and hands are the hardest parts of the body to get warm and on them depends the awareness of weather even when they're not the most vital organs.

2. Outerwear


How do you look?

Then it comes the outerwear. It is clear that even during cold seasson some people have to look elegant and very well dressed and that includes suits, skirts, high heels, etc. If you have to dress up like this, again try your underwear as comfortable as possible, otherwise you can choose many kind of outerwear where of course are included the wool shirt, loved by ones, hated by other... but always warm! and actually they don't have to be awful to be useful. You can choose a lot of sexy cloth made of wool.

3. Sweaters, coats, jackets

4. Footwear

5. Accesories: hat, glasses, scarf, gloves, umbrella, boots

      I love my Icebreaker clothes in winter, and used to layer them quite a lot. But I'm now in a country that heats inside, too warm for my comfort. Instead, I have a lambswool/leather jacket, and wool-lined boots, which I can take off and not boil inside.
