How To Dress Warmly In Cold Weather

Published on by


The cold weather is upcoming,Are you ready? For most of people like me, a fashion girl,we desire to follow fashion and stay warm together.But it seems too hard to manage it.Today I will share you how to dress warmly enough to stay comfortable outdoors. The following are some tips for doing so.

1.Favor natural materials-down

In my opinion, there is nothing warmer and lighter than down parkas. If you can, buy one that is rated to a certain temperature such as 20 degrees below zero Fahrenheit.

2.Dress in layers

The more layers, the better. Dressing in layers of clothing does several things for you:

  • Layers fill up the space between you and your winter coat with insulation. An undershirt, a shirt, and a sweater each represent one layer. Your winter coat is yet another layer. The more layers of insulation, the better.

  • Layers tend to trap air better. If you have only an overcoat on, the warm air next to your body tends to leak out of the top and bottom of the overcoat as you make body movements. Layers help to hold this air in.

  • Layers allow you to regulate your body temperature more accurately. If you get too warm, you can always open up a layer -- starting with opening up the top of your overcoat and progressively opening up more and more layers as you get warmer and warmer.

3.Be aware that you lose more heat through your head than any other body part.

This can be very deceptive. Your head never feels cold. Why? Because your body sends more heat to your head than any other body part to protect it.

Keeping your brain warm is so critical that your body will sacrifice any other body part before it will let the brain get cold.

Just because your head does not feel cold does not mean you are not losing heat off the top of your head. Remember this forever! You will not feel yourself losing heat off the top of your head, but you are!

The reason your feet and hands are cold is because you are losing heat in the head area. Why? Because hands and feet are low priority and your head is top priority.

This is the body's system for rationing its limited heat supply. Because your head is given top priority when it comes to heat supply, it never feels cold even though it is in fact a giant heat dissipation module.

Remember! Your head leaks heat. Plug the leak.

If you will prioritize keeping your head warm, you will have won half the battle in keeping your body warm.

4.The dumber your head-gear looks, the warmer it is.

I was recently shopping at L.L. Beans. A man was looking at a bombardier hat with a leather cover and a sheepskin lining.

A woman who appeared to be his wife said to him, "Forget it! You're not wearing it!" Grimly, he put it back. He had just barely started to look.

The hat would have gone well with the character Jim Carey played in the film Dumb and Dumber. As dumb as it looks, it is also very warm.

Yes, head-gear that dramatically alters your appearance is incredibly warm. The converse is also true. Cool-looking winter hats are just that -- a little too cool temperature-wise.

Why do you think those Russian women wear those big fur hats when it's 20 below zero? Because fur is incredibly warm, that's why. Check out more winter hats here.

5.Keep your face warm by keeping the rest of your body warm.

Yes, you can cover your face with a scarf or a face mask. Do so if it is cold enough and you have to. However, I find covering my face to be uncomfortable.

I prefer to employ another tactic. I like to keep the rest of my body so warm that I can afford to lose warmth through my face.

Think of it as a bank account. Warmth you preserve with other parts of your body can be spent on your face. Call this tactic saving face if you need an easy mnemonic.
