  • Still Feeling Cold With That Bulky Sweater On? Try Some of These Tips To Stay Warm In The Cold Temperatures

    [caption id="attachment_9722" align="alignleft" width="356"]cold weather clothing tips Layering Can Make All The Difference In Cold Weather[/caption]

    I made the mistake this morning of wearing my thin work shoes and workout socks.....it was unpleasant to say the least.  At lunch, I zipped back home and changed into my wool socks and boots....it now makes all the difference. No more walking slowly to minimize the pain of my frozen toes.

    When we're faced with the current weather we have now (snow flurries and single digit temperatures) it's crucial to dress properly. Here are some weather/fashion friendly tips:

    1.) Dress in layers. Use many thin, warm layers rather than a few thick layers. It will insulate better and allow you to strip off layers if the temperature climbs.

    2.) Buy or find a pair of insulated boots. Ideally, the lining should be wool or synthetic--not cotton. Linings can be purchased separately. You can purchase boots already with the lining, or use boots two sizes larger than usual, and use a lining.

    3.) Wear winter socks. Warm winter socks are important in keeping warm dry feet. Wool is best, although good synthetic "fleece" socks are often quite good. You can layer socks, but be careful that your feet are comfortable and the circulation isn't shut down.

    4.) Wear more than one layer on your legs. Oddly, some people will wear five layers on their torso, and only one layer on the legs. At minimum, have a base layer like long underwear and an outer layer, like snowboarding pants.
