How to Wrap up Warm in Cold Weather



Knowing how to dress in cold weather is an integral part of your personal style. You're not going to give up your style 3 months out of the year, and sometimes more on where you live. Your desire to dress well and stay stylish in the winter while staying warm shouldn't leave you, but the winter season is not the easiest way to dress in style. How not to be cold, and how can you stay comfortable at the same time? While guaranteeing you style and feminine elegance. You can juggle your clothes and be warm while mastering your stylish look.

Rules for dressing well when it's cold

The base layer, close to your body. It protects your skin, keeps you warm and wicks away moisture. Better to opt for a thermal base in quality material. Concretely, it is a t-shirt or a tight top in technical materials that acts as a second skin. The middle layer isolates you. Concretely, it is about a sweater or a cardigan in wool or cotton.


The top layer. It protects you from bad weather (rain, wind). Concretely, it is a wool blend coat or a technical parka.

For your lower body, consider wearing leggings or tights under your jeans or pants. If you're wearing a skirt or dress, consider wearing heavy tights.

The 4th layer trick

If 3 layers are not enough, do not hesitate to add a 4th. Either between the 1st and the 2nd layer or between the 2nd and the 3rd.


Wear a thick woollen cardigan over your 2nd layer (sweater/cardigan) before putting on your coat. I advise you to have at least 40% of quality material in the composition of this piece. 30% mohair, 10% wool and 60% acrylic to the maximum. The best is to increase the percentage of natural material and as high as possible to stay warm in cold weather.

If it's moderately cold, you can wear a denim, flannel, or chambray shirt under your sweater instead. It's a very stylish sartorial overlay. Which doesn't spoil your looks.

Cover rule

Just remember to cover your skin as much as possible: long-sleeved tops, longest bottoms possible, turtlenecks (for these, you can opt for the tight, loose or turtleneck depending on your neck and the model in which you are most comfortable).


Temperature rule

Think about your internal thermometer: you should always keep a high temperature close to your body. This requires quality materials. They are more important in winter: cotton, wool, cashmere, merino, linen (yes!), Thermal materials. This is an opportunity to carefully check the small quality label before purchasing the part you want.

Stay warm!
