Winter is without a doubt the hardest season to get through, especially with the cold weather, rain and in some cases even snow. Having the right clothing in winter can be one of the best things you can do for coping with the plummeting temperatures and allow you to be outside.

 

What you need:

·         Gloves and Hats – Warm winter gloves and hats are great as you can lose a great deal of heat from your hands and head, you can get some good hats and gloves from Get The Label.

·         Scarves – These will keep your neck warm and are perfect when combined with a coat.

·         Socks – Good socks made from a warm insulating material are important, remember that materials like wool will retain heat, even when wet.

·         Coat –  Having at least one heavy winter coat is your best defence against the cold

·         Boots – A good pair of leather boots will protect your feet from rain, wind and snow. Pairing good socks with leather boots are one of the best ways to keep elements away

Choosing the right material

When selecting clothes for winter the first consideration should be the material that the clothes are made out of. One of the best winter clothing materials is most definitely wool, this comes in many different varieties and costs. Other warm winter materials include things like mohair or angora.

Layering

Layering is also another important consideration when the temperatures drop. In very cold weather you should attempt to wear at least three layers, these are a base layer an insulating layer and an outer layer to keep the external elements away. The base layer keeps you warm and the insulating layer keeps this heat in, and finally the outer layer will keep things like wind, snow and rain off the other layers and will keep you warm.

Budget

Choosing the best materials can be expensive, but even those on a budget can still keep the elements away during the colder months. It is still a great idea to invest in one or two good pieces of clothing for the winter, particularly things like  snowmobile gear  for women.

and men, shoes or coats, remember that buying better quality versions of these will generally mean that they last much longer and in the long run they will pay for themselves.

Don’t let this winter get you down, make sure you have the right clothing to fight the elements and make being outside as comfortable as possible!
