Knowing how to dress when it's cold is an integral part of your personal style. You are not going to give up your style 3 months out of the year; and sometimes more depending on where you live. Your desire to dress well and stay stylish in winter, while being warm, should not leave you. But the winter season is not the simplest season to dress in style: how not to be cold while not looking like a bibendum...
To guarantee warmth, you should always dress with 3 essential layers on your upper body :
the base layer, close to your body. It protects your skin, keeps you warm and wicks away moisture. It is better to opt for a thermal base in a quality material. I will tell you more about it later in the article. Concretely, it is a t-shirt or a tight top in a technical material. It acts as a second skin.
the intermediate layer. It isolates you. Concretely, it is a sweater or a cardigan in wool or cotton among others.
the top layer. It protects you from bad weather (rain, wind). Concretely it is a coat in mixed wool or a bloussons in technical material to protect against the cold.
If the 3 layers are not enough, do not hesitate to add a 4th layer: either between the 1st and 2nd layer or between the 2nd and 3rd layer. Concretely, what is it about?
Wear a large wool vest 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 (example: 30% mohair, 10% wool and 60% acrylic at the most). The best is to raise the percentage of natural and quality material as high as possible to stay warm in case of extreme cold).
If it is moderately cold, you can rather plan a denim, flannel or chambray shirt underneath your sweater. This is a very stylish clothing overlay. Which doesn't spoil anything for your look, we agree.
