7 Must have clothing essentials for the Fall/Winter
Joe’s list begins with overshirts, sweaters, flannels. Leading to scarves, boots, socks and an umbrella! It’s always good to be prepared.
Don’t forget to layer up
It’s extremely important to stay warm during the fall/winter. Staying layered keeps you warm outside and comfortable when you’re inside. Layering up gives you the option to add more or less depending on the weather. It’s a smart and great way to add more to your outfit and still stay comfortable.
Use accessories! Warm wool socks, Scarves and gloves will keep you toasty throughout those winter days.
Find pieces of clothing that can trap heat and not let it leak through your clothing. You probably don’t want to be wearing a light-weight jacket that allows wind to go right through it. Invest in a good jacket that breaks the wind and allows for heat to stay trapped. Now we all don’t want to wear ski type jackets all the time and that’s perfectly fine because wool jackets fall under an insulated type clothing. Wool is tightly woven to help break the wind chills but does not do too well when exposed to water. If you’re living in a wet climate environment, I would suggest investing in a brand like Northface. However, if you live in a mild weather conditioned area than I would go for a more stylistic wool jacket from ASOS.
It’s something we overlook when we’re getting ready to brave the cold. Don’t be caught wearing runners outside when it’s cold and wet. The last thing you want are your socks wet and your shoes ruined. A pair of leather boots goes a long way towards making your travels comfortable. You won’t have to worry about your shoes soaking in the rain or keeping your feet warm because the leather is there to prevent that. Leather boots are also a statement piece, it doesn’t need to be worn just in cold weather. It can be worn to dinner parties or a stroll around the park, making leather boots such a versatile and must-have piece.
Now I’m not talking about the ugly Christmas sweaters and as warm as they are, it’s not the most stylish. The one thing I would recommend from those sweaters are that they’re mighty warm. The amount of wool that is used on sweaters is one thing to look out for and there’s nothing wrong with too little wool in a sweater but just be in mind of the cost. Sweaters for the most part are a heavy piece of clothing in anyone’s wardrobe. They’re mostly made of wool or a blend to keep heat from escaping. There’s also different types of wool like Merino-wool which is seen to be another type of wool blend that can not only trap heat but also cool down the body. A sweater is a staple just like the t-shirt, but instead of wearing a t-shirt in the fall/winter, you would wear a sweater.
