Women are always conscious about their style and looks, and when it comes to winter wear, they get even more confuse in choosing the right one. The problem with winter wear is that if you choose the wrong clothing, you look like a stuffed toy wearing a winter cloth. One viable solution for this problem is to choose light weight but warm winter clothing that does not make you a teddy bear. Here are some tips for you to use in winters to look stylish and stay warm.
First of all, you should understand that you have to layer your clothing so that you could get the best protection from cold. The best thing about layering is that you do not look stuffed when put on several layers of thin clothing.
When layering winter clothes, there are basically three layers of clothing that you must wear viz. inner or wicking layer, middle or insulation layer and outer or protective layer. The inner layer is the one that is responsible for providing you warmth as well as absorb the sweat from your body during physical activities. Thermal wear such as woollen or cotton thermals for women is the best option for inner layer of winter clothing as they are the best for providing extra warmth as well as they are good in absorbing moisture. As the inner layer is worn just next to the skin, you must make sure that the fabric used for making thermal wear is safe for skin. Most of the thermal wears are made from a blend of cotton and wool, which are soft and safe for kin. The best thing about thermal wear is that they provide you the best level of warmth but are very thin.
The next layer of clothing is the middle or insulating layer. The job of this layer is to provide insulation to the body from the cold outside. A nice sweater can be the best option for middle layer. Sweaters are available in many different designs and styles. Sweaters nowadays are made from processed wool, which is very thin and lightweight but provides you equal amount of warmth as compared to the wool used in the past. The best option would be to buy a cashmere sweater as it is soft and very lightweight.
The next layer is the outer or protective layer of winter clothing. The protective layer is responsible for providing protection from the elements of weather such as snow, wind and rain; hence the material for the outer layer must be water and wind resistant. A nice over coat or a jacket would be the best option for the outer protective layer. Also, make sure that the outer layer is breathable enough so that the moisture from the body could easily escape from the body.
Apart from that, you also use accessories like winter caps, scarves, gloves and socks to add extra style to your looks.
