When the temperature outside drops, you probably feel like staying inside to keep warm. But a cozy home doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to stay cooped up indoors. Instead of hunkering down, upgrade your winter lifestyle by wearing clothing that will keep you warm without making you sweat. There are so many ways to dress for the season and stay warm that not only will your house not feel as dreadfully cold, but they will also be more comfortable as well. Upgrading your winter lifestyle doesn’t need to cost a lot of money either. In this blog post we’ll give you some tips on how you can upgrade your winter clothing budget while still staying within your means. Read on to learn more…
During the winter months, layers are your best friend. Whether it be a thick sweatshirt underneath a baggy shirt or a light jacket over a polo shirt, layers will keep you warm. But they will also keep you comfortable so you can stay active outdoors longer. So what are the best layering pieces for winter? You want to consider your body type before selecting layers. Are you tall with long arms that can easily get cold? If so you should wear thick sweaters or cardigans layered over leggings or sweatpants. Are you on the shorter side but have broad shoulders? This is the best body type for wearing heavy-weight jackets. If you are curvy with long arms, you might also want to consider wearing knitwear under heavy outerwear.
Wear your boots
If you have the option, we highly recommend wearing your boots during the winter months. Booties are a great way to keep your feet warm and comfy while still being able to get around easily in your house. If you don’t have the option to wear your boots, don’t worry, there are still a few other ways to keep yourself warm while staying active outside. Try wearing socks with booties so you don’t have to remove your socks when you go inside. Another option is to wear a pair of winter boots that have a thicker sole so you can wear them outside while still keeping your feet warm.
Wear a hoodie with the hood up
A hoodie can be worn many ways. If you wear it inside with the hood down, the extra warmth from the hood will help keep your head warm. Alternatively, fold the hood up and wear the garment like a jacket. Either way, a hoodie is a great layer for winter. If you live in a warmer climate or are just not a fan of the hoodie, you can still wear them during the winter. Knitwear with a lining can work as a replacement for hoodies and other heavy-weight outerwear. Sweats with the lining peeled out are another option.
Ditch the denim jacket
Ditching the denim jacket has been a big trend this season. While we definitely recommend ditching the denim jacket for the winter, we don’t recommend it for only one reason. We want to keep your budgets in check, so let’s talk about that first. The denim jacket can be quite affordable, especially if you find a gently-used one at a thrift store. However, if you live in a colder climate you need to keep in mind that the denim jacket will be too warm. It will not keep you warm but rather make you sweat from the inside, which is not nice. So ditch the denim jacket for the winter and replace it with a heavy-weight jacket with a hood. As you can see, upgrading your winter lifestyle doesn’t need to break the bank. There are many ways to keep warm and comfortable while staying active outside.
Round up your essentials
– Winter gloves: Thumbless gloves are a great way to keep your hands warm while still being able to use them.
– A thick scarf: Scarves can be used in many ways during the winter months. You can wear a lightweight scarf around your neck as a scarf like you would a neckerchief. Alternatively, you can use a scarf to cover your hands like gloves.
– Winter boots: While you can wear winter boots with jeans, you can also wear them with dresses or skirts. If you wear winter boots with your jeans, you can remove them and wear them like slippers or put on socks to keep your feet warm.
– Winter hats: You can wear winter hats with scarves or any other headpiece to keep your head warm.
– Winter coats: Even if it’s not the winter months, a winter coat can be a great investment. Many winter coats come with thermal undergarments. Additionally, if it’s a windy day, a winter coat will help you keep your body temperature regulated.
Don’t forget about your dog!
Dogs are amazing creatures that keep us warm on even the coldest days. If you live in a colder climate, we recommend adopting a dog as they are great insulators. When it’s cold outside, your dog will stay warmer than you will because they have fur while you have skin. While we recommend adopting a dog in order to keep yourself warm, we also recommend adopting a dog that is a good fit for your lifestyle. If you live an active lifestyle, a dog that would require you to spend most of your day indoors would not be a good fit for your lifestyle. On the other hand, if you are more of an outdoor person, a dog that would be happy to stay indoors during the winter months would not be a good fit for you.
Shorts and t-shirts outside in the sunshine
There are many ways to stay warm during the winter months. If you live in a colder climate, we recommend wearing layers to keep yourself warm. However, if you are more of a summer person and don’t like wearing layers, consider wearing shorts and t-shirts outside in the sunshine. There are many advantages to wearing shorts and t-shirts outside in the summer. First, they are more comfortable than heavy-weight winter jackets. Secondly, they are much easier to remove during the winter months when it’s cold outside. Although they won’t keep you warm like a jacket, they will keep you much more comfortable than heavy winter jackets. If you live in a colder climate, we recommend upgrading your summer lifestyle by wearing shorts and t-shirts outside in the sunshine.
