How to stay warm when it's harsh cold outside

Stay warm, look cool

There's nothing worse than being underdressed in cold winter weather, and it takes strategic planning to guard yourself from the elements. Here are a few helpful reminders of how to stay warm without adding futile volume to your look in the process. Follow these steps and you won't have to rush home after work every night for fear of freezing to death.

 

Be hands on

Gloves are only as good as the craftsmanship behind them, and Swedish brand Hestra's range is guided by two masters - Mssrs Anton and Niklas Magnusson. These pairs is impeccably cut from soft, insulating shearling that's carefully examined and meticulously sewn. They're incredibly supple, ensuring you can easily tuck them into your pocket.

Cover from the bottom

Pick shoes that have a heavy-duty lug sole that’ll separate your feet from the freezing cold ground. That includes the nice shoes you wear to work, like your slick leather Chelsea boots. Wear socks built for freezing conditions while you’re at it.

Protect your neck

Embrace the turtleneck. Go for natural yarns to make sure to trap your body heat. And wear an undershirt under everything - because when you want to stay warm, two or three layers are better than one.

Go for baggy fits

Wear roomier clothes so you can fit high-tech layers underneath. Thermal leggings beat the hell out of distressed skinny jeans at keeping you warm.

Winter proof your coat

Wear a quilted liner jacket under your coat, wool one with slim pockets is a great suggestion. When you remove your topcoat, just pack the liner into one of the sleeves so it doesn’t get lost or trampled on.
