As the summer ends and as the fall takes full effect, the weather is going to turn colder. Gone will be the days of wearing shorts or needing to be too conscious of the type of fabrics your clothes are made of — but the colder weather has its own set of nuances to worry about. In this week’s Wildwood Towers Apartments Blog, we’ve got a few tips for you to dress better for the colder weather.
If you’re looking to dress for warmth, layering can be a great way to accomplish that goal. Unlike summer, layering is a good way to look good and account for the weather. Find articles of clothing that are light enough to layer (though it can be good to layer thicker pieces during the colder days). Remember that your outermost layer should be one that you can remove if it gets too warm.
Choosing the right kind of accessory can make your life a little more comfortable. Picking a scarf, mittens, and a warm hat or beanie can keep you warm when it’s cold, and depending on the item, it can be a stylish addition to your outfit. Accessories can easily be put on or taken off, so you if you get too warm you can easily remove it.
A way to deal with the weather is by wearing clothing that is not only stylish, but functional as well. Investing in outerwear that is warm and waterproof can greatly increase its utility during the colder months. If it does snow, you’ll be glad to have waterproof outerwear and shoes that have traction so you’re not slipping all over the place.
