Winter is here, and it is a cold one! In dressing for winter, warmth is of utmost importance. The most important articles of clothing are outerwear. Jackets and accessories are most important in colder temperatures since they should be worn over indoor clothing, such as t-shirts and sweatshirts, to ensure supreme warmth outdoors.
Winter vests are great for making sure the torso stays warm. They work best as a second layer of protection over a well insulated long sleeve shirt, sweater, or light jacket. The addition of a vest will make a noticeable difference. The Rossignol R906 Men’s Telluride Fleece Vest is a basic fleece vest, perfect for warmth while allowing the arms a full range of motion. This 100% polyester microfleece vest has a full zipper in the front and zip closure pockets for hands. The polyester allows the vest to be breathable, quick-drying, pill-resistant, and wrinkle-resistant. It is available in five colors and six sizes ranging from S-3XL for the best fit. The Rossignol R919 Women’s Telluride Fleece Vest is the same vest with a feminine fit. It is available in five colors and five sizes ranging from S-2XL.
Depending upon how low the outdoor temperature gets, layering jackets is a smart option. Some lighter fleece jackets also work very well as inside liners as well as light cold weather jackets. The Chestnut Hill CH900 Men’s Microfleece Full-Zip Jacket is perfect as a coat on its own. Its light style also makes it a smart solution as an inside layer for a weatherproof or otherwise heavier outer coat. The polar fleece, side zip pockets, waist drawcord, and full zip front closure are all dynamic features in addition to its resilience and quick drying abilities. It is available in eight standard colors and eight sizes ranging from XS-4XL for the best style and fit. This great jacket is also available with princess seams for a flattering women’s fit as the Chestnut Hill CH900W Women’s Microfleece Full-Zip Jacket. The women’s version is available in nine colors and five sizes ranging from S-2XL.
Soft shell jackets are extra warm and extra lightweight. The soft shell style is breathable, stretchable, wind resistant, and water resistant. Layers of nylon shells and fleece create the thin yet very warm jacket. The Devon & Jones D765 Men’s Advantage Soft Shell Jacket is well-suited for keeping warm in cold temperatures. The layers allow for protection from wind, rain, and snow. This full-zip jacket is available in four colors and seven sizes ranging from S-4XL for the best fit. The same excellent soft shell jacket is available with a feminine fit as the Devon & Jones D765W Women’s Advantage Soft Shell Jacket. It is available in four colors and five sizes ranging from S-2XL.
Winter accessories are also very important in finishing a warm outfit. Scarves, such as the Alternative AA7007 Pima Scarf, are smart to wear to keep the neck warm. This particular scarf is made of 100% pima cotton. Pima cotton is extra soft and durable, which are important qualities for a warm winter scarf. It is available in one size and six bold colors.
It is important to stay as warm as possible to maintain comfort and good health throughout the winter. As recommended in the fall, layering is the best way to stay warm at all temperatures. The torso is the most important area to keep warm, followed by the extremities. Layering outerwear is always a smart move, whether it is wearing a vest over a sweater or light jacket, or wearing a fleece jacket under a thicker coat. Follow these tips, and stay warm!
