How to keep warm this winter: Dress in Layers

Christmas now feels like a long way away and with the sudden change in weather we have turned our attention to keeping warm and the art of layering. Layering your clothes to keep warm doesn’t need to involve buying a new winter wardrobe as summer staples can instantly become cold-weather appropriate when you put them together properly.
Firstly, here are some key facts about keeping warm this winter by dressing correctly: 
  • Several thin layers work better than one thick layer of clothing.

  • Clothes made from Natural fibres such as wool or modal work best.

  • Dress from the inside out.. think thermal underwear, leggings, trousers, merino wools socks for the bottom half. For the top, think bra, vest, polo neck, wool jumper and then a lightweight down gilet/jacket. If you’re going outside make sure you wear a wind proof coat with gloves a hat and a scarf.
