If you live in a place where it gets very cold, you may benefit from my tips for dressing warmly in extreme cold!

I live very far north, and during the wintertime the temps can drop well below zero on any given day.

I’ve learned several tips for dressing warmly that have kept me nice and snug on many occasions.

Please keep reading if you would love to know what they are!2

1. Layers

It took me a while to remember this hint, but it’s one of the best tips for dressing warmly.

Wearing layers seals your body heat in better than anything!

Layer tanks under t-shirts, under jackets or sweaters.

Layer leggings under bandage skirts.

Layer jackets over vests, over button up shirts.2

Be creative, and remember to layer!

2. Leg Warmth

Some days, it’s so cold that jeans don’t even keep your legs warm!

On these days, you have to put a pair of fleece-lined leggings underneath your jeans.

I’ve gotten strange looks when I advise people to do this, but trust me, it works.

Your legs will be toasty warm, and no one will be the wiser!2

3. Wear a Hat and Scarf

Did you know that 80% of your body heat escapes through your head?

Wearing a hat in the winter can make a whole world of difference in how warm you stay.

You can choose a hat based on your personal preferences, but any style will help lock in the heat.

It’s also a good idea to wear a scarf, since your neck area holds a lot of body heat as well.

You can opt for fashionable scarves or big fluffy scarves meant for outdoor wear only.

And don’t forget about earmuffs!

They can protect against bitter wind, and keep you looking super cute.

4. Coat Tips

If you live in a place where it stays cold 6 months or more out of the year like me, chances are you may already own a few coats.

But I wanted to share a few tips on choosing a good coat.

Make sure you buy a heavy coat, designed for cold temps.2

Most fashion coats aren’t meant to be worn in sub-zero climates.

It is possible to find a fashionable coat that will keep you warm though.

Just look for heavy linings and durable, thick outer material.3

Make sure you own a coat in both brown and black, that way you can match your outfits.

And it’s a good idea to have a ski jacket on hand, or a puffer jacket made with ski material.

This kind of fabric seals out cold wind and keeps you extra warm!
