Keeping warm during the winter season is of high necessity, though this isn’t new information to anyone. But there is a way to keep warm and avoid wearing all the items of clothing one owns. It’s a common belief that in order to look good one must spend a substantial amount of money on their clothing, that’s not always the case.

It’s all about layering your clothes to keep the cold out. It’s even possible to keep warm using fairly light clothing as long as your clothes are layered correctly.

Socks & Gloves

The feet and hands play a role in regulating the body temperature because they have a large surface area. Thus it’s essential that they remain covered if you are outdoors for an extended period of time. This one is a key point for the little ones when they are playing outside and luckily the clothing section in select Choppies stores have a wide variety of affordable options to choose from.

Coats/Jackets & Beanies

When buying coats/jackets it’s important to make sure that it will still fit even with all the extra layers of clothing underneath it. If you want to avoid layering your clothes, be on the lookout for jacket/coats that have a thick lining. Blue Clothing has an extensive range of jackets to pick from for both men and women.
