With the colder months underway, many people are perfectly content staying indoors, reaching for their wool socks and a bowl of hearty soup. And then of course there's a few brave souls who are properly bundling up and embracing the colder weather.
So whether the snow and cold air is your friend or foe, dressing for the cold weather can be relatively easy if you know how.
The first trick is to dress for what activity your partaking in that day. Are you heading into the office, or going for a hike?
Standing around outside means you’re creating less blood flow and you should stick to wearing heavier clothing that will lock in heat.
But for those exercising outside, you need to wear layers that will regulate your body temperature and can be removed as you warm up.
Once your dressed for the day, you need to remember that in order to stay warm, you need to make sure that your head, hands, ears, and feet stay warm and dry.
For the really wet and cold days, it's smart to invest in a pair of boots that are waterproof to keep the wetness out.
Waterproof gloves are a great thing to own as well, as cotton or wool gloves can get damp very easily.
For your head, a pair of earmuffs or a toque that covers your ears will keep both your head and ears nice and warm.
Finally to keep your feet warm, the Yo Sox team recommends wearing a pair of cozy Yo Sox in one of our winter patterns. There's knee-high chalet inspired socks for the ladies and Nordic crew socks for the men.
