In Sweden we have this saying that goes: There is no bad weather, there is just bad clothes. Well, I think that’s a stupid saying. There is obviously bad weathers, especially if you’re a blogger. I do however think that it’s important to know how to dress for the weather. So in today’s post I will tell you about how I can wear short skirts in temperatures below -12° Celsius without freezing my butt of. So here we go; how to wear a short skirt in cold weather.
You see it’s all about layering. Something I said a while back that I would not write about, but I guess I know more about it than I thought I did. So this is how I dress for a day out in the cold. Or a walk, I mean a walk. Probably a short one to. Because even if the clothes are warm the weather is freezing.
This is pretty much my everyday look at the moment. If I ever get outside that is. My mittens are great because I don’t even need to wear a pair of finger gloves under them. And cotton skirts are the best, the ones with polyester tend to get cold ever with all the things I wear under them.
Layering for a short skirt in cold weather.
* Some kind of tank top.
* Two pair of tights, at least 40 den each.
* Cotton bicycle shorts under the skirt.
* knitted over-knee socks, even if they make my feet a bit to warm.
* Cotton skirt.
* Knitted sweater, the warmer kind.
* Warm jacket.
* Beret or an other hat, since much of the body heat disappears through the head.
* Knitted scarf.
* Dr. Martens or other good boots.
And that’s how to dress for the Swedish whether right now. And the best is that the way I’m layering I can just peel of some of the layers when I get inside. This way I’m never get too cold or too warm.
How do you layer to get through this colder months?
