So winter is around the corner which only mean it’s time for those thick layers 😣. I can’t believe how quick summer/holidays have gone but it’s been a good one and I hope winter goes by quickly and it’s not so cold.
UK winter can get bitterly cold and it can also depends where you live, Glasgow, Scotland and County Durham get really cold and so you need the right clothes to survive those chilly months.
Here is a list of the essential items needed for UK winter season.
Warm puffer water proof jacket
When it comes to jackets for winter you need to make sure you get the right one as it might be the one you wear day in day out. The best winter jacket is the puffer jacket preferably the long ones as they cover your whole body and they make you feel all warm and snuggled up. You also need to make sure that the lining is not thin but thick in order to keep you warm.
This is so essentially in order to survive winter. You have to layer up big time, I don’t mean layer up and look like a giant snowman lol but you have to wear layers to add that extra layer of warmth. For example if your wearing a T-shirt make sure it’s long sleeves and add a jumper on top of it, if your wearing ankle boots wear some thick tights and add leg warmers.
Raincoat or umbrella
British weather is very unpredictable it might start out cold, then sunny, then raining….. so you will need a rain cover or umbrella for those rainy days especially if your jacket is not water proof. Layering up under the raincoat will help keep you warm and dry but if you don’t have a raincoat am umbrella does the same job.
Hat, gloves and scarf
I love a chunky scarf because am able to wrap it around my neck and tuck my chin in it ohhhh its so cosy!. A thick scarf is a must because a thin one will do nothing to keep you warm especially when it’s so cold you feel like it’s cutting you!. I don’t really wear a hat in winter but if it’s snowing I do wear it as I don’t want ice on my hair but if your not used to cold weather then wear the hat.
I hope you found this help. Do you live in a cold country or sunny? How do you survive winter?
