The key for a perfect winter outfit is not to wear dozens of pieces but a few good ones. The quality of the layers you wear will determine how protected you will be. Here are tips on what to look for in a coat.
Get in the habit of reading the label, especially when it comes to coats. Many are made of cheap acrylic.
For extreme cold temperatures – and to ensure you stay warm and well protected – prioritize coats that cover at least your hips.
Pockets and hoods are essential in a good winter coat – even if you wear gloves and a winter hat, these are details that make a difference, especially when it is windy.
For extreme cold, it is important that the jacket is insulated. Remember that wool and leather jackets are usually not insulated.
