Dress for Colder Weather

November can get cold with the possibility of snow, so it’s important to dress properly to keep yourself warm. What you wear can be the difference between being comfortable during the day and being miserable, so in this week’s Westminster Towers blog, we’ve got a few tips for you on ways you can keep warm during the colder months of the year.



When you’re purchasing new clothing for the winter, consider the materials they’re made from. Thicker fabrics should be the go-to choice, so select clothing made from wool, fleece, or even flannel. Unlike summer, you’ll need clothes that will keep heat from escaping. You can get uncomfortable quickly if you aren’t able to remain warm during the day. If you find it uncomfortable to wear thicker clothing, you can try layering with lighter, thinner fabrics.


Multifunctional Clothing

The season can bring unexpected weather occurrences, so give yourself an easier time by investing in some multifunctional clothing. As tempting as it is to wear that stylish article of clothing that doesn’t offer you protection from the elements, we suggest making a wiser decision. There will always be ways to look good while being prepared for inclement weather. Waterproof or water resistant outer layers, scarves, and even warm boots with lots of traction will make your winter life a lot easier!    


Base Layers

Though the winters here in Tacoma, WA don't get too cold, you may want to consider investing in some base layers just in case the weather takes a turn for the worse. Thermals can keep you warm during the day, but it can get too warm if you’re in an already warm location. We suggest wearing base layers for activities like snow sports, hiking during the winter, and if you’re going to be outside for an extended period of time.
