Just when you think the temperatures are going up, old man winter swoops in and reminds us we live in Canada and it’s only March. It’s currently -9 degrees celcius, but feels closer to -15 outside. So, how to dress for winter without looking like a Michelin man? Here are some tips to look stylish in cold weather, as well as some product recommendations.
First, I’m going to talk about your first layer. In cold weather, I like wearing Uniqlo Heattech tights under a pair of pants for extra protection. If it’s really bad out, I will layer those under fleece-lined leggings, then put boyfriend jeans on top. Here, I’ve worn Uniqlo Heat Tech tights with a pair of thick, polyester dress pants from Zara. Jeans are a useless layer in winter, so look for tightly woven synthetics, or even better, wool pants.
I’m wearing a Uniqlo Heattech fleece turtleneck, and trust me, it’s one of the warmest items I own. I love that this piece is stylish and on-trend, but is made of technical fabric. It looks great paired here with a cute pair of printed pants, but also works with casual leggings or jeans too. Underneath the turtle neck, I’m wearing a Heattech tank camisole as well for added insulation. I love layering those tanks under tops and blouses because they add no bulk! They really trap your body heat in, especially when you start moving.
