9 Cosy Items To Wear In The Snow, Because 'Snowmageddon' Could Be Here For A While
Us Brits sure do love to overhype the snow. While some parts of the UK have barely seen a flake, other areas have been inundated with snowstorms. No matter how much warnings the nation is given, it's common to find yourself underprepared for such weather. This is especially true when it comes to your wardrobe. Everyone owns a good winter coat and super thick socks, but thin knits and slippery shoes tend not to fare quite as well in freezing temperatures. I've scoured the internet to find what to wear in the snow that will actually keep you warm.
According to The Sun, the UK had its coldest day in seven years this week. The wintry weather has unsurprisingly caused chaos for cars, buses, planes, and trains. Some of you may well have decided to work from home rather than brave the flurries.
Whether you're embarking on your usual commute or trying to remain indoors for as long as possible, you'll likely encounter bad weather at some point. The following items are guaranteed to keep you nice and cosy on those occasions, however rare they may be.
From literal snow boots to essential thermals and slightly outlandish hats, these pieces will serve you well for any future snowy periods.
1The Sturdy Shoe
2The Chunkiest Knit
A snow-appropriate knit is one that comes in a chunky fabric, has a huge neck that you can burrow into, and is designed in a colour that isn't afraid of a bit of muck. River Island seems to have designed the perfect one. Available in UK size XS to L; 6 to 16.
3The Completely Committed Look
Is this look going a little too overboard? Who really cares? If it's snowing, you might as well make the most of it and don a full ski suit. This one comes with a funnel neck to protect against sub-zero temperatures and is padded throughout. Available in UK size 18 to 30.
4The Grown-Up Glove
5Step Into The Future
These space age trousers have everything you need for a day in the cold. They have actual pockets and the fabric repels water, ensuring you remain dry at all times. If you're not a fan of the stirrups, you can easily remove them. Available in UK size 4 to 18.
6The Ultimate Neck Warmer
7Say Yes To A Thermal
Uniqlo's Heattech technology keeps heat right where it should be. This turtleneck is part of the brand's Extra Warm range which means it'll keep you 1.5 times warmer than traditional Heattech designs. It comes in a range of colours and is so cheap that you may as well buy a few. Available in UK size XS to XXL.
8Don't Forget Up Top
9For When It All Starts To Melt
You'll need a warm pair of boots to brave walking in the white stuff — especially when it starts to get slushy. This Ugg-like design is made of waterproof fabric and is cushioned inside, meaning your feet will be kept warm even in the coldest of temperatures. The boots come in a sunshine hue (so you can dream of summer) or black. Available in UK size 3 to 9.
Time for some serious shopping.
