3 Lighter Options for Your Winter Wardrobe


What to Wear When You Don’t Want All Those Winter Layers

Winter is the most wonderful time of the year for getting together with your loved ones and basking in Christmas cheer. However, the cold and snowy months aren’t always the most wonderful for our personal fashion. A lot of us want to choose warmth over style, and bundling up is definitely one of the easiest ways to do so. But putting on a ton of layers can make us feel bulky and weighed down, and are certainly a hassle to keep putting on and off again and again.

Luckily for all of us, we live in an age where heat technology in clothing allows for lighter layers that keep us just as warm. Here are some essential pieces to add to your winter wardrobe that won’t add on any more weight.

Thermal Base Layers

Thanks to heat-tech clothing, we no longer have to give up our favourite outfits from autumn and spring. Instead, we can pop on thermal base layers underneath our clothing that are incredibly lightweight and warm, making nearly any outfit we choose a lot more winter-appropriate.

From button-downs to skirts and dresses, there are so many more options available to us when we pick the right undergarments to protect us from the chill. Choose to invest in high-quality base layers to help you stay warm while you wear most of the items in your wardrobe again.

Light Puffer Jacket

Light puffer jackets are some of the most popular winter pieces around the world, and it’s no wonder why. These super lightweight and insulated jackets make heavy layering a thing of the past. If you hate putting on loads of layers because of how weighed down it makes you feel or how bulky it makes you look, puffer jackets like these could be what you need.

They also come in a range of colours, thicknesses, and lengths, so getting your hands on a lightweight puffer jacket that suits your fashion sense and lifestyle is easier than ever.

Long Wool Coat

Dressing lighter in the winter doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style, even with your outerwear. A wool coat in a longer, calf-length looks amazing and can do wonders in keeping you warm. when paired with the right base layers and clothing, this style of coat can keep heavy layering at a minimum.

Perhaps one of our favourite things about longer wool coats as well, aside from their practicality in the season, is how versatile they are for various occasions. Whether you dress it up or down, a long wool coat will always look great and complement whatever you partner with it.

Final Note

A lot of people hate winter fashion because they feel like it’s a hindrance to fashionable expression, but there are useful articles of clothing out there that can help you stay stylish yet practical and warm. From choosing the right undergarments to picking the right coat for your lifestyle and personal fashion, bulky layering no longer has to be the only option when it comes to the winter chill.
