Winter attire refers to the clothes we wear to protect us from cold or low temperatures and include outfits like jackets, hats, scarves, gloves, coats, and suits. They can either be formal attire, casual attire, or custom winter sportswear with origins in the uniforms used by military troops in winter battles. Winter clothing is typically water-resistant and has multiple layers to insulate us against cold, and are worn by individuals in countries or areas experiencing low temperatures. Variations in style exist between users that are on a mountain compared to those that are walking around dense urban environments—with preferences for performance or style depending on the situation.
Stores typically start selling winter clothes in August or September and will do so for the rest of the year. Online retailers typically start selling winter clothes a little earlier. During this time clothes with heavier fabrics, outwear, long sleeves, and party dresses fill up stores.
Store winter clothes in bins to keep them safe from any potential stains or tears. Place non-delicate items into plastic bins, wrap delicate clothing items in tissue paper, and fold sweaters so they don’t lose their shape. Place the heaviest clothes at the bottom of the storage bin and the lightest on top. Store winter coats and dresses inside a garment bag.
The first layer of clothing should be well fitting and is generally a thermal layer. The next layer can be a vest, sweater, button down shirt, blazer, or cardigan. This item should fit well and be comfortable when worn above the base layer. The outer layer will be the most exposed and should be a coat, jacket, trench coat, poncho, cape, or shawl.
