Staying warm in the colder months is one key way to stay fit and healthy, and it’s super important to make sure your kids are wrapped up well. Coats and outer layers are one way of taking care of the cold, but there are plenty of layering tricks to try to keep you and your family warm and comfortable.
Tights Or Leggings Under Pants
On those really cold days, having a layer close to the skin under your pants can help keep out any cold chills and draughts. Try popping on a pair of tights or leggings and wearing them under your pants for some great insulation. Unless the pants are super tight, no one will notice, but you and your kids will stay warm and comfortable.
Knee High Socks
Working in a similar way to tights or leggings under pants, pulling on a pair of wooly knee high socks can help insulate your feet and lower legs, leading to greater overall warmth. Knee high socks can also look chic, so you don’t need to sacrifice style for comfort! There are also plenty of great designs out there for kids, so they can stay cosy and warm all day long.
Merino wool is a non-scratchy, natural fiber which can trap heat in (but typically costs far less than cashmere). Invest in sets for the whole family, to wear underneath tops and outer layers on those seriously cold days—this way, you can stay out on that hike or in the park for as long as you like, without the cold sending you back inside!
