Now is the time of the year when we all have snowy weather trips coming up – those trips where we need a completely different wardrobe from the ones that we are used to wearing.
If you have a snowy trip, it is important to know what you need to bring (or buy) in order to be comfortable and have a good time.
Gloves That Allow Movement
If you are going out into a snowy environment, you may need gloves that allow you to move your fingers. This can be throwing snowballs, holding ski poles, or even just going shopping in a quaint town.
Gloves need to be comfortable and high quality – once your fingers get cold, you are going to be miserable no matter what.
Sunglasses For Your Eyes
Sunglasses can help to protect your eyes – which can be impacted by the amount of white in snowy locations. You will need to get high-quality sunglasses that block out UV rays.
Make sure these are glasses that are going to stay on your face when you are moving around, if that is what is in your plans. You may even want to get a strap to hold on your sunglasses or wrap around sunglasses that will prevent them from falling off or moving too much.
If you are looking to be warm on your trip, you absolutely need to focus on your legs. Too often, we focus only on the top halves of our bodies. You need snow pants if you are going to go to a snowy place.
Do not only focus on layering on top. Apart from snow pants, you also want to bring thick socks, leggings, and thermal underwear. Remember that you can always take things off, but you can’t always add them.
A Good Hat
Most people will lose a majority of their heat through the tops of their heads. If you are going somewhere cold, ensure that you have a good hat that will stay on when you are moving, won’t annoy you, and won’t cause you to sweat too much, especially if you are moving around.
If you are planning a trip to a snowy location, ensure that you do not focus too much on looking cute – focus too much on being warm and comfortable. You can always grow from there.
