6. I work outside all day every day.


My recommendation is a pair of tights instead of sweat pants under your pants. Snow pants over the jeans.

On top I use silk or UnderArmor as the first layer - cotton absorbs and holds the sweat which can be pretty dangerous. I always wear a wool or thinsulate vest to keep my trunk warm. Layers of your choice on top of that topped by a down coat. Nothing works for me like down.

I only use one pair of SmartWool socks. I've found that two pairs of socks make my feet feel "crammed", then they do get cold. My husband always wears two pairs of socks however. Swears by it.

Hat, gloves, scarf - yup. I've found that for me if I keep my trunk and legs warm, my extremities are far less likely to get cold.
