3 Tips on Dressing For Transitional Weather
Like the old saying goes, “If you don’t like the weather in New England now, just wait a few minutes!” With weather that is ever-changing, it’s almost impossible to dress for extreme temps and inclement weather, right? Our friends at Uniqlo know otherwise. They share three tried-and-tested tips on dressing for any weather in comfort and style.
- Pick durable outerwear that can handle all weather
With Boston’s temperamental weather, clear skies could turn into a random shower or snow flurry without a moment’s notice. The key to survival? Durable outerwear that can keep you warm and dry; rain or shine. Uniqlo’s latest, the Blocktech Parka for both men and women, is both water- and wind-proof. And with their usual attention to detail, the zips are coated with a special waterproof lining and the seams are sealed to keep water from seeping in.
For when the temps dip a little lower, their new Light Warm Padded Jackets are what you need. They are padded with a material that’s a thinner and lighter version of down, which makes them more comfortable without sacrificing warmth. They are also water resistant and can be hand-washed at home, making these jackets perfect for the busiest of city dwellers.
- Layer, layer, layer!
When in doubt, lightweight layers are key. Uniqlo’s Cotton Cashmere Sweaters, made from a blend of cozy cashmere and cotton, are super-soft but not overly warm. They are the perfect layering sweater over one of their Supima Cotton T-Shirts. Available in any neckline and arm length that one would ever need, these tees are made from premium Supima cotton, a designation only given to the world’s top 1% of cotton produced. Bonus – both come in a rainbow of colors, and the tees come in at under $15 a pop.
- Go for comfy bottoms in an all-occasion style
When your weekend plans include running to the gym, meeting friends for coffee, and a stop off at the grocery store, you need bottoms that can go the distance without sacrificing comfort and style. Enter: Uniqlo’s Dry Stretch Sweatpants. Not only do they get the style thumbs-up for their tapered cut and chic fit, the technology in this aptly-named pant keeps you warm and dry, whether you’re chugging through snow, rain, or unnervingly warm winter weather.
