How to stay warm in cold days like these in Montreal..

So its freezing.. but you all know that.. its Montreal after all.. Well you can’t stay at home all day every day, now can you? I don’t know about you but I can’t! It drives me crazy!! So I’m going to give you suggestions to at least be able to deal with the cold weather better.. Don’t be afraid of the cold, be ready for it!
First thing I would say is LAYER! Just keep on adding layers, its freezing and you wont feel warm from a shirt and a cardigan or hoodie, you need to really put on some layers, and I will give you about the number that would keep me warm, I get cold fast though, so if you don’t get as cold as I do, then take off some of the layers that you don’t think are needed..
Layer one: Undershirt. Just an average white or black spagetti shirt. This is to keep your stomach and chest area warm.
Layer two: T-shirt. White, black, red, green, gray and blue.. whatever color you usually wear..
Layer three: thin wool cardigan, not to thick that you can’t wear on top of it anything and not too thin it won’t help keep you warm inside where ever it is that you are going to be in.. In my case, class or the library.
Layer four: A thicker cardigan, you know which ones I’m talking about the big huge thick one, I like the knit ones mostly, I find they give you a stylish look along with great warmth.. and the bigger they are, the cozier you feel…
Layer five: Scarf’s. You need a thick heavy knit scarf, trust me its a big secret to stay warm. Mine is huge.. It is taller than I am and it keeps me so warm I love it. If the temperature is above -5 C I can’t wear it, its too hot..
Now how about the pants! Simple! JEANS DONT WORK!! don’t convince yourself otherwise. I stick to leggings. Well 2 leggings on top of one another… But not two thick one.. One relatively thin and one thicker one. Logically; thin under, thick above.
Socks? 2 or 3 depending on what shoes your wearing. Uggs and the likes 1 layer… Rain boots: Thickest socks you have and underneath them I wear a layer of normal socks! Ha I know whats normal socks? They’re the ones that you would wear anywhere any day, any time and in any weather!
So! Yeah I think thats about it! Don’t forget your winter coat (THE MAIN REASON YOU’RE WARM), gloves, ear muffs and go out there and face the cold! Walk fast though but be careful of slipping! Roads might be icy… Good luck and if you have any questions please comment below I’ll be more than happy to answer you 🙂
