Layers add cold weather protection

Begin with a thin, natural-fiber onesie or tee shirt

Add crew socks or tights

Next comes loose pants or skirt (go for denim, heavier khakis, or corduroy)

Then add a couple tops (maybe a thermal covered by a Henley or button-down)

Wrap ’em up in an easy-to-dress insulated coat

Choose cold weather mittens that will protect from wind (clip them to the coat sleeves or a shoestring so you don’t lose them)

Lace up the hiking shoes or boots

Top ’em off with scarf and hat (or toboggan)
