Alas, as is inevitable winter is on its way again (unless you live in the southern hemisphere, in which case bookmark this and come back in six months). With heating bills getting ever more expensive – plus you have to leave the house at some point! – it makes sense to keep warm using clothes (that’s not quite as obvious as it sounds). Here are some useful clothing tips that will help you stay warm as the temperatures start to fall.
1. Men’s socks

If like me, you don’t have particularly small feet, then men’s socks are a godsend. It’s a lot easier to find long socks in men’s ranges, and they really do help keep your legs warm. They also tend to come in plain colours, if you don’t like the sometimes gaudy female variety.

This is an often-quoted tip for keeping warm, and it really does work. Wearing a vest top, t-shirt and jumper, for example, helps trap heat. Throwing a gilet over a jumper is another good tip (mine is fake fur and suede, and I love it!).

While I’m not advocating wearing hat, coat and scarf indoors, a light scarf is good for preventing your neck and throat from getting cold. As well as keeping you warm, scarves come in infinite variety and look so stylish (something that can be hard to achieve when you’re wrapped up in layers).
