The clocks have gone back, which means winter is well and truly upon us.
We’re all quick to think of coats, hats, scarves and gloves for braving the great outdoors as winter approaches, but if the weather forecasters have got it right this time, we’ll need to be made of strong stuff to get through the long winter months ahead - unless we want our heating bills to spiral!
No need to get your knickers in a twist though, we have lots of ideas to help you wrap up warm this winter. Remember, your skin is your largest organ, so wouldn’t it be a crying shame not to cover it with cosy goodies?!
Extra Thick Tights
As the temperatures drop, it’s time to upgrade your tights to a higher denier, so that you can wear skirts for work and special occasions all year round. 70 denier tights with brushed lining balance fashion with comfort, and can be chosen in a range of colours and patterns. Or, if you really want to feel cosy this winter, thermal tights are available up to a whopping 200 denier, to safeguard your skin from the elements this season.
Thermal tops are the perfect way to ensure you never have to max that heating dial. They can be sensible and discreet, with sleeveless, short or long sleeve options that can slip comfortably underneath your clothes. Want to look and feel good in your undergarments? Choose a thermal vest with a delicate cotton embroidery trim, ideal for night and day wear!
Long johns may be associated with men, but why should the boys be comfy and cosy under their jeans while we shiver? Go forth and embrace the warmth of that thermal feeling from hip to foot. Women’s long johns (also known as janes, jades, or jessicas) are available in a range of feminine colours, so you can feel smug as well as warm this winter!
Basics for Bedtime
Thick and cosy nightwear is an absolute must during the colder months. But if you’re looking for something a little different to the classic pyjama combo, why not invest in a onesie? We lose most of our body heat through our head and feet – a hooded onesie is perfect for bedtime, as well as winter nights cuddled on the sofa.
How often do you sit in bed on a morning with a cuppa as you wake up, but feel icy from the waist up? If you haven’t got a bed jacket, now is the time to put this right! A knitted bed jacket is a lightweight alternative to a dressing gown, ideal for slipping over your nightie when reading on an evening.
Finally, don’t forget your Christmas present list. We all have family and friends asking us what we want for Christmas, and it can be a struggle to think up new ideas. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or seeking gift ideas for a loved one, Sandras-Online has a superb range of winter essentials.
