Q: Now that the weather is really
turning colder, do you have any suggestions for how
to dress to walk/job in these times of variable weather?
In colder weather, it is important to layer your
clothing. Here's a good tip for deciding how much
to put on: If you're warm as you head out the door,
you're probably overdressed. You should feel a little
chilly at first but fairly comfortable after 2-5 minutes
Also, when layering, the fabrics closest to your
skin should draw sweat away from your body, so choose
polypropylene or acrylic blends. On very cold days,
don't forget a hat — you lose a lot of body
heat through your head if you don't — and keep
your hands, feet and face protected.
