Summer is over and it’s time to turn our sights to fall and winter. As the days get colder, we’ll be filling our closets with new fashion collections that will have us looking stylish through the colder months. Despite this, we may still find that we need to layer clothing to stay warm enough.
To avoid over-spending on unnecessary items, there are a few clothing staples that you should have available when you really feel the chill. They combine technology and fashion to warm you up in seconds and to keep you protected even in the outdoors.
Here are some of the most popular heated wearable’s that you should buy this winter:
For anyone who spends a lot of time outside in the winter, a heated glove will make a big difference. These highly practical clothing items come in a variety of styles and sizes.
They work by using an integrated battery that you can activate to keep your hands warm for hours. Heated gloves are usually designed with people who do extreme winter sports in mind (such as snowboarders), but they’re just as useful for anyone who spends time in a cold climate.
Whether you’re outside or inside, there’s nothing cosier than wrapping yourself up in the best heated scarf you can find. This ultimate comfort piece can be super fashionable if you know where to look.
You can choose anything from an infinity scarf to a wide shawl. Some heated scarves will be operated by the battery while others may come with a 100% natural warming pouch that you activate by touch. Buy one for your home and you won’t regret it!
Although heated jackets have been around for a while, in recent years they’ve really burst on to the scene. More fashion brands like Uniqlo are taking notice and interest in manufacturing fashion-forward garments that are woven with technology to make them perform even better.
They’re equally as ideal for city dwellers as they are for athletes. Look out for additional perks like jackets that will also charge your devices. This heated clothing is definitely here to stay.
Finally, an often overlooked fashion item: The humble sock. We use socks every day but sometimes pay little attention to the fact that we’re buying quality items that will last us a long time.
Winter is a particularly challenging time as our feet can get soaked through shoes and no matter how thick or layered our socks are, the cold will seep through.
Cold toes can become a health hazard through hypothermia if you don’t keep your feet active at all times. Heated socks can fix all that.
These techy items sound like they’ll be uncomfortable, but the way that the battery is incorporated into the fabric, you won’t even know it’s there. This is a must for anyone who suffers from cold feet.
The best part of any heated garments is that you can find them at all prices. You can get a perfectly good-looking heated scarf on the cheap, and if you want to pay a little more, you can find some real high tech versions. Always remember to do a little research and read online reviews before you buy.
