Dressing for cold weather in Harlem is not difficult, but careful planning helps. If you choose your clothing carefully, you can keep warm despite bitterly cold weather.Layering is the best way to keep warm. In addition to keeping you warm, layering makes it easier to avoid becoming overheated. You can simply remove layers if you’ve bundled up too much.
1. Add a first layer consisting of a comfortably light fabric that will wick sweat away from your body. Avoid pure cotton, linen, or other similar materials, however, because these fabrics retain moisture and will chill you. When planning how to dress for cold weather, staying dry should be a top priority. Traditional thermal undergarments work well for the first layer. An alternative to traditional thermals is silk. Silk is very warm and feels wonderful against bare skin. Silk is not very rugged, though, and won’t last as long as traditional thermal underwear.
