The Heat is On

Winter Apparel Sizzles this Season

This winter, more than ever, it will be important for people to get outside and enjoy the fresh air, sunshine for vitamin D, and company of our friends and loved ones.

For me, sitting outside by a fire with something hot to drink and catching up with friends has been one of the best ways to connect with people safely. So we need to gear up with winter apparel to be able to do that and many other outdoor activities to stay active this winter.

Some of this first things I invested in were heated apparel items. They are game changers. Of course, you can spend a lot of money on those items if you are snow skiing in frigid temps, or you can get very moderately priced items off of Amazon for less extreme activities. Personally, I invested in a great pair of heated socks and gloves, but there are so many products depending on your needs.

If your needs lean more toward skiing, there are some fun new trends to follow. Neon jackets and pants are everywhere — the brighter the better. Neon also makes it easy to find your kids when they want you to watch them come down the hill in a tube or on skis. On the flip side of bright, designers are coming out with snow pants that look like denim jeans. You can go right from trails or hills to something else without an outfit change.

No matter what you choose to invest in this winter, make sure you invest in the time commitment to stay active and connected in the outdoors.
