Winter-Wear-Guide-Singapore-Gearaholic

Are you clueless about which kind of winter wear you should be packing for the winter season? Don't worry! We've listed the right clothes you should wear from Montane beanie to boots!

In Singapore, there’s barely a need to wear a winter jacket, woolen gloves, winter coats or boots to keep you warm. However, you'll definitely need to prep your winter wear if you're heading to a temperate zone to spend your holiday!

When heading to places and countries where temperatures dip, you’ll definitely need good, warm winter clothes so you can enjoy your holiday.  

What do you need to keep yourself warm?

In order to keep warm, there are certain parts of your body that you need to cover well:

  • Head and ears
  • Neck
  • Core Area
  • Hands and Feet

Once these parts of your body are well-covered, you'll surely feel warm already. If you love to travel during winter, then you must invest in good winter scarves, gloves, hat, beanies, socks, jacket and boots.

Layering is the key!

The trick is layering – if you want to feel warmer you can always add more clothes, or take them off to feel cooler. Below are the clothes you will need for the different winter temperatures:

  • Under 20° to 30°

  • Just bring a sweater in case it gets chilly or windy. Otherwise, you’ll be comfortable walking in your woolen top and jeans.

    Under 10° to 20°

    Between these temperatures, you still don't have to wear thick winter clothes. On a sunny day, you can just wear one layer of clothing. If it gets cold, just wear a jacket and a scarf.

  •  

    Under 0° to 10°

    In this range, you should wear a thick jacket. Make sure you have a woollen coat and a jacket. Consider layers of winter wear that are made of cotton, wool or silk. Also wear your gloves, scarves, and beanie!

  • Below 0°

  • This temperature range will require you to wear three to four layers of clothes.
