Best 54 Ideas What to Wear in the Snow

Are you puzzled about what to wear in the snow? Ladies usually feel colder than men, and there are body parts that collect such discomfort fast.

Winter comes together with skiing and snow, of course. Your friends may like skiing, but possibly you are the “chalet” type of person.

You like to sit outside, sun-lounging, sipping hot chocolate, and enjoying the sun, while skiers do their tricks on the slopes.

You enjoy the snowy landscape in front of you, taking many selfies and wearing colorful ski clothes.

Of course, you need to be warm to do that. For ski clothing, check these proper winter outfits too.

A winter trip is beautiful, but ladies, it is (indeed) cold weather out there. Freezing wind will add to that.

It would be best if you got proper winter outfits. Almost all of such clothing is good for any winter travel.

It is best to get dressed for success stylishly and warmly. Here are our knowledge and tips.

So, What to Wear in the Snow and Look Cute?

It is a matter of style and a selection from different outfit ideas.

You need excellent but lightweight materials and clothing under the “onion” concept.

That means to get dressed in layers, so your body limbs are always warm, while the central core can be adjusted.

From our experience, you don’t have to sacrifice style for warmness and vice versa.

Clothing gear technology has evolved very much, and there is plenty of stylish clothing gear that is winter-specific, safe to wear (i.e., proper snowshoes), and warm.

Keep in mind that snow wear is different from ski wear.

What to Wear in the Snow for Happy Feet?

The feet are the major heat-loss part of your body.

Maybe your grandma used to tell you that “you catch a cold from your feet” (our Greek grandma said so, anyway).

Have you noticed that your whole body does if your feet get cold?

What to Wear in the Snow regarding Shoes and Boots?

The best solution for a chalet case is the après ski boots or a pair of waterproof winter snow boots.

Such boots allow you to walk easier on cold/iced terrains and will keep your feet warm (along with proper socks).

You can choose ones with that extra fur on top for an upgraded, stylish look.

Tip: A small outdoor shoulder bag with a beautiful winter color will fill your image nicely and let you carry the things you need.

What Socks to Wear in the Snow?

Wear a pair of thermal socks instead of cotton ones. Cotton will keep moisture in, and as a material, it never gets warm. You need moisture-wicking materials. Thick wool will get your feet extremely hot, and you don’t want that either.

You may get in and out of a chalet many times when in a snowy environment. Better to wear socks that relatively “adjust” to such room-environment changes than getting either too hot or too cold.

Here is an excellent range of such socks:

What to Wear in the Snow for your Head?

Your head is the first that needs to be warm, as it is one of the significant heat-loss points of our body. A trendy beanie cap is a solution. Better to use one with fleece lining for extra warmth.

Wool ones are warm, but sometimes the “holes” ventilate the heat.

Neck High

Keep your neck and throat warm with a wool knitted neck gaiter. Such an act as a scarf allows you to raise it to cover your mouth and nose when it gets rather cold. It is best to have an intelligent solution for extra protection.

Tip: Sun reflects on the snow’s white surface, which can cause severe issues to your eyes (while giving you a tan). Wear a stylish pair of sports sunglasses.

Looking good and not getting blind is perfection.

Here are stylish ideas for gaiters to keep you warm:

What to Wear in the Snow for your Body?

The trick here is layers; when hiking or mountaineering, you need layers when you stay outside.

What are The Best Base Layers to Wear in the Snow?

Wear proper thermal underwear. Also, see the extended post for base layers here and how we combine clothes for different weather conditions (from extremely hot to extreme cold).

That layer will entrap your body heat. If you sweat even a little bit, you will immediately feel cold, no matter if you wear a thick jacket. Base layers are made for that reason accurately. Cotton t-shirts won’t do the work.

There are base layers following the lines of a female body (side and chest) for all sizes.

Which Fleece Jacket or other Mid Layer to Wear in the Snow?

Wear a soft fleece jacket as a mid-layer. You can wear this as it is (without an extra hardshell jacket) or as another layer before your outer layer. Most good jackets are in the form of 2/3 to 1, where the mid-layer is detachable. Wear vivid colors, as they look good on the snow.

The Outer Layer

Complete the outer layering with a soft down jacket or a hard shell. Such is necessary for winter in the city anyway. There are double-faced jackets for even more combinations.

Tip: Your hands need protection too. Choose a hiking-specific pair of gloves and leave your plain wool knitted pair home. Why? You may want to build a snowman or through some snowballs with your friends.

Waterproof gloves will keep you warm without getting wet. There are glove options with extra linings; you can have 2 in 1. Read this extended post for best-hiking gloves.

There are even special gloves where you can release the fingers to take photos or gloves that are touch-screen friendly!

What to Wear in the Snow for Pants?

Leave your jeans at home. Cotton, jeans, and such materials get wet immediately. Choose an outdoor pair of pants suitable for snow. That will keep you dry and warm, while pants with breathable materials won’t get you sweaty.

Such pants are also of the elastic type and can take the figure of your body. With a pair of cute winter boots, you will look hot while keeping your legs warm.

Do you need the extra mile in leg warmness? Then wear a pair of leggings or tights under your pants. See this post for ideas. That will keep you warm under icy conditions.

Conclusion on What to Wear in the Snow

There are plenty of options to choose from. The key points are lightweight, warm, high-looking, and stylish cloths. Pants and jackets are essential.

Snow is just another condition in nature and needs not block you from enjoying the outdoors. Get suited up correctly, and you won’t regret it.

Your style can rock, and you can look like your active type!
