Its winter in Kenya, dressing tips for this cold season
It is that time in Kenya where the cold and frigid weather is here with us again. Although Kenya enjoys a rather warm tropical climate in most months, the months of June, July and August can really get colder. Another cold season in Kenya is in the months of March and October, during the long and short rains respectively. So, during these cold seasons, everybody is trying to keep themselves warm.
The simplest way for dealing with cold weather is by dressing for the weather. Kenyans are fortunate enough that although it is really getting cold, the temperatures do not fall the way they do in other Europeans countries during winter. All in all, it is cold, and you have to dress appropriately to keep yourself warm and at the same time, make sure you look fabulous. The fact that it is cold should not give you a reason to compromise your style.
How to dress for cold and still rock it
Cold seasons come with more challenges that you may not be willing to handle especially if you are going to be out of the house the better part of the day and at the same time keep yourself warm. More challenges arise when you are heavily dressed and all over sudden, the day becomes warmer and you are left wondering what to do. To avoid such discomforts, check out these two tips and tricks to help you transform your dressing and keep warm during this cold season.
Dress in layers
There is a trick in layering. Choose pieces of clothes that can be worn either over or under other clothes. In other words, the pieces of clothes you choose should be the ones you can wear alone and still look fabulous. You see, at some point, during the day the weather is bound to become warmer.
For instance, if it was heavily raining in the morning and so you ended up wearing your heavy woolen coat and a silky top underneath, if the weather becomes warmer, it will mean trouble to you. The same case when a hint of sunshine in the morning deceived you into wearing a blouse/shirt and a light blazer on top. If the weather gets colder as the day goes by, you will end up freezing for no apparent reason. Therefore, opt for such things as scarfs, gloves, or tights. The good thing with such items is that you can easily take them off when the weather becomes warmer.
Wear closed shoes
During this cold season, it is better to avoid wearing sandals and all kinds of open shoes. This is because when you expose your feet to cold temperatures, you might be exposing your feet to cold sores. Furthermore, it will be difficult to maneuver through muddy areas if you are wearing muddy shoes. Being in closed shoes during cold weather will not only keep your feet warm, but it will also protect your feet from mud and easy your time in the bathroom as there will be no need to scrap the dirt that comes with wearing open shoes.
