will be tough, but you can make do as long as you have a warm jacket

Winter coats are an essential component of the season’s attire,
keeping your torso and the rest of your body warm and cozy in your
own body heat. The best winter coats serve their practical purpose
and have the style that makes you look great too! Choosing the attractive
characteristics of winter coats is mainly up to you; there are almost
as many styles of winter coats as the range in personality of the
people who wear them!
Depending on what activity you will most often be engaged in, winter
coats are suited to keep you warm without inhibiting your movements.
For skiing and other snow activities, most winter coats are made
with waterproof materials, conveniently positioned zipper pockets,
and insulating qualities. These types of winter coats should fit
you well with room to spare for other layers like sweatshirts, turtle
necks and undergarments. Many sports winter coats have loops in
the sleeve openings to hook your thumb in. The sleeve will then
stay about halfway up your hand, perfect for finger use and warmth
For riding bikes and driving cars, waist length winter coats are
the most convenient. In the modern day and age, slimming is the
main theme for almost all products, so the poofy look has become

keep winter coats trim and efficient, fabrics have been developed
that are thinner and less bulky, yet just as insulating.
Trench coats are growing in popularity, for all fashion levels.
People enjoy the ease of slipping winter coats over their jeans,
dresses and any other clothing. This style comes in many lengths,
but most people find that a three quarter version is more versatile
than the longest or shortest trench coats.
Knee length coats help to keep more of your body warm, and usually
come with a tie or belt for the middle section, to keep your figure
looking great this winter!
When shopping for children’s winter coats, keep in mind their
growth rate, and that usually a coat will only last one to two seasons.
It can be passed down to the next child, though, to get more use
out of your purchase. Many sales pop out right after the season,
so to find some great deals, shop around January or February for
clearance winter coats. Usually you should by the coat a size too
big for your child. If it still a little roomy come next winter,
they will be warm and be able to comfortably fit layers and mittens!
Whichever route you choose in winter coats, keep in mind that the
main point is to stay warm! For colder climates, this is a larger
factor than in mild temperatures in which winter coats are more
of a fashionable apparel.
