Do you like bundling up when going out in the winter. Let me elaborate, I mean wearing sweaters, jackets, coats, gloves and wool hats etc. to stay warm? Do you do it because you like it or is it more of a necessity. I personally hate wearing any kind of cold weather clothing except maybe a light sweater or a leather coat and only if it is for a short period of time. I wear t shirts, polo shirts and Jeans year round regardless of the temperatures. I dont like to feel all bundled up. To me it feels uncomfortable. When I go to work in the morning I try to start my truck about 5 minutes befor leaving so it is warm when I get in so I only wear my jacket to walk from the house to the truck and as soon as I get in the truck the jacket comes right off. I would like to hear some opinions.

lol I hate bundling up. I feel like there is so much going on under my armpits. Although I tend to like colder weather places, that is the only part I hate about cold weather, the bundling up part.

I remember my mama made me wear long jonhs when it was cold out and it felt soooooo weird. Hard to explain.

I just make sure my hands and ears are covered if there is a danger of frostbite. Otherwise if its too cold I just walk faster. I usually go with a wool coat, gloves and scarf (sometimes scarves are too hot)

Where I live it is mild. So bundling up means: coat, umbrella and maybe a scarf. Usually not needed. Unless for inside.

Gloves are generally unnecessary, except for a few winter evenings. I am kinda jealous of all of those winter accessories. We have no need. I wear pretty much the same stuff all year.

I can brave the coldest weather with my old M-65 with liner attached or a Carhartt winter work jacket. For clothes I prefer jeans, t-shirt tucked in with a hoodie or sweat shirt over the t-shirt. Flannels over a t-shirt is ok too. I used to do that more in the past. I like untucked sweatshirts and hoodies over a tucked in t-shirt better now. For winter I always wear boots. Either Wolverine Durashock workboots or Sears Diehard Duty boots. Sometimes leather combat boots too. No cowboy boots in the winter or sneakers. Your feet get too cold in the cowboy boots and the smooth sole is like walking on ice all the time. As for sneakers, I hate snow getting crammed inside through the ankle part. I won't wear them in winter. I do wear leather boat shoes though.

I make sure all parts that I could not live without if frostbitten are covered well. Otherwise I layer with a shirt and sweater (sometimes). It really depends on how cold it is outside and how long I am actually going to be outside. Since I do not work outside of my home though I am not generally outside very long. Taking out the trash or going to the vehicle to drive into town and run errands and go to the market.

It doesn't have a 5 star rating for no reason. They really keep you warm. Not so much in fashion though.

I love warm weather clothes! Cute sweaters, boots, coats, etc. I am cold-natured too. So I normally am in sleeves when everyone else is sweltering.

I live in a place that has "cold" weather for about two months. So, while I would love to dress for winter, we don't really have one.

Where I live...bundling up is not optional...it is needed...can be 20 below zero....that is without wind chill factored in! I dress less for fashion...more for function.
