How the climate influences clothing choice

As is common knowledge, winter has different characteristics depending on the city. In some it is very humid and it rains a lot – hello, London! In others, the climate is drier with sharp winds – Lisbon is a good example. In some places, snow is constant throughout the cold season. Thus, the clothes chosen for each of these places cannot, in any way, be the same.

The climate crucially influences the choice of winter clothes. For the most humid places (with rain and snow), you should opt for moisture resistant or waterproof clothing. When the wind is intense, give preference to windbreakers.

In addition, its thermal sensitivity must be taken into account. If you are more sensitive, heavier clothing will be needed to warm you up satisfactorily. For this reason, we usually provide the ideal temperatures for the use of each piece; we believe that this information makes all the difference! To help with this, it is worth checking the RealFeel option AccuWeather , which provides the actual thermal sensation in certain temperature in the place searched. It is quite a help!
