I suggest you read my article 5 tips to dress when it’s cold. I addressed one of my favorite tricks when temperatures are negative: the superposition of coats. And yes! You can wear two coats to keep you warm. I tested this method and even under minus 15 degrees I was not cold. Wear a coat near the body and add a coat over boyfriend. Of course, it is necessary that the colors go well together and coat the bottom is invisible when the top coat is closed. For that prefer a top coat with high collar (they also hold much warmer).

As usual, the Japanese brand Uniqlo specializes in smart fabric technology, ideal for chilly. I do not spend the winter without my Heat Tech, I also speak of these smart pullovers in my article How to dress when it’s cold . The Ultra Light Down jacket comes in several shapes and colors.

Here is a guide to not go wrong in buying this dangerous piece:

- Never choose jacket adjusted too much or too little: there is downright vulgar. We chose it for its size.
- Never choose jacket with shiny effect. No, no and no !We opt for a matt effect that will bring a chic jacket if the “sportswear”.
- Do not choose too long jackets
Also be careful with the overall look of the jacket you choose: is she standing? Is it too soft? Is the material rather beautiful? Is there no small foams trying to escape while you’re not spent in cash? A piece like this chooses quality!
Here are the recipe for a nice jacket. It must be:

The jacket and dress
Why not dare jacket with a dress? In order not to overdress the dress and give it a casual style, opt for a sweater worn over it. Remember, this is one of my favorite tips to wear your summer clothes winter . Wear flat shoes: moccasins, brogues or low boots and maybe a pair of beautiful platform shoes. Avoid waders or too elaborate shoes that do not lend themselves at all to the jacket.
