Thermal underwear isn’t always boring. Cool kits that keep you warm

You don’t need to be out on the ski slope.

To make sure you don’t get cold during your walks, we suggest that you think about buying thermal underwear, which is not only useful for frequenters of alpine resorts. The main function of thermal underwear, or “first layer”, is to keep you warm. So make sure you carefully read the composition when choosing a set: polypropylene, polyester, polyamide and elastane are the best choices for this purpose. Cotton, wool and silk are also plentiful, but remember that natural fibres tend to wick away moisture better and wear out quicker.

If aesthetics is just as important to you, there’s good news: ‘thermal underwear’ and ‘mortal boredom’ rarely meet in the same sentence. There are plenty of models with original designs and, yes, they can and should be worn even by urban dwellers in the tenth generation. Pair thermal underwear with oversize blazers and trekking boots, voluminous down jackets and puffer boots. You could even try a Miu Miu look and wear thermal underwear under a dress combination, complete with long gloves and a knit cap, like Audrey Hepburn in Charade.

One last tip: Don’t be afraid of bright colors and uncommon prints, because when better than in winter to please yourself and others with crazy leggings and jumpsuits. Look for the most interesting options in our selection.
