So, the more air between your body and your clothes, the larger the insulating layer, the more body heat will be maintained, and the warmer you will be. Which brings me to layers: The more clothing you add under that oversized garment, the more “air layers” you will create and the more heat you will retain. (If you’d like a lengthier and nerdier explanation of thermal conductivity, call me; I’m your girl.)
But, as much as I love physics, we don’t need heat transfer equations to help us stay warm, just a little strategic shopping. To that end, I’ve picked four of the coziest, most layer-friendly pieces at two local shops in DC to help you (and me) survive yet another chilly season.
