STYLE GUIDE: LAYERING UP

When the weather gets colder its important to dress appropriately. Layering is key and be sure to always dress for 20 degrees warmer than it is outside. Read on to see what to wear when the chill arrives.

1. BASELAYER

The base-layer sits right up against your skin. You want a base-layer designed to move moisture and keep you dry. The Nike DriFit knit above keeps you dry and is seamless to avoid chafing and irritation. Thumbholes keep your hands warm when the weather gets cold. 

2. Midlayer

The most versatile piece in your wardrobe is typically a mid-layer piece. The mid-layer will go over the long sleeve base-layer when the temps dip down into the low 40s and 30s. The versatility of the mid-layer allows you to wear it over a tank/short/long sleeves or under a shell depending on the temps. If you need one and only have money to buy one piece this season this is the one.

3. Shell

Last but not least. The shell is key on those windy cold nights. Made of a wind proof and water resistant material the shell will go over the top of the base-layer and mid-layer when the temps dips below 20 degrees. The shell is awesome on warmer rainy days as well when paired with a long or short sleeve t-shirt.

We hope this gives you an idea of what to wear throughout the winter months. If you have any questions do not hesitate to reach out to the friendly Rhode Runner Staff!
