The kids are back in school, the leaves are changing color, and the loved-and-loathed Canadian chill is starting to threaten us with impending winter. Unfortunately, snow pants are hardly an option for those of us who don’t spend our days on the slopes.
So what’s an always-freezing girl to do? Bring on the long johns, and not the waffle-knit leg-fattening ones of yore.
WinterSilks long underwear is sleek, warm, and revolutionary in the world of layering. Inspired over 30 years ago by the same blustery winter winds that still taunt us, WinterSilks refuses to sacrifice fashion for comfort with their lightweight, breathable silk garments.
WinterSilks knows something most of us don’t: all-natural silk wicks away moisture, so it keeps you both warm and dry. You won’t overheat indoors despite feeling cozy when you step into the sub-zero air.
WinterSilks’ long underwear line for women boasts a Snowflake Guide, ranking the warmth level of each piece, ensuring a perfect long-john match. So if you’re active or your winter isn’t frigid (hello, Vancouver-ites), you can stick with “warm” and avoid “warmest.” It’s simple, comfy fashion math.
And to appeal to our practical sides, most of their silks are machine-washable, and even their most heavyweight pieces peak at an affordable $50 or less.
The easy-to-layer pieces are designed to fit most lifestyles and wardrobes. Curl up in a heavyweight turtleneck, lounge in sumptuous silk cashmere pants, or ensure extra warmth with a leopard print long john top under your favorite outfit. A lace inset camisole will help transition your summer wardrobe into cooler seasons.
The Wisconsin-based store is the States’ premiere filament-silk merchant, with a long history of top-notch customer service. Order from their catalog, or shop from the comfort of your laptop thanks to their new online store.
WinterSilks has recently expanded its shipping to Canada and beyond, so start shopping. Beat winter at its game and be ready for the chill this year!
