I have been to alot of countries during winter and I can say that I am good at layering my winter clothes from 0 to -20 or more .
I will give you information on what to wear and where to buy winter clothing in Singapore
I shall go straight to the point now.
1. First layer (Base layer)
Get a good 100% merino wool thermal top and pant .
I had mine 8 years ago a set cost around $150 , it is totally worth every penny. This is an essential in my luggage bag when I travel in Spring/Autumn/Winter season ( Temperature vary from 15 to -30 degree)
I bought it at Novena Square a hiking winter shop . Last heard from my boss a set sell around $200-$250 now . If you have Friend staying in Australia or New Zealand you can ask them to get you one , will be cheaper than Singapore .
Japan thermal are cheap and good too . If you are going Japan , you can get them at their local department store .
2. Second layer
Top: Fleece or wool sweater
You can get that a Uniqlo . If it’s cold outside -20 degree or more , I will layer my wool sweater first and my fleece jacket . Always wear thinnest material first .
Bottom : Thick leggings with fur inside for man and woman
You can get the top and bottom . You can get that in Taobao ( cheaper) or OG
3. Third layer
For this layer you can wear your thick sweater . Any thick sweater will do .
4. Fourth Layer (Outer Layer)
Get a good thick outer layer with goose feather ( the higher percentage better) and water resistant.
As for bottom , get a water resistant pant if can inside goose feather .
You can get a good Outer at Uniqlo or wintertimes or varies winter shop or Taobao
5. Socks and Winter Snow Boots
Pls get a good winter snow boots with fur inside . you can get a good and cheap one at Taobao. Pls take note that the sole of your boots it’s better to get a thick one . The thicker the sole , the distance between the ground and the feet is further . If can, buy a fur insole also. Sock better to get a wool thick socks. For my shoes , I bought 4 size bigger .
6: Normal Winter Gears
Lastly , Ear muff , winter hat , gloves , mouth/nose cover , scarf , sunglasses and heat pack
Note ** it’s hard to be pretty during such a cold winter . Just keep yourself warm 😉 and have fun
