When it comes to your winter wardrobe, goal number one should be to protect yourself from this cold weather in Nairobi. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun with winter fashion.


High-quality jacket with enough space to layer clothing underneath is the most suitable outfit for this weather. Opt for nylon, polyester, or water-repellent materials to keep your outer layers dry. 


Also, Use wool, fleece, or down as a thick middle layer that will insulate your body, and avoid wearing cotton as your base layer. Here are some fashion tips that will help you on Winter:


  1. Keep it tight. Tight-fitting clothing will help prevent wind chill. Swap wide-leg jeans for skinny jeans, which also help visually balance out oversize knit sweaters and chunky boots. 
  • Wear fleece-lined tights or leggings under skirts and dresses to keep your legs warm.

  1. Wear long coats. Cropped puffers might be trendy, but if your aim is to stay warm, you need to keep your entire torso covered. Make sure you have at least one long sweater and coat for the coldest days.
  2. Accept that you can pair sweaters with skirts. Try a chunky cable knit pullover with a knee-length pencil skirt. Looser maxi and midi skirts work with sweaters.
  3. Invest in wool. Moisture-wicking wool keeps you warm and dry all day. It’s a great option for work-friendly cardigans and comfy beanies.
  4. Avoid cotton. Cotton is an amazing, breathable material, but it holds a lot of water, making it less ideal for winter weather. Save the plaid flannel shirts, corduroy pants, and college sweatshirts for fall and spring. 

  1. Consider a statement coat. If you’re going to wear the same winter coat every day, it should be something that makes you feel good. Instead of the same old neutrals, you might look for a puffy down jacket or classy wool coat in a bright color.
  2. Treat your hat, gloves, and scarf as accessories. If you wear the same winter coat every day, you can switch things up with a variety of scarves, hats, and gloves.
  3. Ensure that your clothing is weatherproofed. Before winter, take your favorite boots to a shoe. 

Thick boots, gloves, and a good hat are essential to staying warm when it’s particularly frigid out. If necessary, pick up some hand warmers and stuff them in your shoes and gloves to keep your extremities warm.
