Instead of looking at the coat as a fashion accessory, invest in a good coat that can prevent you from the extreme cold. The heavier and more tightly woven it is the better. Also look for good quality wool. Make sure that you air it out so you do not smell. Leather coats are not a great idea in times of extreme cold.

Instead of wearing one sweater or a coat that is heavy and makes you uncomfortable, you should try layering. Layering is more effective when it comes to beating the cold. Start from thermal wear and keep adding to it in the form of tops and light sweaters. The advantage with layering is that when you get into a warm room, you can always take off a few layers.
3. Keep your feet warm
It is very important that you always have woolen socks handy when there is an extremely cold weather. You should wear one all the time irrespective of where you are and if you are heading out, you should carry an extra pair in case your socks get wet. Feet tend to get cold quicker than other parts and it is essential that you keep them warm.
