Thrift shopping is a great way to warm up your closet options for under KSh. 1,000

Reports indicate that the cold season might come earlier than expected.

The great news is that June and July are still expected to be the peak of the Kenyan cold season so if you’re still looking for cold season options to tide you through the month, thrift shopping is always a safe bet. 

Places like Toi Market on Ngong Road and Gikomba Market on Kamukunji Road will give you a variety of options to choose from.

Here are a few ways to keep warm with the outfits you have.

Layers

Not only does adding layers to your outfit keep your body warm, if you put thought into it, it could also elevate your outfit. If you’re wearing a blouse or shirt, wear a T-shirt under your blouse and top it off with a thick jacket and scarf.

Drink lots of warm liquids

Some offices provide tea services but if yours doesn’t there’s always the option of carrying your own warm drink using a small thermos. It doesn’t have to be tea or coffee, if you prefer, you could also carry porridge or a soup of your choice. 

Activity

Add a little brisk walk or any activity that increases your heart rate to your routine. This will get your blood pumping and increase your body’s core temperature.

Bundle up 

If you begin your journey to work during the wee hours of the morning, it might be a good idea to add a light hoodie and thick stockings to your outfit. The hood will keep your hair from getting wetting from the dew while the stockings will help keep your legs warm. 

Boot up

Keep your toes toasty by wearing warm, comfortable, closed shoes. Boots are a good option if you have a pair. Depending on how you style your look, boots can go with almost anything.
