10 must-have winter wears for anyone in delhi

Winter is here and the warm clothes are out in the wardrobe. In cities like Delhi, the temperature is unpredictable on a daily basis. The average temperature in Delhi can vary between 6.5 °C and 15 °C .

So if you are staying in North India, and especially in Delhi, throughout the winter season, you must posses a number of winter wears. There are a variety of winter wears and accessories available in the market.

Those who have been staying in Delhi for many years would have collected a number of winter wears during the successive winters. For those who migrated to the city recently, there will be a limited collection of winter wears.

So I chose Myntra products here. The prices range between Rs 250-25000. You can follow the links to the products.

Just like you buy from a shop, you get the option of return, exchange and alteration for the products.

Sweater

There are a variety of sweaters available in the market. Sweaters can be thick or thin depending on the knitting and the quality of the wool.

During the beginning and the end of winter, we disregard the sweater. Be Caution!! You can end up with serious ailments. Buy Sweaters between the range of Rs 700-5000.

Any knitted top is a sweater. A sweater can be known by other names like pullover and jumper.

Cardigan

Cardigans are sweaters which are open in the front. They can either be with buttons or without buttons. A light cardigan is an essential for everyone to protect oneself from health scares during the beginning and end of winter of season. Price ranges from Rs 400 to Rs 10000.

I have chosen H&M brand because their style is new and refreshing. And they are providing a lot of discounts.

Coat

The Coats seem heavy, sophisticated and not affordable. There is even doubts whether coats are required for Indian winters were the temperature hardly goes less than 6 °C .

However it is always advisable to have one coat handy for harsh winters. Buy anyone of the coat types – long sleeve coat, overcoat and trench coat.

While going out, especially in the peek of winter, a coat keeps you warm and comfortable. Winter coats are available from the range of Rs 1500 upto 15000. Buy one coat and it can be a lifelong asset.

In case you are unable to purchase now, you can buy at discount rates during off-season. The fashion of coats do not change every season.

Jacket

DownJacket and Padded jackets are comfortable for travel and official wear. The fleece jacket looks elegant as a casual and an official wear.

Nehru jacket for men is a fashionable as well as a cosy winter wear. Winter wear Jackets are available from the range of Rs 300-25000.

Thermal Wear

Thermal should be on the top of the list for winter shopping. Thermals are inner wears that keeps you warm in winter.

After the cardigan is worn in mild winter, winter wear thermals are used, when temperature goes down, to keep oneself insulated from the piercing winter chills. Thermals are great money savers.

If you have 2-3 pairs (thermal top and thermal bottom), you can survive a winter season without buying much of other winter wears. Prices range between Rs 300-2000.

Shawl & Stole

Shawls and stoles are mentioned together because stoles are used like shawls also. Shawls are one-large piece of cloth used to cover the upper part of the body.

Shawls are available in a variety of fabric that gives varied degree of warmth. However during mild winter a stole can be used like a shawl.

A stole is mostly used round the neck. Stoles are cheaper than shawls, at the same time they look glamorous and trendy.

H&M got winter white stoles. In fact they have winter white collection in almost all sections of winter wear.

There are a variety of stoles that add glamour to any winter wear. Shawls are available from the range of Rs 400-13,000; while stoles are available from Rs 250-4000.

Muffler & Scarf

The functions of all these loose cloths – muffler, scarf, stole and shawl interchange, depending of the fashion sense of the wearer. In the above picture the scarf is worn round the neck, when traditionally it is used to cover the head.

If you know how to carry yourself in the winter attires, then all these wraps add to the fashion quotient.

Cap

A majority of us, Indians, consider wearing caps as not so glamorous. Both men and women would rather bear the brunt of the harsh winter, rather than cover the head properly.

However the bold ones are daring to go bald; and fashionistas are changing hats to remain change. This winter, let us make ourselves look trendy by wearing beanies.

Apart from being the fashionably in thing, a beanie can protect the ear and heads during winter. Prices range from Rs 250-2500.

Gloves

On Christmas eve, there was a party and we were out in the cold for a few hours. I was the only adult wearing a glove, the rest were kids.

After that chilling experience, my friends vouched that they will always carry gloves or mittens in their handbags during winter.

The big learning was that bare hands can make you shiver. And that gloves should not be used just as an official accessory, they can very much be an essential part of casual and party wears.

Socks

When our elders insist us on wearing a socks from the beginning of winter, we consider it as pestering. Truth is if you keep your feet warm, you can avoid major health hazards. If you are still reluctant to wear socks or stockings, you will bear the consequence as you age. Wear at least a shoe-liner. Prices range from Rs 100-2000.

Top 7 Grooming Products for Men

The morning routine of most men hasn’t evolved to this day beyond shaving and washing face with the closest bar of soap. Time has come when changes must be made! Why? There are many reasons. First of all, skin is your biggest organ and if you want to look nice you should pay more attention to it. Other than that, well ladies love guys that look and smell fresh.

I know that you are not one of those guys that will spend two hours in front of the mirror, neither am I. During past few months I was checking for some grooming products for men that are easy to use, don’t take much time to apply or wash. Of course, you will be thanking yourself one day for actually doing something for yourself before it is too late.

Cleanser with Charcoal

The key ingredient in this cream is charcoal that is known to be one of the best absorbing materials. It is like a magnet that captures dirt from pores. Once you wash your face with it, you will have that squeaky clean feeling. A small package of this product will last you for a long time if it foams really well.

Exfoliating Scrub

When your skin is full of dirt after a day out, workout outdoors or any other a bit more extreme situation you will need to pull cleanse properly. Exfoliating Scrub is amazing grooming product that will take care of anything. What is more important, it is great to use before shaving as it will clean dead cells from your face.

Shaving Cream

I have really sensitive skin so whenever I change my shaving cream I get a nasty rash. Anyway, a friend of mine was using a Shaving Cream and forced me to try it. Being a good friend, I just took it to prove that I’ll get a rash. First of all, to clear this up – no, there was no any kind of rash. Moreover, I was feeling amazing after shaving. The scent is so amazing that I had a feeling almost all day that I got my morning shave in some exclusive barber shop. This cream is not cheap but it is well worth every cent!

Post Shave Balm

For the past 5 years, I am using the same Post Shave Balm. It is a must for me. Its alcohol and fragrance-free balm with vitamin E and chamomile. As I said, I have a great difficulty keeping my skin rash free so I will recommend everyone to use it. In combination with my Shaving Cream, it works amazing.  You won’t need anything more than this.

Anti-Aging Serum

The anti-ageing serum is not a must for sure but when you decide to put a little effort to keep yourself clean and protected during the day. The cream that I use is clinically tested and proven to deliver anti-ageing results.

 Anti-Fatigue Eye Gel for Men

We all know that amazing “racoon” morning look with black circles and puffy bags under eyes. In order to fix this issue, Anti-Fatigue Eye Gel with cooling effect is interesting grooming product that you should consider. It comes with a roller ball that helps with applying it around the eyes.

Beard Oil – Conditioner and Softener

If you have a beard, you really need to consider using a product that will keep it nice, straight and fragrant. Moreover, it will clean those nasty skin flakes. I use a beard oil which is suitable for all skin types as it comes with vitamin A, Jojoba Oil, Sandalwood Oil and Apricot Kernel Oil. It comes in a pretty small bottle but you will need just 2-4 drops of bear oil to make your beard softer and shinier.

We don’t live in a cave anymore. If you want to feel good and look good you need to take care of yourself. Self-confidence is the biggest problem for every modern man. By using grooming product for men that I have listed, you will not lose belly fat or be prettier but you will be more appealing for sure.
