Learn how to layer fall workwear clothing with the help of Blain’s Farm & Fleet.
Fall weather can be unpredictable. One minute it’s freezing cold…and then the temperature starts to rise. Whether you’re working on the farm or at the jobsite, dressing for outdoor work in the fall can be tricky. Luckily with the help of Blain’s Farm & Fleet, you can learn how to layer fall workwear, and focus on the task at hand.
The Base Layer
For those colder days, you’ll want to start with a thin base layer, such as long underwear. It gives you a warm base underneath your bulkier clothing. The best way to stay warm is to stay dry. Look for base layers made from moisture-wicking fabric. The fabric pulls moisture away from your body, keeping you warm and dry. Wool or synthetic fabrics are both a great option.
The Middle Layer
A middle layer can give you better insulation when it’s colder outside, and also provide a comfortable outer layer for when the temps go up and you need to shed a layer of clothing. A quality work shirt should be built to not only help you get the job done, but keep you comfortable all day. Flannel, chambray and twill shirts all work well when paired with a base layer.
The Outer Layer
The outer layer is meant to protect you from the elements. This outer layer should protect you from wind, rain, and cold while you’re hard at work. It should have enough room for your other layers while providing you enough mobility to get your work finished.
Keep your feet warm and dry with a quality pair of work boots and thick, warm boot socks. Some work boots are waterproof, or you can wear work rain boots, depending on the weather and your work environment.
