I need an advice from people living in cold countries. I am coming from a very hot country to a very cold one. I needed to buy stuff for the coming winter, so I watched closely people in the streets for realizing what to buy. May be somebody here from cold countries can explain to me how do women here dress in pantihose (tights) with tiny skirts when outside is below 0 degrees Celsius (32 F) and it snows?!!!! I find it a nice way to dress up, but the moment I look at it, I am getting a shiver and I wonder how do they not get an hypothermia. Do the tights really protect the body from getting cold?
