Winter is rare in Karachi. Here is a run-down of the essential items you need to be equipped with:
Yes, you read that right: sunscreen. Just because the weather isn’t as punishing as it was in the summer, that doesn’t mean you can skip out on sunscreen. Your skin is still very much exposed to UV rays, potential cause of skin damage. And we’re sure you don’t want to risk damaging your skin during the winter season.
Vitamin D Supplement
Vitamin D is vital for good overall health and strong bones. Your body produces its own vitamin D from sunlight. However, during the winter, days are shorter and the amount of sunlight is less, a supplement is the solution! Our advice: buy your Vitamin D supplement at a licensed pharmacy.
Whatever quintessential hot drink is your cup of tea (pun intended), pour it in an insulated cup and enjoy it on-the-go. Perfect for taking to college or the office, it’ll surely make your insides warm and tingly.
Plaid is the ultimate cozy essential, especially when paired with your favorite jeans.
Karachi’s weather is unpredictable af. One minute it could be breezy and chilly and the next, it’d feel like summer is in full swing – it’s always best to be prepared. Keep it casual and cozy with an open cardigan. You can layer it on top of a Western outfit (a long sleeved t-shirt with jeans or leggings) or make it look elegant on a more traditional, Eastern outfit like khaddar shalwar kameez that you can very easily dress up or dress down.
Cooler temps are the perfect excuse to be lazy. Slip into a pair of sweatpants and pair with staple knits and blouses – like a striped sweater, for a day spent cozying under a blanket. Pair these with trainers for an errand outside or just slip into your plush indoor slippers for a day spent, well, indoors.
Be prepared, folks and enjoy the sweater weather season because it doesn’t last long.
