To keep cold temperatures at bay, you can don a pair of warm thermal tights beneath your skirts, dresses and pants. The thermal construction often features a thin layer of fleece or nylon that traps body heat while repelling cold winds. The tights even have a light waterproof exterior that withstands a few moments of rainfall as you walk to your next destination. Here are five places to obtain these tights for under $13 each.
