From beanies and gloves to coats and turtleneck tops, here are some Taobao winter essentials you’ll need to pack for your escapade into sub-zero temperatures. The best part? They are completely affordable!
If you’re about to embark on any one of the VTLs this coming winter, congrats! We are so excited for you. However, after two years of being stowed away under your bed or in the far end of your closet, some of these winter essentials might need to be replaced. And we understand that winter wear can be expensive — and we’re only going to wear it once a year at most — so how do we get these items without breaking the bank? Enter: Taobao winter essentials!
3. Long Johns
Everyone knows that long johns are a must for winter destinations, but they can be quite expensive. Getting them on Taobao will definitely save you a ton as compared to retail brands in Singapore.
For Her & Him: S$34
4. Turtleneck Tops
Turtleneck tops complete my winter fashion dreams. They are snuggly, warm, and incredibly stylish. Layering them on top of long johns help to ensure that you’ll be well prepared even against the strongest winter winds.
For Her: S$8 / For Him: S$18
Winter jeans have an inner lining of fur-like material to keep your legs warm. So if you’re going somewhere that has heavy snowfall and temperatures hit below 0°C, you’ll need some winter jeans.
For Her: S$25 / For Him: S$22
Wear long thick socks to brace the cold, especially if you’re going to be trudging through thick layers of snow.
For Her & Him (4 Pairs): S$10
Just like socks, your boots need to be tall and thick, so that snow won’t be able to get into your boots. Make sure you get boots with anti-slip soles as the ground can get quite slippery when it’s covered in snow.
For Her: S$33 / For Him: S$66
A nice winter coat completes your winter look and protects you against strong winds. Get a coat with pockets to keep your phone or camera so that they are easily accessible.
For Her: S$32 / For Him: S$60
Don’t forget to keep your hands warm! You could hurt your hands if exposed bare to low temperatures for a prolonged period of time.
For Her & Him: S$3
10. Heat Pads
Place some heat pads in your shoes to make sure your feet are extra warm and snuggly even when walking through snow. It makes a world of difference!
For Her & Him (20 pieces): S$2.50
