Cotton is Rotten, avoid it if you can. There is a reason towels are made of the stuff – they soak up water. And sweat next to your body can make the temperature seem more extreme (you feel colder in the cold, and hotter in the heat). This goes for your socks, too. Feet sweat. DriFit, CoolMax,UnderArmour a.k.a polyester, or “technical” shirts, make your feet and body feel SO much happier! If you have to wear cotton, use it as a layer over a moisture wicking layer (the DriFit, etc. that moves the wetness away from your body).

Dress like it’s 20 degrees warmer outside. Your body will quickly warm up!
