Appropriate Clothes for Columbus by Season

Here are some suggestions to help you build a wardrobe that is appropriate for the changing weather you are likely to experience while in Columbus.

Winter

Since winters in Columbus tend to be cold, dry and windy, having the right winter clothing is vital to staying warm and comfortable. A heavy weight, warm, and versatile outer jacket is a must for anyone during this time of year, and if the jacket is waterproof, even better since Columbus does occasionally get rainy days and can even hail during the winter. There may also be light snow so you should invest in a good pair of gloves as well as a scarf which can make a huge difference in keeping out the wind and the cold. If it's really cold, you might consider wearing a thermal or base layer under your clothing. In fact, layering clothing is a great idea in Columbus since this keeps your body insulated and allows you to remove some extra layers when you are indoors. It's also smart to have a practical pair of winter boots which will be necessary if it does snow and which will keep your toes warm too! The fabric of choice for a Columbus winter is wool since it is much warmer than acrylics and dries quicker if it gets wet.

Spring

Although the weather can still be a little uncertain during the springtime in Columbus, you can generally look forward to warmer weather. What that means is that color makes a return to clothing and you can start to wear lightweight fabrics like cotton, nylon, linen, etc. Springtime means you can trade your winter boots in for ankle boots and even sandals for sunny days. For both men and women, light sweaters, tees, and button-up shirts are perfect when paired with jeans or slacks. Scarves are still a great idea, especially to bundle up with on chilly evenings and a light jacket or snuggly cardigan will serve you well for the cooler days. Spring in Columbus has been known to be a time for tornadoes which will require breaking out some of those winter pieces again to brave the high wind conditions. A woolen cap or beanie is another good way to deal with gusty tornado weather.

Summer

Summertime is typically the season that most residents of Columbus look forward to the most after the cool temperatures of the year give way to the warm and sunny days that can reach highs of mid 70s°F - 80s°F. With the onset of the sunshine and higher temperatures in Columbus, the air gets much more dry and warm. Dressing for summertime here means keeping cool with cotton fabrics and more bold, bright colors. Dresses with straps or no sleeves and skirts or rompers for women, and tank tops, shorts, and t-shirts for both, are all easy to wear and will keep you cool during this season. Sandals, espadrilles, and flip flops are popular types of footwear and many like to wear caps or hats other styles to protect against the UV from the sun. For trips to the nearby rivers or lakes, it'll also be time to break out your swimsuit!

Fall

The fall season is as beautiful as it is unpredictable. With mild to cool temperatures and the possibility of storms, including hail and lightening storms, it's best to be on the safe side and dress with clothing that can go from moderate to extreme conditions. What this means is a return to layering with heavy weight fabrics like corduroy, wool blends, and acrylics as well as leather and suedes. Boots are the preferred footwear for this time of year along with the perennial scarf and hat combo. For women, sweaters, pants, jeans, and long skirts are all good options and for men, pants in thick fabrics, sweaters, sweatshirts and Henley's all work well.

Getting used to a new and bustling city like Columbus along with it's varied and sometimes uncertain weather patterns may take a little time but with the right wardrobe you can certainly be prepared in style!
