It’s not, but there are other ways you can stay warm during these freezing conditions.
The front, that brought snow to some parts of the country, is on its way out but cold temperatures are expected to continue over the next few days.
Some provinces are even bracing themselves for a second cold front.

Invest in a pair of good boots
Boots are a must-have for winter. They come in all shapes and sizes – more importantly they will keep your toes warm!
Wear them with stockings like Pabi Moloi for extra warmth on those freezing cold days.
Embrace faux fur
Faux fur is your friend on those winter days when you feel like you are living near the North Pole.

Buy a neutral coloured coat
Invest in a neutral coloured coat and/or jacket you can wear with just about every outfit. Long or short, a coat is the perfect way to keep warm this winter.

Layer it up

The sun might be shining in the morning, but the temperature is still very low from the previous night. So you bundle up warmly, and towards the middle of the day, you might need to take off a few items because of the warmer conditions.
Wear a doek
