What to Wear in Edinburgh in Winter

The weather in Edinburgh in winter is unpredictable at best. One minute you’re staring up at blue skies and sunshine, and the next, you’re running for cover as giant raindrops fall from the sky. These fast and frequent changes can make it difficult to know just how to dress when you plan on spending a day out and about exploring the city.

January and February are when Edinburgh is at its coldest. Temperatures hover around 3C and you can expect mostly cloudy and wet conditions. This is exactly the weather I had throughout my time in Edinburgh. The skies were grey and cloudy, the winds were forceful, and I definitely dodged a raindrop or two.

It was cold, but the sun was shining, the air was clear and the city was alive. The conditions were perfect for exploring this beautiful Baltic city. So, I did what any good adventure does: I bundled up and set out.

Although the days were cold, I wasn’t thanks to a few excellent wardrobe choices. If you’re planning on visiting Gdansk (or Poland) in winter, here are the six key pieces I recommend you bring to keep you warm while looking stylish on your trip.
