Introduction: How to Dress for Ice Skating

So, you want to go ice skating, but have no idea how to dress? Read this, and it will hopefully help.

Step 1: Wear Comfortable Pants.

People make a mistake by wearing jeans to an ice rink. It isn't impossible to skate while wearing jeans, but since falls are highly likely, you want something that will dry quickly. Also, you want something that will not constrict your legs, so you can move more easily. Leggings or sweatpants would be a good option.

Step 2: Wear Layers.

You'll want to be bundled up when you first step on the ice, but since you will sweat, you might get to a point that you want to just skate in short sleeves. Wear a t-shirt and a jacket.

Step 3: Wear Gloves.

Your hands can get very cold while skating, so it's a good idea to wear warm gloves.

Step 4: Wear Socks, Especially If You're Using Rental Skates.

Rental skates can cause bad blisters, so I would recommend wearing socks.

Step 5: Hit the Ice!

Go have fun skating!

I hope this was helpful.
