What should I wear today?

We went through names of clothes that are used in Finland especially in the winter time, like coat, hat, gloves and so on. These words are useful for someone living in Finland as one cannot make it through the long winter without wearing them. Also, a sentence that is often heard, especially by parents in Finland is “Pue lämpimästi päälle ennen kuin lähdet ulos!” which means Put on warm clothes before going out. This is probably a very useful advice as normally kids, especially teenagers rebel against dressing up in warm clothes when the weather gets cold. It varies according to a generation towards what items this rebellion goes. In my teenager years we would rebel against hats in the winter and when I look at the youth nowadays, it looks like they rebel against covering their ankles.
