What do I wear to keep warm at work?

I work in a cold environment. Just a thermal under my shirt and knee-high socks under my jeans isn't keeping me warm enough. What do you wear, o MeFites who work in cold storage, skating rinks, are in boot camp in the middle of winter, or just live in colder climates than this Southern Californian? (Preferably clothing items that won't bulk me up under my uniform... so, no bulky pajamas under my jeans, please.)

Winter hair woes.

I have long, fine, mostly straight (female) hair that becomes dry, limp and majorly staticky during East Coast winters. My normal hair routine involves moisturizing shampoo, conditioner at the tips, volumizing mousse when my hair is wet, and blow drying upside down with a bristly brush. Sometimes I use some light hairspray to keep it in place. Initially it looks and feels great. But by the end of the day, it is totally dead and full of static. I keep a dryer sheet in my bag to smooth out the static throughout the day but this isn't much of a long-term solution and it doesn't fix the limpness. Advise me please? Any product suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Would appreciate any suggestions or ideas!
