What to wear in winter?

nourinea
Hello,

I'm planning a trip to Iceland in the next year, end of January to be more precise and I was wondering if you could help with what to pack in my suitcase to survive the lovely (yet changing) Icelandic winter weather?
I've bought a 3-in-1 waterproof/windproof jacket a couple of months ago (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Jack-Wolfskin-Crystal-Mountain-Womens/dp/B00K7JGHB0) and a pair of hiking shoes (http://www.mountainwarehouse.com/footwear/walking-boots/womens/hurricane-waterproof-iso-grip-womens-boot-p11645.aspx?cl=GREY) and I was wondering if it was enough for winter in Iceland?
I've read a lot of blogs saying that layering, and having thermal underwear was absolutely necessary: could you give me an example of a day-to-day outfit for a rather cold winter day? What fabrics are the most efficient in keeping you warm (and dry)? Really looking forward to that trip :-) and hoping to see the Northern lights again! Thanks.
