In Silent Hill: Revelation, it appeared to me that Adelaide Clemens was wearing so many layers of clothing.

Even IMDb confirmed that:

Heather's on-set outfit consists of a stunning amount of layers. Aside from a presumable set of underwear, she wears a white undershirt and dark purple athletic pants, a paint-splattered tank top and a dark purple rubbery skirt, an orange hoodie, a cream leather vest, an olive green jacket, and a red and black plaid coat, making a total of seven layers.

But what was the reason for making Adelaide wear so much clothing? Is there any out of universe answer for it or is it more of a game homage? Or some production decision?

Because it was winter.

The white undershirt and thin-fabric top are both tank-tops. The leggings are to keep her legs warm in the cold. The two overcoats are mostly worn when she is outside.

The red hoodie is a light-weight sweater-like fabric.

Having grown up in a cold region near Lake Ontario with parents who wouldn't let you touch the thermostat, I can say that layering is a good option for regulating temperature.

At left you can see the under-and over-shirts. At right is a capture from a few minutes into the movie where you can see many students bundled up and wearing winter hats.

    Not that it matters to the movie or script, but the movie was filmed in Toronto, Ontario, Canada by the way. It looks like it was -7C at 9AM on the day they started filming.
