If you’re feeling the chill right now, put down the puffa jacket and step away from the snood – here are some more stylish ways to stay warm.
Brrrr – it’s cold out there! When the weather’s so grim, it’s tempting to wrap up in every piece of clothing you own just to ward off the cold (either that or stay in bed, and we don’t think our boss would approve of the latter).
Keeping warm in winter isn’t all about thermal long johns and three pairs of socks, though. You can be stylish *and* snugly – here are a few ideas!
Wrap up in a chic throw
Although we wish we could drag our duvet off the bed and create a den in the living room every day, if we’ve got guests or need to function in regular society, it’s not really an option. Enter the chic throw – a stylish blanket you can keep over the arm of the sofa, ready to pull on when you’re feeling chilly. We love this brown tweed version.
Light all the candles
Candles have become decorative must-haves for any stylish home, but when it’s chilly they’re better used for their original purpose – keeping stuff warm. Dot a few cheap jar candles around the room and they’ll kick out enough heat to keep you toasty all day long.
Become a caped crusader
For seriously anti-social weather, staying stylish is low on the list of priorities. But before you decide to wear your sleeping bag as a coat, consider a cape…
Throw a wool cape or poncho on over your regular coat – it’ll look sleek and stylish and provide an extra layer of warmth for those really cold days. We love this fringed version and this cute dogtooth print style.
Upgrade your socks
Stay with us here – we promise this one works. When your feet are cold everything else is cold too, so it makes sense to keep your toes toasty. But don’t just stick on another pair of socks and hope for the best – it’s time to upgrade!
Go for cashmere or cable knit socks in classic grey and wear them bunched up over jeans for ultimate warmth without sacrificing style.
