Stylish in the snow.

6 Dec

THE SNOW can cause many a problem – for some it’s trying to shovel the car out every morning to get into uni, for others it’s being snowed in without bread and milk but for us fabulous fierce fashionistas surely our biggest snow problem is what do we wear in this crazy weather?

FORGET what you thought about quilted jackets – gone are the days where the classic Barbour padded coat would only belong on Cornish farmers and Arctic explorers. Finally style and function have merged together to become one of the must have items of the season.

The sleek, slim-fitting silhouette paired with a feather light filling keeps you warm and toasty while giving you those all important fashion credentials.

If you want to stand out from the crowd and have enough nerve go for a version in this season’s hottest colour – a ravishing red. If you want a timeless piece that will last for many winters to come go for a classic khaki. Or if you can’t make up your mind and have money to spend (or presents to ask for) go for both!

FROM flinging yourself around at a festival to sledging in the snow – a good ol’ pair of wellingtons are a definite wardrobe staple. But as much as we want those to-die-for leopard print wellies to match all our outfits they simply do not so please leave the printed kind on the toddlers.

Instead go for the classic and everlasting green which will soon become your go-to shoe for life. A stylish mock croc black wellington will go with all of your outfits from a mini ditsy floral dress to your favourite polka dot swing skirt. If you to want to be whisked back to those childhood puddle splashing days go for a radical red a la Williams Wish Wellingtons .

A must-do when wearing your incredibly OTM snow repelling boots is to make sure you have a pair of uber-chic knee-length thick woollen socks peeking out the top and this time you can go for a clashing print.

HEAD, shoulders, hands and necks (hands and necks) – in this snowy weather you must accessorise correctly. Whether it’s a tartan deer hunting hat, a faux fur leopard skin scarf or even a pair of customised magic gloves make sure you don’t leave the house without them.

To make that all important sexy Snowman you must invest in a good pair of gloves. This season it’s all about multi-way – think fingerless gloves mixed with a minxy mitten. They feed even the hungriest fashionistas appetite with their practicality, snugness and most importantly they keep you stylish.

Keep your head warm (well half of it) with one of the most bizarre and surprising fashion hits of the winter – the fantasy fur headband. It totally doesn’t make sense but it certainly looks good and will put you on top of the fashion league.

Bulky knits, silky prints and everything in between, scarves are a must do in the snowy weather. There’s a whole matter of different and stylish choices from a hooded panda scarf to a Fair Isle snood or even a 3D flower extravaganza. If you dare splash the cash go for a classic little number that will last in your wardrobe forever – a cool camel cashmere blended scarf will make you a fashion icon.
