It’s getting colder and colder now thanks to stupid nature, throwing a hissy fit every year about the same time…so predictable.
Don’t worry about it though, because now you’ve got an excuse to buy some new stuff that will keep you toasty warm and still looking sweet.
Here are some ideas to get you thinking about all the possibilities in these different situations.
Sadly work does not stop for anything, even a ton of snow and low temperatures. The best thing to do for wintery work days is to make sure your footwear is sorted. This is partly to protect your smart kicks from the salt and wet, but also because most work shoes aren’t the best for walking on ice and you don’t want to end up on your face when you’re trying to look professional. You have two options – Brogue boots for style or Hiking boots for practicality.
If you tend to be out and about for work and you want to look smart, but not ‘work smart’ than there are two items you want to think about adding to your wardrobe. First is the strangely fashionable cable knit jumper. These are as practical as they are retro cool and will make you stand out in a crowd of regular v-necks. Also essential is the double breasted blazer. These have been popping up on loads of catwalks with a slimmed down and shortened design to avoid the normal fattening effect of regular shaped double breasted jackets.
The big day, whether you like it or not, is not far off. You know you’re going to eat, drink and be merry, but do you know what you’re going to wear. Christmas day is all about comfort as you will have a lot of sitting around and indulging to do. This means cool t-shirts and comedy jumpers. Think Flight of the Conchords and you are in the right area. Just don’t go too far with it because a badly judged rude t-shirt could have your gran choking on the sprouts.
When New Year comes for some reason we all want to be outside trudging round from party to party despite predictably shocking weather. That’s why you need to invest in a big comfy duffle coat. They have been popular for quite a while but never really cut it in the style stakes until now. Try a fawn or other pale colour with a patterned jumper or cardigan underneath.
Do you have any other suggestions?
