I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you the mild temperatures have disappeared and we’ve now entered car-scraping season. Here are five buys to keep cosy and stylish when the freeze sets in.
I’m not usually one to take style advice from a five year old but my friend’s daughter was rocking a bobble hat last weekend and she looked ace. I did buy a pom-pom donned hat at the start of the autumn but find the sheer weight of the bobble pulls it off my head. Anyone experiencing this? What’s the secret to keeping it in place?
I am very much liking Topshop’s check beanie with a subtle pink detail to add a playful touch to my otherwise grey attire.
I would like to meet the person who developed HEATTECH and shake them by the hand. My previous experience of thermal underwear was vests that were too short – an exposed midriff does not keep you warm, and they were too bulky to lay evenly under clothes. When I went to Iceland about six years ago a friend recommended I try Uniqlo’s vests and I was converted. Apparently the cutting-edge fabric takes body heat and stores it within air pockets deep within the fibres to keep the wearer warm. It really works. I promise.
There’s no denying 30 odd quid is a large amount to fork out on a pair of socks but the White Company cashmere socks are pure luxury. After all they’re cashmere darling. My friend gave me a pair for Christmas several years ago and I adore them. They are warm, soft and snuggly and amazing quality.
It wasn’t until this week I really felt the need to get out my gloves. When we moved out the washing machine on moving day I was tickled pink to find last year’s leather gloves which I was convinced I’d left in a bar somewhere. A few of you commented on my polka dot pair from 2015 so I was pleased to find Topshop have a similar studded pair this year in the sale. As they only had the smaller size in stock when I put this post together, those with larger fingers can get their kicks at Asos with a suede pair with a studded trim.
For those of you favouring a wooly mitten or glove then Accessorize have a great selection.
Obviously we couldn’t do a round-up of cosy attire without including a snuggly jumper. I have to admit I haven’t purchased from La Redoute recently but I’m very taken by their Textured Alpaca Jumper and with 60% off you can get one for less than £25. Bargain.
How are you staying warm this week? Any cosy buys you’d like to share?
