To my utter suprise, it has actually snowed on the south coast of England! And seeing as we are off school, it is a perfect time to resurrect my blog! Apologies for the lack of posts, my workload increased considerably over the past month.
Anyway, back on topic, I have decided to do a feature on what to wear in the snow, and what definitely NOT to wear, as I have now discovered.
Hope you like it.
NOT TO WEAR
Thermals - Cold is not in the slightest bit fashionable, especially chattering teeth
Snood - Easier and cuter than scarves, no loose ends
Faux Fur hat with ear flaps - Warm head equals slight natural blush, and covered hair
Big knit Jumper - No hood and much thicker, very useful in the snow
Salopettes - Warm, waterproof, and when sized correctly can look like normal legging pants
Snow boots - Essential and very cute by lacoste. No slips on the ice
(All from topshop apart from the Salopettes and Snow boots - ASOS)
The snow boots and knitted jumper are my favourite, because they are both essential, and asthetically pleasing. Jumper is now on my christmas list!
NOT TO WEAR list:
Hoodies - of any kind, from experience, they stretch, the cords freeze and are not as warm as knitted jumpers
Jeans - Get soaked, and stay that way, enough said! ( although this particular design is really nice)
Non waterproof gloves - Bad idea. Cold hands equals no fun
Wellies - No grip, at all. A friend of mine spent around 60% of the day sliding and getting up again as a result of poor footwear choice!
(All from topshop.com, apart from the Wellies - ASOS)
Although the jeans have a star pattern, the gloves have cute bows, and the Wellies are patent, they are totally impractical, and should be saved for a rainy day instead!
