I have a mild obsession with jackets. Coats I can take or leave (apart from my new French Connection beauty, but I’ve worn that far too often for it to still be interesting) but jackets – aaah, jackets. Nothing finishes off an outfit like a natty blazer or tailored gilet.
If you’re currently experiencing the full force of British wintertime, however, you’ll know it’s far too cold for anything less than a fur-lined parka, hat-and-scarf combo and thermal underwear. It’s freezing. Despite knowing this, I decided today would be an excellent day to wear my Zara faux fur and wool gilet… which is sleeveless. Look:
Of course, I was cold. Then I thought it’d be a good idea to show off my jumper, so removed the already-inefficient gilet and got even colder…
And when I put it back on, the damage was already done.
I’m all for making sacrifices in the name of style – these boots, although beautiful, aren’t exactly slippers – but sometimes it’s better to admit defeat and wrap up in something that resembles a sleeping bag. And maybe some Uggs. Come on – I know you want to!
What do you wear to ward of the winter weather?
