Kate Moss, caught in yesterday’s snow flurry in North London, shows us how to look cool, whilst staying warm, a feat we’ve yet to master. In an all-black outfit, the model braced herself from the cold in an oversized shearling coat, tempered by her signature skinny jeans and black grunge biker boots. A grey and black hat kept those chiseled cheekbones shielded from the snow.
With these freezing conditions set to last, it’s time to take inspiration from the snuggled-up supermodel. Here are our pick of the most fashionable winter warmers.
Creator of the finest fur accessories, Yves Salomon’s rabbit fur ear muffs are not only luxuriously soft and fluffy, they’re also designed to keep your ears toasty and won’t give you hat hair!
Ok, so texting, changing the tunes on your Spotify playlist or even retrieving your Oyster card from your bag may be slightly problematic, but when your fingers are this warm and your manicure remains perfectly intact, you’ll forget all about contacting friends, listening to music and getting to work on time.
Surely the most perfect padded puffa you’ve seen?! Unlike many others, Pyrenex’ sports-luxe cut won’t turn you into the Michelin man, but don’t be fooled by the slim fit because the neoprene coat is filled with insulating soft feathers, keeping you warm without weighing you down. The fox-trimmed hood, fitted waistband and cuffs will keep you snug.
Yes it is pricey, but it will last you a lifetime of bitterly cold winters.
Pyrenex Morphing Coat, £1,055
If you have yet to invest in any of Uniqlo’s clever HeatTech clothing, we suggest you make a detour on your way home this evening. A must-have in these arctic conditions, Uniqlo’s cutting-edge technology textile turns moisture from your own body into heat and boasts air pockets within the clothing fibres to hold warmth close to the skin. No other thermals come close. Plus we love the current quirky collaboration with print designer Orla Kiely.
Uniqlo HeatTech Crew Neck Top, £12.90
Choose boots that sit high on the ankle (no one wants a cold leg) and forego suede for strong black leather (snow stains are a nightmare to remove). Not only are these Shore boots the perfect balance of sturdy and stylish, the block heel gives height without worry of wobbling and the buckle nods to this season’s equastrian trends. What more could you ask for?
