One of the nicer benefits of the winter season is that sometimes the weather provides the perfect alibi for not leaving the house. Wrapping up cosily and staying in, out of the cold without guilt, is the silver lining to winter’s clouds, and if you pick the right pieces you can lounge in style. Even if circumstances force you out into the cold, well-chosen clothing can keep you feeling comforted and content until you’re able to get back into the warm again.
Let’s take a look at some of the clothing features that can make winter a pleasure.
Chinti & Parker
Masters of high end comfort, Chinti & Parker offer directional sweaters in cashmere so you can pick a fashion classic that’s not only at the forefront of the current trends, but also deliciously soft on your skin, and it keeps you warm. Cashmere is a byword for luxury and comfort, so you can be sure any piece cut in good quality cashmere is not just a worthy investment, but also stylish into the bargain.
For some additional cosiness this winter you could check out their Moomin Shop, for a few choice pieces that have been created using Tove Jansson’s timeless iconic characters and designs. The Moomins are a beloved memory from many people’s childhoods, and incorporating them into your winter wardrobe is a wonderful way to spread a bit nostalgic happiness in this cold and grim season.
One of the main trends of the Autumn catwalk shows was a definitive return to 70s fashions: corduroy is back, in shades ranging from warm reds, camels and chocolate browns to ice blues and saturated navies and blacks. Also revived are the classic chunky collars and pronounced lapels, offering a more casual and relaxed option that works well for chilly winters. Investing in a characterful corduroy jacket doesn’t just make you look great and ensure you’re rocking winter 2017. It’s also warm, and those distinctive collars and lapels give you more options for buttoning up against the cold.
The 70s student-chic look is a great one for the fashion-conscious comfort seeker this winter. The pieces that started the trend by Prada and Marc Jacobs might be high maintenance, and belong more on the catwalk but they’re setting an agenda that cascades down through every level of fashion from boutique online labels to the high street. If you want some low maintenance, comfortable fashion, Top Shop and Zara are providing for the recent corduroy craze, allowing you to put together the outfit you really need this winter.
