Spoiler: Polo necks and oversized, well, anything are all the rage.
buy generic finasteride 5mg online Q:What do you like most about winter fashion?
Q:And the best part about layering?
A: You can definitely eat those five extra mince pies! The following day, you’ll be in a divinely thick polo neck, with a coat, leggings, boots, gloves, and a hat. So no one will ever know about those naughty mince pies.
Q: Are there any pieces you have a harder time styling during this time of year?
A: The most annoying thing is that it’s bitterly cold outside, but as soon as you go into a shop or restaurant, the heat is on so high that you quickly de-layer. If, underneath a fabulously sexy polo neck, you’ve thrown on an old, nobody-should-see t-shirt, then you quickly go from hero to zero!
And now, Charlotte wants to ask you, our reader:
How do you carry your bag, hat, gloves, coat, and jumper, and make it look stylish? I’m still trying to figure it out… any suggestions?
Q: How do you manage to look fab while battling against the brutally cold weather?
A: It’s all about finding a solution to the problem or annoyance.
Bitterly cold? Wear a fabulously oversized teddy bear coat to wrap up in! Rain & frost outside = a bad hair day? Wear a knitted hat with a faux fur ball on top! Like I said, everything has a solution.
A: Animal prints are out in full force. From leopard to zebra to tiger to snake, all these prints exude power and confidence, and I lovethat! Also, sharp, pleated midi skirts? Yes, please! I’ve been a fan of the midi length since brands like Prada and Louis Vuitton featured them on their 2012 “Ready-to-Wear” Catwalks. The trend hasn’t left us yet, thank God.
Pair a pleated midi skirt with trainers and a fluffy jumper (à la Valentino) for a casual day look!
Q: What’s your go-to winter accessory?
A: Knitted polo necks! I’ve invested in quite a few, and I am living for it! Not only do they go with everything–skirts, jeans, trousers, or even over a silk dress–but they’re chic, cozy, and you just want to snuggle into their thick roll necks.It’s undoubtedly a statement piece in my winter wardrobe, and it’s definitely for those very, very cold days. As a testament to the coat’s quality, I’ve had it for 5 years, and it still looks as good as the day I bought it!
A fun fact about this jacket: The fashion Gods were with me on the day I found this in Bicester Village’s Burberry Store. It’s the only shearling jacket they have ever received! Lucky or what?!
Q: Favorite winter outfits?
A: Oh no, do I have to pick just one??
Okay, if I hadto pick:
A big, oversized, knit polo neck, Tight, high-waisted mini skirt (probably animal print), tights, over-the-knee boots, an oversized teddy bear coat, and big sunglasses. I’ve said oversized a lot. I’m a fan–have you noticed?
