As Sydney braces against a cold snap the likes of which we have not seen in years, many of us are wondering how the heck we are going to keep frostbite at bay this week. If today was any indication I would prefer to stay in bed or at the very least indoors with the heating cranked, but while that might be acceptable for a lazy Sunday, many of us don’t have the luxury of hibernating mid week and have to face the elements in order to get paid. You probably don’t have the option of rocking snow gear in the office either, which makes staying warm trickier. One of the only benefits of winter in Australia is that it is summer in the good ole USA so many an online bargain can be snapped up as they run out the winter stock. I’ve hunted down some great winter warmers to help you cope. Read on for all the details …
The secret to keeping warm without looking like the Michelin man is to start with light but warm base layers. These don’t need to be pretty, it’s all about function and no one is going to see them anyway. Make sure they fit really well to ensure they don’t hamper the look of what you layer on top.
Pants are the only way to go when chilly winds bite. Try these winter weight options. If you really must wear a dress or skirt try these fleecy leggings underneath.
Nothing says winter like a chunky knit. A great way to add some colour to a normally neutral winter palette.
While it would be great to be able to wear Ugg’s all week they are not really office approps so try these instead.
You know I love a coat. When it’s really cold, the longer the better to keep legs a little warmer. If you are just going to wear it to and from work almost anything goes but if you want to stay a little more stylish while keeping icy winds at bay check these out …
A great pair of ski socks under dress boots can make all the difference and those extra finishing touches are very welcome when the mercury really drops …
Stay warm peeps!
