Winter style doesn’t have to be boring! Sub zero temperatures mean you can experiment with lots of knitted accessories, layering and toasty cocoon coats and throws.
On a recent trip to the opening of the Christmas markets in Berlin, Rebel and I wrapped up warmly in our favourite winter staples to combat the cold.
Rebel winter style:
“Never without my converse chucks” is Rebel’s motto in winter too. Pop a lambskin insole into your Converse and you’re good to go in the colder season. Complete the look with laid back, perennial French basics such as the beret and the nautical pea coat. A red checkered scarf provides a pop of colour in the bleaker season.
Romantique winter style:
After moving from London to Berlin a few months ago, I decided I need an arctic parka to keep me warm in Berlin’s notoriously cold winter. I’ve been pampered by the ever so grey and wet but mild marine climate in the UK. After all, there’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing! After plenty of research I invested in a classic green down parka with an over-sized, straight cut. It goes with virtually everything from my beloved round collar dresses to denim or skirts. I can even walk 4 km to work in this baby in -4 degrees and not feel the cold.
