Wrap up warm

I’ve been asked by a reader, and lovely friend of mine, to address what she’s going to do about the Baltic temperatures that have suddenly descended. Appaz, her house is mega chilly, so she’s after fashionable gear that she can wear around the house – but that won’t make her feel like a yeti.

I’m all for a stylish, chunky knit that can be paired with jeans, a maxi skirt or leggings (and tights, if Jack Frost is seriously messing with your vital signs) and will hide a plethora of top layers that absolutely must include an M&S vest – check the sexy-enough-to-get-away-with it lace panelled thermal vest, and the heat generating long-sleeved thermal top.

Stick on the thermal, add a long-sleeved jersey and then go for one of these gorgeous chunks of woolly delight…
