Thinking of visiting Winter Wonderland in London? As a veteran and big lover of the Christmas fun fairs I thought I would pass some useful tips on what to wear when wandering around Winter Wonderland.
It’s mid December, so trust me when I say you need layers of warm clothing – play with proportions, like I did and wear a wool coat over a thick dress. Pair with tights, a snuggly fur headband (mine is from Alberre Odette), sweet-but-sensible boots like the ones from Moda in Pelle and gloves to up your comfort. If you are looking for something practical to keep out the winter chill (and the guaranteed English drizzle), a military style coat is probably the best way to beat back the cold weather whilst maintaining a stylish look.
This double-breasted coat from Gloverall provides extra warmth when you need it, thanks to its luxurious Melton wool blend. Remember, investment is often key to finding your signature coat.
Opt for a cross-body or backpack for hands-free (and totally cool) shopping. I love this boxy backpack from Paul’s Boutique that is roomy enough to carry all my daily essentials whilst also looking chic and festive thanks to its utterly beautiful emerald green shade.
