Stylish weekend warmers

Baby, it’s cold outside. Maybe not yet, but mark our words – this weekend you will be reaching for your winter coat, and more. Weekend warmers are needed!  The temperatures are set to plummet this weekend, so how does your inner fashionista deal with that?

By looking fantastic in even of the coldest of situations, of course. And we’re here to help with how to look good in the cold, in four typical weekend activities.


You’ve got to start sometime, or maybe you’re just looking for a Christmas party outfit? Whatever, your shopping weekend warmers need to be thought through carefully. Those shops can get warm, so make sure you layer up. We suggest leggings, and boots, a top, a cardigan and a coat you can leave open easily, as well as a backpack to leave hands free in all those stores, and a hat and gloves you can pull on and off between shops.

Dressing for the cold weather during the day is all well and good, but how do you glam up in the cold? The simple answer? Be clever! Remember, wherever you’re heading is probably going to be warm, so layering again is key. Short dress and thigh high boots work as winter warmers, as does a maxi dress. Wrap up in a big. maxi length camel coat for weekend warmers warmth and extra style points. Add a chic fur stole and hat, and perhaps some evening length gloves. And why not go the whole weekend warmers style with a fake fur handbag!? Oh, and add some shapewear for an extra layer of warmth too!

Maybe it’s dinner at friends or a meal out this weekend? If you’re in someone else’s house, you never know how warm or not it’s going to be. So layer up! A skirt or trousers – leather is a great temperature regulating fabric – with a cute top and then an evening sweater layered on top is great for this occasion. Add cute, winter themed accessories too!
