How To Stay Stylish When It's Cold Outside

The cold weather can really put a spanner in the works for us fashionistas; we want to stay warm but also look stylish, we want to be cosy and practical but without looking outdated and boring.  However, it doesn't always have to be this difficult with these top tips.

Buy yourself a cool puffer jacket

Your coat or jacket is going to be an integral part of your outfit in making you look more stylish as this is probably the only thing people will see (or at least the first thing they see) so make it count.  There are loads of trendy jackets out there that are still very warm just like the puffer coat.  You can go for a chic long black one which will go with everything and feel like you're wearing a sleeping bag or you can go for a colourful patterned one to really make a statement.

Invest in some stylish but practical boots

Boots are probably the warmest type of footwear and there are some really stylish snow boots and walking boots on the market right now.  I particularly like ones with some colourful laces for just a little pop with a plain outfit.  Or you could go for some sleek black wellie boots, these are perfect for the rain and keeping your legs even warmer.

Double up

I'll let you into a little secret, when the weather is super icy and cold I generally will wear two pairs of tights or a pair of leggings under my jeans.  No-one will know but you'll still look super stylish whilst keeping warm.  You can also add layers onto your top half like a vest under a jumper or a roll neck under a cardigan always works well.

Accessorise to the max

And finally the must haves in cold weather; the hat, scarf and gloves combo.  This is a fail safe way of keeping warm and stylish.  You can go super cool with a beanie, chic and stylish with a designer scarf and cute with some fluffy mittens.  Whatever your style there will be something for you so never leave home in the cold weather without these staple accessories.

How do you like to stay stylish in the cold weather?

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
