What to wear : Awful weather - runway style
I find it hard to find what to wear in the very cold weather. For a long time, we had mild winters in France with scarcely snow and temperatures barely falling under the 0° celsius. The past winter was quite a shock and as I'm writing the snow is falling heavily and piling on sidewalks.
For the moment I've been relying on slim / boot cut trousers and wedge boots for the bottom and wool coats or parka on top.A bit like what Burberry 's proposing for the pre-Fall 2011.
But it's getting boring quite quickly so I've been looking for some alternatives.
As much as I like designers collections, I don't see myself in 10 cm boots (not that in all honesty I usually do for that matter...) on the sliding sidewalks and I don't have a chauffeur car to take me to the office sadly...
Designers are slowly adapting to the desires of consumers and adjusting their collections to the necessities of Winter but it's still rare to see looks really appropriate for cold months.
I discovered Tory Burch's collection for FW 2010 through a Mytheresa's newsletter. I only knew that designer through her accessories that I found a bit too much. Likewise, her collection is a bit over the top at times but some silhouettes are styled in a fun and practical way, easy to replicate.
The FNO Vogue show Week-end wrap up was a discovery. Amazing styling very Rag and Bone, well lots of items from the brand were used for that segment. I wish I could be half as cool bundled-up in mix and match outfits. Nonetheless, I'm very inspired by these looks.
As for Napapijiri, the style is more sporty with slim cargos, tough boots and big outerwear which is cute and perfect for casual Sundays.
