The Fight Is Real



It’s time to get serious when it comes to beating the cold, because no matter how hard you try, hibernation is not an option.

Christmas shopping, obligatory iceskating outings, Sunday pub sessions and mulled wine-fuelled Secret Santa swapping are all fun and games, but without the right kit, just getting there is enough to make me want to turn round and go straight back home to the warm glow of my electric blanket.

Investing in a proper parka kind of changed my life last winter and made running errands on frosty mornings feel slightly less like torture. So this time round, I’m more prepared when it comes to being prepared. Thick tights, heavy treads (albeit by Balenciaga) and some essential balms and creams to try and help winter skin look a little more human are all part of my ‘survive till spring’ kit. Not forgetting the star of the show of course; a duvet-like hooded parka that makes the morning commute feel more like a lie-in. Result.
