Wrap up warm in our cold snap style

With forecasts of possibly the coldest winter in recent memory, and Jack Frost nipping at our fingers already, it’s wise to invest in some stylish but cosy pieces, so you can wrap up warm while still looking cool.

The secret to the perfect winter outfit is good thermal foundations. Heatgen is M&S’s bestselling thermal underwear so choose a fine layer scoop neck top and leggings, ensuring you don’t add too much bulk.

Then layer with a slim fit denim shirt – one of my personal favourite A/W staples as it’s so versatile. Add a stretch corduroy trouser to add texture and an oversized cable knit cardigan.

Snuggle into this on-trend fleece-lined Parka with faux fur trim and add cashmere accessories like these wrap leg warmers and H&M scarf. I find fingerless gloves more practical and these sheepskin tan pair from Celtic&Co are great value too.

You can’t beat a bobble hat when the temperature plunges, and keep toes snug with these thermo regulating Sorel boots. They’re handily rain and stain repellent, as you just never know what Mother Nature has in store for you!
