The big freeze has truly arrived in the UK, and experts predict that we’ve still got a week or two of frosty weather ahead of us. It’s easy to forget fashion when you’re buried under chunky knitwear, but no matter how cold it is outside, no-one should be without a touch of glitz! Here are our top tips for sparkling in the snow, regardless of how many layers you’ve piled on!
Brooches are a great option for adding a touch of glamour to a bulky outfit, because they can be pinned in a prominent place, whether it’s on the brim of your woolly hat or the lapel of your thickest winter coat. Bonus points if you can find one in a seasonably appropriate shape – a glittering snowflake would be adorable!
Gloves and hats are two essential outfit components for keeping warm in the chill, but wearing them means that your usual rings or small stud earrings will be completely covered up. Drop earrings are the perfect alternative – they will peek out from your hat or ear warmers and add some much needed glitter to an otherwise gloomy day.
Watches are the ultimate accessory – they’re practical and stylish, and perfect for throwing on with a snow day outfit. Delicate designs might get lots amongst the bulk, so choose a chunky, robust style for this look – and don’t get into any snowball fights unless they’re waterproof!
The saying goes, if you can’t beat them, join them, and that’s exactly what diamonds will help you do in the midst of the ice and snow. Pin on a pair of diamond earrings of let a diamond bracelet peek out from under your sleeves – you’ll shine brighter than any icicle!
