I really do love my Woolrich Parka coat - practical and oh SO warm but during the week it just isn't going to work... for work. Step in 'My secret ways to stay warm but still chic with smart and subtle layers' catchy right?
1. My absolute favourite is my ultra lightweight puffa vest by Canada Goose in black which literally works under every coat (or your favourite leather jacket - see above!) but also adds a touch of perfectly acceptable Ath-Leisure - I also like it in red for such moments.
2. Another winter staple of mine is Uniqlo's HEAT TECH line. I love the opaque tights and also the HEAT TECH camisole that slips under the thinest of turtlenecks and keeps me beyond snug. Uniqlo also does a fantastic kids line - Honor (my 6 year old) refuses to wear anything but their HEAT TECH leggings as they are also super comfortable (currently on sale for $5.90!).
4. Over the knee leather boots that slip comfortably over your skinny pants or under a wool maxi dress (another great warm but chic piece). Stuart Weitzman is really the king when it comes to boots - the Lowland is my favourite.
