Dressing for winter in the UK is no easy feat, though there is something distinctly British about knowing how to put together a great outfit despite all the elements—some of us even enjoy the challenge. Between the stormy gales and a high likelihood of rain, there are myriad factors to consider when it comes to getting dressed each day during the winter. However, those of us who call this place home have spent years perfecting the outfit formulas we know will keep us warm, dry and of course, looking stylish.
When it comes to staying warm and chic celebrities tend to be just as savvy as the rest of us, and many of the UK's leading fashion lights also champion the very same hero pieces we rely upon to survive the season. From double-breasted wool coats that will keep you cosy on your daily walks, to chunky-sole boots that can withstand muddy parks, British celebs know a thing or two about practical winter wares.
