How to Stay Stylish When It's Arctic, According to Your Fave Bloggers

The weather has certainly taken a nosedive across the UK, with temperatures dropping to icy lows. It can be difficult to show personality or styling flair in sub-zero temperatures, leaning on old favourite bulky jumpers, scarves and beanie hats. As always, the super-blogger set provides plenty of outfit ideas so you can look on point without having to endure frozen toes. 

Chiara Ferragni counters cold weather with bright vibrant colours and jazzy pieces, meanwhile, Margaret Zhang plays with unexpected and fashion-forward layering. Of course, New Yorker Leandra Medine and Scandi blogger Tine Andrea are used to bitter winters, so they are experts in surviving those arctic days in style.

Scroll through the gallery below to see 14 amazing—but practical—sub-zero outfit ideas.

Style Notes: It can be tricky to look polished on a snow day, but instead of wearing a casual puffer, Blair Eadie doubled up on tailored coats instead, tucking her Hunter boots into slim-fitting leather-look trousers. The Gucci bag doesn't hurt either.

Style Notes: For those days when even your most loved scarf feels too thin, follow Leandra's lead, and tie your chunkiest jumper around your neck like a scarf.

Style Notes: Just because it's freezing outside doesn't mean you have to look scruffy. If you want a smart sub-zero outfit, then layer a cosy oversize furry coat over a suit like Aimee Song did.
