There's no denying that making plans in winter can be tricky. Leaving heated homes to venture out into the cold can make it more tempting to send those “sorry, I've double-booked myself” messages. But careful planning and outfit prep make it easier to attend those dates in your busy diaries. The joys of winter (including hot drinks on repeat and getting excited about a hint of sunshine) are made even better by keeping warm. As long as you're clever when it comes to layering, attending any outdoor event (even if it's just a weekend stroll) will be another joy to add to the list. Luckily, Nasty Gal is a go-to when it comes to outdoorsy outfits. High up on the list are super-warm puffer coats, fleece cover-ups, sweater sets and of course, chunky boots to wear with cosy socks.
It's all about choosing winter staples that, when mixed and matched, create entirely different outfits. Whether it's a quilted coat that'll work just as well on a windy beach walk as it will on a coffee run or a knitted two-piece that can be worn inside accessorized with slippers or outside with lace-up stomper boots, there are so many ways to embrace the winter in style.
