If there’s one Christmas carol that makes me want to head back to England to enjoy Christmas it has to be White Christmas and, low and behold, that’s precisely what fashionisers in the UK and many parts of the Continent and the US have to look forwards to. That presents a conundrum: how to dress to not only keep warm but to also herald in the new year by dabbling in 2010 fashion trends. One street styler, Ashlyn, has come up with her solution: a knit mini dress paired with thigh high boots.
Dressing for such weather is, sadly, a conundrum that those of us in Fashionising.com’s Melbourne bureaux won’t be facing anytime this Christmas. Two days out from the big day we’re looking to the sand and surf to cool off during a 37 degrees Celsius / 99 degrees Fahrenheit day.
Back in London Ashlyn, spotted by street style photographer Wayne Tippets, kept warm by pairing her Jane Norman jumper dress (a chunky knit would be a suitable alternative) with thigh boots from New Look and a scarf from H&M.
