To be both warm and stylish

In a few short days I’ll be typing these posts from 30,000 feet in the air, wondering if my trusty leather-trimmed Samsonite suitcase is housing anything warm enough to possibly survive the cold snap currently sweeping Europe and the US. Coming from a mild, albeit unpredictable, climate the odds are the answer will be ‘no’. But isn’t that just a great excuse to head out on some shopping missions when we land? If anything the biggest question for me is how to stay both warm and unwaveringly stylish, being that I only even encounter snow and sub-zero temperatures when I travel, never at home.

Theory number 1: pack some fur (real or faux). Classic, stylish, glamorous – and cosy. Theory number 2: accessories are, as I always say, key. When you have a limited amount of packing space a few items can turn into a great many outfits by way of interchangeable accessories.

More ideas for how to pack for the freezing cold weather? I’ll share mine as I do my packing over the coming week – but do feel free to add your own in the comments below.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
