Let's face it, winter is the season when warmth trumps everything! Or maybe that's just me? My hands and ears are the first one to go numb especially when I am outdoors during chilly evenings. I still wear nice clothes underneath but I make sure I am cosy inside and that's a priority. Nobody wants to catch a flu at this time of the year! My first winter seasons in the UK was a honeymoon phase. I thought I can get by with winter clothes that look like one but do not feel like one. However, the longer I stay in the country, the more I realised that you have to invest in good winter apparel. I don't have a truckload of winter clothes but I have a handful that I'd happily wear over and over (after washing them of course!).

1. Uniqlo. These two (below) are my most worn inner layers to date. My duvet jacket (as I call it) is from the same brand too. They are on the pricier side but it's all worth it. They recently launched an ultra-warm heat tech range and it lives up to its name (to a certain degree). 2. UGGs. It feels like you are walking in a warm carpet even if you are braving a super cold wintry street, that's all I can say. It's not the nicest to look at but you know what? When it's really chilly, your girl can't be bothered. 3. Marks & Spencer (cashmere range). I wasn't a believer of cashmeres before. Maybe because I can't justify how expensive they are until last year. I got a gift voucher and embracing a minimalist lifestyle, I wanted to buy something that is functional. It took me a while to get used to it - it's not itchy but my skin had an adjustment phase. After a while, I am literally living on my black crew neck cashmere jumper every office day. 4. Ted Baker. Their coats are pretty and cosy. It's not as warm as a puffer jacket but when the temperature is bearable, you can get away with it. I like that you can put up those lovely collars so you can close your coat fully.
