winter dressing


While you might feel that sunglasses are slightly out of season, there's actually been no better time to don a pair of shades.

There is a certain air of 'notions' about anyone who wears sunnies past September under any other circumstances than driving, but with this winters bright and blustery feel, we think the time has come to shun social norms and embrace a pair of sclera saving shades.

And we're seriously so sick of squinting in the low sun while simultaneously shivering from the cold. Something has got to give.  


Winter can be a bit glum, so make a statement with some sculptured shades.

The marble detail on these makes them a fashion bloggers dream. They'll definitely get the likes on Insta.

If you want to grunge up a slightly stuffy sartorial season of ruffles, embroidery and Victorian collars, opt for some John Lennon-esque subtle shades.

The best thing about these bad boys is, if you have managed to maintain them by summer, they are ideal for the festival season. 

3. Ray-Ban

Designer shades are an investment, and somehow every summer rolls around and we still don't have the funds to make the leap.

If you happen to have the cash to splash in the winter and spring months, why not do your investing now? After all, a well made pair of designer shades will see you into summer and beyond. 

4. & Other Stories

Winter sun requires a little less coverage than the blasting summer sunshine, so opting for a pastel hue over black is totally viable.

Experiment with your colour palette and brighten up a gloomy winter wardrobe with a whisper of pastel pink. 

5. River Island

The perfect hangover shades.

This blacked out, oversized pair will shelter your tired eyes as well as their surrounding dark circles after you've hit the gin and tonics a tad too hard over the festive season. 


When the temperatures drop the winter seems to have well and truly grabbed us by the frigid hands, then all we want are warm and cosy outfits.

Honestly, nothing beats the cosy allure of a chunky hand-knit scarf. Or indeed a blanket-scarf? 

A ridiculously oversized cloud of fluff that is made using bare hands in place of knitting needles seems like it would do the trick. Well, luckily for all of you knitwear lovers out there, the ultimate in winter accessories has been found.

Kiev Ukraine–based Anna Marinenko may not have actually invented the chunky-knit blanket, but her Instagram-worthy creations, made under the name Ohhio, were inspired by the idea of giant wearable creations. 

The designer says in a press release that she found herself with a large amount of gigantically thick wool last year. She had the burning desire to create something, but alas she didn’t have a pair of knitting needles quite large enough to take on the task.

So she started knitting with her bare hands. The results were a gigantic 3-inch-thick stitch that has pushed the concept of oversized knit to the extreme. She says the literally handmade designs, made from fine 100 percent Merino wool, are warm in winter and lightweight enough to keep around in summer.

Her work is available on Etsy, where she offers blankets in a range of sizes colors. She also takes custom orders AND sells a range of chunky-knit pet beds. We are tempted because we know Fido appreciates a good chunky knit when the weather gets chilly. 

She also sells comically gigantic wooden knitting needles and balls of super-thick yarn for people who feel like taking on the mega knit challenge. 

She has launched an already funded Kickstarter campaign to expand the brand. She is currently offering blankets and massive chunky neck scarves.

We will take all of them, please.
