Working from home in a period property can be a bit chilly at times. I’m loathe to put the heating on just for me, so I tend to just wrap up and try to make it through to mid afternoon. I tend to manage it on all, but the coldest of days.
The way I manage to avoid resorting to the heating is to layer up. Layering can just make you look like a yeti, unless you choose your pieces carefully. The last thing you want to do is dash down to answer the door looking a complete sight. Cosy and warm doesn’t have to mean dowdy or unattractive. I’ve been on the look out for some nice layering options to keep me toasty warm this winter.
Keeping those extremities nice and warm is key, so some cosy socks are key. I like these Fat Face at John Lewis ones as they look good as well as being very soft. It’s worth thinking about a scarf too to keep your neck warm and it can lift your outfit too if you choose a complimentary one.
I like simple scoop neck tops for layering as they tend to go with almost any neckline and they are flattering too. This Fortuna Top has some lovely detailing, so you could wear this piece on its own on warmer days. With its dark grape colour, it’s a good shade for me to wear and it goes well with a number of other tops and cardigans in my existing wardrobe.
For my top layer I often opt for a nice chunky cardigan, but it’s nice to have one that’s fairly closely fitted to get the maximum warmth potential. I like this Kelsey Cardigan, also from Fat Face, with its attractive cable pattern and button up the front fastening. It’s a cotton/acrylic mix which is perfect for me as I’m not good with scratchy wools. As it’s cream it will go nicely with just about any top, so it’s really versatile too.
