The Big Freeze
OMG! Could it be any colder? Seriously, Christmas is less than a month away and we’re very excited but c’mon this weather is just too much to cope with! The Big Freeze is playing havoc with our hair (the wind swept look wasn’t our intention) our make-up (completely blown off before we’ve even sat down at our desk) and we don’t know about you but we’ve started to dress for warmth over style (god forbid!) something has to be done! And staying at home in our pj’s isn’t an option – sadly.
According to the morning weather girl, the big freeze is going to continue for another two weeks! Two more weeks? We need a FLY53 guide to dressing in these arctic conditions, and fast.
FLY53′s guide to dressing during the Big Freeze
First of all it’s all about the basics, wear leggings or super thick tights, two pairs if need be! A pair of clumpy boots (must be flat, don’t wear heels you’ll look ridiculous) if you haven’t got grips on your soles DIY them yourself by scoring them with the tip of a sharp knife (it works believe us). Don’t forget your thick wool socks. Next up we strongly believe the NEW FLY53 Squadron Dress, is the perfect dress for the chilly temperatures. Not only does it have long sleeves, there’s a hood as well.
Next up inject a little bit of colour to your black ensemble with the FLY53 Nomad Jacket, the blue check and diagonal zip will ensure you’re wearing something different from everyone else. We don’t care how cold it is, wear it open so as not to hide the dress – that’s an order! Finish off with a duffel coat, FLY53 Flossieda Hat and a chunky FLY53 Candy Cable knit scarf, oh and don’t forget your gloves – FLY53′s beachy fingerless gloves should do the trick!
Winter dressing requires a tinge of practicality but thanks to FLY53, you can look both warm and stylish in the chill. Layer up the accessories, experiment with textures and add a touch of FLY53 to your winter wardrobe.
FLY53 favourite Ashleigh Ashley recently shot her latest music video in Hoxton. We can’t wait to see the finished product, however it won’t be available to everyone until the end of the month. So, for now we’ll have to make do with some behind the scenes pics of Ashleigh looking great in her FLY53 gear.

The Temp Has Nosedived…Time To Think About Wrapping Up!
So it seems official, the Indian Summer ‘aint comin….as usual, the Weathermen got it wrong (not FLY53 weatherman Dallas Raines however!)…the Winter Cold has started to arrive…instead of wallowing in post-summer blues, why not think about how to still at least look good during the cold season!

This is just a tiny selection of our AW10 Jacket/Coat collection, from Military inspired, to Casual, FLY53 as usual have all bases covered…and if there’s one thing we do well, its this department. Make sure you don’t feel Winter’s bite this year and still look good with the help of FLY53
So You Got The Ticket…Now What?
Festivals are a tricky old game. Take too much and you will resemble a commando struggling to lug your giant pack around. Take too little and risk both stinking and freezing!
With this in mind…FLY53 have put together an essential checklist of items that you need not forget…alcohol/drugs are your own essentials…
So theres the obvious essentials list:
- Tent…..Just in case you don’t manage to mack yourself into a chicks tent
- Change Of Clothes…..rain+mud+sweat= bad times
- Contraceptives.….stranger things have happened…be prepared scout!
- Torch…..for those that don’t have nightvision
- Tunes…..the festival music shut’s down at some point leaving you with the eerie silence…sort it out!
- Deodrant…..a shower in a can
- Toilet Paper…..you think toilets with that stench are goin to have paper?
Now thats the basics covered…what about havin some style? FLY53 are famous for our festival wear. You can never have enough t-shirts when living in a tent, and a lightweight shower proof jacket is a vital festival companion…we do both of these….and do them well!
Checkout the ‘FLY53 Festival style guide’ and get over to the ‘Online Store‘ to shop the key looks to make sure your lookin’ your best this Summer Season of Music.
