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.
Earlier today at FLY53 HQ we heard the first forecast for snow is THIS WEEKEND! This excited us for two reasons; the first reason is because it means a good old-fashioned snowball fight at lunchtime! And the second reason is that we get to bring out our exciting Knitwear range to keep those winter chills at bay.
With our most diverse Knitwear range to date currently available on the FLY53 store, there seems no better time to take a look at some of our favourites and tell you why we believe they’re rapidly going to become some of our top sellers this season!
Firstly, take a look at our Dictator Knit:
This military inspired heritage knit is an absolute blast from the past. The short biker style collar is just the right length to let you wrap yourself up with that all important scarf, whilst the heavily marled pattern and old school leather football buttons combine to keep you looking cool whilst feeling warm this winter.
Another FLY53 favourite is the Monkey 23 Knit:
It’s easy to see why our Monkey 23 Knit is going to be a must have this winter. This knitted cardigan is perfect for wearing on top of layers whilst out and about. Not to mention, with big, bold, vibrant colours and the signature FLY53 lightning bolt pattern, it’s bang on trend this season. With the added benefits of its shawl collar hood and slouchy, oversized fit, it ticks all the boxes for the perfect winter festival look.
Check out our Voodoo Knit as a great under-layer:
Inspired by military under layers, the Voodoo Knit is an ideal choice for keeping the chilly breeze out under a warm jacket. The unusual neckline ensures FLY53’s unique design style is represented strongly on this knitted sweat, assuring that this piece will help you stand out from the crowd all season! The Voodoo Knit proves ideal for every winter need, whether you’re sat in the pub or rocking out on stage! (this is a particular favourite with the Friends of FLY53!)
