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.
Don’t get us wrong, we love going out, honestly we do, but with the clocks going back this weekend and the temperature dropping below zero we’re finding the comfort of our sofa VERY appealing. So with this in mind you can imagine the excitement at FLY53 HQ when we heard all about VOGUE.COM’s Fashion Night In!
Following the success of Fashion’s Night Out celebration, VOGUE is launching an online version of the night for e-tailers such as ourselves. The basic principal is the same as FNO, however rather than encouraging shoppers to hit the streets and shop til they drop, FNI is meant to be like the biggest and most stylish slumber party ever.
VOGUE.COM’s FNI is the perfect reason to sit back, put the kettle on and treat your self to some amazing fashion offers, all in aid of the charity KidCo! Of course FLY53 are getting involved!
On Monday 1st November from 5pm we’ll be launching not one but TWO of our brand new party dresses to coincide with FNI. Not only that, if you spend £80 or more on FLY53 womenswear you’ll get a goodie bag bursting with FLY53 goodies worth up to £50.
We all know staying in is the new going out so mark the 1st November in your diary and log on to FLY53Store.com to check out our exclusive party dresses.
We hope you’re all as excited as we are!
