Since my school days I’ve always been one to play around with tights. I was the girl with the ‘pop socks’ one day and knitted tights the next – having a strict uniform it was one of the only ways I could experiment with fashion. So I’ve never underestimated the power of a good thermal and it’s fashion capabilities.
So I teamed up with Falke and headed down to their Bicester Village store to source some fabulous thermals to play around with. Falke is a German brand that specialises in not only thermal technology but style as well. Thermals can still be glamorous if you know where to shop!
They cover all bases from sports to luxe, men, women, children – and at a discounted price you can pick them up from the designer outlet in Bicester!
A lot of people rule out skirts in the winter, but with the right pair of thick woolly tights and some winter boots you can still keep warm. My favourite is matching a cute skirt with tights and thigh high boots!
Look 1 – My favourite! The cropped jean is an ultimate staple in my wardrobe but in the cold months those ankles feel the cold. A perfect way to continue wearing your favourite jeans is by popping a pair of tights or sheer socks underneath! The subtle tint will not only keep you toasty but relieve you from fake tanning or defusing the ankle region – winning!

Look 2 – I took a skirt from my summer wardrobe to show how you can reuse those fashion items you bought in the warmer months throughout the year. By layering with a hat, faux fur coat, high neck knit, boots and of course some Falke woolly black tights it’s perfect to tackle the cold.

Look 3 – I wanted to experiment and try playing around with different colours. Having just come back from the snowy ski slopes in Vermont I was really inspired by the apres ski fashion out there. This cream and brown colour palette scream log cabin chic and I just love the contrast between the cream Falke tights and the faux fur boots.
