Over the last month or so all thoughts of style and fashion went out the window in favour of wearing as many clothes from my wardrobe as possible in order to stay warm. However I think these miserable winters are set to become a regular occurence for us and so it’s worth trying to figure out how to be stylish while swaddled in layers and thermals!
I think Alice Palmer’s amazing knitwear might be one solution. Alice is a UK based designer who launched her own knitwear label in 2008. She launched her SS2011 collection at London Fashion Fringe and was nominated last year for Fashion Designer of the Year at the Scottish Style Awards. I love the textures and angular shapes she creates and her clothes look practical and edgy, a rare combination. I also love the studded merino wool tights featured in the collection.
