Vogue are sticking to their brave advice to go for the bare leg New York look this winter, despite the sub zero temperatures…
Firstly think fur. Its luxurious warmth will keep you cosy until spring. It came in every guise this season, so pick from the fur-trimmed elegance of Alberta Ferretti’s coats through the understated gilets at Sportmax to Karl Largerfeld’s floor length coats at Chanel. Head to Topshop for furry accessories in the shape of hats, snoods, gloves and ear muffs.
Secondly bridge the gap between your hemline and your footwear. Look to D&G for knee-high furry boots or to Prada for knee-length woollen socks. If you really don’t think you can, fake it with some cut out tights, the best are available at Wolford or from Henry Holland’s range at Pretty Polly. If you do decide to brave it, then make sure your legs are looking their polished best. Don’t overdo it on the fake tan, use St. Tropez Everyday Perfect Legs to get just a gentle glow.
Most importantly, take tips from the seasoned experts in New York and in the North, wear this look with confidence and a smile, you’re about to be the centre of attention.
