Our Fabulous Five: Cosy vintage inspired buys for a chilly January

Without stating the obvious, January is cold – cold, wet and dark.  OK, its not as cold as its been in past years but this month is a month of wanting to feel warm, cosy and comfy…and hoping it doesn’t snow! Todays vintage blog embraces this fact with 5 gorgeous buys to wrap up warm with, all available online now…

1.  Winter means knitwear – the more layers the better.  Buy items that will see you year in, year out – we love this 80’s angora slouchy jumper with leather detailing from Rokit.  Perfect with skinny jeans or leather trousers.

2.  A great outerwear option is a poncho or cape – this can be thrown over a coat for extra warmth or worn on its own if you’re, say, in the car or in and out of the shops.   We love this cream version with a oversized bow from Beyond Retro – just too cute 🙂

3.  We all know that much of our body heat is lost through our heads so lets use that as an excuse to buy a lovely winter hat!  Sparkle always cheers up dull days and this vintage sequin beret is adorable.

4.  For a quick fix warm up a hot water bottle/cover is a great idea.  Get yourself comfy, snuggle under a throw and cuddle up to this gorgeous winter warmer.  Rubber perishes so don’t go actual vintage with this one…

5.  Cosy socks are a must in chilly weather.  Over the knee socks during the day (great with knee length boots) and soft bed socks at night are a must and it doesn’t get much better than a pair of cashmere bed socks – pure sleepy luxury…
