Get Yer Geek On!

Alas, winter will be soon upon us and, as the Great British weather proves annually, wrapping up warm is the only way to survive when the cold weather sets in. That means scarves, gloves, hats and woollen accessory of every other manner.

Thankfully looking warm has never looked so cool thanks to the barrage of celebs wearing winter warmers and the droves of high-end designers proudly dressing their models in every manner of fluffy and padded garment. Le ski, c’est chic- or so it seems. Take Dolce & Gabbanna for example. Their ads this time of year are so fantastically wintery, it is hard not to get excited about the premise of earmuffs and snow boots.

One of my favourite looks at the moment merges geek-chic with winter wonderland- or geek wonderland if you will?! Anyway, it sure is good news for all the girls out there who like to keep toasty when it is cold outside. The best news is- anything goes. That cat shaped hat with ears? Go for it! Those faux-fur leopard print arm-warmers? Wear ‘em with pride! So basically, the geekier the better.

Celebrities championing the look include Katy Perry with here fantastic range of odd animal woolly hats and Zooey Deschanel with her quirky earmuffs.
