Winter brings many unfashionable monstrosities: pasty scaly skin – thanks to lack of sun and body lotion, coughs and sneezes, cold-sores, thermal underwear and Ugg boots.
And this year, I fear we’ll also see a shower of duvet coats – thanks to a worrying trend of celebs stepping out in them in the past couple of weeks.
I get it. It’s cold in New York. It’s even forking freezing in the South of Fraaance right now.
But one thing that’s a bad idea is pulling on one of these padded jackets a la Scarlett Johansson and Sarah Jessica Parker.
Even Alexa Chung would look chunky in one.
I hate the cold, but to avoid looking like the Michelin man, I put on as many thin layers as humanely possible if I’m forced to brave the elements.
And I try to stay inside - a lot.
It could be worse though I suppose- so long as Madge’s recent gorilla hat doesn’t catch on, I’ll try not to complain too much.
