As we find ourselves in another lockdown here in the UK it seems that our new favourite past time is yet again walking, as let's face it, it's pretty much one of the only things we can do!
Although this time round it's not quite as much fun as it was back in the spring when the temperatures are almost freezing and you're dodging the rain/wind/snow!
Something I often get asked is how to still stay stylish in the cold.
One of my top tips is to invest in some good thermal base layers that can go under your clothes. I love Uniqlo's heat tech range as they are warm but not too bulky. I also swear by Marks and Spencer's thermal fleece lined tights to go under dresses and skirts, they also do great thermal leggings that I either put on over the tights on really cold days or wear under midi's in the autumn when I'm still clinging onto the bare leg look.
If you are wondering what on earth to wear on your walks and still want to look stylish I've put together a few looks to give you some inspiration to see you through the next couple of months. Outdoor clothing doesn't have to be just practical it can be practical and stylish too.

Hiking boots are practical, stylish and currently on trend. Make sure you invest in good quality pair that are both waterproof and keep your feet warm. They look equally good teamed with dresses and midi skirts come spring so they are not a one season wonder.
Adding pops of colour will always add interest to an outfit. Pops of print work equally well and by clashing different prints with a common colour scheme elevates the look even more.
Teddy coats are the ultimate cosy coat and easy to dress up or down. Keep your silhouette streamlined so that you don't add extra bulk as Teddy coats can be quite chunky. The pops of red again add a little bit of interest and elevate this neutral look.
Layering coats with jackets is a great way to keep warm and also to add a little edge to your look. It works well with denim jackets, lighter shackets and also a leather biker works a treat. Pull the collars and lapels out from under the overcoat to make sure it can be seen.
Red and black is such a powerful combination, red the colour of energy and black representing power. It's striking, and red will always turn heads. Add some gold touches too to finish the look. And if you don't need the wellies you can always swap them for a different pair of boots.
These chelsea boot style wellies are a great alternative to the normal knee highs. Wear them now with tracksuit bottoms and jeans or come festival time in the summer (fingers crossed) they will look great with shorts or dresses.
