I have lamented this before – I am constantly cold in the winter months! I cannot seem to obtain the ideal body temperature for general joy and happiness in London’s fluctuating January temperatures. I find that I am never dressed just right – some days, I am as snug as a bug till I get into the underground (Subway or metro to many) and then I am hot as a pot in my big puffer coat. Other days, I set off in a light coat and by the time I arrive at my destination, I am waddling like a frozen penguin. I have heard that layering is the holy grail to coping with temperamental weather, so these days I have been making an extra effort to layer my way through the capital. Yesterday, I tried a long sleeve top, leather jacket and sleeveless blanket coat combination to meet a friend for breakfast. Isha’s Verdict: 8 out of 10 for sustained warmth indoors and outdoors. I would love to hear about your experiences with layering that works. As always, thanks for reading!
