WINTER WOOLLIES: Turn up the style in tartan

on in Fashion

Because looking good and keeping warm doesn’t have to cost the Earth…

Cheap Tartan Scarves

OK it may be a new year but it’s still bloomin’ freezing. And instead of cranking up your heating and putting the strain on your pocket (and the planet) why not chuck on cosy winter woollies instead?

Jana B – our Lookbooker of the week – showed us how to up the stakes this winter in two-tone winter boots, tartan scarves and woolly hats (pictured above). We love her style, so we’ve found some vintage and eco alternatives so you can get her look…

Winter Fashion Look

Keep your noggin’ cosy in this FAIR+true Cable Knitted Bobble Hat from Fashion Conscience (above left) This is a great bold unisex knitted bobble hat in a fun and stylish snowflake design. It was also hand knitted by a Fair Trade group in Nepal so you know you’re doing your bit for the planet too!

Jump on board with the latest tartan trend now with this Vintage Gorgeous Tartan Scarf from ASOS Marketplace (above centre). Tartan is so on trend this winter, and for only a tenner, this scarf is an absolute steal. It’s a vintage item from the 90′s but is in great condition.

Invest in a decent pair of boots this winter by opting for these Sary Black Faux Leather boots from Beyond Skin (above right). These black knee high boots have faux leather front panels which look smart and classic (but also don’t hurt the planet). They also have padded insoles and only a 4cm heel so they’re easy to wear all day.

And if you can’t afford to buy anything new, why not just have a go at customising one of your old jumpers so you can toss on a jumper at home to keep cosy rather that cranking up your heating…

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/
Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
