If we are over 50 or over 60, we are ‘Generation Sensible’.
Okay, we know we are officially the Boomer Generation or whatever, but we are, let’s face it, ‘Gen Sensible’ – we don’t go to a party in a strappy frock and no coat. Oh no, not us. We have no intention of getting hypothermia on the way to Christmas drinks or a festive party.
But we also want to look ‘wow’ and effortlessly glamorous. So we want gorgeous, glamorous cover ups that will keep us warm and ensure we look ‘wow’ for the festive season and for any weddings or events we may be attending this winter. You can find fabulous frocks WITH sleeves here but if you are wearing a dress that doesn’t have sleeves, a pashmina or wrap could be your kinda cover up.
JACKETS & COATS
A faux fur coat or jacket perfectly combines practicality with glamour. And it offers versatility, as a faux fur coat or jacket can be worn for work or weekends, as well as for parties and occasions. Here are a few of our favourites…
The Trophy Jacket is another perfect party cover up, especially when combined with a faux fur scarf or stole for an extra dash of warmth and glam. It could be a simple blazer in velvet or another luxe fabric, or it could be a jacket with lavish embellishment such as sequins, crystals or embroidery. Here are our picks…
PASHMINAS & SHAWLS
As well as pashminas in stunning shades, the trend for embellishment means that there are pashminas with stunning embellishment, as well as shawls and stoles in velvet, chiffon and other luxe fabrics. If you plan to wear your pashmina or stole throughout a party, here’s how to free your hands for holding a glass: tie it in a big soft knot at the front. Or, a clever trick if you want to keep the front of your outfit on show, drape the shawl around your shoulders, pass the ends under your arms and ask someone to tie the ends loosely in a soft knot at the back, creating ‘sleeves’ as well as freeing your hands!
FAUX FUR SCARVES
…And not forgetting our fave furry scarves
Do you like to try and cover your arms? If so, which is your favourite way to – a coat, jacket or scarf?
