Beat the Beast (from the East!)
As a nation it's fair to say that we're more climatized to wet weather rather than the sub zero temperatures we're experiencing right now in the UK. More than an inch of snow and we go into panic - our public transport system grinds to a halt, our schools close and our roads become treacherous.
If it's business as usual for you today (and you're not blessed with a snow day) here's some of our fashion picks in store right now that will help you stay warm, stylish and most of all beat the notoriously named Beast From The East.
Sorel x Chloe Winter Boots (£335 from FarFetch)
Stylish but functional Sorel have teamed up with French fashion house Chloe to create this updated twist on their iconic snow boot.
