Inspiration for January and February

barbour+paulsmith
With Christmas and New Year’s sadly behind us it’s time to hang up our snowflake knits and sparkles and look ahead to January and February. Though still in the midst of winter, there’s very little holiday atmosphere about these months and spring seems a long way off. The weather’s been crazy but not as cold as expected – are we in for heavy snow or just more rain?

This is where the ‘true-Brit’ style comes into its own. Here are a few pieces so practical that they have survived through generations. I love the androgyny of this look – or maybe it’s just I’m drawn to more masculine styles.

Steve McQueen and Norman Jewison
