Brrr! It’s getting chilly outside. Luckily I’ve discovered some under-cover (literally) secrets.
Firstly, I’ve come across JML’s Magic Layer, a lovely thin vest that is the antidote to bulky winter wardrobes and the ultimate in lightweight thermal wear. I can’t bear to be too overheated or ‘over-done’ in winter and what I love about The Magic Layer is that it is lovely and thin yet gives thermal qualities from its breathable fibres.
The thermal vest remains completely invisible under your clothes and, while it keeps you warm, it doesn’t overheat you like many other thermals. It’s also plain and simple so works fine if part of the sleeves or neckline are on show when layering up.
It is also made from TACTEL, which means it is soft and light and stretches to fit the body. It fits the warmth of a woolly jumper into just 1mm of fabric, so you you won’t have the need for chunky knits. A true winter warmer.
Available from Boots and Debenhams.
While we’re on the subject of layering, another must-have in my base-wear are the Shape Pants Secret, £49.90, by ITEM M6 – an innovative brand I have blogged about before. Ideal for creating a slender and smooth silhouette, the seamless shape wear are wearable and truly comfortable.
Their unique design features medically tested compression zones that shape the tummy, thighs and hips to create slender contours. Unlike many other shape wear brands, they can be machine washed and dried making them ideal for everyday wear. They are also extremely comfortable (again unlike many shape wear brands which feel unbearably restrictive). A must for any wardrobe!
