There’s a reason wild mammals survive in winter — their thick, durable pelts insulate them against freezing conditions. Follow their lead and bring lashings of pure wool and cashmere plus hardy suede and leather into your wardrobe.
TIP : A good tank top in thick, soft cashmere layered in with your regular wardrobe staples will act as a barrier to the elements but allow for slightly warmer conditions.
