I’m planning a cruise to Norway to see the Northern Lights at the moment, complete with husky ride, so I’ve been looking for warm winter gear to protect me against the elements while I’m there.
As a huge fan of Scandic style, I’ve completely fallen for Bergans of Norway. My new winter coat is the Bodø Down Lady Coat (£280, available from Tiso), just perfect for wrapping up against the elements – it’s padded without making me look like a Michelin Man, and I love the retro detailing, which is very cool. It’s beautifully warm and waterproof and so far my sister, my niece and my mum have all asked to borrow it. Trust me, this is the perfect coat to get you through any winter, Norwegian or otherwise.
And what better hat to go with it than an Abba hat? Yes, in this baked beanie in denim and white from Snug Bug (£15) I’m completely channeling Agnetha in The Winner Takes It All video. It has a soft lining so my head won’t get itchy and the colour, apparently, matches my eyes. LOVE.
