5 Things to wear on a winter beach walk
October 20, 2016
Wrap up warm this winter.
Our favourite time of year to go for walks is just as Winter starts.
There is something so exhilarating about the crisp icy sea air hitting your rosy cheeks and the gales blowing your hair in every direction.
In Cornwall we are blessed to have the beautiful, golden sandy beaches to stroll along all year round – in Winter they truly come alive.
What to wear on a winter walk:
A good strong pair of jeans is the best foundation for any beach walk.
Classic American brand Levi Strauss is world renowned for its authenticity and integrity.
Levi’s skinny, mid rise 711 Blue Lane jeans are a must have. Crafted from quality cotton, that will last years and years, mixed with a small amount of spandex makes these jeans ridiculously easy to just pop on and go. With a good level of stretch, the jeans offer a good level of comfort for those hilly climbs.
No winter would be complete without knitwear.
Our favourite for this season is the Alon Vanille Striped Jumper from French fashion brand Marie Sixtine.
Beautifully made from a wool and mohair mix, that wicks away moisture as well as keeping in the heat, the super feminine stripe pattern is designed so that it always looks stylish. Lilac, pale pink and warm caramel hues are the perfect shades to take you right through to Spring.
A warm winter hat shouldn’t be forgotten.
The Elgon Beanie, from Belgian accessories brand Barts, is a super cute and adds a pop of colour to any beach stroll. Hand knitted with a soft fleece lining a thick, chunky textured of the weave keeps your head protected from the winter winds.
For your feet you’ll need something sturdy and reliable, like the Sk8-Hi trainers from Vans.
At first sight the trendy green colour and moccasin-inspired fringing deter from the more sensible aspects of the shoe.
Padded collars give support and flexibility while the signature waffle rubber soles that comfortable and fuss free.
When heading out on a winter walk it helps to be prepared and rain is always a factor when planning any outing.
Beat the weather with the Frontier Parka from Californian surf brand O’Neill.
Hyper-dry repels water whilst maintaining breath-ability, this season’s coat comes in a shorter length for ease whilst out and about.
Adjustable waist ties, a slim fit and an ergonomically shaped fur hood are just a few of things that make this essential piece stylish as well as functional.
