Mode Hiver Grand Froid

© Des Petits Hauts

Between the outside temperature that feels like -10°, and devices blowing hot air full blast on heated terraces… Without giving you a weather report, it’s become really tough figuring out how to dress and it makes you feel like giving it all up – in terms of style. Yet, if you think about it, Winter looks have a much higher fashion potential than Summer with more layers, shapes, materials than in the balmy weather.

So to wake up the glamour Parisienne hibernating inside you, it’s the moment to invest or place your order to slip under the Xmas tree: warm coats, XXL scarves, snuggly bonnets, furry boots... Our selection of the new trendy must-have pieces that are going to make you enjoy the cold weather.
