How To Look Good On A Cold Night In Your Skates

Yes, it’s that time of year again. You know - when the nights are getting even colder and even more Christmassy and you think how much fun ice-skating will be with all your mates. And you’re not wrong. It is great. But if you’re like us, you always regret trying to look too stylish and end up absolutely freezing or you try too hard to keep warm and end up looking like your Aunty Pat on the Christmas day walk! So what with most of London’s ice rinks opening up pretty soon (see list below) we thought we’d put together some ideal ice-skating outfits comprised of our pick of this season’s finest outer wear. Aren’t we nice? You’d better get your skates on (sorry we had pun overload and had to fit one in!) and head to the high street to snap up these bargains and ensure you look snuggly but sexy rather than cold or old this winter!

First up is this camel duffle which is the perfect blend of cosy and stylish. The fluffy fleece-lined hood is bang on trend and will keep you warm and dry and the cute heart detail adds a little something extra. It’s on sale too so hurry hurry hurry! Team with H&M dusty pink snood; there’s nothing like a snood to keep you warm on a crisp winter’s evening.


Snood, £4.99 H&M

Also from is this super sexy military trench. The shape and cut is uber flattering and will look even better with leather look leggings and these fantastic stud detailed gloves from Matalan.

This shearing waterfall jacket from New Look looks so warm and snuggly you won’t want to take it off. It comes in 4 gorgeous colours. This deep red hat and scarf set from H & M would go great with the chestnut one.

£29.99, New Look

£7.99, H&M

Capes are in (as featured in Roar’s Oct issue of course!) and we have fallen in love with this designer looking camel military cape. We really couldn’t believe it’s available on the high street! Team with these chocolate arm warmers, also Dotty P’s.

£65, Dorothy Perkins

£10, Dorothy Perkins

A leather bomber is a must for those biker chic fashionistas and this one from New Look is a complete bargain at £39.99. Team with possibly the cutest thing we have ever seen – this panda hooded scarf-  for cute meets racy and voila you’re the hottest thing at the rink (including the hot mulled wine)! 

New Look

£32.99, River Island

Oh and these are simply the most amazing things we have seen in a long time, or quite possibly ever! Add some high glamour to the ice rink with these beauties. Team with virtually any jacket or coat, they are far too fabulous to miss out on for only £3.50! 


And here’s our pick of THE places to go skating in your new outfits. Check out these dates, prices and special events:

  1. Went skating at my local (Streatham Ice Rink) on whim last week. First time in ages, really unsteady, but only fell over once (and bf broke my fall!) and LOVED it. Must distract from my clumsiness by looking more chic next time....
