In my experiences of British weather, the best way to stay toasty in the library and beyond is to layer up like a wedding cake.

A sequinned velvet pencil skirt might seem like overkill for the daytime, but it definitely added a little sparkle to my day. Velvet is such a warm material, especially combined with the longer length of this pencil skirt.

Knitwear instantly gives a cosier, more casual feel to an outfit; here I’ve paired a sparkly black-and-silver knit with a thin black woolly jumper underneath as a super-warm base layer.

Keep your legs cosy – not chilly – with black tights and black ankle boots that are perfect for running to lectures/ tutes/ spinning around under the Bridge of Sighs and frightening off all the tourists, à la me.

Finally, wrap up warm with a comfy, oversized biker jacket – a classic wardrobe staple.

And if you’ve got a little extra time in the morning, red lipstick is an instant pick-me-up for tired winter complexions!

As a last note, wear what you feel comfortable and happy in. Experiment with new combinations and see where it takes you… carpe sequines!
