And ultimately, when heading out becomes unavoidable, put up a barrier between yourself and the bad, bad world with a Michelin-man style puffer jacket or another type of material that keeps the cold out and gives you extra confidence by the virtue of its volume, in-your-face colour and daring design.

does a fittingly bold one that makes a statement of inner and outer power. Stella McCartney
keeps it simple and classic yet luxe, with a deep navy velvet number that allows you to blend in, and pop out, fuss-free.
