It often sparks friendly debate, but when it comes to fashion, winter has something on summer. Why? Because layering. And boots. And hot chocolate. Did we mention layering? While those of us in the Middle East are unlikely to be cloaking ourselves in cozier threads until later in the year, the rest of the northern hemisphere are already embracing outerwear.
