#FASHIONFIX: Stylish Threads For Stormy Weather

Share this!

OK, “fashion” may be a stretch when it comes to outdoor wear but you can still inject a dash of style as well as practicality in dressing for New Zealand’s great outdoors. And this is def high tech wear designed to keep you warm without bulky layers. It’s the Macpac winter range, and if the hail and storms of last weekend weren’t enough to get you into warmer threads, than these pics might do the trick!

I became a Macpac gal when, in Napier, gosh, many years ago, I was mother-funken FREEZING (it gets to below 0 degrees there in winter when the frosts hit and there’s snow on the Kaweka Ranges!!). My sis could bear my shivers no longer and pretty much threw me into the car and took me to Macpac where I got my first puffer jacket.

And I never looked back! An investment piece that has stood the test of time – seriously, it still looks new.

Since then I have added a few more Macpac threads (not as many as my sister has) enough for all seasons.

BUT… because I am a city gal at heart, my awesome #nzgirlhack is to keep wearing my fave jean jackets to brunch but popping on a gorgeous, light layer underneath with a peep of colour showing through with the Macpac Uber Light Down Jacket, which is tiny when bundled into it’s bespoke carry bag.

Warm and city slick – best of ALL the worlds!! So my hot tip, is whatever your style, get warm this winter, you will not regret it!!! 🙂
