Turn up the style, turn down the heat

Posted in Cool stuff by Nneoma Ulu on October 28, 2010

Brrrr… it’s cold outside. Well, it isn’t actually cold where I am at the moment (in Pennsylvania, visiting family), in fact its like summer here. I wasn’t planning on it being warm so I packed up a bunch of winter woollies and I’m finding myself lounging around in almost underwear to keep cool. But I do know that in London its freezing and there is nothing like a good bit of knitwear to keep you warm and that is exactly why Global Cool is convincing fashionistas everywhere to turn down the heat and turn up the style. Global Cool is a green lifestyle organisation that inspires people to think differently and live differently. This winter, they are hoping that rather than reach for the temperature dial and crack up the heat, that we reach for our favourite jumper instead and use less energy at home.

They don’t just want us to do it all by ourselves! Global Cool have kindly developed this simple how-to guide that you can use to transform your old favourite jumper into something all shiny and new. You can download the full style guide here.

Gemma Cairney, DJ and stylist, is leading the charge and held a workshop at the recent Britain’s Next Top Model Live that you can check out here:

And if all of that hasn’t convinced you, the lovely people at Global Cool are giving you the chance to win £100 worth of Topshop vouchers simply by showing off your favourite jumper. To enter, all you need to do is upload a photo of yourself looking fabulous and warm in your jumper here by 10am on Thursday 28th November. Two runners up will win £25 worth of vouchers and the winners will be decided by a guest judge and this week, yours truly, is one of the guest judges. Try your luck, you just might win!
