Akika says: Your Essential Guide to Clubbing when the Mercury Drops

By Geisha Bar

Ok, so this weekend was brutal cold. Let me tell you, vodka was my saving grace. But you know what? Can’t keep the good ones down, and that’s why I give you this essential guide to clubbing when the mercury drops.

First thing you want to do is dress for your rare wintery adventure. Perfect excuse to break out that very expensive jacket that’s been languishing in the back of your cupboard. Ladies, it’s time to break out the boots – black, tan , cutting edge, cute – bring it on. If you really want to do justice to the icy cold — wintery white is eternally beautiful. Gents, dark jeans and dark shirts are a surefire winner. Can someone say temperature down, sex appeal up?
