Let’s be honest.

Sheffield isn’t exactly the warmest city to live in during the winter months.

With snow a consistent threat, and consistent low temperatures making ice on the roads and footpaths a real problem, you need to stock up plenty of warm clothes to make sure you don’t freeze on your commute.

But don’t fear! Our winter style guide will keep you warm and professional during the colder months in Sheffield.

Read on for more.

Shoes and Boots

Your protection against rain, dirt and even snow!

The main things to consider when choosing winter footwear are:

  • Warmth – make sure you pick something that will keep you warm when walking around in winter. Remember there will be puddles that splash, and cold wind, and even snow drifts to negotiate!
  • Colours – choosing a darker shoe is often better to hide dirt, so consider going darker than usual with your colour choices.
  • Material – consider materials that are simpler to wipe clean, aka avoid things like suede that will often stain.

Under Layers

Layering is important, because when you’re going in and out especially, you’ll need to adjust depending on the varying temperatures of buses, offices with heating, and obviously the outdoors.

Our top choices for layering are:

  1. Short and long sleeves
  2. Colour combinations – choose the traditional colour combinations of winter.
  3. Don’t forget accessories – scarves and hats make a great addition to your layering, especially in the heart of winter.

Jumpers (we like cashmere)

A nice jumper can really polish off an outfit. We love a jumper that’s both warm, soft and high quality, which is why we always choose cashmere. When styling a cashmere jumper with the rest of your outfit, make sure the colours compliment. If you’re going with a really bright coloured jumper, ensure the rest of your outfit is understated, to make your vibrant piece pop (and stop you looking like a clown).

Sheffield Making Way For New Student Accommodation

It’s no secret that Sheffield city centre is dominated by accommodation tower blocks. From the Trigon facilities, to the Velocity Tower, your drive around the ring road is basically road marked by these huge buildings.

However did you notice that 9/10 of these are actually designed purely for students?

A recent article by the Star has revealed that 4 new tower blocks will be rising up in the near future, providing approximately 860 beds for students looking to come to the city.

The new builds will be going up opposite Wickes, on Stokes Tiles on Moore Street.

Other businesses in the area include Pinders, The Cabin and Games Workshop. It will most likely be targeted at Sheffield Hallam University students.

Student Housing Companies Comments

We asked Strawberry Student Homes for a comment on this issue, to which they said they “welcome the competition” and that “it will not change the need for students looking for a more homely student house in their 2nd and 3rd years of study”.

However other companies have expressed concerns with the new builds, with many invested in other central blocks saying that the competition is going to leave many larger buildings with empty beds that will be impossible to fill. These sort of accommodation blocks were considered solid investments in previous years, but with the large intake of money into them and new builds on the rise, the incremental gains look to be shallowing off a little.

We will see in the near future what impact this has on other accommodation around the city.
