Elvis fans in the snow, March 1960

Since moving to London from the bleak north, I’ve definitely become a bit – as we say in Sheffield – nesh. I don’t mind a bit of cold, but icy winds and hours spent waiting in the snow at Norwood Junction make for a miserable commute.

Still, what’s more important? Dressing for the weather or looking good? There’s a debate on the subject on the ASOS blog at the moment and I’m firmly in the Kate Moss camp – big furry coat, no real other concessions to winter.

Anyway – here’s the answer. Check out these Elvis fans meeting the man himself in March 1960. Nice wool skirt, cashmere, scarf and a coat – looks good, probably doesn’t keep you that warm.
