With all the pandemic restrictions and social distancing, our exercise style and entire social life seem to happen while walking in the park these days. And, as Hippocrates said, “Unprecedented times require unprecedented measures“. Indeed, these strange COVID times definitely require unprecedented measures. So next time you get ready for walking with a friend or dog in the park, consider taking the big guns out to take the fashion style a notch up. Switch your waterproof hat for a stylish turban, glam up your coat with oversized brooches and a silk scarf like Gucci proposes in its new winter campaign.
Alexa Chung and Celeste walking in the park
Our favourite British It-Girl, designer and presenter Alexa Chung stars the digital campaign, “Winter in the Park”. Additionally, the actress Vanessa Kirby and singer Celeste also model for Instagram’s #gucciwinterinthepark. In the best Alessandro Michele more-is-more style, the smart women are photographed by Angelo Pennetta walking in the park in fabulous looks. Shot in London during the lockdown, they wear silk pussy-bow dresses, Mary Jane pumps, loafers and signature Gucci bags, including the GG Marmont.

Inspired by Gucci campaign’s glamorous atmosphere reminiscent of the ’60s and ’70s style, here are some accessories to elevate your winter walking in the park outfits. Our editors select independently all products featured on Notorious-mag. However, when you buy through our links, we may get a commission.
Old Hollywood vibe
Add some drama wearing a chic turban to keep you warm and fab. This elegant accessory that was popular in the ’40s and ’70s is back in style and will make you feel like a diva, even when walking in the park.
Wear retro oversized sunglasses to hide away from the paparazzi or just from the winter wind. We suggest models with lighter lenses so that you can wear them and look glam even when it’s cloudy.
A splash of colour and drama
Consider wearing Gucci’s sequinned gloves for walking in the park in style. Long dramatic theatre gloves in vibrant colours brighten up your winter outfits and take your park attire to a whole new level.
You can never have enough brooches
The easiest way to elevate and jazz up winter coats and jackets is by pinning one or more brooches on the lapel. But you don’t want to look like your old aunt. So be bold; choose oversized brooches with colourful crystals and feathers. In other words, have fun with your walking in the park style.
Instead of the usual black leggings, why not wear colourful tights? They keep you warm in the thermal leggings style but will make walking in the park much more cheerful and chic.
