Stilettos out as freezing rain blows in

It shouldn’t happen to a fashion editor.

Milan Fashion Week is an opportunity for the style set to show off their new season – read spring – purchases, but freezing temperatures have quickly put paid to that. And nowhere more so than south of the ankle.

The average temperature for February in the city is between three and a positively balmy eight degrees but today it’s set to plummet as low as minus one, with constant rain (if you’ll pardon the pun) to boot.

It could be worse, though – at least it’s not snowing.
