    By now, we all know that Gosling knows how to pull off a jacket. But bomber jackets won’t keep your blood pumping come winter. Keep it casual with a plaid patterned shearling teamed with a cardigan.

    If we can learn anything from A-Listers it's that cardigans are still cool. Sure, they might have dropped off the High Street rails but used to compliment rather than a standalone item and you're good to go. Perfect for layering, especially if you play with shades like Mr Reynolds.
