What To Wear When Visiting Wales for a Cozy Getaway


Jet-setting across the seven seas, or simply swapping neighborhood spots, What To Wear When is your weekly column for shopping inspiration.

If you’re going to embark on an autumnal escape, skip New England and go straight to the source for an authentic experience. By that we mean booking a trip to Wales, grabbing the most cushy cashmere wrap you can find, pairing it with some sturdy rain boots, and going for a drive in the countryside.

That’s exactly what Sophia Loren did in 1965, when filming for the movie Arabesque took her—and Gregory Peck—to Wales. The film was a slightly Hitchcockian mystery flick, featuring a professor, an Arab prime minister, a businessman, a pretty spy, and…hieroglyphics. Loren’s outfits certainly stole the show, ranging from a red patent leather trench coat to a pink marabou-trimmed robe, and even white thigh-high boots.

But it was the outfit she wore between shots, while based in a small town somewhere between Newport and Abertillery in Wales, that is worth re-creating. She reportedly wrapped herself in a blanket to ward off the chill—but her blowout was still entirely intact. For your trip to the Welsh countryside, shop CR’s cozy picks.
