If you, like us, hail from the tropics where there is nothing but sun all year round…

Okay, so we’re not from Miami, but same thing.

You’ll understand the dilemma of visiting a temperate country. By all means, yay for cooler temperatures – but wtf do you wear when slippers are practically a wardrobe staple and half your wardrobe consists of shorts? Plus, winter wear tends to be a little pricey.

Obviously, Taobao to the rescue! Before you deride the quality of the goods, don’t forget that their winters look like this in certain parts of China!

We’ve picked out some of the better ones here:

1. Rock it like Kendall Jenner with this timeless cable kit sweater. The side slits and asymmetric design’ll ensure that if you don’t look like the Victoria Secret model – at least you won’t look like your gran.
