Whether it’s a bejewelled headband, leopard-print scarf or loud legwarmers, there’s something about ice skating that gets people thinking about cold-weather flair. Maybe it’s that, on a –10°C day, frumpy parkas are all but mandatory. Or maybe it’s the temptation to grace onlookers with Michelle Kwan–worthy moves. On a chilly Saturday at Nathan Phillips Square, we spotted the usual mix of couples skating hand-in-hand, wary tourists attempting to adapt to the Canadian climate and speedsters intent on showing off. Here, the best ice-skating looks we saw.
