Accessories You Need For Winter

Now that Christmas is most definitely on its way, it’s time to think about stocking up those winter wardrobes. It’s the perfect time of year to dig out your favourite cozy cardigans and snazzy tights, perfect for mixing and matching with jeans for daytime, or warming up an LBD in the evening. We’ve already seen the trends this season for 1970s throwbacks in swishy dresses and androgynous silhouettes with long duster coats, capes, and trenches. These are the essentials you’ll need for the winter.
  
Hats
The perfect way to accessorize the fur coats and trenches in this season is with a stylish woollen hat. A knitted beanie adds a campus cutie vibe to a duffel coat and jeans, especially fairisle designs; while embellished riders’ caps add an extra sparkle to a black jumpsuit on a night out. Wide-brimmed wool or felt hats will keep you nice and toasty while remaining easy to pair with any style of coat, especially in keeping with this season’s key colours of mauve, camel, and black. For a stand-out effect, choose a colour to contrast with your hair - a camel hat for dark hair, and vice versa.




Scarves
After the skinny scarf enjoyed a long-awaited revival last season, it’s time to embrace the humble scarf in its original, snuggly form. Wide, wool tartan scarves perfectly complement wool coats or fur, as well as adding a soft grunge edge to the leather trousers and skirts on trend this winter. For a snuggly casual outfit, pair a thick knitted scarf with a raincoat. Size is the most important matter when adding a scarf to an outfit - for an on trend, androgynous silhouette, the ‘boyfriend,’ or oversized scarf is the way to go. You’ll feel as cozy out on your coffee run as you do snuggled in a blanket at home.

Footwear
Sadly it’s time to tidy away all the strappy heels from the summer. Fortunately, this season’s selection of boots have something for everyone, from chunky biker flats to 1960s go-go wedges. Chelsea boots, as with last year, are making a triumphant return, offering a perfect compromise between punky buckles, height, and comfort. Look out for different textures, which can add an extra element to an otherwise monochrome outfit, with snake, crocodile, and leopard skin fabrics dominating the market. For fashionistas looking to add some flair to an office dress code, both patent, matte, and suede loafers are ideal as either flats or heels. Sporty gals will love the return of 90s leisurewear, from skates to retro-inspired trainers (perfect for winter morning jogs).

  1. I love a good scarf in the winter and have built up a pretty decent stash over the years. I'm glad to hear that biker boots are back in as that means I don't need to buy new footwear.

  2. You just can't beat a good scarf, I think having a cold exposed neck makes me feel much colder than anything else. Not sure about the boots, i'm more of a trainers lover myself!

  3. I can't exist without warm and soft scarf and hat in winter. This year I got a very short hairstyle so I definitely won't live without this lovely couple)

  4. I'm such a boots lover - I have multiple pairs of ridiculously similar black boots! I struggle finding scarves I like, but I've currently got a red snood that does the trick perfectly :)

  13. Yes! I'm totally obsessed with a great pair of winter boots, once you've picked he right pair they can go with everything and investing certainly helps as they last through the snow and rain! Cute picks. xo

  18. I appear to have misplaced all of my gorgeous scarves from last year. My head really doesn't suit hats but I am feeling the need for one this year. If only to convince my 12 month old that they are cool :p

  19. It's Summer 24/7 here in Malaysia, but a good scarf is an essential on a rare chilly day! x

  23. I love the winter, it's my favourite time of year. I have a great selection of snuggly scarves and boots but no hats - I just look stupid in them!

  24. I love this time of year for fashion. Even though I was born in the summer I'm definitely a more autumn/winter person. I struggle with hats as I've got quite a big head so I tend to just not wear them, but I like the tip you've given under the 'hats' section about picking a hat that contrasts with your hair colour, my hair is dark brown at the moment and I'm thinking I may have to try a few camel colour ones on to see how they look.

    I'm also obsessed with Chelsea boots at the moment and I'll be putting a wishlist together soon.

    And I'm a scarf obsessive, nothing better then a thick chunky scarf to snuggle into on very cold days.

  25. A good pair of boots, with a good sole on them is essential for winter. I hate my feet being cold. Good socks are a must too

  28. Scarves are my Winter essential - the bigger and bulkier, the better! Trouble is, they're so warm and snuggly they're impossible to take off again once you're inside. No? Just me then!! ;)
