It’s not always easy to look good and keep warm in the winter; well that’s all about to change. This year it’s been made extra easy to stay wrapped up and cozy but also abide by the laws of fashion. You can avoid any fashion faux pas this winter with just a few key items; forget the woolly hat that your grandma knitted for you when you were twelve, just grab yourself a pair of fluffy ear muffs – for that extra bit of glamour, try some with an animal print design.
For a little extra warmth forget the thin scarves that are all the fashion in summer because they’re knit in the winter. The winter fashion is a huge, chunky knit with pom poms for a little added fun. They may not be the most practical of winter accessories but they sure do keep your palms warm. Fingerless gloves really are in, and for a little added practicality some come with a small, mitten like, pouch that is buttoned to the back of the hand; this way when it’s extremely cold you can keep your fingers warm too.
The snood – yes it really does exist – this is a mixture of a hood and a scarf; this is the ultimate winter fashion accessory that looks great with any style outerwear.
Beanies look great all year round, whatever the weather, but specifically for the autumn/ winter season why don’t you give the knitted beanie a try. Knitted specifically for the cold seasons in traditional autumn colors, this is another accessory where you just can’t go wrong.
If you’re not really the beanie sort of girl why don’t you try a cool girl trapper? These are for the super casual women out there; with the super stylish design and the fluffy inside you can be cool, casual and warm all winter long.
The most practical of all accessories is the multi-tasking scarf that acts as a scarf and pockets to hold your essentials. This is a great idea if you weren’t thinking practically when you bought a winter coat without pockets, or maybe one day it will be warm enough to go out without a coat and you still need somewhere to store your phone, lip gloss and chewing gum.
If the fingerless gloves sound like they’ll leave you a bit too chilly why don’t you go in completely the other direction and buy yourself a pair of extra fluffy mittens – these are sure to keep you warm.
With a selection of these must have accessories, you seriously can’t go wrong, you’ll be the envy of your friends as not only the coolest in the gang but also the warmest.
