We’ve collated this season’s hottest accessories to help you confront that icy breeze with ease.
You don’t need us to tell you that scarves are the staple of any winter wardrobe and this season there’s an emphasis on the statement scarves, with hot prints like tartan, houndstooth and leopard still going strong. Oversized chunky knits are your go-to for when that silky neckscarf just won’t do; these winter warmers are still very much à la mode, particularly in hot hues like mustard, emerald green and dusky pink.
Calling all fashionistas – we’ve got the winter shoe for you! Chunky black boots are stomping into style this season and there’s many different sorts of shapes to go around, from utilitarian, lug-soled combat boots perfect for the snow to more contemporary platform silhouettes for the office. As if we needed an excuse for a new pair of shoes…
You can never go wrong with a pair of supple black leather gloves – they’re versatile, functional and sophisticated, what more could you want? This season, black and grey are making way for punchier colours, varying lengths and statement detailing. Metallic or neon? Perfectly plain or boldly bedecked? Short and sweet or long and elegant? Whatever you fancy, these hand-warmers will keep you toasty.
Warm up your winter by trading in your trusty black opaques for a bolder, funkier pair. Dress your legs in block colours like red, white and green, or inject some fun into a plain ensemble with tights imprinted with monograms or the trendy patterns of leopard print or snakeskin. Side note: a colourful fleece-lined, ribbed or cable knit pair is a sure-fire way to keep your legs cosy under dresses and skirts this winter.
Berets have remained every fashionista’s winter must-have for many seasons now and we’ll continue to see them in every material imaginable this year, alongside other old-school styles like newsboy caps, regular caps, cloches, trooper hats – even good old fedoras! We’re pleased to note that beanies aren’t going anywhere either.
