5 Stylish Accessories to Transform a Winter Outfit
December 2nd, 2020
Wearing the right accessories really has a way of adding oomph to an outfit and transforming it from zero to ten in an instant. Depending on the season and the occasion, there are some cute pieces you can add to whatever you’re wearing that will not only elevate your outfit but boost your confidence. There’s an old saying ‘I’m a nicer person when I like my outfit’ and for some, this quote is absolutely true! So, without further ado, we’ve chosen our top 5 that in our opinion does a good job of adding the wow factor.
A scarf is a must-have for the winter season, as no winter outfit is complete without one. This season there are so many to choose from and they come in so many cute colors and sizes, whether you prefer bright, chunky, puffer, neckerchief, oversized, or poncho.
Our fave this season is the puffer scarf, it’s a strip of quilted fabric just like a duvet cover, a little like wearing your duvet cover around your neck with the added coziness of a puffer jacket. This neutral one with a pull-through slit adds extra warmth and effortless style to your winter coat or jacket.
Another must-have is a warm winter hat as they are definitely a winter essential, especially as heat is mostly lost through your head, so, even if you’re not really a hat person, you should invest in one, if only for those cold, snowy days when the temperature drops below freezing.
There are so many to choose from, bucket hats, different knit styles, berets, shearlings, felt fedoras, and panamas. We love beanies, they go with practically everything, cozy and comfy, come in a variety of colors, and depending on the knit, won’t break the bank, you’ll definitely be able to find a hat to update your collection.
Gloves are such an attractive accessory, not only do they keep your fingers warm and toasty, but they can add a touch of glam and subtle or vibrant color to your outfit. They get snubbed in the fashion stakes from year to year and hardly ever get a mention. Back in the day they were a fashion staple and a lady never went anywhere without them. They may make a comeback, particularly with today’s climate, plus most gloves are made for texting, so you don’t have to take them off to use your phone, as a result you might see more people wearing them. Whether your preference is knitted, leather, faux leather or faux fur cuffed, they’ll definitely add style to your look.
A chic pair of tights not only looks great with a short skirt or dress outfit, it makes a change from wearing leggings, pants or jeans. Tights also look cute under a pair of shorts, especially if they’re faux leather. There are so many patterns and textures to choose from. Whether you fancy opaque, glittery, ladylike, sophisticated, or street style there’s a pair for every taste. There’s no doubt that tights will make you look, and feel even more amazing than you did before! We love this rhinestone fishnet pair, worn undershorts with heeled boots for a glam festive look.
Knee High Boots
Last but not least, another winter essential is a stylish, chic pair of boots to take you all the way through winter. We love them as they’re easy to style, always in, as they never really went out, and make the fashion rounds every season. They can be dressed up or down, everyday casual or paired with a dress for an evening look. Every now and then, all you have to do is add some knee highs to an outfit and there you have it – instant elevation!
