With the temperatures beginning to fall and threats of snow rumoured already, it’s safe to say that winter is well and truly on its way. Whether it’s a season you look forward to, or you’d rather enter hibernation mode until spring, there’s no denying that whenever winter comes around so does a change in fashion.

The great thing about winter is that it’s all about accessories. Indeed, cold -weather accessories can bring some much needed cheer to an otherwise dull and drab winter wardrobe, so you need to make sure that you have a good stock of them. Luckily, there are loads of ways that you can accessorise your winter look and here’s 7 of them…

BOLD JEWELLERY 

In the winter, you tend to wear a lot more layers. Consequently any jewellery that you wear can get lost. A great way to tackle this head on is to wear some statement pieces. Think about investing in some bold necklaces, large rings and even bigger earrings. With all of this bold jewellery, you can be sure that your attempt of accessorising won’t be lost. Indeed, go big this winter and you’ll look super stylish as you brave the cold.

SCARVES 

Our winter wardrobes would not be complete without a number of gorgeous scarves. This wonderful winter staple not only keeps you warm, it can elevate your cold weather look no end, dramatising an otherwise dreary outfit. Moreover, they come in many different shapes, materials and sizes; think oversized scarves, snoods, printed and knitted styles. And as such, you can easily change up the look of your old winter coat (each and everyday if you like) simply by throwing one around your neck.

FAUX FUR BOOTS

Everyone likes to be snug and cosy in the winter and the perfect way to do this is to get your hands on some faux fur boots. The fluffy lining will keep you warm and comfortable while ensuring your outfit is bang on trend. We recommended getting a pair in a classic silhouette style with a faux fur cuff or to go all out with bold buckles and tassels.

HATS 

Another great way to accessorise your winter look is to wear a chic hat. You’ll find that so many different hats work well in the winter: woolly hats, berets and fedoras to name but a few. Moreover, the great thing about wearing a hat is that you don’t need to worry too much about the winter weather causing havoc with your hair. Win. 

GLOVES

Gloves may seem like a cold weather necessity rather than a fashion statement but if you want to accessorise your winter look then you should think about getting a pair. And contrary to popular belief, gloves needn’t be woolly, boring and mitten like. Consider getting some classic leather gloves or some suede ones that extend up your forearm so you can brave the cold in style.

SOCKS 

If you want to be warm in the winter then you are going to need some warm socks. The good news is that you can use your socks to accessorise your outfit by pulling them up over your tights or your jeans. This is great for adding a pop of colour to your outfit and brighten up a dull winter’s day. Oh and knee high socks are an essential winter fashion accessory.

WINTER COAT 

Our final tip for those who want to accessorise their look this winter is to invest in a nice winter coat. This is the coat that you are going to be wearing throughout the season so make it count. If you don’t fancy going for a bold colour, then consider choosing a stand out material. Or think about going for something that is waterproof. But above all, remember that it’s all about the style this winter – that and keeping warm of course.
