We spend so much time focusing on the star pieces of our outfits that sometimes we forget about the finishing touches—accessories. The chilly months, more than ever, are the time to remember your hats, scarves, gloves, and other pieces that not only complete the look, but actually have a functional purpose. If we’re bound to another season of outdoor-only actives, we’re going to need to bundle up—stat. We’ve rounded up our favorite cold weather-ready accessories that will take your outfit to the next level and make subzero temps ever-so-slightly more manageable.
Madewell Recycled Cotton Cuffed Beanie (click here)
Made from an eco-friendly blend of recycled cotton and poly, this beanie features a classic winter hat silhouette and is offered in two fun shades and a neutral black. What makes this accessory so important is that keeping your head warm is essential to keeping the rest of the body warm as well. Plus, if you’re having a bad hair day, the beanie is an easy solve.
Free People Drew Cable Slouchy Socks (click here)
Speaking of essential warmth—if you don’t keep your toes warm, it’s game over, folks. Your thin little ankle socks from summer just aren’t going to cut it in your boots. It’s time to invest in some super-cozy socks, and these Free People slouchy socks are a great place to start. Plus, they come in four fun colors and you can get three pairs for just $30. That’s a winter win.
Anthropologie Haven Loop Scarf (click here)
First and foremost, the Anthropologie scarf selection is spot on. If this particular scarf isn’t for you, we highly recommend browsing the entire collection, because there’s something for everyone (and all at great prices). We love this scarf specifically because the color assortment is beautiful, the weight and length are great for layering, and we all know boucle is oh-so soft. It’s basically a do-it-all scarf that everyone should have in their closet as we head into the winter months.
Crew Cashmere-Lined Leather Tech Gloves (click here)
We don’t normally geek out over a style, but this one has us smitten. Let’s break it down. The exterior is leather, so you know these gloves are warm and durable. The lining is cashmere, so we’re talking super-soft and comfortable on your hands (which are usually very dry and need a little love in the winter). To top it off, they have tech capabilities, which means you’ll be able to use your phone without taking off your gloves. Did we mention you can get all of this for under $100? If you aren’t going to get these yourself, they’ll make an amazing gift.
We could talk all day about a never-ending, revolving collection of winter accessories, but if you stick to a variation of the above four, you’ll be all set for the season. Don’t let a lack of cozy accessories stop you from stepping out this winter.
