You may be thinking that you don’t suit hats but I think anyone can pull off this winter essential. On a different note, they are perfect for disguising bad hair days and still help you to look stylish. Above all else they keep your head and ears warm, so they are definitely a must for you to add into your winter wardrobe. There are some subtle combinations in black or gray or you could go for something bright with a crazy colored pom-pom. The choice is yours and they are widely available everywhere. Buy a few for some variety and hit the streets with the cutest hat and warmest ears around!
Show Off Wrist Accessories: Much of you is covered up in the winter and, of course, for a good reason with plummeting temperatures. But your wrist is one area that you can still rock the accessories. Invest in a new watch or some fabulous bling bracelets to enhance your winter outfit. A new trend is the wooden watch, giving your outfit a sense of uniqueness while embracing the season we are in. Look online to find out the best wooden watches around. Layer bracelets and watches over a long sleeved shirt to show off your best accessories!
Enjoy the Cozy Knit: No winter would be complete without the cozy knit jumper. You may have been embracing your festive spirit with patterned Christmas knits, but you can still rock the style right through till Spring. Just choose a plain design or something more neutral, rather than the usual festive fair isle pattern!
Skinny Jeans and Boots are a Match Made in Heaven: Skinny jeans and boots are definitely a combination made for the winter. Whether you prefer to wear ankle or knee high boots, teaming them with a pair of well-fitted skinny jeans means that no matter what else you wear, you will look stylish and winter ready in one fail swoop. Teaming this with an oversized knit is the ultimate winter outfit, for sure!
Make Your Coat a Statement Piece: Finally, you are going to need to wrap up in an adorable coat to tackle the weather. But, if you do, make sure you choose a statement piece that is timeless. A well-fitted wool coat always looks smart or you might choose to layer a chunky sweater over a sweet fall peacoat.
