With cold mornings and even colder nights, there’s no better time to accessorise. And while some accessories are one-trick wonders (ahem, fluffy bag charms), some have the power to transform every outfit and reinvent themselves with every wear. Ahead, we round up the four winter accessories every fashion girl on the go needs this winter.
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to pack your open-toed shoes away just because the weather’s cooled. A pair of statement socks - whether patterned, metallic or a punchy colour - can instantly elevate any ensemble. Wear them with your favourite summer mules for a sport-meets-sweet vibe, or let them peek out from the top of your go-to boots for a quieter take on the trend. The best part? A pair of statement socks doesn’t sacrifice warmth or comfort - good news for those trying to tackle the office chill.
Printed Silk Scarf
When endless styling possibilities come in one 60x60cm square, you can’t go past a printed silk scarf. Knotted around your neck, and it brings a layer of lightweight warmth to even the simplest of outfits. Tied around your head, it keeps rogue flyaways in check and masks second-day hair when you opted for ten more minutes in bed over shampoo (guilty!). Whether patterned or plain, there’s no denying the transformative power of this perennial accessory.
On the flip side, a scarf so big it’s got a life of its own is equally essential when deep winter strikes. A chunky knit scarf in a neutral hue will be on high rotation all season long, thanks to its throw-on-and-go appeal. Pile it high around your shoulders for a cosy look and feel, or drape it long and belt it around the waist to temper the volume. This multi-wear piece will take you from freezing commute to temperamental office heating and everything in between.
Not-So-Average Ankle Boots
While a pair of black ankle boots is the cornerstone of any cold weather wardrobe, this season is all about mixing it up with a pair of boots that pack a punch. While just as practical as your go-to neutrals, a pair of boots with a point of difference instantly makes any outfit feel fresh. Choose a pair that’s comfortable, walkable and built to last, and then let your imagination run wild - patent, velvet and embroidered boots are high on our wish list, and will look just as chic during the week as they do after hours.
