Winter is finally here and it’s time to dig out all your favourite winter woollies and invest in some new accessories to lift your look this season. Here are just some of the ways you can elevate your fashion to create cohesive and cosy looks throughout the colder months.
The Power of Accessories
Accessories are a fantastic way to bring your look to life and can increase the longevity of your wardrobe and prevent you from becoming bored of wearing the same outfits over and over. Carefully chosen accessories can create focal points for your outfit that show off your personality and can be a conversation starter when meeting new people. Accessories can also add elegance and function to your overall look and help to highlight your best features.
Winter accessories don’t just embellish your style, they’re also practical and functional, helping to keep you warm in the cold months. Don’t be afraid to put on more accessories than you usually would and layer up with items that will keep you warm like gloves, scarves, hats and neck warmers. Just be sure that your accessories match your outfit and each other if you want to present a cohesive and elegant look. When it comes to accessorising your way through winter, don’t forget your lower half too! Adding some thicker, black tights to your outfit means you can still wear your favourite dresses during the winter and stay warm.
With wet, icy and slippery conditions, boots are the perfect winter shoe to help keep you safe, fashionable and upright! Choose boots with chunky soles and treads that will provide grip when walking through snow or even on wet leaves that can be just as slippery as ice! As well as being highly practical, boots are also incredibly versatile as they can be paired with skinny jeans, leggings or tight-fitting trousers to reduce wind chill on your legs and to show off the boot itself or worn with dresses, skirts and tights for special occasions. You can choose from the best women’s boots and pair them with thick socks to help keep your feet warm and dry no matter what the weather.

Think Colour and Texture
Colour and texture are important considerations for your winter accessories. Winter is the perfect time to pull out those deeper colours, such as reds, and golds and rich shades like burgundy and emerald green. Alternatively, you might want to stick to classic neutrals, like black, white and grey. No matter what colour palette you choose, make sure that it’s cohesive so you can easily wear pieces together and pair them with different outfits without clashing. The textures of your accessories can make all the difference in how your outfit looks and feels. Fabrics like corduroy, velvet and wool really come into their own at this time of year, along with luxurious fabrics like cashmere and silk.
