An adorable accessory that everyone should take advantage of this winter. While beanies are cute, there are other styles that can keep you both warm and on-trend. Like fedoras! Fit for any season, get a ball of wool or felt fedora hat that will keep your head warm without sacrificing style.

Big Scarfs

Whether it’s for fashion or warmth, a chunky knit scarf will add a cozy element to every outfit. It creates depth that usually comes with winter layering and will add more interest to your outfit, especially if you have a variety of them to choose from on a daily basis. Or even better, find yourself a large blanket scarf to keep you nice and cozy.

Oversized Sweaters

This can be thrown over a pair of jeans or a mid-length skirt for added warmth and style. A simple, neutral, oversized sweater will make any outfit look chic and on-trend this season.

Turtleneck Tops

While many sweaters can keep the majority of your upper half warm, a stylish turtleneck goes above and beyond. Keeping your neck snug while rocking a cute blazer or statement coat should be everyone’s goal this winter. Paired with some jeans and boots and you’re good to go.

Knit Dress

The various styles of knit dresses seem to be here to stay for a while. Grab a figure-hugging silhouette or a loose fit maxi dress, it’s up to you. Just as long as it’s knit, and the right knit to flatter your build.

Leather Jacket

Having a basic, black leather jacket in your wardrobe is a necessity everyone needs. You can dress it up or down, all while layering it however you want. This will add an edge to whatever you pair it with, day or night.

A Statement Coat

In winter, outerwear is just as important as the outfit it’s shielding. Make sure your coat is up to par, whether it adds a splash of colour to the mix or is a chic neutral shade. Thinking about faux fur? It’s a must-have winter fashion to keep you warm and trendy. Neutral colours are best, but if you can rock a blue or pink furry coat, then why not?

Ankle Boots

An essential during winter, ankle boots will elevate any outfit they’re paired with. Stylish and versatile, these shoes will never go out of style. Pair them with a dress, cropped jeans, a mid-length skirt, ankle boots that will look good with everything.

Thigh-High Boots

Too sexy for winter? Never, as thigh boots will take any outfit up to the next level. They can be paired with skinny jeans or warm leggings and a thick knit sweater for a completed look.
