While it may not be heavy coat weather just yet, that doesn't mean winter fashion isn't on our radar! As the weather gets cooler, warm knits, buttery leather, and colourful faux-fur toppers all round out our winter wish list. Not to mention, there's nothing like a cool scarf for keeping your neck warm and to help pull together a layered winter outfit.
No matter what your personal style consists of, Get The Look is listing the five fashionable accessories that will keep you warm during the brisk weeks ahead and how to wear them, inspired by street style stars.
WINTER FASHION: 5 MUST-HAVE ACCESSORIES
A GIANT SCARF
When winter rolls around, there's nothing better than a giant, blanket scarf for keeping you warm – not to mention, for functioning as a desk blanket when you're at work. No matter how blah your outfit is underneath, a giant scarf has the power to add a little life and style to your look since they come in an assortment of different styles, fabrics and patterns. Pair your blanket scarf with a cool leather jacket, jeans and booties for the ultimate laidback, yet stylish winter look.
Like a giant scarf, a little faux fur can make just about any outfit super chic, and its perfect for days when you have to look put together but don't feel like making an effort. Whether you're wearing a pullover hoodie, a jacket or a simple blouse, a fur topper layered on top of your outfit will give you major style points. If you're feeling extra daring, opt for a cool faux-fur scarf in a bold colour that will pop against an all-black ensemble, and drape it over one shoulder.
A CHIC HAT
When it comes to staying warm in the winter, it's no secret that a hat of any kind is an absolute must. This season, keep your ears cozy with a chic toque or a wide-brimmed felt hat in black, dark green or maroon. Faux fur ear-muffs are a super stylish alternative to hats if you'd rather not ruin your hair!
If you aren't into statement faux fur or over-the-top hats, this season make a subtle statement by trading your knit mittens for a chic pair of bright coloured gloves that will give your look a little bit of colour. Think orange, pink, red or blue! Pair them with a long overcoat and an oversized scarf for the ultimate winter look.
While sock booties have quickly become one of this season's most coveted shoe trends, that doesn't mean we can count out socks all together! When shopping for additions to your cool weather wardrobe, find a pair of coloured or patterned (preferably knit) socks that will add a touch of whimsy when worn above your heeled booties.
