Upgrade Your Cold Weather Style With These Accessories

It’s that time of year again when we’ve settled in to the cold weather, day dreaming of the time we’ll feel the sun on our shoulders instead of layers upon layers shielding us from the bitter elements. Now you may have found the perfect winter coat, but your hat, gloves, and scarf situation may only be ticking the box in the function category and seriously lacking any style.

One of my favorite ways to brighten these oh-so-dreary winter days is to add a bit of fun in the form of accessories. Often an afterthought, winter accessories in an unexpected shape, pop of color, or a bit of (faux) fur can be just the right amount of sartorial flair to help get you through yet another polar vortex.

Ahead are a few of my favorite cold weather accessories for a less than dull winter.

1. Asos Cable Faux Fur Pom Beanie, $21

Love the fun pom pom style of this hat and you can surprisingly wear this dusty pink color with so many coat colors as well.

2. West Elm Faux Fur Ombre Stripe Earmuffs, $24

Leave it to West Elm to create these gorgeous muffs.  The neutral ombre means it will work with any winter coat color.

3. Portano Black Leather Gold Studded Nappa Gloves, $56.99

The gold stud detail will add the perfect amount of rocker chic to your cold weather ensemble.

4. Jayley Teal Faux Fur Scarf, $48

Faux fur in bold colors is big this season, and this ladylike scarf is a beautiful addition to your cold weather wardrobe. Even better, throw this on over a simple tee, sweater, or dress to up your fashion game indoors as well.

5. Rosie Sugden Knit Cashmere Turban Hat, $165

This unexpected hat silhouette and color works well together creating an ultra-polished headwear option.

6. Wyatt Bright Lilac Wool Blend Gloves, $29

The lavender color is such a gorgeous way to add a little color to a more neutral winter coat option. I love the idea of pairing this with a camel colored coat.

7. Kate Spade Knit Faux Fur Cuff Mittens, $68

Talk about a statement maker! A little fur and a whole lot of color go a long way on these fun mittens from Kate Spade.

8. Pieces Oversized Tartan Blanket Scarf, $18.50

A classic pattern gets a seriously cozy upgrade with this oversized blanket scarf. Bonus: It can be worn a variety of different ways!
