Brrr- whack the heating up, get your electric blankets going and put on another layer people, it’s cold out! The coolest months of the year are upon us and now that Christmas is done and dusted, suddenly those low temperatures aren’t so magical anymore. Thankfully balaclavas are having a moment this season, and we’ll forever be advocating for style + comfort + warmth wrapped into one, thank you very much- there will be no bare legs in the name of Fashun around these parts!
From berets to beanies, mittens to Ugg mini boots (iykyk), there are endless ways to jazz up your coat and thermal leggings look this winter and accessorise in a way SJP would be proud of. Add a hat, scarf, gloves, and of course mask to your daily lewk and watch how easy it is to dodge that ex you’d rather not see from across the Sainsbury’s fruit and veg aisle now. What did we say about comfort and practicality again!?
I feel like in the UK I forget how cold it can be EVERY year, then all of a sudden it’s January and my fingers are freezing every time I leave the house. I’ve actually already picked up a few of these items all ready for winter, I couldn’t resist jumping in the ultra-mini UGG boot trend after seeing how good they looked post-gym (I also think they’ll be great for travel). Azurina does beautiful personalised accessories and this scarf is SO soft! Invested in some North Face gloves with ‘e-tips’ they’re quite thin so I can slip them in my small handbags. Cashmere socks are such a delight and really do make a difference in terms of warmth, perfect if you always have cold feet when you go to bed like me. Berets seem to be the new beanies, not sure if I can get it to sit right on my head yet but I’ll give it a go!
Azurina, Brown Blanket Scarf, £35
Oliver Bonas, Cashmere Blend Bed Socks, £24
ASOS, The North Face Etip Recycled gloves in beige, £35
ASOS, ASOS DESIGN wool beret in stone, £10
UGG, CLASSIC ULTRA MINI BOOT, £125
I live with a good accessory in winter to brighten up all the dull thermals and layers aplenty, and there are some real gems online this year! We shared some balaclavas on a Zoella post earlier during autumn and I’ve been contemplating if I’m cool enough to wear one ever since then. As the temperatures continue to drop I feel like for practical reasons alone it’s a must! As a matter of urgency though I need some gloves because this gal has seriously poor circulation and my hands are COLD AF lately. I love these kitsch mittens!
It’s that time of the year when I start getting weirdly into berets again and Emily in Paris season 2 is only partly to blame. During the winter months, I gravitate towards snug layers and cosy accessories because I’m a nicer person when I’m warm. I’ve been dream shopping these Birkenstocks for far too long so I’m taking that as a sign I need these glorified slippers in my life. I’ve also linked to a pair of shearling gloves and a chunky scarf because no one above the age of 30 likes a chilly neck and frozen phalanges when they’re out and about.
Can’t go wrong with some good quality winter accessories to keep you warm this winter! I’ve linked a cosy lilac scarf from ASOS for a pop of colour, touch-screen gloves are a life saver when it’s freezing but you’ve got texts to reply to. I’ve linked a really bright green beanie from Mango which I think will look so cool with a lot of outfits and lastly thermal socks are a must-have in the winter to wear under your boots, it keeps you so much warmer.
I wish i had the head for a beret. I’m half French, it should suit me but it just doesn’t so i embrace bobble hats and beanies in a big way come winter. I bought some North Face boots this year and they’ve been an absolute godsend on the cold days. I feel like, as long as your head and feet are warm, everything else takes care of itself!
