Whilst this season might be without some of our normal winter activities, we won’t be stopped from making the most of cold weather dressing and the pure joy that can be found from wrapping up in multiple cosy layers and a walk around the block- it’s the little things after all!
We’re looking for any way possible to spice up our days. Enter winter accessories! Hooray!
Wearing the same coat day in and out (even if it is only for a dog walk or corner shop run) can get a little tiresome, and in the age of empty calendars, we’re looking for any way possible to spice up our days. Enter winter accessories! Hooray! We’re talking berets, bucket hats, scarves, masks, gloves, boots, slippers, umbrellas and a staple pair of thick winter socks, we’re totally here for the long haul when it comes to accessorising to the max this season.
Go neutral to easily switch and sashay between your catalogue of outfit extras, or opt for bold, pattered and statement pieces to add some real pizzazz to your look. Whichever way you swing, the variety of picks in this week’s team Weekly Wants means there’s truly something for everyone!
I love accessorising in the colder months. A trusty clear umbrella is a must – I love being able to see through it rather than hope you’re not bumping into anyone as you walk! These gloves from Mango are so soft and probably my favourite I’ve ever owned. These Rototo slipper socks are an absolute MUST for the colder months & had to throw in a stylish face mask too of course!

I am a sucker for winter accessories, mostly because I am always freezing so layering up and having the right clothes with me at all times is essential. I am a big fan of the beanie with an obligatory fluffy pom pom, my favourites are from Amelia Jane London. You can’t beat a nice pair of sheepskin lined mittens or woollen gloves and let’s not forget staying warm inside, cashmere socks are a must-have in my book and also make the loveliest gift.

I absolutely love winter fashion and so I welcome layering and snuggly accessories with open arms! I’m not very adventurous with my colours and find myself almost always going for black, but I just think black goes with everything (pretty much) so it’s always really wearable. I recently discovered touch-screen gloves and erm, why didn’t I find these sooner?! You also can’t go wrong with a chunky pair of boots and I love these Chelsea style ones from ASOS, they are super comfy and look great on too.

I’m definitely in the minority but I just love Winter! I said what I said. There’s something about dressing in multiple layers and having the excuse to stay at home in the comfort of your slippers that just makes me inexplicably content. These faux fur sliders from Flattered are just the dream. It’s probably not the season to be looking out for sunnies but you need ’em in Winter too if you’v got watery eyes like mine and these are the best Celine dupes I’ve seen so I couldn’t resist. Finally, investing in a trusty pair of boots to see you through till Spring time is always money well spent in my eyes.

I always love wearing colour but in winter especially I need whatever pockets of sunshine and positivity I can find! Since ditching my fringe earlier in lockdown after about 4 years I can FINALLY wear hats without completely squashing my curtain bangs and ruining them. I never actually got around to watching Emily in Paris but I feel like berets are having a revival because of it, and I love this mint green one from ASOS. My hands are always the part of my body that gets the coldest but with headphones, bags for life, masks and phones I so often get tangled up with them, so these gloves in which I can actually use my fingers properly when needed is a saving grace when you’re juggling a million things.

Yesss everything I’ve picked is black, sue me! I’ve tried pretty pastel beanies and gloves in the past but they just get filthy and black is just so chic and timeless. I’ve gone for a cool utility crossbody to fit over every coat I own, a big scarf that can double up as a blankie, super long gloves so you don’t get that cringe naked wrist situation, and a beanie made of more of jersey fabric so you don’t get the even more cringe sweaty fluffy knit hair look.
