How to update your outfits with accessories for winter

With Winter drawing us further in to its icy clutches by the day, it’s time to add some warm and cozy accessories in to our wardrobes.  To avoid shrinking in to the shade with heavy knitwear and drab old overcoats, why not inject a little much needed glitz and sparkle in to those dark days with some smart and fun accessories for the winter months?

Keep it Cozy
Fur is undoubtedly ‘in’ this season, conjuring up images of rosy noses snuggled in hoods adorned with faux-fur and shearling trims.  Go one step further this winter and introduce fur to your must-have accessories too.  Handbags get the fuzzy treatment on the high street. Brightly coloured furs are teamed with sophisticated patent straps, sleek gold clasps and shiny buckles for the ultimate in arctic chic.

Dazzle ‘Em
Bring some drama to the dullest of days with a burst of sequins.  Invest in an unlikely embellished beanie hat to really catch the eye and glam up your seasonal outfit this year.  You’ll stand out in the crowd, be the sparkling envy of all the girls and have terrifically warm ears.

For Socks Sake
Don’t put your pretty dresses into storage just yet.  Chunky, woolly knee-high socks bring a winter update to girly dresses and skirts and look cute layered over tights.  Wear with wintery ankle boots to complete the look.

Girlie accessories and trinkets are sure to melt the hearts of any ice maidens out there.  Make the most of your days with fun and glitzy jewelry that can add sparkle and spice to any outfit.  Hunt for chunky jewels in shades of emerald and sapphire to really make the boys wink this season.

Sunglasses might seem an unlikely winter purchase but remember – they’ll protect your peepers if you’re jet-setting off to the ski slopes this year, and shade your eyes from the low winter sun.  They’ll also make you look like a celeb strutting down the high street so it’s totally win-win.

You might think that the wintery grey skies are a sign that you don’t need to protect your eyes, but those harmful UVA and UVB rays can still sneak their way through even the drizzliest of clouds.  If the higher risks of age-related cataracts, macular degenerations and cancer of the eyelids don’t have you literally super gluing sunglasses to your face, then remember that all that squinting will leave you with some pretty deep and nasty wrinkles.  No thanks!

But which sunglasses style should you go for in your winter pursuits?  The Wayfarer is clearly the choice of the Hollywood A-List, the retro 50’s cat eye could add sex-appeal to even the dreariest of snow gears, the chic oversized frame brings a touch of glamour to the proceedings and the aviator is the sporty staple that could streamline any winter look.
