If you’re feeling brave, and want to keep your head fully covered this winter, then might we recommend the Cossack? Popular in the faux-fur variety, this nifty little head-piece is both functional and affordable, and gives your winter style a bit of an edge.

Fluffy Beanie
A true classic, the beanie is a staple piece for any wardrobe. If you’re looking to jazz yours up, then set your sights on one with a fluffy pom-pom, or a jewelled design. They’re great at keeping your head nice and toasty, and can cover up bad hair days. It’s a win-win situation here.

Faux-Leather gloves
A personal favourite, the faux-leather gloves offer serious style and warmth. Usually in black, these match with almost anything. If you want to channel your own detective aesthetic, then these are a must have; Hercule Poirot eat your heart out! For a more edgy biker look, opt for the fingerless faux-leather gloves. If you’re looking for a completely wintery look, then check out faux-fur trimmed gloves for that completely fabulous faux look.

Knitted Fliptop gloves
If all the above aren’t really doing it for you, then try a pair of knitted fliptop gloves. More commonly known as ‘the fingerless gloves with attachable mittens’, the fliptop glove is a god send. Easily able to switch from mitten to fingerless glove (which is extra handy when texting), they offer a level of practicality that the others just can’t manage. Plus, the knitted fabric means they are sure to keep you extra warm.

Check print scarf
Checks and winter go together like peanut butter and jelly. You just can’t have one without the other (well you can, but it won’t be nearly as good). There are very few things better than the check print scarf, which completes almost any look.

Crochet knit scarf
So, let’s say you want something so warm that it looks like your darling old grandma could have whipped it up on one of her evening knitting sessions. Why not opt for the crochet knit scarf; fully endorsed by grandmas round the country.
There you have it: a complete guide to winter accessories. Whichever you pick, you’re sure to look right on trend while battling the cold winter weather!
