When it comes to winter (and this ridiculous level of cold we're all experiencing), layers are key. That being said, layers are often hard to make look good. You often look more like a marshmallow than someone with an eye for winter fashion. If you're going to look like a marshmallow, at least you can look like a cute marshmallow with these 9 must have winter accessories:
1. A Pom pom beanie
Nasty Gal has got you covered when it comes to the uber stylish pom pom beanie. Want something with a little bling? Then try the Study Up Pom Pom Beanie. The Hot Headed Pom Pom Beanie comes in two different colors but the pink will make you stand out from the crowd.
2. Ear muffs
3. A chunky scarf
Boohoo is known for their great going out tops and dresses but they also have fantastic accessories as well. When the temperature drops, the easiest thing to throw on is a chunky scarf. The Polly Chunky Knitted Tassel Scarf can also serve as a wrap and is a great transition piece from inside to outside. The Jenny Brushed Chunky Check Scarf adds some much needed color to any wardrobe.
4. Leather gloves
ASOS can be your one stop shop for winter gear. Weather it's that coat you've been eying for months or a kick ass pair of boots, you're certain to find it there. Forego the usual black or tan with a pair of Short Leather Metallic Gloves. If those are a little too out there for you, why not go the traditional route with the Black Leather Gloves with Touch Screen. You don't even have to worry about having to take the gloves off to text.
5. A winter neck warmer
Roxy isn't just surf... it's ski AND surf. A Winter Neck Warmer is a little smaller than a scarf and keeps close to your neck so that you don't have to worry about looping it around a million times. It's also just loose enough so that you don't feel stifled.
6. A faux fur Bag
Princess Polly is an Australian brand that's quickly making a name for itself in the states. Keep your things just as toasty as you are with a cute faux fur bag. You can get one in green to embrace your inner grinch all year long or in black, since black never goes out of style.
7. A snood
Shopping at Express is a great way to make your wardrobe feel ~grown up~. A snood is like an infinity scarf but sits higher up on your neck so that you don't need to keep messing with it. Try the twisted ombre snood or the metallic ombre snood to shake things up a bit and breakaway from the infinity scarf crowd.
8. Knit gloves
American Apparel is the best place to shop for basics. Get a pair of knit gloves in every color so that you can coordinate no matter what outfit you decide to wear. Plus you won't freeze your fingers off.
9. A faux fur hat
Go for the unexpected with SpiritHoods. You can't go wrong with the Mother bear or Mother Meow versions of the faux fur hat. They're certain to act as a statement piece in your winter wardrobe, with people often stopping to ask "WHERE DID YOU GET THAT?" After all, this ain't your grandmother's faux fur hat.
