Step into the cold season in style with these warm accessories
Don't allow yourself to freeze in this baridi
As we have always insisted, cold weather is not an excuse to look frumpy in layers and layers of clothes. You can keep warm while still being stylish. What you will need to do is invest in cold weather wardrobe must-haves such as a cashmere trench coat, great leather boots which you can wear when the heavy rains start, chunky sweaters and hooded jackets as well as warm leggings. These come in really handy when you need to keep warm without compromising on your style. Still, it’s always necessary to throw over some accessories for added warmth and comfort. The past few days have been super cold and you need to add these cold weather accessories to your closet to help keep you super warm.
1. Wool berets.
Pronounced as Bere-h, this is the IT accessory of 2018. You need to cop yourself one of these on-trend oh so Parisian hats that will keep you warm all day. The good thing with the beret is that while it’s mostly an informal wear, you can find a way to incorporate it into your daily office wear or if it’s not allowed, you can wear it to work and while leaving work.
2. Thick stockings.
You don’t plan on wearing your skirts with bare legs I hope? Instead, invest in thick pantyhose either in color black or your skin tone color that you can wear with skirts, dresses or even shorts over the weekend and beat the cold.
3. Fuzzy socks or wool house shoes.
These will keep your feet warm when you’re lounging at home, watching TV or even doing your cooking.
4. Chunky scarves.
The thin cotton scarves do not do much to keep you warm. Go for the chunky scarves made of wool that can be wrapped around the neck or thrown over as a poncho. Remember your Masai blanket back at home can act as a chunky scarf too.
5. Woolly collar.
A woolly collar will perfectly complement your office wear while keeping you warm all day. You can get woolly collars in thrift markets that sell scarves.
6. Wide brimmed felt hats.
When attending outdoor events, wear your winter hat to keep you looking warm and stylish. The beauty of felt hats is that they can be paired with just about any casual weekend outfit.
Here, we call them gumboots. Contrary to popular belief, gumboots are actually stylish and can be worn and styled for cold weather to achieve a fashion-forward cold weather style look. Wear your wellies with an army jacket, leggings and turtle neck then complete the look with a rolled up beanie.
