When it comes to making your winter outfits pop, there’s a bunch of fresh and funky accessories that will do the trick.
There are a couple of golden rules when it comes to accessorising: don’t wear everything all at once, and matching is cool but not everything needs to match! All you need are a few key pieces on rotation that will help to add the final flourish to your look. We give you our top choices here:
Whether you’re rocking big gold hoops, geometric discs or look-at-me tassels, you just can’t go wrong when it comes to earrings. Remember, if you’re going big on earrings, keep the statement necklace at home – you don’t want to end up looking like a Christmas tree. It’s fun to match your earrings to your shirt or your nail polish, but clashing colours and textures make a cool statement too.
Not only does a hat help to hide a bad hair day, but it brings a whole new dimension to your look. This season, the classic paperboy hat has made a comeback. Worn straight or tipped to the side, it adds a cheeky tomboy edge to your look. And don’t overlook the good old knitted beanie. No longer reserved just for skater boys and girls, the beanie can be suitably dressed up.
Chunky, knitted scarves have their place, we can’t argue that. But so do soft and silky patterned scarves that tie effortlessly into a chic knot around the neck. A brightly coloured polka dot scarf or a pretty floral patterned scarf can sometimes be all your outfit needs for that final chic boost.
Forget designer shades that cost a bomb. Rather spend your money on more affordable sunnies so that you can switch them up to match your different outfits. From cat-eye to wayfarer shapes, mirror or smoky lenses, your optical options are open.
From chunky gold chains to bold beads or a mix of shapes and tassels, you’re spoilt for choice with the variety of fun statement necklaces on offer. When picking one, the key is to match it to one focal item in your outfit, whether it?s your shoes, your shirt, belt or bag. This shows you’ve put thought into your look.
From a classic tote shopper to an easy sling bag or an elegant clutch, your handbag is the finishing touch to your outfit, so choose well!
For the boys
Yes, men like to accessorise too! He certainly can’t get through winter without a warm, woolly scarf. Show him how to wear it in unique ways to add a cool edge to his look. He can also experiment with different sunglasses depending on the occasion and his mood. When it comes to headgear, a traditional felt fedora makes a super- stylish statement. If he’s dressed up for a smarter affair, add a bold patterned pocket square to his suit jacket for a quirky touch. Head to @jetmenswear on Instagram for some men’s style inspiration.
