Accessories Shopping List: Winter Essentials

Along with warm and cozy clothing, winter also translates into a whole new bunch of MUST HAVE accessories. Find out here which are this winter’s essentials, that you simply cannot miss:

Sunglasses

If you’ve ever stepped outside in heavy snow, before anyone had the chance to spoil its immaculate whiteness, you surely know how blinding the light reflected in the snow can be, making sunglasses mandatory even during winter.

Emporio Armani sunglasses


Fur snood

If you want to be truly stylish this winter, forget scarves and try a fur snood instead – one of the season’s most chic accessories. It will give any outfit a boost of glamour, all the while keeping you extra cozy.

Mango scarve


Waterproof watch

Even if it’s snowing, that doesn’t mean you have to give up your most elegant accessory – your watch. Just be careful to choose one that is waterproof, so that you can enjoy it all winter long.

Emporio Armani watch


Winter-themed jewelry

Celebrate the beauty of the cold season with a gorgeous piece of jewelry, be it a brooch, a ring, a pair of earrings or a necklace, in the form of a snowflake or any other winter-themed motif.

Hat

It’s very important that during the winter you protect your head from the cold, but what do you do when you notice that your ultra-chic outfit doesn’t really go with your old beanie? This season, forget about your average winter hat and wear a hat as your statement accessory.

Gloves

A wintertime MUST, gloves are such an elegant accessory that you needn’t even take them off while inside. If you’re worried that your rings could get caught in the lining or if they’re simply too big to go underneath the gloves, wear them on the outside, provided that they’re chunky enough. Statement rings worn over gloves are very IN right now.

Mango glove


Mango gloves – €44

Fur-trimmed footwear

To bear the coldness of winter in style, get yourself a pair of fur-trimmed boots or booties. For a super-chic effect, make sure that not only the lining is fur-trimmed, but also the outside border as well.

Gucci boots


Gucci booties – €1,120

Cozy body

Who said that first layer-type clothing needs to be unsightly? Try a knitted body that will not only keep you warm, but will also look super sexy.

Wolford top


The right bag

Given all the snow, during winter, you’re better sticking with a durable bag for daytime. Choose a colour blocked one, in black and the season’s IT colour – oxblood, and you’ll definitely be a sensation no matter where you go.

Mango shoulder bag


Statement accessories

make your entire look pop out with a statement accessory. Fur is extremely en vogue this season, so why not try a fur-trimmed cuff bracelet – an accessory with a surprising twist that is sure to put your entire outfit into focus.
