It can be tough to look fashionable during the brutal winter months- a time when we are forced to live inside heavy coats. As soon as the cold hits, I immediately reach for my cozy accessories (I have a whole drawer full!). In addition to providing added warmth, these key pieces can also up the chic-quotient of even the simplest styles. Cozy accessories also have a longer shelf-life than heavy coats and chunky knits, cozy accessories and are ideal for those transitional months before and after winter when it’s chilly, but still far from unbearably freezing.
Read on for a fabulous selection of winter accessories!
