4 Must-Have Winter Accessories

In the winter, it is very important to pay close attention to sartorial details. Having good accessories to complete your outfits will result not only in great looks, but also in a comfortable experience during the cold season.

Discover four must-have accessories for a great winter experience.



Wool Socks



Wool socks come in many variations: they come in those classic, thick knit version, which can be great for wearing at home, but they also come in lighter versions that fit well even in dress shoes and keep you warm. The only thing to look out for is to make sure the styles go together well. Generally, socks with classic knit models don’t go very well with dress shoes, but they do go with boots or more casual styles, including sneakers.






Having warm hands in the winter is very important not only for your health, but also for your comfort. This is why investing in a quality pair of gloves is very important. Some gloves, such as leather gloves, are very versatile and go with anything form suit and coat outfits to sporty looks. However, other gloves, such as sports gloves don’t really go with anything else except sporty attire. If you can, it’s best to have more types of gloves: a pair for freezing temperatures and one for warmer temps, one for suits and one for the mountains and so on. Fingerless gloves can also be great for those who need to manipulate fine things a lot and gloves with special phone-suitable fingertips are ideal for those who can’t break from their gadgets.

Also, if you’re an avid snowball player, having a reserve pair will let you throw those snowballs relaxed.






Scarves, like gloves, come in many variations: thicker, thinner, depending on what the context requires. One thing that many people don’t often think when it comes to scarves though is that you can wear more than just one scarf with an outfit. Why try to cover everything with one scarf, making some type of odd origami around your neck trying to stuff every small hole that might let the air in? Add one more scarf and you are all set.

Adding multiple scarves will also add a lot of dimension to your look, so you’re scoring both on the comfort and on the style boards.



Ear muffs



Ear muffs are generally a happy meeting point between a hat that is too warm and nothing. Sometimes, regular summer caps can seem a good alternative, but then your ears will freeze. And, with ear muffs, you can always wear another type of headgear, such as a light hat or cap.


Wool socks, gloves, scarves and ear muffs can help you stay both warm and stylish during the winter time, which can turn out to be a great season to showcase your style.
