When Winter comes around, it gets hard to maintain your sense of style while trying to keep warm. Even though we may want to go out in ballet flats, a loose-fitting tank, and a light jacket, we know we would immediately regret that decision when we step out the door. So we are forced to be "practical" and wear layer upon layer of sweaters, jackets, tights, jeans, and boots, along with that scarf, that hat, and those gloves. But rather than grumble over all the things we can't wear in Winter, let's get excited over all the great Winter accessories that we won't get to wear once the snow melts! I put together a "Winter Accessories" set on Polyvore of all my favorite accessories I get to wear this Winter season!
Gloves, hats, scarves, shrugs, and, yes, sunglasses. There are so many different styles to choose from! My favorite gloves are the ones with the bow on them, I have a pair of black and white striped gloves with a bow on them myself! Long leather gloves are always a good choice for when it is especially cold, they will keep your hands the most warm. For hats, you could go for any style, covering your head is the key to staying warm! If you feel like going for a more classy look, pick the cloche hat, and if your feeling in a more cozy mood, put on the knit beanie!
Sometimes the coldest days are the clearest days, so sunglasses are a must! I recently bought a pair tortoise-shell square frames from Anthropologie, and a much less expensive pair of aviators from the car wash! You never know where you might find a fun pair of sunglasses! And my favorite accessory is the scarf: right now I'm big into the big and cozy knit scarves, but if it's not so cold out, I would go for a smaller scarf.
This Winter will probably be another cold and gray season, but it's no reason to get down about your wardrobe!
