ACCESORIES REPORT: Knitted For Your Ears

Accessories Report

What says winter more than a ruffled peacoat and earmuffs? Earmuffs are one of my favorite winter accessories because they are usually inexpensive and can easily be collected in multiple colors. This Fashionista does a great job accenting her knitted earmuffs with her creme-ruffled peacoat trimmed in rustic gold buttons. What I like most about these earmuffs are that not only are they knitted, but the earmuffs have a knitted flower that helps tie in the trimmed ruffles around the tips of her coat.

This Fashinoista’s knitted earmuffs can easily be found or even made. What I think is really cool about having your own handmade earmuffs is that not only can you make it based on your own preference, but no one else will have one like yours. If your not big into arts and crafts or don’t have the time or patience, Etsy is a great place to find knitted accessories that are handmade and one of a kind. Try to keep in mind when searching or creating your own earmuffs it should accent your winter coat. This Fashionista did a good job keeping her pale pink, wool earmuffs as neutral as possible to match the rest of her winter outerwear. Although this Fashionista is wearing knitted earmuffs, keep in mind fur earmuffs are just as cute and trendy. Fur has been trending since last winter and there is nothing better than accenting a coat in the animal print fur you like so much. Why not have a combination of both? The more the merrier.

Keep in mind that if your earmuffs are the centerpiece of your ensemble there is nothing wrong with creating a hairdo that well represents the wool ensemble rocked around your head. Try loose and wavy curls or a ballerina bun that shows off that handcrafted piece of art you like so much.

Spotted:  Alexander Wang had a line filled with fur coated earmuffs in his fall 2011 collection.
