ACCESSORIES REPORT: Not A Knitter? Not A Problem

Accessories Report

Guess what? We got yet another snow storm here in New Hampshire. It has been nearly impossible to leave our buildings and go do things around campus. When I watch people walk from class to class (on the days we don’t have curtailed operations) all I see is layers and some serious bundling up. It is just a sea of black knee-length jackets, black leggings and some extra-lining snow boots.

This Fashionista stood out because of her knitted infinity scarf. What made it even better is that her roommate knitted it herself. Now, I completely understand why most people can not seem to dip into their closets for something more creative, mostly because it snows every other day and is below ten degrees. Though pieces like cable knit scarfs and boot socks are what is going to make your outfit stand out.

I really like the basic colors represented in this Fashionista’s outfit. For black-on-black, throw some white in and neutral color boots and you really can not miss the mark. The scarf is an infinity scarf with a cable knit look; it honestly could be straight out of your grandmother’s knitting basket. Knitting is in, guys. I am not saying it has to be your next hobby, but knits make great accessories. What is even better is that you can buy cable knit scarves all over, such as Forever 21.

It does not have to stop at scarves. You can sport cable knit socks, gloves, sweaters and even sweater dresses! It is the comfy winter look that holds these winter outfits together. So either pick up a new hobby and knit yourself and all your friends some awesome pieces for next to no money, or go out on a shopping trip and pick up a few winter accessories that will go the extra mile the next time you step into the cold and snow.
