ALL IN THE DETAILS: Chic Winter Accessories

On those bitter cold mornings, it can be very tempting to pull on a fuzzy sweatshirt and save fashionable choices for sunnier days. Believe me, I know that those snowy treks across campus can be brutal in the dead of winter. Nonetheless, there are still chic ways to accessorize your outfits to be both fashionable and practical in the winter weather.

As you can see, this Fashionista’s style choices exemplify the perfect winter accessories that are both warm and stylish. The key to emulating her outfit starts with the perfect base layer. A soft, chunky wool sweater will keep you so warm that you won’t even mind getting out from under your covers in the morning—plus it looks way more put together than a sweatshirt. Then, she pairs her cream colored sweater with olive green corduroy pants. Cords are warmer than jeans and that pop of green adds a fun color to an otherwise neutral color scheme.

Needless to say, the right outerwear is crucial in winter weather—and it’s the perfect opportunity to embrace unique accessories. This Fashionista tops off her classic black down coat with an adorable beige beanie that features a trendy faux-fur pom pom. Combined with a neutral scarf that can be wrapped multiple times for optimal warmth, her outfit is equally practical and fashionable. You may think sunglasses are only for summer, but actually, they’re a great way to protect your face from the wind, as well as, block harsh UV rays reflecting on the snow. A cool, reflective pair of sunglasses is the finishing touch for this winter outfit.

So, the next time your weather app displays frigid temperatures, don’t repine! With these wintry accessories, the cold weather provides yet another opportunity to show off your fashion prowess.

How To: Layering and textures are easy and the perfect way to embrace winter accessories. Simply top off your favorite chunky sweater with a scarf and hat. You’ll feel chic, cozy (and most importantly) toasty warm on even the coldest winter days!
