You won’t get the winter blues with these accessories — they’re so cute you’ll want to go out in the cold just so you can wear them.
Winter is a dreaded time for a lot of people, but it’s actually one of my favorite parts of the year because I think the clothes and accessories just become much more fun. I mean, hello, knit things in pretty colors just scream winter wonderland.
Get out your list of what you’re getting people (or getting yourself), and let’s get to shopping!
Picro Selene Fleece Sweater
If I had to pick my favorite sweater I’ve included in this article, this one would be it. I’m a sucker for Fair Isle, and I love the twist on the typical colors in this one. It feels perfect for anything from a day out skiing to getting what you need at the grocery store to making Christmas dinner. (Anthropologie, $168.)
Classic Cable Knit Sweater
A cable knit sweater is so classic you just can’t go wrong. But I love the twist J.Crew did on it with the subtle flower detailing. The 3-D take on the classic sweater is so pretty, you’re bound to get compliments. Not to mention it comes in 5 colors! (J. Crew, $128)
It’s everyone’s favorite animal coming to you in sweater form! Penguins, so cute right? I love this because it has that special detail while still being minimalistic overall. (Loft, $69.50)
Fair Isle Sweater
Fabulous Fair Isle strikes again! This is a more budget-friendly version of the Anthropologie Fair Isle sweater. There are a few different colors to choose from. (My personal favorite is the neutral option.) (Old Navy, $44.99)
You can find a classic turtleneck pretty much anywhere. Even Target! You can get this style at many different price points, so no matter what, this basic will work for your budget. And if you go for a neutral color, there are almost endless ways to accessorize. (Target, $20)
Who doesn’t love a little colorblock? To dress it down, throw a jean jacket with sherpa lining over it; to dress it up, wear it with booties and a drop earring. (Roolee, $45)
Winter Floral Sweater
Who says florals are just for spring? This sweater’s use of the print is perfect for winter because the white and blues just scream winter wonderland. The bonus? It’s a perfect transitional piece to take you into spring. (Nest, $49)
This cardigan will give you all the cozy vibes whether you’re just laying around the house or using it to keep you warm while looking at Christmas lights. Style points if you use it in a wintry white monochromatic outfit. (Called To Surf, $44)
Pink Fingerless Mittens
Lost your mittens from last year? These have you covered. I can never get enough of pastel colors in mittens. I think it just looks so soft and feminine. And now you won’t be held back by numb hands in your snowball fight! (LOFT, $24.50)
Chic Leather Gloves
Embrace the chic feel of leather gloves! If you’re looking to splurge on a pair of gloves that will last, a good leather pair is the way to go. After all, they were approved by fashion icon Blair Waldorf in almost all her winter outfits. Blue hands be gone! (Neiman Marcus, $135)
I’m a sucker for a pompom. I think they make everything so much cuter! So if your slippers are worn out and it’s time for a new pair, maybe take a look at some of the various colors these cute knit ones come in. (Anthropologie, $38)
If those knit slippers weren’t really your thing, go for a pair of classic moccasins. They’ll keep your feet warm and are definitely a more traditional choice that’s perfect for all year round. (Lands End, $74.95)
Socks with Lace Trim
Little details are everything! These aren’t super out there as far as socks go, but they have that extra little feminine lace touch, perfect for peeking out of your bootie as you traipse through the snow (or in my case, the dry sidewalk #SoCalProblems.) (Roolee, $12)
Do you have Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen on your socks? If not, you’ll be needing to pick up a pair of these immediately. Let the Hallmark movie marathon commence. Now you can keep your feet warm in style! (Called To Surf, $4.50)
Stitch Pom Wool Beret
I’m not sure how I’ve resisted buying this so far. It’s so cute and not too pricey either! I love the detailing down the side and the pompom on top that adds a playful touch. Perfect for pretending you're spending your Noël à Paris! (Village Hat Shop, $24)
Colorful Striped Beanie
Bring on all the pink tones! Rather than a basic beanie, try something with fun colors and an ombrè design. It’ll keep your ears warm, but it could also just hide that it’s been a while since you washed your hair. (Shhh, I won’t tell.) (Loft, $34.50)
Embellished Ear Warmer
This accessory falls somewhere between a headband and a beanie. Spoiler alert, I’m all for it. And the bedazzled detail just adds that extra special touch. Totally Instagrammable! (Anthropologie, $68)
Looking for the scarf that’s perfect for getting all bundled up? Look no further. This scarf is extra long, which equals more surface area that you can wrap around yourself. So cozy! (ASOS, $19)
Not only will it keep your neck warm, but it will add that perfect holiday touch to any outfit you wear it with. Tartan is such a classic pattern and the ultimate scarf choice for a chic addition to any look. (J. Crew, $69.50)
