Canadian winters present the interesting dilemma of dressing to stay warm while looking fashionably cute, and this January has been no exception. Lucky for you, we’ve rounded up the best winter accessories that do both.
A Pair of Chic Yet Sturdy Boots
There’s no denying this: You need to keep your feet warm. This winter has witnessed a massive throwback to the Timberland brand, with their boots worn on just about everyone. Blundstone boots are another favourite. They’re easy to slip on and off, and they come in a variety of colours. If those don’t pique your interest, the PUMA Chelsea is a slick pair with a rubber exterior that’s perfect for trudging through slush.
A Pair of Leather Gloves
A good pair of leather gloves are both incredibly versatile and essential for keeping hands warm. Opt for a standard fit or try a pair of fur-lined ones. From basic to embellished, these gloves fit seamlessly into any winter wardrobe.
A Pom-Pom Hat
Hats are crucial for maintaining healthy hair this winter, and you’ve no doubt seen this style everywhere. Not only do they keep your head insanely warm—they’re incredibly comfy. From patterned beanies to colour-blocked fits, pom-pom hats are the “it” hat this winter season.
A Warm Scarf
Whether you’re into the blanket version or simple wraparound, a scarf is a necessary accessory for bundling up against the cold. This season introduces new fabrics, such as velvet and puffer, in addition to the popular wool garment. A scarf is a great way to keep your neck and face warm outside, in addition to being an impromptu extra layer if you work in a cold office.
A Fitted Parka
On colder winter days, the peacoat just won’t cut it. Stay warm in subzero temperatures with a long parka and fur-lined hood, where fitted versions lack the bulk of other winter coats for a stylish look. Whether you splurge on a Nobis or rock a TNA, the fashion-forward practicality of the fitted parka continues to rule the coat market.
