Up your accessories game with these top winter trends


Up your accessories game with these top winter trends

What's your favourite thing about winter? Hot Milo every night? Cosy nights in front of the fire while it storms outside? Skipping the gym for a snuggly sleep-in? For us, the best part about winter is the fashion. Or more specifically, the coats, boots, hats and scarves. We're guessing that most of you are with us! By the time winter comes around, we are more than ready to send our denim shorts to the back of the wardrobe, and reintroduce ourselves to the winter fashion and accessories we once had on high rotation.

If you're looking to upgrade your style game before the weather gets colder, we suggest investing in these emerging accessory trends. They scream winter, and can catapult any of your favourite outfits straight into AW18.

What's winter without boots?
Here are just a few of our absolute favourite boot trends: white, metallics, suede over the knee, bright reds, sock boots and velvet. Not a boot gal? Try feather and fringing embellishments, or designer-inspired points with fabric bows.

Bags in winter are a whole different ballgame
Think sheep's wool, faux croc print and heavy chain embellishments in deep jewel tones or classic warm shades! Bonus points for the season's key shapes - saddle, bucket, crossbody and belt bags.
