Winter Fashion Accessories For Women
It’s not necessary to buy a whole new wardrobe when the temperature drops and it’s been cold here lately! Investing in the right winter fashion accessories that fit your style and budget can help you create sophisticated outfits without breaking the bank.
Adding accessories to your wardrobe is like adding a little dose of inspiration to your daily routine.
Silk scarves in rich hues, leather gloves, a chic belt, the perfect bag… They spark the fashion inspiration I need when getting dressed in the morning and this simple act has the power to put me in a great mood for the whole day!
You can revamp your winter wardrobe with some exquisite accessories that are both elegant and practical.
Let’s dive into some lovely items to introduce to your wardrobe so you can look your best during the winter months.
Here are some of my favorite picks:
Winter Fashion Accessories For Women Over 50+
By now, you know I like to stick to neutrals. Most of my daily outfits are white, black, navy, and different shades of greys and some earthy beiges. To add a little fun and a bit of that je ne sais quoi element to my outfit, I wave in a bit of color to my ensembles through accessories.
Silk scarves are my usual go-to, like this stripe oblong from Chico’s in red and navy. I love how versatile a simple silk scarf can be! There are endless ways to tie them, creating a completely unique look.
An elegant pair of gloves can make any winter outfit glamorous! For something more luxe and appropriate for a formal event or night out, these leather gloves are my ultimate favorites.
These are soft and durable, have a slight stretch, making them comfortable and most importantly, they’re just stunning! They really make you stand out.
These black quilted ones are just as sophisticated, albeit a bit more practical for everyday use. The quilted fabric keeps you warm while the fabric covering the fingers is made tech-friendly.
For a more casual option, go for this knitted set that comes with a hat, a circle scarf, and a pom-pom hat. Likewise, we can’t forget about mitten gloves!
These are by far the best ones. It’s a convertible design so you can use your fingers when necessary!
Cold Weather Winter Accessories For Women
I know many of my readers live in places with far harsher weather conditions, so I’ve included some heavy-duty accessories for you! Practicality wins over style most of the time when we are facing freezing temperatures and that’s perfectly acceptable. But, there are some options to make everyday outfits chic without sacrificing comfort.
These waterproof snow boots, for example, are the ultimate heavy-duty shoe to face the snow thanks to their Thinsulate and waterproof materials. But, the collared fur detailing and color combo is uber chic and will help elevate any outfit.
Another option is this sophisticated pair by Columbia. Opt for this one if you prefer something just as elegant but a bit more low-key.
If you only buy one thing this winter, make sure it’s this hat, scarf, and gloves set! You’ll be able to mix and match the pieces and use them in different outfits. I love this off-white set and this grey one.
Winter Fashion Accessories: Ruanas, Wraps & Blanket Scarves
A pashmina is a great way to add warmth without adding the bulk of a thicker wool scarf.
There are many on the market that offer different colors, patterns, and textures. For me, though, the best ones are on the lightweight side (I live in Florida, after all). I love something classic like this black and white one or something bolder, like this colorful plaid one. They have that effortless vibe, are neutral with a little color sprinkled in, and are big enough to wear as a shawl. A timeless staple we should all have in our closets!
From casual to dressy, a blanket scarf is never not needed! It can really boost any outfit and arms you up with a soft, snuggly layer. Pair it with leggings, a long sweater, boots, and voilá! The perfect effortlessly chic outfit for running errands around town.
I love my blanket scarves to have at least three colors running through them. This gives a pop of color to my always neutral outfits and it also makes it a more versatile piece, as it will match with pretty much anything.
My favorite this season? This lovely one that has cashmere-like fabric and a stunning selection of colors and patterns to choose from.
If you love a more classic look, this oversized cashmere scarf is another stunning choice!
Amp up your winter look with a ruana! This wrap-meets-cape piece is comfy and casual, yet has a sophisticated element that makes it suitable for more formal occasions as well.
For those who like wearing lighter colors in the winter, this gorgeous gray ruana wrap with a light pink color running through is a beautiful choice.
When going over the best winter fashion accessories for women, I can’t forget to mention thermal clothes. Wearing the first layer of thermal clothes is incredibly important to feel warm and comfortable during the day and avoid thicker layers of clothing. I highly recommend you invest in some quality thermal underwear and thermal socks! I swear by this set of thermal underwear. Similarly, I have quite a few pairs of socks and by far, this is my favorite pair. They’re not too bulky, and are incredibly soft and comfy!
If you’re going to be out in the cold for a long or live in a state where winters are harsh, I recommend opting for something more heavy-duty ready, such as these wool-lined thermal socks. While they are lightweight and breathable, they are equipped with insulation technology.
These items are my must-have for staying warm while staying chic during the winter!
I hope you enjoyed my selection of winter fashion accessories and find them useful. How are you preparing your wardrobe for winter? Let me know in the comments!
