With the past couple of winters disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic, it’s likely that many people haven’t properly invested in their winter wardrobe and accessory lines for some time. With fewer people to see in 2020 and 2021, many people simply opted for loungewear rather than investing in winter wear that they’d rarely actually use. This winter is different, though – an opportunity for you to spread your wings and strut the city this winter. Here are five of the essential accessories you’ll want to bring with you.
On the cosmetics front, some classic styles can match perfectly with colder months. For one, the colder and drier air requires a tightening up of your skin regime, ensuring that your skin is well moisturized before heading out. On the make-up front, opt for darker winter eyeshadow and richer colors for your lips so that you stand out amid the grey and white of the winter backdrop.
Next up are the shoes and boots that you’ll be taking out and about with you. Thankfully, the style has come together with function in the past couple of years to make some shoes that are highly practical and look extremely fashionable. Take the high-soled boot, for instance, which you can purchase in an ankle-end format or a strap-up style that reaches your shin. These boots keep your toes out of the winter slush, raise you a couple of inches above the crowd, and also look sleek and stylish for the entire winter.
Winters are by no means only gray and miserable affairs, though. There are dozens of sparkling sunny days, especially towards the end of autumn and the beginning of spring, which can dazzle you in the streets. Here, you want your very own set of winter sunglasses that match your winter clothing. That might mean purchasing a lighter pair with darker shades or reflective sunglasses if you’re a regular on the ski slopes.
Gloves and mittens come in all shapes and sizes, but they all, until recently, had a fundamental flaw. In an era with so many touchscreen devices, a glove simply doesn’t cut it. Having to take off your glove every time you make a call can be impossibly frustrating, persuading you to simply leave them at home. However, there are now gloves that transmit the heat of your fingertips to the outside of the glove itself, which activates smartphone touchscreens. Browse and chat in comfort with these of-the-era gloves.
Finally, you shouldn’t go without a hat in the winter months. Not only does it keep your ears warm, where a high percentage of your body heat is lost in the colder months, but a hat will also keep your hair in one place, undisturbed by the wind when you’re out and about. Find a hat that you can match with your clothing in order to look super stylish on the streets this winter.
These tips will help you assemble your wardrobe for a winter of style and comfort in the coming months.
