Winter Accessories Every Woman Should Own

January 21, 2015 Updated: April 23, 2016

Even though it may seem difficult to look fashionable throughout the winter because you have to focus on bundling up and layering in order to stay warm when the temperatures drop, there are plenty of ways to look great, whether you’re heading out for the day or evening.

Accessorizing your winter outfits is the best way to look fabulous no matter how frightful the weather is outside. Check out the winter accessories that every woman should own to figure out what you need to complete your winter wardrobe.

Matching Hat, Scarf, and Gloves

A matching set of winter accessories is always an adorable way to bring any winter look together and add a pop of colour or design to an otherwise plain winter coat. From vibrant colours to brighten up an otherwise drab season, to animal prints and classic patterns, there are a variety of options to choose from.

Opt for a matching set of gloves, scarf, and hat so that you can pull it all together before heading out. But rather than purchasing one matching set, get yourself a few so you can switch things up throughout the season without getting bored—and without wearing out one set too quickly from overuse.

A Great Pair of Sunglasses

The winter sun is just as harsh on your eyes as the summer sun, so don’t forget to grab your sunglasses before heading out the door. Choose from the latest and greatest styles, though, to make a real fashion statement, whether you prefer the classic cat eye look, perfectly round frames, or large sunglasses that you often see celebrities sporting. Stick with options like designer Oakleys and other designer sunglasses that are sure to last a long time and give you the protection your eyes need from the sun’s harsh UVA and UVB rays.

A Large Handbag

A large handbag is the perfect winter accessory because you can store and carry everything you need in it. While smaller totes and handbags are fine for the warmer months of the year, a solid handbag with plenty of room for everything from a travel umbrella for unexpected inclement weather, to a place to keep your matching hat, scarf, and gloves, is ideal. And, like your matching winter accessories, you can use your handbag as the perfect opportunity to add a pop of colour and texture to your look without much effort.

Eye-Catching Jewellery

Gold and silver winter jewellery is a great way to also add a pop of sparkle to an otherwise plain look, whether you’re wearing a sweater dress, layers, or a turtleneck to stay warm. So don’t forget to add a necklace, a pretty watch, and a pair of earrings or a bracelet to your look as well. 

When it comes to winter accessories, there are just a few that every woman should own. And one thing that most of these accessories have in common is the fact that they not only look good, but they also serve a purpose, whether that’s to keep you warm or to protect your eyes from the sun’s rays.
