Keep warm in style. Just because wintry temperatures call for thick layers of clothing and sturdy boots doesn’t mean that fashionistas have to forgo exciting, eye-catching accessories. “Cool” bags, belts and boots will add pizazz to any December outfit. These winter accessories are must-haves!
Bags, bags, bags
Wintry showers or flurries of snow leave the transparent bags by Staud (available at Amicis Deuxieme and very popular right now) completely unfazed. With their XXL weave, the bags by Bottega Veneta have likewise become a cult object. Belt bags worn over thick jackets are also en vogue, and any winter outfit is immediately upgraded with the furry version by Louis Vuitton. The same can be said of Emporio Armani’s bag with a purse clasp.
When it comes to footwear, stilettos often have to be replaced with knee or ankle boots at this time of year. Fashionable versions can be found at Alexander McQueen – the lace-up variety – or at Prada, where they have an oversized tread to prevent you slipping during your winter walks.
Warm winter accessories
Winter accessories are best when they’re not just cute but also warm. The beanie by Givenchy (available at Amicis Deuxieme) and the two-tone scarf by Louis Vuitton are just the ticket. And even the simplest coat will turn heads when you add a belt by Etro.
Of course, at this time of year coats are a must. Click here for the best styles.
