Smarter Style: 5 Cold Weather Accessories

Posted by   + Show Post

Half the country is in a major deep freeze right now...I walked outside tonight and thought "Huh, it's warming up" and it was 18 degrees. Even if you don't usually bother with gloves, hat, etc. in this weather, it's absolutely necessary even if you're just going from house to car to office and back. Here's a rundown of five cute choices that will keep you cozy and chic.

This cute popcorn knit hat is warm, soft, and comes in colors to go with any coat. (KMart, $3.99).


These Stormy Kromer hats are experiencing a hipster resurgence, but they are well-made here in my home state of Michigan, practical (it's designed not to blow off and has a pull-down earband), and even cute with these fabric flowers. (Stormy Kromer, $39.99).


If I could afford it, I'd wear this Kate Spade scarf anywhere, anytime, cold or not. (Nordstrom, $149).


Tech gloves usually look about as dorky as your smartphone is cool, but these long, gathered ones are something I'd wear even if they weren't phone-friendly...and they'll keep your arms protected from big gusts. (Nordstrom, $24.00)


This beanie is boho-cute with a bit of sophistication, and the aqua color really stands out. (Moosejaw Mountaineering, $14.99)



What's your favorite cold-weather accessory?

I don't usually wear anything.  On the really cold days, I'll wear my leather gloves and put my hood up while I'm outside.

I have fingerless gloves with the flap over that makes them mittens. I love them.

Thankfully it doesn't get too cold here. I look silly in hats. I have some gloves that I sometimes wear.
