10 outfit extras, for extra outfit potential
By Elizabeth Odey, 21 May 2017
Winter is the ultimate season for style hacking. A) it’s way cheaper than summer, and B) it’s way simple. How? Once you’ve got your jumper, jeans and jacket essentials down pat, stock up on a couple of trusty (yet trendy) accessories to keep in tight rotation – and you’ve just won winter. These 10 should do the trick…
1. Under wraps
An oversized scarf is your low-key solution to high-fashion winter styling. Grab, wrap, and go. Nailed it.
2. Sock it to ‘em
Let’s all take a minute to thank the fashion gods for creating the mesh sock. The easiest accessory to incorporate, this sports-tipped style gives your look that little bit extra.
3. Geek chic
Smarten up your casual wear in the most literal way, with a pair of clear lens glasses. Watch your fashion IQ soar.
4. Meet in the middle
We’ve talked about corset belts before, and we’ll talk about them again. The trend is here to stay, and it’s here to boost any blouse to next-level status.
5. Hot topper
The beanie is the quintessential winter accessory. Give the look a little new-season love with a pop of pink and a cheeky sports stripe.
6. Flower power
Winter florals give a feminine spin to the paisley bandana. Style around your neck, head or handbag for an easy outfit upgrade. Talk about an accessory necessity.
7. Gold member
The 80s called - and they want their earrings back. Well, maybe if they didn’t look so mega with your chunky winter knit, you’d consider it.
8. Bags of fun
Plisse pleats and millennial pink? Whether you’re heading for the gym, the lecture hall or for post-work pints, this drawstring backpack is coming with.
9. Cap it off
Sports caps hold a special place in our hearts year-round. Give the look a winter refresh with the colour of the moment, burgundy.
10. Scrunch up your life
Hello scrunchie, how we’ve missed you. But how do you give this 90s classic a new-season edge? Make it in denim, obvs.
