Beanie Baby

One of the simplest ways to stay warm this winter is with a cosy woolly beanie hat. Whether you choose to go for classic monochrome or a fun and funky highlighter bright, there’s a style for every taste. Cashmere styles may cost more but they’re an investment you’ll be grateful for when your forehead isn’t sweating. The good news is that cashmere doesn’t have to be expensive – high street favourites such as H&M have cashmere blends and Marks & Spencer cashmere is the secret of many fashion insiders. The biggest beanie trend? Logo tab styles – first seen at Ganni and Acne Studios, you’ll have seen both styles on your favourite influencers but don’t worry, there’s plenty of high street homages!

Turn up beanies are having a moment. Look for logo styles or bright colours

Glove Love

There’s nothing worse than chilly fingers and while gloves might mean you need to keep your wits about you to keep a full set, warm hands are worth it. From grown-up leather and fine wool gloves to kid-like mittens, smart phone-friendly and cool fingerless styles, your hands will thank you. If you’re going for a coat or jacket with cropped sleeves, look for elbow-length styles – Zara’s long leather gloves come in three different colours including an eye catching bright green!

Scarf Saviours

Snuggle down in a scarf this autumn – look for blanket scarf styles or those with extra length for that full wrap-around experience to keep you super toasty while you’re out and about. The great thing about scarves? They can also double as a face mask these days, which means one less item to throw in your bag to stay safe – but make sure to wash them regularly as bacteria can build up as you breathe into them.

Fun prints and brightly coloured scarves are a great way to add interest to your winter outfit
