The Coolest, Coziest Winter Accessories

by Christina Holevas

I find it rather challenging to look stylish in the winter. In the summertime, my most meticulously crafted outfits are on full display, but during the colder months, anything I’m wearing tends to be hidden under bulky layers. It can be tough to find a way to showcase your personality when you’re prioritizing warmth over style. All this said, a challenging weather situation can also provide ample opportunity to get creative with your wardrobe, particularly the bits and bobs that actually show when you’re wearing a heavy coat, like gloves, hats, scarves and socks. Winter accessories were actually a major focal point on the Fall 2021 runways, and designers certainly had a good time making them fun and interesting to wear. Here, we’ve rounded up some of the top picks that we plan to shop this season—for ourselves and as foolproof holiday gifts.
