No matter how fabulous your winter coat is, it can get a little boring to wear the same outerwear every day for months on end. That’s where the importance of having an array of hats, scarves and gloves comes in. Whether you’re into beanies, buckets or balaclavas, the best head-toppers of the season will keep you chic and comfortable, whether there’s a light breeze or you’re dealing with sub-zero temperatures. Our favorite scarves range from bright, cheerful snoods by JW Anderson to skinny stripes by the Elder Statesman. And we’ve got your phalanges covered with gloves and mittens in all shapes and sizes, from rugged and technical to sleek and classic. Here, our favorite winter accessories to jazz up your basic everyday outerwear.
