Accessories Access: Affordable & Cute Cold Weather Must-Haves!

Baby, it’s cold outside, which means that you better bundle up in style! That includes hats, headwraps, scarves, & gloves when facing the brutal change in temperature. Not to mention that for Cyber Monday, there are plenty of great buys to help solve your holiday gift giving dilemma, & why not treat a loved one to something cozy & chic like a pom pomp beanie or luxe infinity scarf? Here in the Northeast, it’s been windy & chilly, which means that I’m not leaving the house without layers of elegant extras that won’t add too much frompy bulk. However, as an avid collector of scarves, I’ve found that when it comes to cold weather accessories, there’s such a variety in colors & textures to create an interesting & stylish outerwear look to play with how you style your go-to winter coat.

The Stylish Five: Cute Cold Weather Accessories ($25 & Under)!

Even though this weekend’s weather had me fooled into thinking that it was August, I’m loving all of the new cold weather accessories in stores.  Of course you have your choice of scarves, hats, gloves, & earmuffs, but these are some of my favorites to kick off the season! For $25 & under, take a look at some of the staple pieces that you can enjoy all season long!

For anyone looking to protect your hair from the upcoming harsh weather, take a cue from Parisian chic style with this beret ($5.95) from H&M.  It’s available in gray, camel, & black, which means that it’s the perfect neutral to any peacoat or trench.  Also at the Swedish retailer, you can have 100% leather gloves ($24.95) in rich golden brown or black.  They’re lined & available in sizes small to large.

However, if you’re a knit-lover, take a look at the playful, taupe cable knit pom pom scarf ($16.94) from Old Navy.  In case you want to show off a pop of color in your cold weather accessories, this heavy, snow-bunny-inspired scarf is also sold in red.  You can protect your arms with fingerless gloves ($7.80) in gray, oatmeal, or fuchsia, sold @Forever 21.  Your fingers will be available to text your friends or play your favorite tunes on your iPod!

Lastly, my favorite of all of these pieces is the knit flower headwrap ($7.99) in berry from Payless.  They’re currently marked down from $9.99 & also sold in black & white.  And now why I love this… in January, I spent some time in Florence, Italy.  Of course most people don’t vacation in the winter to winter locations, but I had the amazing opportunity to discover some incredible style, including a knit headwrap.  It always takes a year for the European trends to make their way stateside, so I’m ahead of the game! Now, headwraps are all the rage & this adorable one is a perfect example of that! In addition to taking place of a cute headband, I love that this causes a lot less static in my hair as opposed to a knit hat!
