Let’s face it – Canadian winters can be harsh. When it comes to winter dressing, it’s easy to fall into a pattern of chunky sweaters and jeans on a daily basis. While there’s nothing wrong with a comfy casual look, it can be nice to look for standout pieces that will add some personality to a cold-weather look. To combat the winter blues, here are 5 standout accessory pieces to create Insta-worthy winter outfits.
Wool Daisy Beret
Taking inspiration from the runways and street style alike, a fun beret can brighten up any winter outfit. This one from Urban Outfitters is embellished with daisies for added fun. With this chic beret, you’ll feel like spring is on is way in no time, even if it’s still -15°C outside.
Animal Print Ankle Boots
A classic animal print will never go out of style, so why not pick up a pair of booties that can be worn year-round? This versatile Zara pair would look equally great with a pair of dark jeans and a basic white tee as it would with a little black dress and an evening coat.
If you’re a fan of the warmth of a puffer coat but not the bulk that comes along with it, this is the perfect scarf for you. Hot pink adds just the right pop of colour to brighten up any winter outfit while keeping you warm and toasty at even the coldest temperatures.
Fringed Flower Earrings
Statement earrings have been getting a lot of attention the past few seasons, and this trend is still going strong through 2018. More is definitely more with this pair of fringed earrings, so adding them to a simple black outfit is all that’s needed to amp up any winter look.
Rope Jungle Backpack
A practical choice for anyone who carries a lot in their purse of choice, this backpack from Acne will be your new go-to accessory. A winter white makes a bold statement, along with the rope details and chunky zippered hardware.
