Top 3 must-have winter accessories
Thursday 5 May 2022
It’s easy to overlook the importance of accessories in any outfit – and this goes double for when the mercury drops. Whether it’s brightening up a dark colour block or adding new textures to a layered look, winter accessories are a significant component of your outfit and shouldn’t be ignored.
Here are our top three picks for accessories this winter season.
Chelsea boots are the perfect blend of form and function. They’re elegant, reliable, and pair well with a wide range of bottoms for both casual and formal events. Our Chelsea boots are available in two different toe shapes – rounded or chiselled – to ensure a comfortable fit for all types of feet. Each pair also features elastic gussets and a convenient pull tab at the heel, so you won't have to mess around with laces.
We’ve also introduced two more boots to our classic collection this season: the Akman and the Damiano.
The Akman Chelsea boots are made from soft suede and feature a round toe shape with a lowered heel profile. Its earthy taupe colour easily complements dark and light bottoms, so they’ll quickly become your go-to weekend stompers.
The versatile Damiano Chelsea boots are crafted from buttery smooth leather and finished in a rich dark brown. Either dress them up with formal work attire or pair them with denim for a chic casual look.
Scarves aren’t just used to keep your neck warm; you can also use them in your outfit to add texture and colour.
Picking a scarf to complement your kit is key to achieving the look you’re going for. Choose brighter tones like tan and khaki green to lighten dark colour blocks, or opt for a stealthy, minimalistic vibe with black and navy.
If you’re looking to make a scarf your statement piece, we recommend playing around with different patterns and textures. Our Maddisen scarf champions this idea – its herringbone knit adds presence on top of plain jackets and coats, while its ribbed hem finish adds another layer of detail to your look.
Similarly to scarves, ties can add extra colour and texture without overwhelming your entire outfit.
The right tie can add visual depth and character to your outfit, especially when taking the fabric of your suit into account. If you’re hitting the town suited and booted, try adding a tie for some smart textural contrast.
A tie is also a great way to showcase your personality and flair. Choose a two-toned tie for an understated, slick look, or stand out from the crowd with a floral paisley design: your style, your way.
