When it comes to winter, sometimes expressing ourselves through style can be a bit harder because we’re bundled up in coats and feeling hidden under a lot of layers. This is when your finishing touches make all the difference – your accessories, boots and coat are the perfect pieces to share your style with the world.

You lose a lot of warmth through your head, so hat is an obvious choice to keep you warm, right? One thing I hear all the time is “but hats don’t suit me” however, personal experience has taught me that finding the right style of hat for you can be a game changer!
Nothing beats a cosy scarf when it’s chilly – the bigger and chunkier the better. This is also an easy way to add a touch of colour into your outfit if you’re over the black on black of NZ winter style.
A nice warm jacket is essential when it’s cold. These three styles are very popular at the moment – puffer jackets (either the vest version or one with sleeves, depending on where you are), longline military style coats and teddy bear jackets.
If you wear skirts or dresses in winter, you’ll know the importance of a good pair of tights. Whether you go for something bright and colourful or keep it classic, tights are a great way of adding a bit of extra style while keeping you toasty.
When it comes to winter boots, there’s a pretty bit variety to choose from. A lace-up ankle boot and a chelsea boot are two styles that have a fair bit of flexibility when it comes to fit around the ankle, so if you often find it difficult to get boots that fit your ankle/calf these are good go to styles. If you’re not feeling the boots, go for a really stylish sneaker – these ones from Kathryn Wilson are super fun.
