15 sassy cold weather accessories under €30

by Ellen Bird
15th Oct 2018

I’m all about autumnal crisp air, pumpkin spice (and everything nice), Netflix marathons and fluffy Penny’s pyjamas. Autumn is all about comfort, and it’s officially cold enough for beanies and fluffy everything and anything. But while rustic leaves may look cute, Ireland’s early morning commutes will have you sacrificing warmth for outdoor hardship almost too easily. So a collection of cute-yet-cosy (and practical) accessories is without-a-doubt a clever investment. What’s more, without a hefty price-tag, we’re going extra wild for some cosy new layers. From puffy scarves, leopard-print fuzzy hats, and quirky knits, your winter wardrobe will be both functional and chic, and most importantly, warm!

The fashion world has introduced some colourful alternatives to AW dressing. From Prabal Gurung’s pink blanket-like scarves, Chalayan fuzzy grey neckpieces, to Gucci’s slightly terrifying balaclava’s, high-fashion designers have raised the stakes, bringing unique winter accessories to our high-street stores. While tartan plaid scarves are a winter staple for good reason, double-up on the warmth factor by swapping yours for something extra oversized; you’ll feel like you’re burying your face in a blanket. What more could you want? Soft cashmere is, of course, a winter luxury, so swap your basic black gloves for a vibrant red pair made from this feel-good fabric.

So if your winter basics are lacking a bit shop these practical, pretty and totally chic accessories that will elevate any outfit (all under €30!)
