Your ultimate scarf and glove edit to shop right now

20th Nov 2018

In the midst of dreary days and cold showers, we’re talking gloves and scarves. While the winter warming duo serve a utilitarian purpose, layering up in cosy essentials can elevate any woman’s style.

Unlike coats and heavy boots, cold weather accessories are often an afterthought, yet are probably most important; letting your hands go commando is just asking them to fall off. While I do love a good tartan scarf, good quality fancy gloves can be hard to find and are typically more expensive. But many high-street retailers now offer many offbeat alternatives to the traditional leather glove at an affordable price.

So instead of leaving your neck bare and letting your hands get cold, cosy up on your chilly commute. I’ve sussed out some of this season’s most wanted winter warmers from bright yellow leathers and checkered tweed gloves to fabulous fluffy scarves and cashmere perfection. Shop now and quick, it’s only getting colder. Happy shopping.
