Winter Warmers you can't do without

So this is a guest post that I hope you will enjoy! Cherrie has written it and it focuses on higher end products which you won't see much of on my blog - from me - because I don't have that kind of money (unfortunately!). If you're like me we can still dream can't we? Enjoy!

The chilly winter weather means that warm outerwear is essential at this time of year. Accessories that keep you cosy whilst looking stylish should be top of every girls’ list, yet this is also the time to have fun with fashion: the Christmas season is perhaps the only time when the odd novelty item is permitted! 

The basis of your look though, should ooze chic, and what better way to achieve this than with designer labels? For unique pieces head to Avenue 32, an online store featuring a selection of up-and-coming and established names. Animal prints seem never to go out of fashion, and this scarf by Lara Bohinc is a great way to show off the trend. This artisan number is not too bulky, meaning it will be a great transitional piece as the New Year brings with it the changing seasons.
A snug hat is the perfect way to keep warm and will help protect hair from any snowfall we might experience too. Look for a hat which keeps your ears warm, like this fur beanie by Hockley. The supple material can be pulled down around the ears, and sits elegantly on the head, whilst adding a bit of fun to a look with its traditional bobble feature. The icy green colour is winter-appropriate and would look fab matched with a handbag in a similar minty tone.
Those looking to work more humour into their style won’t go far wrong with this cute fox scarf, by Donna Wilson. Resembling a fox pelt, this fun animal-friendly number is created from 100% lambswool and knitted in Scotland. Wrapping yourself in this cosy scarf each morning is sure to bring a smile to your face, and whilst the grey version keeps things low-key, the bright red alternative is sure to turn heads.
Trying to text and email on the go can be an impossible task with freezing fingers, so invest in some high quality gloves this season. Those which keep hands toasty and also allow for movement are best, so look for slim-fitting pairs in supple fabrics. Traditional Brit brand Dents still reign supreme in the glove department, as shown by this leopard print pair. Lined with luxurious silk, these leather gloves allow for easy texting and guarantee hands are protected from the weather
Don’t neglect your pins when you step out to face the cold and, if not in jeans or trousers, make sure you invest in a thick pair of tights. Established name Falke are the go-to brand for hosiery with a range of patterned and plain pairs which can be worn time and again. These soft merino tights are crafted from a merino wool blend, so feel super soft against the skin and have a subtle stretch. Although available in other colours, we love the red-hued Barolo pair, which look appropriately festive without straying into Christmas elf territory!

Brighten up your look, stay stylish and keep cosy with these essential winter warmers.

I love the scarf and that hat looks ridiculously warm and cosy! Let me know what you think of Cherrie's designer post and if you would splash the cash on any of these little beauts.
