From hats and scarfs to boots and bags, this week’s Cheap and Chic is a round up of all the accessories you’ll need for the cooler months.
I’m forging new ground this winter and upping my accessories game to include pieces I’ve never worn before. I’m just an adventurer like that.
I’m done with umbrellas, it’s raincoats instead. Beanies are dead to me, I’ll only be wearing hats for head warmth. And for the first time ever I have bought a pair of gloves.
Here’s my list of the accoutrements that you need in your life.
1. Pastel trim clear plastic rain coat from Topshop.
My life has changed since I embraced raincoats. No more fighting with umbrellas flipped inside out by the wind. No more struggling to stuff a sodden mess into it’s case. I just slip into my handy raincoat and get around like it’s not even pouring. AND they add an extra layer of warmth. Winner.
2. Witchery fedora from David Jones.
This will keep your head just as warm as a beanie, but is much less ‘Hello, I am a 16-year-old wearing a beanie’. Kate Moss is one of my all-time favourite style icons, and she’s rarely seen without her trusty fedora… I’m happy to take her lead.
3. Marc by Marc Jacobs crosby quilt nylon cosmetic case from David Jones.
Yes, this is a makeup case, but I will be using it as a clutch. There is method to my madness – makeup cases are more durable, they are made to be around water (you can wipe them down!) and they’re also generally cheaper (meaning I can get a Marc Jacobs “clutch” for less than $60!).
4. Large check cape from French Connection.
Who in their right mind wouldn’t want to wear a blanket-like cape that warms you and looks good?! Get one in a neutral shade so you can throw it over everything.
