Winter Accessory Essentials

I was really looking forward to winter this year- big warm jumpers, a cute coat and darker make-up, but I forgot how cold it actually would be and now I just want spring to come around quickly! However, today I want to share with you my favourite accessories and things that I know I'll be wearing a lot in the coming months.

Boots: for most people, boots are a must have for winter to keep your feet snug. I love them because you can wear big fluffy socks inside and no one has to know. This year I'll be wearing these simple black chelsea boots which I got from eBay and this slightly heeled pair from River Island.

Chunky Necklace: I love chunky necklaces as they can easily be thrown on over a simple jumper and can just give your outfit a little bit of glamour. Both of these necklaces can add a big impact to an outfit and can make it look a bit more put-together.

Fur: faux, of course. I love to attach a fur collar to my leather jacket as it keeps me extra warm and can look quite glam. This brown one is from H&M and the burgundy came from Forever 21.

Gloves: I adore these gloves from River Island. These are a couple of years old now but they bring in new styles every year and are really great because you can have them as fingerless gloves or mittens- plus the face on them is so cute and people are always admiring them.

Scarves: of course, a scarf is an essential for winter, not only for keeping warm but also for being a great addition to an outfit. I feel like every fashion blogger has a tartan scarf at the moment but they are just so on trend right now is this big one keeps me very warm. I also love my burgundy snood from Topshop because I can just throw it on with anything and it's very snuggly.

Hats: I've always loved hats and winter is the best time to wear them. This monochrome bobble hat is from Primark and it really warm. But for something a little more fun I picked up these other two hats from eBay- they have the cutest cat ears in them and come in a huge range of colours.

Dark Lipsticks: most beauty bloggers are raving about dark lipsticks at the moment. I love to wear them with a slick of black eyeliner and a matte complexion. My favourites are 127 'Mulberry' by GOSH, L'oreal Glam Shine in 'Milady' and Sephora's 23 'Crush'.

Have you got any essentials for this time of year?
