Aside from experiencing temperatures seemingly colder than Mars, we’re gearing up for a “weather bomb” (or bomb cyclone, if you prefer) that’s set to descend on the East Coast. Prepare yourselves accordingly! And if you haven’t already, bring in reinforcements by way of stylish cold-weather accessories that will make the cold feel a little less cruel. Because trust us: heading outside is half as bad when you have an arsenal of chic hats, scarves and gloves you actually want to put on. So, scroll down to see a few of the cold-weather accessories we’re coveting right now and get ready to show that wind chill who’s boss.
A stunning match for a coat in black, navy or grey, this plush scarf will add a sunny pop that’s guaranteed to brighten your mood on the murkiest of winter days. 29Secrets Pick: Club Monaco Zayra Scarf, $295.
Aside from featuring the signature ribbed detail seen on Sentaler’s celebrity-approved coats (oh hi, Meghan Markle!), this cozy scarf also supports a good cause, with a portion of the proceeds from each sale benefitting the SickKids Foundation in Toronto. 29Secrets Pick: Sentaler Adult Ribbed Scarf, $245.
Though the word “mittens” might conjure up memories of knitted versions on a string, these fur-trim leather gloves are most definitely made for grown-ups. Lined with a thermal cashmere-blend wool, they’ll also keep your hands warm while complementing your winter coats. 29Secrets Pick: Rudsak Glory Mittens, $125.
Pom-adorned hats are officially as ubiquitous as fur-trimmed parkas and Starbucks cups, and yet they’re somehow still too cute to pass up. For a slightly different take on the fuzzy-topped toque, try a multi-coloured version that’ll add a much-needed hint of colour to your neutral-toned, cold-weather attire. 29Secrets Pick: My Accessories Grey Beanie With Multi Coloured Pom at ASOS, $24.50.
A polka-dot glove is an easy way to add a playful touch to your daily commute. Better still, this pair features touch-sensitive tips that let you use your gadgets on the go without freezing your fingers off! 29Secrets Pick: Echo Dot Dot Dot Glove, $US45.
Isn’t it about time you bought a beret? All the cool girls are wearing them, and while it might not keep your head totally warm up against the arctic chill, you’ll look super-cute wearing it. Wear this one with a sleek wool coat or fuzzy topper for a fashion-forward winter look. 29Secrets Pick: Forever 21 In Your Dreams Wool Beret, $21.90.
And if you’re still in the market for a super-chic coat (because you can never have too many!), we’re loving this brilliant coral-pink number, also from Markle-approved Canadian brand Sentaler. This will perk up a grey day in no time. 29Secrets Pick: Sentaler Fitted Coat with Buttons and Fur Collar, Tourmaline Pink, $1,895.
