Stylish Winter Accessories for Women

Written by: Niki Landry




Over Knee High Thigh-High Cotton Socks


Over The Knee Socks


If you are fortunate enough to live in a place with mild winters then skirts and dresses are still an outfit option throughout the season. Instead of bearing the discomfort of tummy pinching tights, buy a pair of thigh high socks. Layer over leggings, wear with booties, or peeking out the top of over the knee boots to keep your legs warm and your outfits sharp.

Cashmere Knit Long Fingerless Arm Warmers 


Elbow Length Gloves


With the rise in popularity of the poncho and cape, fashionable girls need a way to keep their hands and arms cozy without the help of a sleeve. In comes the long glove.

A set of knit gloves with an elongated cuff is sure to keep your hands warm and your outfit stylish. These gloves look great paired with bracelet length coats, under ponchos, or quarter length sweaters or tops.

Tired of plaid being the go to pattern for the colder months? Pick up a festive fair isle accessory. This wintery knit pattern beanie is a popular look for sweaters, but also work well on scarves, hats, and socks. They are a great way to add pattern, color, and interest and cozy up your outfits.

Kenneth Cole New York Kiera Fashion Sneaker


Mid Top Sneakers


Boots are everyone’s favorite cold weather shoe, but a mid top sneaker is a nice alternative to add an athletic option to your winter wardrobe. These suede kicks have fun accents in a soft material. Perfect for keeping your feet comfortable while shopping, lounging, or running errands.

Tassel Bag


Tassels and fringe are popular in jewelry and on hemlines, and they are a fun and festive addition to your winter look. It’s the perfect detail to bring texture to a solid or basic bag.

There are lots of tassel key chains and charms on the market to add to an existing bag. For a more streamlined purse, the bags above come with tassel included.

They also look great draped over your shoulders as a poncho, cape, or shawl.

Compass Rose Travel Packing Cubes


The Best Method to Pack for Winter


The most efficient way to organize a winter wardrobe is to utilize packing cubes. While I’ve tried many brands over the years, I decided to create my own version that will take your packing to the next level: the Compass Rose Travel Packing Cubes shown above!

The 4-Piece Set of Carryon Packing Cubes are sized to fit the exact width of a carry-on suitcase and they also have a unique color-coded and numbered organization system.
