When it comes to your accessories, your outfit is never really fully complete without them. But while accessories in other seasons may be purely decorative, for winter your accessories will be both practical AND stylish, keeping you warm while adding interest to your looks. Let’s take a look at some of the best winter accessories to elevate your winter outfits.

I’ve partnered with Nordstrom to bring you all the best winter accessories from their Nordstrom made range of brands.

Why you shouldn’t forget your winter accessories

While you may be considering how to stay cozy when the temperatures dip, there are plenty of reasons not to forget your winter accessories. All the options below are from Nordstrom Made brands.

Here are some good reasons why you may like to add winter accessories:

they Add color

Winter weather can be dreary so accessories are a great way to add a pop of color. You could, for example, choose a neutral gray or black coat and add color with a red scarf like the Nordstrom cashmere scarf (below).

winter accessories that Create warmth

Your accessories can be warm AND stylish. Add a scarf, hat and gloves to ensure you stay cozy. If you want to opt for the current trend of layering different shades of a neutral like cream and beige, you could try the knit cowl (below) and wear with a cream coat and sweater and tan boots.

It can be tricky to choose gifts for all your nearest and dearest, particularly if you don’t know their dress size. Accessories can be perfect – as everyone fits a scarf! And they’re easy to pack too if you are traveling to see loved ones during the holiday season.

Nordstrom has handily highlighted accessories that will arrive before Christmas so you can narrow your choices down if you’re gift shopping.

You could choose a pair of lined leather gloves like the pair below.
