The Coolest: accessories to beat the cold
What sustainable fashion has to offer right now
As much I love living in area where winter feels like a Dutch Indian summer I do miss the joy of cold weather styling. Especially since I decided to revive my winter wardrobe with pops of colour, which ended my monochrome era and resulted in a collection of fun, bright coloured winter-proof accessories.
But today, planning my trip to The Netherlands, I just couldn’t stop myself from surfing the web. So here it is, the coollest and brightest winter accessories sustainable fashion has to offer right now.
….Knee high wool stirrup legwarmers I can’t wait to wear over my loafers. A bubblegum coloured fuzzy wool head piece (could this be the new balaclava)….
Is it legit to just buy something for only one week of winter wardrobe styling?
