Make sure they’re actually practical
Whilst we’re obsessed with the visual of barely-there, sheer tights and floppy bucket hats, is there any point wearing them if you’re still shivering and wet?
Check the fabric content
If you are sensitive to any fabrics, you need to check the label carefully—and we’re not just talking about knitwear. if you get the fabric wrong for your tights, you’ll spend the day sitting on a very itchy bottom.
Choose something you’ll wear next winter, too
Winter accessories can be expensive if you want to opt for more premium fabrics, such as cashmere and leather. Go for neutral colours to ensure you won’t tire of them year after year.
Take them for an in-house test-drive
It may sound silly, but you never know if they’re perfect until you’ve actually tried them on properly. Make sure you can still do things with your gloves on around the house, try the hat to make sure it’s not going to give you an insane headache by the end of the day and make sure a scarf won’t itch your neck or constantly smother your face in fluff.
So, now that you’re all clued up, shop our edit below to ensure you’ll be suitably (and stylishly) wrapped up this winter.
