Cold Weather Accessories to Create Stylish Winter Looks
For the most part, my clients all fall into a similar category. Most are professional women living a life that you can probably relate to. So imagine how thrown course I was when I worked with a client who lives in a rural part of Scotland, notorious for its inclement weather, and works on a salmon farm. Because of this, being warm is priority number one. It gets so cold that she often buys clothing too large so she can wear multiple layers.

With function clearly trumping style, this client and I spoke at length about ways she can infuse some of her personality and style into her cold (more like severely freezing) weather wardrobe. While we discussed some clothing options, one thing I said to her was, "If I were you, I'd start playing with fun cold weather accessories options." Clearly, she needs to think about hats, gloves and scarves, why not make them interesting and something she loves to wear?

Few of us can relate to the lifestyle this client lives. However, the longer we spoke, the more I realized I can relate to her. Living in New York in the winter isn't much different, style-wise not temperature-wise, than my client. It may not get nearly as cold or inclement as it does where she lives, but New Yorkers spend a lot of time outdoors walking around and the need for cold weather accessories is pretty great.

Being a knitter I'm obsessed with all the hats that are so trendy right now. I have knit a bunch of hats, scarves and mittens this year and if I had more than two hands and didn't take on a bunch of other more complicated projects I'd be knitting more. I seriously examine hats I see people wearing and think about how I can make them myself.

Here are just a few I knit this year. Some I can't show because they are going to be holiday gifts.

Anyway, back to cold weather accessories that you can actually purchase in a store because I know not everyone has the time or inclination to knit, after recommending that my client start playing with wearing some fun hat, gloves and scarves combos, I decided to put some fun combinations together for inspiration. Instead of shopping for some predictable sets or boring colors, check out what I created.

Not all hats, scarves and gloves need to be knit. I love a beret as clearly evidenced by the one I knit for myself.
