No doubt with temperatures dropping, plenty of us have been keen to find the perfect winter coat, some lush warm fabrics and chic essential base layers.

As we're all aware, to create the perfect capsule wardrobe, a little va-va-voom is required, so let's take a peek at some essential winter accessories to complete this season's closet.

1. Nordic Neutrals

With work and home life now somewhat intertwined, tonal dressing is perfect to get you from the wee hours of the morning to dinner at night. Opt for creamy-coloured knits, tan or cedar ribbed dresses, beige coats and toffee coloured trousers. Layer and pair with your everyday sneakers and you're good to go.

2. Diamond studs


While runways team with layered gold necklaces we can’t help but sense there’s nothing quite like an exceptional, forever-piece to really have us feel a million dollars — we’re talking diamond studs.

One of the most crucial pieces to have in your wardrobe this winter is a pair of sparkling diamond stud earrings — particularly ones that are ethically sourced.


Not only is this earring style extremely versatile, but its minimalist vibe is particularly on-trend at the moment. Pair them with everything from an office pantsuit to a girls’ night little black dress.


Our only advice when it comes to this must-have piece of jewellery is to make sure they’re made with 100 per cent conflict-free diamonds. The mined diamond industry is one of the most unethical out there and we’re in full support of the companies offering their customers truly eco-conscious stones.

3. Primary Hued Handbags

Think vibrant colours, satin clutches and maybe even a hint of fringe! Opt for medium size if you're thinking for every day and have fun with it. On the runways, we spotted the likes of brightly coloured and strapless handbags, chunky chain handles, plus warm and quilted crossbody bags.

4. Show-stoppingly Square Wear

Eye-wear that is.

Large dark or neutral coloured sunglasses add elegance, pizazz and a hint of Jackie-O discretion. All over the fashion runways for the winter season were angular or rectangular sunnies too. By all means, opt for black this winter, although we're quite sure this is a trend that's sure to last well into the summer months and beyond, so why not go with flamboyant pink if that's what tickles your fancy?

5. Glossy Ecru Boots

Bone, ivory, white and ecru coloured boots are all the rage this season. With these, ensure a little heel to keep you standing tall in the coming months and if you're not in the mood to feel so dressed up, rest assured a chunky boot, even a chunky welly is en vogue.
