Winter Warmers

The clocks have gone back, the nights are shorter and it’s officially time for winter warmers! When the weather gets colder, we all reach for at least one of the classic winter warmers – a scarf, a pair of gloves or a hat.

Furry, knitted, crocheted, or cotton, there are winter warmers to suit all styles, all tastes, and all degrees of bad weather.

Reports suggest we have a cold, cold winter on the way, so get those winter warmers stockpiled now, it seems like we’re going to need them!

Gloves are essential, not only for keeping those hands warm, but for protecting your hands from the harsh elements. Handcream first, then gloves. We love H&M’s fringed suede pair for evenings out, but you can’t beat a pair of woolly mitts for a winter walk. Fingerless gloves aren’t idea, but French Connection’s fur pair are too stylish to ignore.
