To deal with the increasingly cold winter weather, there are some items that you definitely have in your wardrobe. While many moan about the dark nights and bleak conditions, you can’t deny that winter is the ideal time for snuggly, soft, comfy clothing that just feels great to wear. Here are some winter warmer essentials:

Scarves – A thick woolly scarf is the perfect accessory for keeping the chill wind off your neck, chest and chin. Available in a huge range of colours, patterns and textures, a scarf is a must for any winter outfit.

Coat – There are so many designs to choose from, you’ll be spoiled for choice. Whether you need a waterproof jacket, a full down-filled puffer coat, a trench coat or a wool blend jacket, a selection of a few coats to survive any type of winter weather is highly recommended.

Gloves – Our extremities are often the first to really feel the bite of icy weather so keep your fingers toasty with a thick pair of woollen gloves.

Aran Sweaters – The ultimate in winter wear has to be the Aran sweater. Made for fishermen working in the brisk air of the Atlantic, this knitted woollen jumper can withstand extremes of both wet and cold making it the ideal accompaniment to any winter outfit.

Boots – A solid pair of boots with good tread will see you right through the hardest of winter weather. A pair of snow boots offers warmth and good grip, while a sturdy pair of walking boots should see you through ice and heavy downpours.
