With a cold front sweeping across the country, it’s time to start thinking about how to stay warm this winter! The thing we love most about winter is being able to break out snuggly accessories like winter hats, fuzzy slippers, scarves, and knit gloves. Here are 20 accessories you can cozy up with, without losing any style points.
