Winter is coming. Well, winter is basically here, and with that comes a slew of cold-weather accessories designed to protect you from the elements in style. This season, however, we’re looking for options that read more cheerful and trendy than drab and forgettable. Enter Verloop, a New York-based knitwear brand that is putting a contemporary spin on your grandma’s favorite pastime.

Working with a dedicated team of knitters (can we join?), Verloop crafts unique accessories that infuse traditional knits with unexpected details, materials, and techniques. This is not your typical K1P1 type of craftsmanship, ladies. Verloop is all about experimentation and innovation in the hopes of redefining knitwear for creative, modern customers. Just one look at this winning Polder Scarf ($50) with coordinating hat ($34) and gloves ($29) and you can spot the sartorial shift from crafty to refined. Inspired by Holland’s unique landscape, these color-blocked essentials are constructed seamlessly to give just the right amount of stretch, ensuring comfort and fit.

The Quilted Pom Hat ($29), shown here in dark blue and jade, features an all-over knit pattern and speckled pom that offers a much-needed bit of whimsy to your look as you slog through upcoming snowy days and frigid temps.

But coziness can come in many forms, none of which is more imperative than a selection of curl-up-and-forget-the-world-worthy home accents that will give you yet another excuse to stay in (as if we needed it). This Borders Colorblock Knit Throw ($98) in poppy and matching Stripe Pillow Cover ($45) are practically begging you to cancel your plans, open all the wine, and settle in for a Netflix binge.
