SHARP Finds: 10 Best Winter Accessories

January has (finally) come to an end but don’t get too excited — we do live in Canada which means winter is far from over. Expect plenty of days that require a fair bit of bundling up over the next couple of months, but that’s not to say that we can’t get playful and/or colourful with our winter accessories. Far from it. The best way to add pops of colour and really pull an outfit together is to accessorize — especially when most of our outfits consist of bulky puffer jackets and multiple pairs of socks. Whether it be adding a funky hat, a pair of your coolest shades, or wrapping your most vibrant scarf around your neck, accessorizing is the easiest way to have a little more fun with your steez in the season of bulky clothes and frozen toes.
