We generally associate winter fashion with a lot of grey, black and tan. But just because the weather is dull doesn’t mean your winter outfits have to be! 

You can add colour to your drab winter wardrobe with these 7 essentials items, without breaking the budget of course (you do have those million christmas presents to buy after all).

Tote

You carry a bag everywhere so why not make it a statement piece? Totes are ideal for Winter because all of the little extra you have to carry, gloves, toque, cough drops, tissues…Ugh!!

Scarf

Obviously an important winter staple, its going to get cold and you’ll be wearing one every day so make it cute! If you don’t have the funds to buy a new winter coat this season dress up your old one with a brand new brightly coloured scarf.

Boots

Boots were made for walking and looking fabulous while you’re at it. We all have a tonne of grey, black and maybe even tan boots in our wardrobe so this year mix it up with some colour. Those sidewalks can be slippery so a sensible boot with a nice sturdy heal is a great option OR go sky high stiletto and Uber everywhere! Treat Yo Self!

Tights

Down with pants! At least until its minus 40 then please wear pants otherwise we are in big trouble. 

If you want to still wear a cute dress to the office Christmas party pair it with some brightly coloured or patterned tights or alternatively get year round use of your favourite ripped jeans by wearing some brightly coloured tights underneath for a pop of colour!
