TOP IT OFF WITH A HAT
While hats undoubtedly provide a practical purpose, the world has also enjoyed their beauty as a fashion accessory for years. In terms of transforming an outfit, a hat somehow has the ability take an ensemble from drab to fab and change how you feel about yourself. At times, selecting a suitable hat can be challenging but the right hat is the perfect accessory to add character to an outfit and express an air of confidence and individuality.

TEXTURE AND COLOUR PLAY
Winter provides even more opportunities to layer and have fun with accessories. Vests, scarves and beanies are throw-on-and-go additions that add warmth, texture and colour to your attire. Luxe knit fabrications and pops of bright colour are at the forefront of fashion this season so embrace this exciting trend and take delight in how the texture and colour of your accessories brighten up your day.
