Survive the winter with style this year with these five-must have winter accessories!
I’ll be honest, when winter rolls around I typically end up walking out the door every day with my hair up in a ponytail (because I didn’t want to get out of my warm bed) and a sweatshirt or jeans and a cardigan on. I’m lazy and the cold just makes me want to stop trying and bundle up. After a couple of calls with my life coach and my little sister for inspiration, I’m changing things up this year and getting ready to leave the house each morning, even if that just means taking another five minutes to get ready. The secret to getting ready in five minutes? These five must-have winter accessories that make it seem like I’m trying even when I’m really just adding an extra five minutes to my winter morning routine!
Five Must-Have Winter Accessories
#1 – Layers
Cardigans, leggings, sweatshirts, boots with wool socks, and jackets all make great fashion statements that also keep you warm. And don’t limit yourself to just dark colors because it’s winter, try bold colors or even white with an amazing pop of color on your lips with Burt’s Bees Lipstick or in your hair.
#2 – Gorgeous hair color
Winter is the time to try out that hair color you’ve been eyeing for a while. Whether it be going dark, going red, or mixing it up with some sort of sombre treatment, winter is the perfect time to do it.
#3 – Burt’s Bees Moisturizing Lipstick
One of the worst parts of winter is the dryness that comes with it. Dry legs, dry hair, dry lips, dry everything. It’s just a part of the season. Luckily Burt’s Bees knows all about the dry lips that winter brings and just released a brand new lipstick line that’s made with a formula including beeswax, moringa oil, and raspberry seed oil, specifically designed for keeping your lips moisturized for up to 8 hours, perfect for combatting dry lips all winter long!
Burt’s Bees new line of lipsticks comes in 14 different gorgeous colors everything from nude to light pink to a bright and bold red for a night out on the town. No matter your skin tone, hair color, or lipstick color preference, there’s something for you! They’re creamy and lightweight, 100% natural, and they’re Available at Target.
#4 – Scarves and Gloves
Remember back in the day when the only gloves you wore were those solid cheapie stretchy gloves you could get anywhere? And when scarves were just something that you used to actually keep your neck warm? Those days are over and gloves and scarves can make as much of a fashion statement as anything else you wear. And they keep you warm for those cold and windy days! Grab your favorite shade of Burt’s Bees lipstick (from the 14 available!) and a colorful scary to add that pop of color to an otherwise white winter.
#5 – Good friends
Okay, I’ll admit I’m stretching the definition of “accessory” a little here, but I kind of think of accessories as things you wear or have with you and with that definition, I’m saying good friends fits. We all know the winter can be long and dreary and unless you’re a snow or cold weather fanatic, you’re likely going to be indoors a lot this winter. Good friends can be the key to getting you through those long days. Go outside and have a snowball fight, try one of these awesome party games, or drink hot chocolate and watch movies together. Good friends really can make a long winter seem not quite so long.
What are your go-to accessories for surviving the winter while still looking fantastic?
