In this strangest of years, fashion is rapidly being redefined and with it winter accessories, the unsung heroes of dressing. Their colossal power to make or break an outfit earns them a special landing page on our flagship store, JCPenney. From earmuffs and gloves to classic beanies and face masks, you can have them all. But, it’s essential to know how to step up your style with these winter accessories. After all, they will be helping you stay stylish, warm, and toasty all season long.
The Great Staple of Your Winter Wardrobe
The cold-weather headwear landscape is a tricky area to traverse, with beanies as the only vaguely acceptable option. They are the perfect completion to the current men’s utilitarian workwear and fashioned in different styles to match your persona.
Championed by hip-hop royalty, workmen and everyone else in between, the classic cuffed beanie is the most versatile winter headgear. Then comes the bobble hat. Though the pom-pom on top isn’t exactly the manliest of decorative details, it has its roots in the military! Simply layer up with your thermals and any one of these beanies, and get ready to battle the elements in style.
Spread the Holiday Cheer
The festive season is upon us, which means gift shopping, delicious food, Christmas carols, and long-needed catchups with loved ones. In this cheerful time, protect yourself and those around with a festive face mask! It conceals the parts of ourselves that are usually exposed, but that doesn’t mean our emotions have to be hidden too. Wearing a face mask can become more than just a responsibility — it can be an entirely new form of spreading the holiday cheer!
You can choose a cute snowman mask for a little one and a whimsical holiday unisex mask for yourself. Or get matching masks for the whole family to add a little bit of fun to your Christmas dinners and parties!
Keep Your Neck Warm, so Winter Drafts are no Match
Whether it’s high-waisted jeans or belted dresses, every winter wear needs a scarf upgrade. The best part: they come in every imaginable color, texture, material, and length, so you’ll never be starved for choice. Unlike other winter accessories, scarves can be worn in different styles. They can be draped over one shoulder, halfway wrapped around, or even worn as a poncho.
While short, furry scarves are considered the ideal choice, you can choose between plaid scarves and wraps as well. You can give any one of these a try the next time you’re deciding how to create the perfect weekend look.
The Finishing Touch to Every Outfit
Though gloves won’t ever form the foundation of an outfit, they can elevate your look. They add an extra barrier to ward off the chill and an extra dose of luxe. As a thumb rule, choose gloves that match the color of your shoes, watch strap, belt, hat, or scarf.
If your preference leans towards performance-based style, you can choose gloves with stretch panels that feature device-friendly fingers, permitting you to scroll, type, and swipe. Or, if you’re embarking on a much-needed winter getaway, consider winter- and water-resistant gloves with grippy fingers that provide more dexterity. And don’t worry, there are plenty of options for roomy mittens as well.
