Fairies and pixie dust needn’t be saved for summer…break the winter blues but paring unexpected color and texture combinations for a cosy yet refreshing look. Use the bitter cold as an excuse to add layers of your favourite knits…just make sure that you do not drown yourself in all the fluff…try adding slimming accents such as a belt or vest to those chunky woolies. There are so many beautiful toques and scarves to choose from nowadays so go out and explore~mix and match! Try looking for some fab finds in unexpected places (eg. grandma’s crochet closet…that’s where the toques pictured here are from!) or maybe this is an opportunity for you to take up a hobby…knitting has no age restrictions! Plus, what else do you have to do on those frequent snow days at this time of year? Or is that just us here in Calgary…? 😦 so sad!
