A chunky knit scarf
Scarves are great all year round. A chunky knit scarf can see you through those chilly autumnal nights and trips out for coffee in winter. If you’re not a knit kind of person, softer fabric scarves are great for layering in the cooler months, but can also be used as shawls and throws in spring and summer if the evenings drop in temperature!
They’re also perfect for adding a splash of colour to a relatively dark winter outfit, so make sure you invest in some in your favourite shades.
There’s honestly no need to buy a completely new wardrobe as we change seasons. Keeping the planet in mind, it’s a good idea to give your old outfits a new lease of life by adding a few carefully selected accessories in a cute pattern or seasonal colour.
