Surely we weren't the only ones who slunk into the office today with our hat-less hair covered in snow flurries and our hands raw and red from the cold. Mother Nature 1, us nil.
The new spring pieces landing in stores may have us daydreaming about bare arms and lightweight fabrics, but with the forecasts calling for more snow and freezing temps, it looks like we'll have no choice but to invest in some cosy winter accessories as we gear up for round two.
Fortunately, these six pieces hit the sweet spot when it comes to being practical and stylish, with snazzy crystal-and-beaded embellishments, and beyond-bright colours for plenty of flair. Don't forget to double up on the socks, stash a package of tissues in your purse, and hide a hot water bottle underneath your jumper. We won't tell.
