The Indian summer seems to have had its last hurrah last weekend, and we finally had to admit defeat on Saturday night—our denim jacket just couldn't fight off the Big Apple bite. As limiting as the cold can be on your fashion sense, we like to think of it as the perfect excuse to accessorize the hell out of every outfit. Our most vulnerable areas—hands, necks, and heads—need cover-up, and naturally we're going to sheath ourselves suavely. So we took some quality-time to scour our favorite local shopping joints to give you a roundup of the raddest mittens, scarves, and hats that will keep your extremities toasty without sacrificing an ounce of style
. Whether you're into toppers fit for a Rockwell painting, or mitts that put your luxe-quotient on high (lambskin lace-up opera gloves, anyone?) you won't ever want to take them off our choice selection, no matter hot you've got that radiator cranked up. So, yea, blustery wind, snow, and ice are on their way, but with this collection of the coziest winter accessories, you'll actually want to leave your hibernation cave. And remember, there's no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing. Coat Check: Make your new accessories even chicer by pairing 'em with the most on-point winter coats.
