I love to wear colours all year round and this time of the year is never an exception.
This is when we start to look into all the pieces that can keep us warm and cozy, like thick coats, sweaters, scarfs, warm hats, boots, gloves to name a few.

Scarfs And Gloves:
I love a good scarf. It adds a bit of sophistication to your outfit when it’s done right.
Scarfs really do keep you warm. It can be worn in several ways, depending on what works for you.

They are made of different kinds of fabrics. So no excuses for not having at least a scarf. And most importantly a pair of good gloves.
You will never go wrong with a good boot that comes with a proper grip on the sole. Boots that can hold you up when the streets are slippery are absolutely crucial.
You want shoes that you can comfortably walk out of the house with, on days when it snows or rains. Shoes that can also keep your feet warm.
My suggestion will be to make sure you have at least a pair of good black boots. They do work perfectly.
There are different price points for boots, depending on your budget. You do not need to break the bank for a solid practical Autumn/Winter boots.
In conclusion. Autumn/ Winter can be very unpredictable. It is also the time of the year when you are susceptible to catching a flu and other related ailments.
