Beanies or Berets you must have
Find the perfect beanie or beret for your outfit, whether it is for the snow or the city. A good knit hat has the power to instantly upgrade any outfit, whether you're running to the bar or a business meeting. But choosing the right beanie or beret might be tricky, that's why we've done the work of narrowing down this season's best shapes, fabrics, and colours to ensure the one (or a few) you pick up will be your cold weather confidant all winter.
Top Tips On How To wear a Beanie or Beret
1. To achieve a smart look, stick to the basic, neutral colours – black, khaki, cream, or brown. If you feel mischievous, you may want to try white, mustard, or red as well. The important thing is to stick to a block colour.
2. If you have dark hair, you can also choose some dark colours such as black, grey, ivory or deep blue. Our personal favourite color for dark hair is the classic wool red beret. And in case you have blonde or light coloured hair, try our blush ribbed beanie with faux pom pom.
3. Our crocheted angora & acrylic berets make a wonderful winter accessory, however, unlike beanies, they don't cover the ears. That's why it's a good idea to compensate with a chunky knit scarf or faux fur collar to keep yourself warm.
Fabric is important – something like cashmere or wool-lined leather gloves will be comfortable and warm. Leather is smarter but doesn’t work as well with things like casual wear, whereas plain gloves in neutral colours – black, camel and grey are best and will look good with everything from smart casual downwards. If you’re only going to have one pair, go for a versatile, neutral colour. But a second pair with a faux-fur trim or colourful Redcurrent Bette Gloves can be good for adding personality.
Scarves, Shawls & Wraps
Like hats these are not solely practical. The scarf is such an important piece during winter, and here at Redcurrent we love wearing them. As the nights draw in, and the chill in the air is unquestionable, scarves become a necessary daily accessory in Winter. From oversized blanket scarves to chic neck ties and wool wraps & capes, there's sure to be a style to slot into your new season wardrobe.
The Blanket scarf
Wrapped around shoulders for maximum warmth and cosiness. This winter has been the season of the checked fringed scarf. While the runway version is so thick it’s practically a blanket, this version is slim enough to tuck underneath an overcoat.
The Plaid Scarf
Blend your plaid scarf with your ensemble, wear loose around the neck, as beautifully modelled by Eve. A classic thick check goes well with a bright winter coat or cosy knit.
Thick and Tonal
Beautifully soft chunky knit with a fun striped pattern, it's perfect for brightening up any outfit as the weather cools down.
People often think that pashminas are solely the preserve of weddings. Whilst this it is true they do look beautiful draped over the shoulders and are perfect providing the finishing touch to a special occasion, they also offer an elegant layer to protect you from the cold too. Our Pashmina scarves and Shawls are also great for everyday wear as well - featuring a simple understated weave and gentle tassel edge, they looks great over smart tailored blazer during the day either hanging loose across the shoulders or gently draped around the neck, a complement to a more relaxed daytime or working wardrobe.
Best Ways To Dress Up Your Handbag Or Hair With A Silk-Feel Scarf
As you probably know by now, you can create so many beautiful and trendy looks using a silk or silk-feel scarf. This time-less accessory has come back into fashion full throttle. This is a great way to reinvent and bring new joy to your silk-feel accessories!
Wearing a scarf in your hair is such a great way of doing the most with minimal effort. If you love to experiment with fashion but don’t have time in the mornings before work, the school run or university, chucking a scarf in your hair, on your bag or around your neck is a sure fire way to add flair to your style. You can wear scarves in the most bold and bright ways but can also wear them for more toned-down look. See below our favourite 3 ways of tying wearing a silk scarf.
It is a great way to make your bag look new and fresh without going out and actually buying a new one (but of course if you want a new bag - we have plenty of those too). This is perfect if you need to quickly switch that bright scarf out for a monochrome one!
There are myriad ways to tie a silk scarf, which is one of the many reasons it's considered such a timeless accessory. The most classic (and easiest) way to tie a square silk scarf is as follows. Fold our scarf into a large triangle, from the bottom of the triangle, fold the scarf onto itself all the way to the top point. The fabric should now be in a long, skinny shape. Take the two ends and wrap the scarf around your neck. Tie the ends in a knot and fashion it however you'd like.
Here's a super-easy way to add instant style to all your outfits, from weekend jeans and a t-shirt looks, to dressed up outfits for the office. Simply fold a square silk scarf in half to form a triangle, then wrap it around your neck, so the point is downward. Knot the loose ends together at the back, and you're good to go.
