Is the cold winter compelling you to bundle up in layers of grey and black? This season is all about breaking the monotony with genderfluid accessories that add a distinct personality to your outfit. The androgynous styles have made a strong entry in the fashion circuit with bold colours and quirky prints to spruce up the winter wardrobe for men and women. Narendra Kumar, Creative Director, Amazon Fashion, India gives you some tips to ace your winter look.

Scarves
Contrast your dark outfits with colourful scarves. Bright scarves in different patterns can add some colour and charm to the overall look without being too bulky. Not only are they handy but can also be styled with different knots and drapes to accentuate basic outfits. For men who are unsure of how to carry a scarf, try the overhand knot that can be seamlessly paired with your jackets.

Socks and tights
Socks are often overlooked but lately, bold colours and varied prints have been trending. For a toned down look, short ankle length socks can be worn with loafers or boots with the top peeping out. When it is cold outside and you’re wearing a short dress, a good pair of tights will keep you comfortable. Go for wool socks or a pair of black tights that will work with most outfits.

Beanies
Beanies are for a casual winter street look. While there are fitted woollen beanies, high tops and thin slouchy ones, it is important to pick one that fits your head well and goes with the rest of your outfit. You can wear it low over your head or cuff it.

Boots
Boots make a great style statement adding an edge to your overall attire. As a very versatile footwear option, you can dress it down in jeans and a flannel shirt or go glam with your favourite LBD for a night out. You can get waterproof and insulated boots for extra comfort. Women can opt for ankle length zipper boots or thigh high boots. If you are picking tall boots, wear skinny jeans so it’s easy to fit in.

Backpacks in Muted Tones
With the winter neutral tones, you should have a go-to bag that can go with just about everything and hold all your essentials in colours like black, grey, tan or nude. This can be your staple, everyday backpack or a handbag. Pick one with toggles, drawstrings and other detailing.
