The Truth About These Winter Accessories Myths


Every year when the temperatures drop, we have a major choice to make: Do we want to be warm, or do we want to look good? Is it possible to be both? Luckily, with these new trends, you can. Today, we bust three winter accessories myths: Earmuffs—yay or nay?, whether texting with gloves on is actually possible, and the deal when it comes to mixing and matching your outerwear accessories. Although these may be things that you’ve typically avoided in the past, it’s now possible to be toasty and cute, all winter long.

Myth: Earmuffs aren’t cute and are too childish to pull off.

Truth: Nowadays, earmuffs can be incredibly chic and grown up—warm and cozy in faux fur or fleece and with newer, updated shapes. Some are even technologically advanced, serving as headphones and a source of warmth!

Myth: You can’t text while wearing gloves.

Truth: Many brands now carry tech gloves, or ‘texting’ gloves, that allow your smartphones to register touch while keeping your precious hands warm and toasty! The best part is, these special gloves are available in a number of cute styles, from leather to knits!

Myth: Your scarves, gloves and hats should always match.

Truth: FALSE! We’re all fans of mismatched colors and prints at NYLON, so whether you choose to mix a combo of a minimal black and white, eye-popping neons, or pretty pastels, we say go for it—the more interesting the better!
