Never leave home without a coat, Mum would of­ten say ... but add a warm beanie, scarf and gloves, and you’re ready to bat­tle the el­e­ments. Tops of ears, fin­ger­tips and toes are parts of our bod­ies that of­ten feel the win­ter chill im­me­di­ately, so it pays to in­vest in de­cent knit ac­ces­sories that of­fer warmth and mileage to last the sea­son and be­yond. Lo­cal brands such as Muse Bou­tique and Elle & Ri­ley pro­vide stylish and time­less of­fer­ings with their cash­mere ac­ces­sories; while lo­cal gems such as Stan­dard Is­sue and Zambesi pro­vide some beau­ti­ful op­tions for bean­ies and gloves that you’ll cher­ish for win­ters to come. How­ever, no one knows knitwear like the Scots do; it’s worth tak­ing a look at the ex­ten­sive range of knit­ted wool and cash­mere blend ac­ces­sories on of­fer from John­stons of El­gin — made to last — and you’ll be spoilt for choice by the mul­ti­tude of knit socks, bean­ies and scarves de­signed to add some colour to any look on a dreary day. Stay warm.
