It sure is chilly outside! In the swiish office, we really just see that as the perfect reason to stock up on our favourite winter essentials. Many trends from last winter have cropped back up this year and each ‘must have’ is sure to keep you warm (and stylish!) during the harsh winter chill.
The snood has collected many fans, including a range of celebs,and for good reason. Worn primarily as a chunky style scarf (though some do like to wear it over their head – double duty!) the snood should definitely be on your 2013 winter accessory list.
swiish pick: Jordan Knitted Snood, $34.99, Forever New.
Practical and chic, the doctor’s bag is everywhere this winter season. Like we needed an excuse to get a new bag! The doctor’s bag has all the room to store your winter essentials and with its sturdy structure, should get you through a few seasons.

We’ve raved about wedge sneakers before at swiish, they’re some of the coolest kicks around. These wedge shoes look great teamed with leather-look tights or skinny jeans, an oversized shirt and a blazer. Hotter than hot.

We have a HUGE obsession with leather at swiish, and have found ourselves particularly besotted with the essential leather leggings. Paired with an oversized knit or dress tee, you can also try leather panel leggings for just a splash of leather if you’re not wanting to make too much of a statement.
swiish pick: 1&20 Blackbirds Leather-Look Zip Back Leggings, $49.95, The Iconic.
Shop the look: Boohoo, The Iconic, and Missguided
At swiish, we have fully embraced the hat trend. And as the weather gets chillier, nothing has changed – hats are still your super-stylish go-to accessory. What we love about them is that they can be teamed with just about any outfit, bringing a touch of chic (wide brimmed, floppy) or a little edge (beanies).
swiish pick: Morgan & Taylor Felt Floppy, $56.95, The Iconic.
