Thursday 27th October, 2016 | Posted by Marchbrae
Crisp mornings and dark, cold evenings make wrapping up a must. In addition to a wide selection of jackets for autumn/winter, we have a number of accessories to help keep out the cold this season. Whether it's gloves, scarves, hats or fluffy socks, we've got you covered from head to toe. Our picks include items from heritage brands such as Jack Murphy and Barbour as well as other popular brands like Joules and Jayley. Here are some highlights for A/W '16:
A pair of high quality gloves that will stand up to the rigours of the British wintertime are a must have. This pair from Barbour are one that we think fit the bill perfectly. A cashmere and wool lining makes these equally comfortable and warm on the inside while the leather palm is durable and soft. Featuring Barbour's signature classic tartan to the upper side, they add a nice touch to any gentleman's outfit. Crafted for style and everyday use, these gloves will see you through on colder days.
Featuring a matching fur pom pom, this ribbed knitted hat from Jayley is one that will offer warmth and character is bundles. With 7 colours available at Marchbrae, you won't be short of choices. We picked cream as our selection because we like the neutrality and versatility it offers. Pair with your warmest jacket and cosiest scarf for days when you're really feeling the chill.
When choosing a scarf, it is diffucult to pass up the luxuriously soft feel and durability of cashmere. With a wide selection available here, we picked this Isle of Skye tartan check for its warm autumn colour palette. Ideal for both ladies and gents, Marchbrae's own selection of 100% cashmere scarves are available in a variety of tartans and solid colours suitable for any taste.
Of course, if you prefer lambswool scarves to cashmere, we have a huge variety available. This one from Barbour features their heritage-inspired Winter Dress Tartan and is finished with subtle Barbour branding. It can be matched perfectly with any outerwear but we think it looks great with a black waxed cotton jacket. For ladies how about the Straiton Wax, and for gents, we like the Carrbridge.
When the temperature drops, a warm pair of socks are hard to beat and this bright pink, striped pair from Joules are the fluffiest around. To be worn with wellies, boots or just around the house, these will keep you cosy wherever and whenever you need them. There isn't much more to be said about them other than they are truly soft and we love the bold splash of colour.
For something a little different, how about this Jakarta scarf from Jack Murphy? The faux fur creates a soft, warm barrier against the elements that you'll appreciate when winter hits. The navy herringbone tweed features a faux leather hanging loop decorated with a floral design adding a nice little touch. Also available in country green, the Jakarta is a great gift idea for those making an early start to their Christmas shopping.
We round out our accessories picks with one of our own tartan stoles. Available in a variety of colours, these 100% lambswool stoles are an excellent choice through autumn and winter keeping you warm on even the coldest days. We selected the Red Tartan option as it brings a warm, bright splash to this season's wardrobe. Complete with fringed edges, this luxuriously soft stole is a great size (190x70cm) that drapes off the neck nicely.
As always, we've highlighted only a small sample of what is available. We have a massive range of scarves, stoles, hats and gloves on offer from a range of brands ensuring that there is something for everyone.
