Winter’s well and truly here, but let’s be honest, it never leaves England for long. It’s all very well getting a winter coat, but cold weather accessories like scarves, hats and gloves are carried around in people’s bags well into Spring, just in case.
Last Christmas I got these amazing leather and wool mittens in the Kurt Geiger sale, reduced from £75 to a mere £15.
I’ve seen mittens that fold back into gloves many times, but I love that these have a gold zip to keep my fingers warm, and an unobtrusive black popper to hold them back. The contrast of grey leather and red wool always gets them noticed whenever I wear them too.
I can’t recommend checking out the Kurt Geiger sale at Christmas as they always have massive reductions. I always just saw them as a shoe retailer (which they are mainly), but their accessories are affordable and not worn to death by everyone else on a high street budget.
