Hats are great in the winter, but they aren’t your only option! Keep your ears toasty warm with these stylish earmuffs.
Sporting earmuffs is an easy way to add some fun to your winter look, but they are a practical way to keep your ears warm too. If you need a pair that is both stylish and functional, you can’t do much better than UGG’s shearling earmuffs, available at The Bay (thebay.com, $98). They come in three equally attractive looks to get you through the tough winter months.
Add a little music
The bonus of choosing to wear earmuffs is that many brands now build speakers right into them, so you can listen to your music on your way to work hassle-free. These earmuffs by UR, for example, have removable speakers hidden in their attractive knitted fabric. There are eight great colours to choose from, and they’re lined with faux fur to keep your ears warm while you listen. Style and function — how can you say no to that?
Knit it up
In the fall and winter you can get away with knitted everything. So why miss out on the chance to sport that fun knitted look where it’s most noticeable? This pair of black earmuffs from ALDO will go well with just about anything, and the intricate knitting will add a cozy flair to your winter attire (alsoshoes.com, $15). Or if you don’t mind paying a little more, you can get Kate Spade’s “women for women” earmuffs, which promote sustainable work and micro-enterprise for women in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Rwanda and Afghanistan (nordstrom.com, $81). Now that’s a winter style you can really feel good about!
