I'm not trying to hate on winter weather (OK, maybe a little), but the only good part about it is being able to comfortably wear sweaters. But if you too live for chunky, comfy knits wrapped around your body, don't just stop at sweaters. Add some sweater-knit accessories to your wardrobe to really round out the snuggly effect of an all-sweater ensemble. I'm talking hats, gloves, scarves, even socks and shoes. Because does any part of your body really deserve to be without the softness and warmth of a sweater?
Maybe I'm coming across a little melodramatic here. But as human beings who still have to function when it's cold and dark (why??), enveloping ourselves in sweater knits is about as close to hibernation as we can get. (And I don't know about you, but I'm all for sleeping through snow and ice and freezing temps.) But since we can't actually be in a dormant state for the next five months, here are 12 sweater-knit accessories to pair with actual sweaters, that might help us all stay in a cuddly and cozy state of mind — even if we do still have to be real people doing real things.
1. Slouchy Beanie
Phase 3 Chunky Rib Knit Beanie, $24, Nordstrom
