How to Accessorize with Hats, Scarves and Gloves


I received this question from a reader:

What role should winter gloves/scarves/hats play in accessorizing? I’m still figuring out how to make scarf/jewelry/shoes/bags all work together in a not matchy-matchy way, and now that it’s getting cold, and winter adds another set of items to coordinate. (Also, I happen to work in a cold office so it’s not uncommon for me to keep on a winter scarf or fingerless gloves during the work day.) Any thoughts on styling winter gear?
