From Balaclavas to Knee Socks, These 29 Trendy Winter Accessories Don't Top $50

affordable winter accessories

I don't know about you, but I'm definitely feeling the winter blues right now, and the dreary weather hardly helps. But with any new season comes a brand-new round of trends, and I'll be taking this opportunity as a bit of sartorial escapism and reporting on the latest among them. As always, I've got you covered with everything from coat trends to boot trends, and this winter, the accessories are especially exciting. I scrolled through the internet for hours to find the items that are as cool as they are affordable.

If you live in a colder climate, you know that winter accessories are a category all their own. During the rest of the year, our hats, scarves, and sunglasses are simply the stylish choices that enhance our outfits, but during the winter, they're nonnegotiables that can make or break a case of frostbite. The good news: The winter accessory trends on deck this season are as cool as they are practical, with items like leg warmers and balaclavas taking center stage. 

With that, keep scrolling to see and shop all the trendy outfit additions I'm shopping now.

If I see you wearing one of these, I know you get it.
