If you know me at all, you know that accessories are really where I come to play. I'm happily settled into this current iteration of my personal style and have made some solid investments in winter apparel, so my more frivolous seasonal dabbles (and relentless scrolling) tend to be mainly focused on the accessory department. 

Whether you're looking to spend just a little on something fun or really invest in something special, this season's offerings are even more covetable than usual. There's no shortage of polished footwear and belts to dress up your denim, trending bags that you'll never get sick of carrying, and all the cozy hats, gloves, and scarves that are making this New York weather a teeny bit more palatable. Note that they don't need to be loud to make a statement—plenty of the picks below are low-key classics, but I guarantee they'll get you compliments. 

Natalie Cantell
Executive Director, Brand Studio

Natalie leads the style direction for the all content we create in partnership with our friends at various brands plus the legendary team of editors who work on those shoots and stories. She loves collaborating and storytelling, so it's a really fun role for her. It's also the first full-time job she's ever had⁠! She started out in her career as a very mediocre model who agreed to her first styling job to impress a photographer she had a crush on, which led her down a happy path of contributing to Vogue Australia and working as a stylist, fashion writer, and creative director for all sorts of brands and titles. She has a bachelor of communications, but most of her career opportunities came up thanks to some fleeting and accidental street style moments. She's been at Who What Wear for three and a half years and still loves to work as a freelance consultant with brands and designers to shoot their campaigns in NYC. She's originally from New Zealand, and Bondi Beach is her second home, but like just about every other 20-something, she fell in love with New York at some point. She lives in Williamsburg with her fiancé and their weird little dog, Ruby. If you ever need reccies for feel-good fashion, legit coffee spots, politics podcasts, or non-intimidating yoga studios, she's very much your girl.
