Read Time:2 Minute, 48 Second

The nights are drawing in and the temperatures are dropping, which means it’s time to start wrapping up. And the best way to do so while still looking chic is to take your cues from those in colder climates.

Scandinavians in particular know a thing or two about keeping warm while staying stylish. One of the most recent and chicest warming accessories we’ve seen worn in Nordic climes and sold by Scandinavian brands is the balaclava or knitted hood. Commonly associated with keeping children’s heads warm in winter, the balaclava has reached adulthood in the last couple of years and is now a cool girl winter staple.

While the full face-covering option is also trending, we’re seeing more of the open-faced option on IG (as well as the occasional knitted bonnet and bandana). Best worn with the hairline visible (so you don’t look 100% like an egg), the hood can be paired with any outfit and comes in a range of designs, textures and colours to suit any mood. No cold ears this year!

From hand-knits to high street, here are our favourite picks this season.
