Personally, this season's most surprise fashion favourite has got to be the balaclava. Whilst I dipped my toe during the later summer months, I didn't expect to love the trend quite so much as I do.
I've seen many-a-fashion babe rocking them this winter and I have to thank the fashion God's for bringing this trend into our lives as it is just SO damn snuggly!
I don't think I've ever had such a warm and toasty winter before, what with my head, ears and neck all being wonderfully cocooned in knitwear. The balaclava is truly a force to be reckoned with and I really do hope that it's a trend that will stick around for many winter's to come. It's both super cool and completely practical and that is ALWAYS a trend I can get onboard with. Thankfully for me and any other balaclava lovers out there, I have already seen balaclavas on the runway's of Copenhagen Fashion Week so we have another winter with our favourite warmer at least.
Despite that, I'm fully converted and plan to rock my balaclavas for many seasons to come and since it's currently the hot topic in the fashion accessories world, I thought I'd share some of my fave looks and also a lil shopping list of some balaclavas on the market currently.
