A bit of extra hardware and detail goes a long way in winter.
The black-grey winter canvas is so much more appealing when a bit of gleaming metal or embossed leather is thrown into the mix. Plus, finishing of with something ever-so-slightly more showy means you can get away with slumming it in whatever’s warmest everywhere else. Win win.

This backpack is basically a reasonably priced version of the infamous crocodile sack from The Row, while the boots would be just flashy enough with grey skinny jeans and a long, wool Crombie coat.
