Somerville Scarves cashmere wrist warmers, £45 – £49
Seen these long and funky new gloves about? Muddy Kent’s ed Ali is all over the trend…
As someone that has never sacrificed practicality in favour of fashion, I love it when a trend that looks and feels good also fits in perfectly with my working mum lifestyle (pumps, cross-body bags and gin being three examples). I can now add another to that list – wrist warmers. When you’re in and out of the car, fumbling for keys, walking dogs, sitting at a computer etc they are the perfect solution.
Rachel (Muddy Kent Marketing Director) wears Leopard cashmere wrist warmers, £49
They’re not disimilar to a good old fashioned fingerless glove, although a bit less Steptoe and Son, and with just one hole for the thumb. They are an easy, fun way to finish off an outfit and just the ticket for that period when the coldest grip of winter has passed (bye bye awkward gloves) but spring hasn’t really got its act together yet (rain, sun, rain, sun, frost. Repeat).

We particularly love the gorgeous range of cashmere wrist warmers, bobble hats and scarves from online boutique Somerville Scarves. But have also seen fine examples of our fave new accessory stocked locally at Bod & Ted in Tunbridge Wells.
