Kendall Jenner just spent New Year’s Eve in Aspen, Colorado riding horses and ringing in 2023 with a star-studded entourage—Kylie Jenner, Hailey Bieber, and Justin Bieber were among the famous vacation crew. I live for celebrity vacations because they basically look like a traveling fashion show—between the beautiful backdrops, designer outfits, and five-star dining, I get a whole season of style inspiration without spending a dime. If you were followed along on Kendall Jenner’s Aspen trip via Instagram as I did, you’ve probably already added Hailey Bieber’s Moonboots and Kylie Jenner’s furry hat to your 2023 purchase list. But if there’s one piece you should instantly buy, it’s Kendall Jenner’s fluffy black earmuffs. The cold-weather accessory made an initial appearance last year, and Jenner confirmed that the earmuff trend is back in full force to brace the 2023 winter.
While Kendall Jenner wore her earmuffs for a very aesthetically-pleasing horseback ride through the snowy mountains (goals), you don’t need a particularly glamorous destination to get in on the trend. Whether you’re headed on a ski trip, a coffee run in the city or just to the grocery store, earmuffs are the fashionable and functional accessory guaranteed to elevate the look of your winter coat.
Earmuffs have the same cool factor as the over-the-ear AirPod Max headphones everyone is wearing because they automatically imply that you do not care to hear what is going on around you. A good pair of earmuffs are essentially soundproof and obviously has the main benefit of keeping your ears warm. Beyond the functionality of earmuffs, they are super freaking cute and beat wearing a beanie. Winter accessories are pretty limited to scarves and hats, so you might as well choose the most adventurous option. Faux-fur earmuffs are usually under $30 so don’t be afraid to get a few colors to match your winter coats.
If you need more evidence that earmuffs are the “it” winter accessory, take a scroll through Bella Hadid’s Instagram page as well. Hadid wore a wild blue pair of earmuffs last year in New York City that I’m still thinking about. Whether you lean towards Hadid’s quirky style or Jenner’s neutral look, there’s a pair of earmuffs for you. Keep scrolling for my favorites.
