Frigid temperatures and gloomy days can take their toll on your mood but you don’t have to let the long days of winter drag you down! Jazz up your wardrobe this season with a few accessories that will add a stylish twist to your ensemble and give your mood a boost. Just a single accessory can be enough to take your outfit from drab to fab. Pick up a few classic pieces so that you can wear them beyond the current season.
Whether you’re heading to the office or spending the weekend with friends, pull together a hot new look this winter with any of these eight must-have fashion accessories:
#1: Red Scarf
A bold red scarf is the ultimate “it” accessory for winter, the perfect way to brighten up a grey, black or all-white ensemble. You can wear a plain red scarf with your favorite coat or jacket, and pick up a printed style to wear indoors with a cozy sweater or long-sleeve tee. Sporting a dress this season? Wrap the scarf around your waist to heat up your look!
#2: Metallic Handbag
Whether you prefer gold, silver or bronze, metallic handbags continue to be a must-have accessory for winter year after year. Metallic handbags can complement almost any outfit and will glam up your look in a flash! Trade your basic black or brown handbag for a silver hobo, gold tote or bronze satchel to update your look this season.
#3: Chic Belts
You have two options when it comes to choosing the right belt for your figure – super skinny or extra wide. Both styles will add a chic twist to your outfit and can be paired with sweaters, blouses, tunic tops and knit dresses this season. Wear a glittery silver, gold or even a sequined belt with an evening outfit, and go for the shiny patent leather or ruched styles by day. Just remember that belts will draw attention to your midsection, so make sure they sit at the smallest part of your waist whenever possible.
#4: Patent Leather or Croc-Embossed Clutch
Leave your handbag or satchel at home in favor of a stylish clutch this season. Carrying a clutch instead of a handbag can be a refreshing change and will add a new twist to your winter ensemble. Look for a patent leather or croc-embossed clutch that you can carry through the current season and beyond. A clutch can be a fun, low-key accessory to complement your work outfit and social hour ensembles.
#5: Bold Colored Tights
Bright red and bold green tights can put a fun spin on your winter outfit with a punch of color. If you prefer something a little more subtle, try patterned tights with a basic black or grey shift dress, or printed tights with a short skirt this season. Tights can be the perfect accessory for winter season. Pair them with your super-short skirts and short dresses this season and show off those legs in style!
#6: Glittering Headband
Tame those tresses and add a glamorous touch to your winter ensemble with a glittering headband. Both super-wide headbands and a set of skinny headbands decked out in glitter will help to frame your face and freshen up you look. Glittering headbands are perfect for a night out with the girls, date night or a winter soiree.
#7: Statement Necklace
When you’re wearing a low-cut blouse or a v-neck top, finish the ensemble with a statement necklace. Oversized pendants, rope necklaces and exotic charms are just a few eye-catching options that can really make your outfit this season. Stock up on a couple of these stunning accessories to round out your winter wardrobe!
#8: Military Style Hat
The military style hat continues to be a hot trend for the cooler months and is a fun, stylish accessory to have on hand for those “blah” days. Wear this with your favorite sweater, long-sleeve tee or even a wrap dress this season to create a fresh new look.
