Winter Accessories That Warm Your Outfit

With winter firmly approaching and the days cooling off, your wardrobe is bound to shift. The floaty dresses and open toe wedges are being traded in for skinny jeans and knee-high boots, with cocktails in the sun traded for hot chocolate in the snow. Winter is indeed very much on the way and as your clothing swaps over to something more suitable for the season, so must your accessories. Coco Chanel once said that “fashion changes but style endures” and you should take that advice with you to the stores when you go shopping for your accessories. Fashion will change season to season and year to year, but if you’re stylish and choosy with your accessory choices, you won’t ever be out of fashion!

Choosing your accessories in the digital age is easy, especially with smart clothes on the rise. We’re not talking tailored suits and designer handbags, we’re talking a GPS trackable smart wallet that matches your outfit and keeps you safe. We’re talking this Samsung belt that can tell you whether you’ve gained any holiday weight. Winter accessories that warm up your outfit don’t just stay with the traditional anymore, not when there are smart clothes on offer to keep you looking fantastic. So, what warming accessories can you wear in the colder months to keep you toasty?

Smart Jeans. Okay, so regular jeans are technically not an accessory as such, but smart jeans ARE a walking accessory and when you’re putting away the dresses and maxi skirts and swapping them for jeans, wearable tech is an amazing option. These Joe’s Jeans are able to charge your iPhone 6 as you walk, making them comfortable and functional as an option this winter. Pair them with some…

Ugg Boots. Never out of fashion, comfy boots are a total must in the colder months. These authentic Uggs are waterproof and will keep you warm wherever you are, and with a pair of jeans you will be on trend!

Oversized Scarf. The beauty with scarves is that they can be worn more than one way. They can transform an entire outfit and make it so that you look trendy and smart all at the same time. Oversized scarves aren’t just an accessory, they’re an essential for the season!

Techy Gloves. Similarly to smart jeans, gloves that are combined with digital tech are a must. Trying to text on a smartphone when you’re out in the cold is impossible, but these amazing gloves have a fabric on the fingers that work on your phone screen so you won’t freeze while updating people on where you are!

Hats. Winter is a time for warming and hats, while beautiful all year round, are perfect in the winter. Beanies are just the perfect mix of cute and sexy while still remaining stylish, and beanies that hang off the back of your head are a stunning way to accentuate your hairstyle while keeping toasty.

Winter accessories are not boring ones, they’re a necessity to stay stylish and bright even when the world is grey and gloomy!

 

Blanket Scarf Style


Oh man, it has been a hot minute since I have shared an Outfit Inspiration!

Yes, this is a simple, easy to throw together outfit, but the best part about this outfit is the blanket scarf.

It is from Jo-Ann Fabrics and is the easiest DIY ever! At the beginning of the season they came out with some great plaid prints in a variety of fabrics. Some were a classic, thicker, flannel like fabric, but this one was a lighter weight fabric.

I loved the colors as well as the weight of the fabric, this piece goes with many outfits in my closet.

I simply took it, and one other plaid fabric, to the cutting counter and asked if they could cut a square pieces for me. Once at home, if needed, I gently touched up and frayed/uneven parts on the edges. No sewing involved! 

I love it and have worn it often! Let me know if you try this yourself.

Fashion Tip Friday

  

I have been down for the count the last few days of this week fighting off a cold bug, so I am a day late with this week’s post, sorry all!
Happy Fashion Tip Friday! I know we all love a good cable knit look this season, however, much like last week, we must remember that less is more. You want to avoid looking bulky, but also remember that the texture and patterns of the knits might not go well together.
