Whether or not you choose to splurge on a few clothing pieces in keeping with this season’s trends, you can easily update your classic wardrobe by adding some key accessories. Not only will you save money, but you’ll have a lot of fun with the types of materials that are trending from head to toe this winter.
Take it from the Top
Even a simple, monochromatic ensemble can take on an updated look with a few well-chosen accessories framing your face — after all, it’s always the focal point! This year’s hair trends include two styles of hair accessories: puffy headbands and personalized hairpins. The vintage-inspired headbands we’re seeing can be referred to as Alice bands and come in a range of fabric and pattern options, including velvet, plaids, and jewels. Speaking of jewels, sparkling hairpins take the form of words and other designs that highlight your unique personal style.
If you’re looking for sunglasses that make a style statement this winter, look for angular designs instead of rounded ones. Large or small, square black frames with pastel lenses offer one of many options for this season’s style.
As feminine and understated as the studded hairpins are, the necklace of choice this season is a chunky chain in either bronze, gold, or silver tones that will give your outfit a bit of a rebellious edge. The same necklace can accessorize almost any outfit this season — whether you’re wearing a turtleneck and tweed pants or a dress with kitten heels or your favorite high-heeled boots.
Stick to the Mid-range
When it comes to bags, this season has a few eye-catching trends you’ll want to look out for. From dainty to oversized, buckles are making a major style statement on this season’s bags. Another handbag look we’re seeing this fall and winter includes designer hero bags with shearling accents. Even if you don’t need the extra warmth for the contents of your purse, this cozy look is perfect for winter!
As you venture beneath the belt, a new way to show off your favorite brand’s logo this season comes in the form of logo tights! Paired with a short or sheer skirt, your legs will make a statement when they’re decorated with your favorite famous name.
Stay on Your Toes
When it comes to footwear with stylish flair, we’re loving all things animal skin. Snakeskin in particular is being seen on everything from sandals to knee boots. Perfect for pairing with an understated all-black outfit, snakeskin shoes and boots come in neutral tones as well as bright colors for added attention-getting allure.
Just like the buckles we’re seeing on handbags, metal hardware is showing up on boots as well — especially clunky motorcycle boots. Some are simpler and closer to ankle height, while others are knee-high and clearly mean business. Whether you pair these with other androgynous pieces or contrast them with dainty lace and other feminine details, the effect can be whatever you desire.
