Investing on accessories is a great way of extending your wardrobe strategically. Autumn rolls around and fashion-forward women get all starry-eyed leather, wool, silk, tweed and cashmere in layers of effortless style. However, it’s crucial to know which pieces will carry from one season to the next. So, keep on reading for the 5 essential accessories to get you from fall to winter.
- Leather Gloves
Gloves should be practical enough to keep you warm, but stylish enough to make you comfortable. Forget the fingerless gloves as the practical choice for fall through winter covers your fingers, preferably in something warm, comfortable and fabulous. Though black, gray-taupe, and camel leather are all elegant and understated, you could never go wrong with bright colors. Like fashion blogger Blair Eadie, you may go for a color that will pop like a purple pair of gloves with your red band outfit. A great pair of gloves will have you covered on fall nights without making you sweaty and keep you warm all day in winter without bulking you up.
- Big, Bold Bags
Big, bold bags will hold all your cool-weather layers. While summer means the end of traveling light, cooler weather means bring layers with you, so go for a big bag that will carry your necessities without busting at the seams. Hobos, totes, and large structured bags are all great choices, especially if they have lots of compartments.
- Tall Boots
Tall boots will keep you warm and dry from September to March. Pair them with tights and a mini in October and with skinny jeans and a tunic sweater in February. Like fashion blogger Chiara Ferragni, you may even opt for fringed boots to add some carefree vibe to your street looks. A neutral-tone leather will never do you wrong and military khaki, sheepskin, snake prints, buckles, studs, grommets and such can be perfect for you.
There are few things more timeless, luxurious and comforting than a cashmere scarf around your shoulders or neck as the weather permitting. Like fashion blogger Blair Eadie, you may go for a plaid print scarf that will add some personality to your outfits. Or, simply go for a cashmere, silk, or merino-wool knit that will go everywhere with you.
Stylish and functional, beanies are great for keeping you warm in the colder months. Like fashion blogger Zanita Whittington, you may create a coordinated look by matching the color of your beanie with the color of your skirt, or simply make it neutral so it’ll go well with any of your outfits. By heeding our simple guidelines, you’ll be able to look stylish and functional on your cold weather outfits.
