Accessory Report: Winter Essentials

When it comes to styling a great winter look, it’s always about the details. Those little fash extras that usually come at the last second have the power of taking an ensemble to the next level. While spring and summer had me buying flower pins in bulk, there’s no bigger accessory selection than the one that comes with lower temperatures. Below are a few of my must-have fash flair pieces for the season to help you achieve a super chic winter ensemble.

Fur Scarf

Essential alert! By far my favorite accessory of the season offering affordable luxury is a seriously glamorous faux fur scarf. This fash extra has the power to make jeans and a sweater look ultra posh.

There’s no denying the importance of a winter boot. They’re simply a necessity. Add a pop of color or a fun design to your look with an inexpensive pair of boot socks.

Wind and hair are never an ideal combo. Tame your locks this season with a colorful beret. This accessory is less intrusive than a scarf and even looks fab when you’re exiting a room. Bonus!
