Fashion Friday: Winter Essentials

I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is approaching so quickly. It seems like only yesterday that I was putting all of my scarves, boots, and other winter accessories in the back of my closet. If you are at a lost of what kind of accessories are on trend this year, then have no fear, because I am here to help! I personally love winter accessories. They can instantly change any outfit you are wearing. Just have some fun with bundling up…believe me, it is best to have fun when it is unbearable outside.

It is definitely key to keep your hands warm. I just love these gloves from J.Crew. They are simply chic with the half leather, half faux leopard print. Be sure to snag these gloves for $175.

I just have to admit it, I love scarves…I have a drawer full of them. The “pull through fur scarf” is something that is totally different than what I already have. This bright blue pull through by Adrienne Landau is so perfect. It not only adds a pop of color to any coat, but it will keep you nice and warm-which is so important. This scarf is available at Intermix for $295.

I love a beret. It is just that simple. This beret from Bebe is totally adorable. I love the snow white color (it will look fabulous with every hair color), and the bow adds a fun, feminine touch. Look amazing at this amazing price–$39.

My mom always told me that if your ears are warm, then your whole body will be warm too. I totally agree with that statement. Plus, it gives you a good reason to go out shopping and get yourself a great pair of adorable earmuffs. I have a pair very similar to these from Asos. They are faux fur, but they are equally as warm. They are only $21.56 online.

Last, you have to have a great pair of warm boots. They also have to look cute too. I love this pair by Ugg. Now, I am not a fan of the past styles designed by Ugg, but today, they have definitely stepped up when it comes to being fashion forward. Lace-up boots are totally on trend right now, and with the shearling on the inside, that is just a winning combination. The boots are available at Nordstrom for $249.49.

Boots are all the rage this fall. They are so helpful in keeping your feet warm from the snow, ice, and wind. Boots are super comfortable, and they are acceptable to wear in most work places. For today’s post, I have found three types of boots that are must haves for this fall. You can either splurge on a pair of boots, or you can get them for a steal! It all depends on your monthly or seasonal budget.

First, I found two great pairs of tall black wedges. I just love wearing wedge boots because they are not only comfortable, but they look great with jeans tucked in, or they look great with dresses and skirts with tights. They can be casual or dressy.

Splurge- Rick Owens for $1,895 at Saks

Steal- Lucky Brand for $219

I love lace up ankle boots. They are great for casual work days and running errands on the weekend. I love them with rolled up jeans and a simple tee with a sweater or with a girly dress and a jean jacket.

Splurge- Diesel for $320 at Ssense

Steal- Old Navy for $25

This fall and winter, you are going to need a great pair of rain boots. Not only are they essential for those rainy days, but they are perfect for walking in sloshy and slippery snow. When it gets super cold outside, buy some rain boot socks to keep your feel extra warm.

Splurge- Givenchy for $280 at Kima Zabete

Steal- Chooka for $89 at Dullards
