2013 Black Friday Style: Watch Out For Cold Weather Accessories!

‘Tis the season for cold weather accessories, & they always make for a great gift for the holidays. However, if you’re looking to mix up your outerwear look, but love your classic coat, changing up your hat, scarf, & gloves will do the trick! I’m a big fan of scarves, wearing them with my coats & coordinating them with my tunic sweaters & other essentials.

Avenue - Metallic Headband $12.00, Zara - Short Faux Leather Gloves $25.90, Charlotte Russe - Ruffled Open Knit Scarf $12.99, LOFT - Pearlized Gem Embellished Hat $34.50, & Kohl's - Croft & Barrow Ombre Animal Fringed Scarf $9.99.

Some suggestions that break that break the conventions of neutral cold weather accessories include the following: metallic headband ($12.00) in camel @Avenue, short faux leather gloves ($25.90) in navy @Zara, ruffled open knit scarf ($12.99) in rust @Charlotte Russe, pearlized gem embellished hat ($34.50– use code ENJOY for 40% off) in pale berry pink @LOFT, & Croft & Barrow’s ombre animal fringed scarf ($9.99) @Kohl’s.

I’m such a big fan of patterns when it comes to scarves, especially polka dots or houndstooth, which is why I also wanted to feature these other accessories for more shopping fun: Aeropostale, Wet Seal, Ann Taylor, QVC, Joe Fresh, & Urban Outfitters. Happy Styling!

The Stylish Five: Stock Up on Winter Deals for Next Year ($10 & Under)!

I recently posted on some of the great deals that are coming out for the spring, but you can’t forget about some of the irresistible finds that are still hanging out in stores from this past winter.  Not to mention that all of these items are under $10, which can make for a lasting investment when next winter rolls around.  It’ll be like they’ve already paid for themselves by the time you start wearing them!  If you check out the clearance deals at stores like Forever 21,Wet Seal, Charlotte Russe, & Target, you’ll find some of last season’s best items still available.  A few more fashionable finds from this winter for more money include this studded suede pencil skirt, Venice-themed printed long-sleeved tee, faux fur sweater jacket, & these black leather cut-out booties (as seen in People Style Watch‘s December issue). Let’s not forget about some our favorite winter looks worn by celebrities like Jessica Alba, Olivia Palermo, Fergie, & Blake Lively for some cold-weather inspiration in the future! Happy Styling!
