Accessories Access: Affordable & Cute Cold Weather Must-Haves!


Baby, it’s cold outside, which means that you better bundle up in style! That includes hats, headwraps, scarves, & gloves when facing the brutal change in temperature. Not to mention that for Cyber Monday, there are plenty of great buys to help solve your holiday gift giving dilemma, & why not treat a loved one to something cozy & chic like a pom pomp beanie or luxe infinity scarf? Here in the Northeast, it’s been windy & chilly, which means that I’m not leaving the house without layers of elegant extras that won’t add too much frompy bulk. However, as an avid collector of scarves, I’ve found that when it comes to cold weather accessories, there’s such a variety in colors & textures to create an interesting & stylish outerwear look to play with how you style your go-to winter coat.

‘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!

So I’m swicthing gears a little here to share some fun gift ideas if you’re a Style Darling on a budget & you’re out shopping among the madness that is known as Black Friday.  @Banana Republic you can score some chic gifts for your famile friends while enjoying their 40% off your total purchase sale, which ends today, using code BRFRIDAY.  When I think about gifts, I always try to consider accessories, just to be on the safe side if I’m not sure about size.

I know I try & update my fall / winter accessories with fun pieces that help express my personality, but can also transcend multiple outfits.  This include the very necessary convertible knit glove ($29.50) in grey, which is also available in black, white, red, & tan to match with any other outerwear favorites.  Also, the heritage gathered stripe cap ($29.50) in tan, but also comes in navy & grey, adding a little sparkle to your cold weather accessories.

The sheer diamond tight ($22.50) in burgundy is both on-trend & perfect for wearing from now until the spring. This gift is perfect for a gal pal who takes pride in her work wardrobe, but loves to play with unexpected colors & make a style statement.  When it comes to stylish gifts, there’s nothing like a little splash of animal print, which is why I added the animal print hairfalf skinny belt ($39.50) to be worn over a cardigan, contrast with a plaid button-down & pencil skirt, or to wrap across a sheath dress for a cocktail party.  Lastly, it wouldn’t be the holiday season without a scarf & love the flowy nature of the Bobbi striped scarf ($39.50) in light grey. If you wanna bring a nautical chic feel to your fall / winter look, then I would recommend this in navy for you!
