Hats are one of those cold weather accessories that can be tricky to pull off. However, they can also complete a look and make a long lasting impression. The classic beanie is one of my personal favorites that’s great for keeping your head and ears warm. It’s the most functional for fall and comes in several fashionable options, including embellished designs and chunky knit textures. For something less conventional, experiment with berets, newsboy caps, and wide brim fedoras. I love adding hats to my look when I need to stay bundled and warm.
I oftentimes need to be on my phone to respond to emails and share content on social media. Gloves make it all possible throughout the colder season. One of my recent discoveries is tech-friendly gloves that not only look great, but work effectively on a touchscreen phone. Leather gloves tend to look more polished and professional than knit. However, if you like the casual, cozy look of knit gloves, there are tech-friendly options too.
A fall wardrobe isn’t complete without a few scarf options to protect your neck and face from the arctic cold. With so many prints, patterns, and silhouettes available, scarves are my favorite way to add interest to a classic coat. Though cashmere and wool-blend scarves will always have a place in my wardrobe, I’ve also become a fan of faux fur stoles. I love how it dresses up your look while adding a ton of warmth. Nothing feels better on brutally cold days than a soft, cozy scarf wrapped around your neck.
As fall tends to be a season of layers and dark neutrals, updating your look with statement jewelry can be refreshing. This season’s jewelry is all about big, eye catching pieces that add instant glam. Whether it’s chain necklaces, sleek, gold hoops, or colored gemstones, they’re all so easy to incorporate into your daily look. Statement earrings and bold necklaces are my go-to pieces for taking a look from day to night or office to weekend.
Don’t think that socks are just something to hide inside your boots! There are so many styles that are meant to be shown – peeking out from OTK boots or over a pair of leggings with booties. If you can find a pair that are warm and cozy and also cute too. I’m even a big fan of the ones that are meant for cozy nights on the couch too!
