Since we probably didn’t expect the cold weather to start so soon, it’s easy to think that staying trendy and well-dressed is no longer an option. Rest assured though! There are so many accessories to help glam up your outfit and keep you warm and cozy! Fall and Winter are all about layering.
1. The Leather Jacket
The ultimate fall necessity is a black or brown leather jacket. Not only are they immediate fashion statements, but they are thick enough to keep the rain away. Pair one with a sweater and jeans for an easy look. For a night out, add a little edge by swapping jeans and a sweater for a dress or a crop top!
2. The Drape Vest Sleeveless Cardigan
Invest in one.. These are as comfortable as the baggy, wool cardigans we all love, but they also allow you to show off a gorgeous long-sleeve shirt or sweater underneath. For a warmer day, opt for a thin cotton one, and switch to a wool-lined thick vest if it snows (like it did last week).
3. The Plaid Scarf
It’s a replacement for the plaid flannel everyone tends to wear in the freezing months, but adds a unique flair. Wear it with solid neutral colors to give it the best stand-out effect. Courtesy of Pinterest, here’s an example of different ways to wear one. Change it up depending on whether you’re wearing a sweater, vest, or dress underneath.
4. The Tan Pea Coat
Finally, keep yourself extra cozy with a tan pea coat. Pea coats work for a day in or a night out, and the tan hues make it a perfect addition to any outfit, regardless of color. You can wear it over a body-con dress or dark jeans if you’re going out, or a simple sweater and pants if you’re headed to Bass.
