Icing needs cake. And clothing? Well, what it needs are accessories. They’re the things that give an outfit a bit of “umph” and personality. They’re what can make a simple T-shirt and pair of jeans look pretty close to extraordinary.
And with each season, accessories tend to have their own brand of trends. Take this coming winter for example. There are all kinds of things that you can add to bring out the best in your sweaters and boots.
Let’s look to see what some of the most popular winter accessory trends are…
1. French beret
Hats are cool because they are a cute and fashionable way to protect your hair from the harsh winter weather. And this winter, even if you’ve never been to Paris before, you can certainly look like you have thanks to a French beret.
2. Multiple earrings
Do you have a lot of wholes in your ears or you’ve been thinking about getting another piercing? You’ll be super fashionable this season. That’s because this winter, the more earrings that you have on, the better!
3. Messenger bags
If you need a bigger purse, go all out and cop yourself a messenger bag. It’s got plenty of room inside and is designed in such a way that it will fit comfortably on your shoulders.
4. Flower necklace
Just because there may not be any flowers in bloom outside, that doesn’t mean that you can’t bring forth a touch of spring yourself. You can do this by buying one or two necklaces that have flowers on them.
5. Multiple rings
Are you in love with so many of your rings that you just can’t seem to figure out which one to put on? This winter, you don’t have to choose. The more, the merrier. Literally.
6. Ear cuffs
Ear cuffs are a subtle way to make a big fashion impression. (Just make sure that if your hair is long to wear it up in a ponytail or bun so that people can see it!)
If you’re the kind of person who doesn’t really like how you look in a hat, another way to protect your hair is to wrap it up in a headscarf. (Preferably one that is made out of silk or satin so that you won’t dry your hair out.)
8. “Furry” purse
How adorable is this purse? Literally furry ones are in style but also so are the kind that have a bit of a “furry effect”. (Super cute!)
9. Tribal earrings
Aztec prints have basically been big all year. So, it makes sense that the year would close out with some tribal earrings being in style.
Plunging necklines are also in style. You can accent them extremely well with a choker. You can either wear it alone or you can combine it with some of your other necklaces.
11. Jeweled brooches
If you have a grandmother, she’s going to have a few brooches. And she’ll probably let you have one or two of ’em. If not, you can always go to a local thrift store. They are perfect to put on a hat, a shirt or even on your purse.
12. Statement earrings
Statement earrings are pretty self-explanatory. The more unique and elaborate they are, the more of a statement they are going to make.
13. Pom pom bracelets
Little balls of fur. Better yet little balls of confetti. That’s what pom pom bracelets look like to us!
14. Square handbags
Are you looking for a new handbag? What do you think about this square-shaped one? You can go with a formal look or you can opt for one that looks more like the lunchboxes that you used to carry to school as a child.
15. Brimmed hats
Brimmed hats are one of the sexiest ways to protect your hair from the winter weather’s elements. Enough said.
16. Quilted cuff bracelets
A quilted cuff bracelet (especially one that is made out of metal) will be sure to get the gazes—and compliments—of more than a few people.
17. Signet rings
Traditionally, royal people wear signet rings. Now do you see why you should get one?
18. Pom pom hats
Yep. These are the kinds of hats that kids wear. You can talk a stroll down memory lane and look super precious while doing it if you get a knitted pom pom hat.
19. Fringe bracelets
Even if you pride yourself on being a bit on the conservative side of fashion, you can show your daring and sexy side if you invest in a fringe bracelet.
20. Initial rings
Multiple rings are in. So why not get some that have your initials, the initials of your sweetheart—or you can even combine them. It’s a fun look for any casual winter outfit.
