Winter is already here and that means the holiday season is on its way. However, staying warm and stylish at the same time is one of the biggest challenges of every fashionista. In the fashion world, it all comes down to “making a statement.” So, you keep your warm sweater or comfortable boots, but don't forget to add on one of these statement accessories.
Here are the 5 essential holiday outfit accessories that will help you stay stylish and warm at the same time.
A Stylish Beanie
What can help you make your winter more tolerable is a good old beanie. When going outside into the freezing cold weather, beanies are a great way to stay warm. Also, a beanie is one of the essential accessories that can help you make a fashionable statement.
There are so many types of beanies available. Beanies with pompoms are very festive and always a great choice for the winter holidays. Free People Faux Fur Pom Beanie is warm, soft, and chic and you can get it for less than $50.
If you are not into pompoms, you can always go for the adorable Mango Pastel Beanie or Madewell Speckled Beanie that will give you that effortlessly-cool look.
A Blanket Scarf
Blanket scarves are a great accessory for the holiday season. The plaid patterns you can find on most of them are very festive. If you don’t like wearing blanket scarves because they can sometimes get too big and overwhelming, don’t worry. All you have to do is fold your scarf into a triangle shape, put the top of the triangle in the front and wrap the two sides around the back of your neck.
One great scarf choice is the Moncler Chunky Fisherman-Stitch Scarf ($415).
If gloves are one of your essential holiday outfit accessories, why would you wear only simple knit gloves when there are so many fashionable choices available? Leather gloves are a perfect choice for making your outfit look more sleek and refined. Plaid gloves will add a festive touch to your outfit. Or, if you like cute accessories, look for gloves that have bows or fur.
If you are want to combine stylish and cute, then Weekend Max Mara Gin gloves ($195) are the best choice for you.
A Large Tote Bag
Do you feel like the handbags you own are too small and you can’t store everything you need in them? This holiday season, treat yourself to a large tote bag in which you can put your wallet, makeup, gifts, receipts, and even your scarf. You can go for a festive red or green purse or maybe a neutral bag which you can use all year long.
The Mulberry Brimley Tote ($1,425) is a carry-all shopper with fold-over sides which will suit all your needs.
A Chic Watch
Whenever you’re feeling unsure which accessory would match your outfit, a chic watch will always do the trick. When buying a watch, it is always a good idea to go for the one that can help you make a statement but also the one you can use with almost all of your outfits. One great example would be A Neutral Watch That’s Not Black by Jacy ($795).
