The Floppy Hat
We all know that wearing a hat not only keeps your head somewhat warm but it also allows us girls to have a bad hair day every once in a while. This is such a fun accessory for the winter giving you a chic and sophisticated look. Throw this on with your favorite sweater and sunglasses and you will instantly look put together. Easy.

Over the Knee Boots
Everyone needs boots in the winter time because not only are they comfortable but they seem to never go out of style. Over the knee boots are feminine and edgy at the same time.

The Perfect Leggings
Leggings oh how I love you. These are a winter essential for sure no matter who you are. I think leggings are going to be around forever and will never get old. Worn the right way, leggings are very stylish, chic and comfortable on any woman. No matter where you get them, the secret to a fab legging is to make sure they are thick, opaque and comfortable. I like wearing them with tops that are not to long but cover my behind for sure. My favorite leggings are sold at J.Crew and Limited.

Ok lets talk ponchos. I have always been into these through the years but I think this winter they are becoming more popular. Let me tell you, When you don’t know what to wear and are in a hurry, throw on all black and a poncho and you will look so fab! You can find these at just about ANY retail store. I found one of mine at Old Navy for under $40.

A little Shimmer
A lot of us wear statement pieces and shimmer year around but I think its even more necessary to sport your biggest and shiniest things during the winter. Not only are they fun and festive, this is such an easy way to jazz up a simple dress or top during the winter time.

I love a good faux fur vest. They are super stylish and warm and easy to dress up or down. I’ve worn my vest with leggings, dresses and jeans. When buying faux fur, make sure it doesn’t look extra fake and the material is soft and doesn’t bother you. Some fur pieces tend to shed and get all over the place so make sure you test it good before you waste your money. Check out these options!

Over Sized Scarves
There’s nothing much to say about a good over sized scarf except that you need one! Like most of these winter essentials, this pulls together a look in two seconds. You can wear it with anything and will keep you warm for sure. I love a good blanket scarf because you can wrap up in it or wear it around the neck. These are perfect for traveling as well. Pack this in your carry-on for your next flight or when going on a road trip this winter.

Boot socks are so much fun when wearing combat boots, duck boots and rain boots. I personally love the layering look when wearing shorter style boots, it just gives you a more stylish look. My favorite shorter boot this winter are duck boots (here, here, and here).
