In most areas of the country, winter means temperatures that call for warm and cozy accessories. Wraps not only insulate; they can also kick an outfit up a notch with fashionable flair. Available in different colors, styles, widths and fabrics, wraps look great draped over shoulders with a cocktail dress or fixed in place with a crystal brooch over a dress shirt and pants for work.
Likewise, scarves come in a variety of colors, fabrics and styles. Outdoor options range from wool with fun pompom strings, to cashmere with glam sequin details. Indoor scarves are often used to complement a dress, a tunic with leggings or a great denim jacket. Silk scarves in geometric and animal prints are available, as well as solid knit infinity loops with fringe details. This chic houndstooth scarf from Charming Charlie looks great over a sweater or a coat!
Gloves are essential in cold weather, and they’re available in leather, wool, nylon and more. You can choose classic black or go with a splash of color. You can find solid colors, quilted designs, and gloves with details like beading or bows. Choose from wrist length, long ones that go up the arm or even fingerless options. Many are now available with technology tips on the forefinger and thumb so your gift’s recipient can still use their favorite devices without exposing their fingers to the cold!
Fashionistas love accessories that make a statement. A bold necklace can take a solid turtleneck to a whole new level for the holiday season. Necklaces featuring jewel tones, pastels, pearls or crystals will definitely earn compliments. Be sure to select one that has an extender on the clasp so the length can be adjusted based on preference or outfit.
Nothing says status like a classy watch, and you can’t beat the made-by-hand creations by the Shinola team in Detroit. These luxury watches come with either a leather strap or stainless steel bracelet, and you can choose between a variety of colors and watch face sizes. The wood box it’s presented in is so beautiful, all you’ll need is a shiny red bow.
Your best friend might have an amazing earring collection, but if you’re not sure what to get her, try an ear cuff! Take the guesswork out of choosing between a stud, chandelier or hoop earring – an ear cuff works with any style. Swirls, flowers, butterflies and more can be found in silver, gold, brass and stainless steel. This leaf style is handmade of sterling silver, and it’s available on Etsy.
Whether you have a high-end budget or you’re looking for something budget-friendly, handbags aren’t just a staple in a fashion lover’s wardrobe – they’re kind of a necessity. Ranging from small purses that hold only the essentials to large totes that can double as baby bags, sizes and styles run the gamut. However, something middle of the road with cross-body functionality will give her versatility in how she wears and uses the bag. A black bag is classic, but if your recipient tends to wear dark clothing, she just might love a bright or pastel bag to serve as a pop of color.
The holiday season is a time for black-tie affairs, family get-togethers and work parties. A clutch is a must-have with a party dress, but so many cute ones can’t hold more than a tube of lipstick. Buy a trendy oversized clutch that can handle a smartphone, makeup and car keys for a gift she’ll use for every special occasion.
A more personal item that can also hold goods is The Go Anywhere Trio from Henri Bendel. It’s made of coated canvas, so your gift’s recipient can tuck away accessories or toiletries at home when traveling. Featuring the designer’s signature brown and white stripes and custom illustrations from Izak, it screams affordable luxury at under $50.
Fancy-schmancy socks are all the rage, and why wouldn’t they be? Floral, striped, collegiate and cartoon-character socks let your gift’s recipient show off their style, or relax in the comfort of their home. No-show, ankle-length and knee-high styles are available in fabrics like cotton and terry that wash well and keep their fit.
Luxurious slippers keep feet warm, and with details like sequins and faux fur, her tootsies can look stylish even when stepping out to grab the morning newspaper.
Boots are a winter wardrobe standard, but a fun way to spice them up is to create a layered look with boot cuffs. Lace or crocheted cuffs can help keep legs warm if worn above the boot, or they can serve as a fashion statement by folding the cuff over the boot. What a great stocking stuffer!
