Wintry Accessories for the Season
Posted by Emily
Accessories play a crucial part in any wardrobe. Even the most basic outfit can be turned into many different looks simply by adding a scarf, choosing some statement making earrings, or keeping it simple and chic with a classic necklace. Often times we think that our clothes must be the trendiest options possible, which leaves us with a closet filled with items that we get tired of quickly. With good basics to begin and a great selection of accessories that are a mix of trendy and classic, your options are endless!
Hats are a fun way to switch things up in the fall and for winter months to add some style to your outfit. Old Navy has a great selection no matter what color or fit you are looking to rock.
When I popped in Altar’d State I found a wall of classic caps and I don’t think you can ever go wrong with those. Perfect to cover up crazy and/or dirty hair, too and who doesn’t love that?!
In terms of scarves, I tend to stick with a classic black and white or a great floral. Old Navy had many to choose – any style and texture you are looking to add to your collection. The leopard print caught my eye because it looks great mixed with a buffalo check, a plaid, floral, and stripe – I basically use it as a neutral in my closet because it’s versatile with many patterns.
Now, when it comes to jewelry I am a bracelet girl through and through, but in the winter my wrists tend to be covered with long sleeves and coats, so I gravitate more towards earrings. I love a simple stud for everyday and Altar’d State definitely didn’t disappoint! They have so many great jewelry pieces to choose from – everyday, dressy, and some that can go either way depending on the outfit. Also, I have learned from many friends who rock this classic – you can’t ever go wrong with a hoop earring! I especially love them with a turtleneck or mock neck.
If you find yourself looking for necklaces they have a great selection of The Giving Keys (always a fabulous gift idea!) and plenty of pieces you could layer or keep by themselves. Whether you are looking for a simple cross or a beaded necklace you can wear many ways, Altar’d State has you covered.
Another fun piece in the cooler months to bring a punch of color to your outfit are shoes. Never underestimate the power of a great colored or patterned flat or boot to bring a fun little something to any outfit. I especially love the black and white flat seen here with a floral or printed scarf. Just one or two pieces with personality can make any pretty basic bring the fun!
Old Navy definitely has the options when it comes to flats and boots. Make sure you check them out, friends.
I hope this helps as you look to be practical with your holiday outfit options and as you do some shopping for the holidays. Accessories are one of my favorite ways to switch up any outfit to bring it from drab to fab and are also my go-to gifts to give. When you take the time to think about the person you are shopping for it can become a very personal touch to give them a new piece to rock!
