While fashion in general is an ever evolving matter, there are some pieces of clothing and accessories that you simply need to pay more attention to and really invest in both time and money. These are mainly pieces that you would combine with all your clothes and shoes and would consider wearing on multiple occasions. Talking about winter season, these would include your winter equipment for cold weather such as a scarf, gloves, hat, the never-getting-old poncho and a good quality handbag winter style.
However, just because this is a set of ladies fashion accessories winter can’t pass without, it doesn’t mean you should get whatever you first stumble upon in stores or online offers. Instead, decide you’re going to invest a little more this time in the name of quality, durability and timeless sophistication.
A good quality scarf made of cashmere or high quality cotton is the type of accessory you first think of when you leave the house for any occasion; whether it’s to protect your neck from the cold wind or to place it over your shoulders along with a nice dress for a night out, we all reach for it. You should have exactly three scarf styles in your ladies fashion accessory closet: one mono-coloured (make it either black, beige or red), one with print of your choice (leopard, flowers or something similar) and one completely decorated with either letters, geometric figures or some other colourful design.
The only type of gloves that is worth investing a considerable amount of money in, are leather gloves. Leather goes well with everything and every style, even sport elegance. Make sure you get two pairs: one mono-coloured, preferably black or dark brown, and one colourful, maybe red or beige. General rule of styling: don’t go for colours with short life span on things you want to last for a lifetime.
3. A hat
While the beanie is the all-times accessory connected with winter, it’s not the type of hat you can wear as the ultimate style element. As a styling addition to your combination, you need a wide brim hat; one made of a warm, cozy material that screams winter warmth, preferably in black or beige. The hat needs to be easy to combine with your handbag and shoes, so don’t wander too much with the colours.
4. A poncho
The poncho has always been present on the fashion scene; it’s just that these last few seasons it’s a little more trending than ever. Wear it over a very warm knitwear, or over a leather jacket; the poncho’s purpose is to provide a stylish and very fashionable cover as well as protection from wind and cold weather. Have in mind you’ll have to combine the poncho with your leather jacket, your boots and handbag, so make sure you pick one in beige or black and use it for more than one season.
5. The handbag
No confusion here – a good quality handbag with a sturdy construction and a good material like leather for instance, is a no-discussion topic when it comes to investing in clothes. Just make sure you pick one in a colour you can combine with most of your shoes, jackets and other accessories and do not compromise on the quality just to save a few dollars. Trust me, that would be a terrible waste of money.
