Accessory Wonderland

For those of you in New York City (and in select parts of the East Coast), we're rejoicing at the return of true fall weather today after an unwelcome cold snap.  Even though a simple bomber or varsity jacket will do today, there's still a chic way to work in some cold weather accessories.  In the looks showcased here, I used a simple all black look to really showcase the accessories.  Infinity scarves add an element of drama to your winter look--they definitely keep you warm but also in style.  Fingerless gloves are my go-to because they keep my hands warm while still allowing me to function.  And choosing a pair in a statement color like burgundy adds an extra pop to your look.  Do what you need to do to stay warm but don't be afraid to take some risks with color and design.  Cold weather accessories can do so much more for you than simply warm you up-they can make or break your look!
