So I for one am happy about the extended summer weather we enjoyed over September and part of October, but now that we are in single digits let’s not be depressed about it, let’s get excited about the new winter accessories we can add to our wardrobe to keep warm and cozy- and oh yeah, look chic too!
Here are my top winter accessory trends for 2017 as seen on the runways:
Hat’s On! Has there been a better season for hats in recent memory? Nope! As Vogue put it: “toppers are topping the list of accessories to have”. And ladies, the best part of wearing a hat is not worrying about your hair that day Felt fedoras, cozy toques and fashion baseball styles are some of our favourites.
All Ears! Loving that big bold dangly earrings are all the rage right now. And statement earrings do just that- they make a statement. So you don’t need to fuss with much else around them. They look especially amazing with bare shoulders and necks.
Fur Puffs Everywhere! The warm fuzzies have infiltrated fashion. Fur charms are all over bags and shoes; and fur trim details on hats and scarves too.
Proper Purses. Even the most eclectic dresser needs a practical purse. Structured bags are a must this winter- when everything else is over the top: big, bold, furry and dangly-we must have one sensible piece to keep all our bits in order.
So STYLEARTIST friends, this winter throw on a toque (with a fur pom), hang a fur charm on your bag and wrap yourself up in a cashmere scarf- and be cozy chic!
Till the next time, Catherine
