5 Items to Spruce Up your Winter Wardrobe

Style Tips

It’s the dead of winter and your wardrobe is in need of a serious refresh - I get it. We’ve been rocking the same black sweater over and over, and now it’s time to breath new life into your wardrobe.

Finding the 'it' items of the season can be confusing and difficult to nail, but I have some suggestions that are sure to spruce up your winter wear.

Here are 5 'it" items to spruce up your wardrobe this winter!

1. Oversized Blazer

The blazer has always been a style staple as it can pull together almost any and every look. But as of this season, the oversized blazer has stolen the show and has become every blogger and fashionistas go to-piece. Just as practical and classy, the oversized blazer can actually be more versatile than it's 'basic' blazer counterpart. Wear it over a dress for a midi coat look or with skirts or shorts for an effortless outfit. I'd suggest opting for a black double breasted blazer for work and a white or plaid blazer for play!

2. Thigh-High Socks

You really can't go wrong with more layers in the winter, which is why the thigh-high sock is a definite 'it' item this winter. And don't be fooled, the thigh-high sock can be dressed up or down. It's just all about what you pair them with! I'd recommend dressing up your thigh-high socks with a pair of chic leather booties, and a skirt and turtleneck. Finish your look with an oversized blazer for a real trendy look and you're ready to hit the town!

3. Not-So-Basic Bobby Pins

Throw away those basic black bobby pins and say hello to hair clips that add a touch of glam and make a statement! This season, chic hair accessories have made their way into women's hair and I’m opting for wavy gold bobby pins to pull together all the gold accessories in my outfit. If you're more of a “bling bling” type of girl, you can choose bobby pins with tons of glitter and glam. If you want to make small statement, choose silver bobby pins for just a little bit of oomph.

4. Printed Tights

One 'it' item that I’m also loving are printed tights. From celebrities to influencers, you can catch printed tights on almost everyone! You can choose any print that suits your style, or better yet, your mood. Now that the month of love has arrived, I decided to rock my From Rachel Heart Print Tights. I also love the Sheer Floral Polka Dot Tights for a romantic date night look and Black Polka Dot Tights for an everyday look! And of course, don't forget to layer your tights with leg warmers, boot cuffs and thigh-high socks!

5. Asymmetrical Earrings

Would you believe me if I told you asymmetrical earrings are a major 'it' item this season too? Well, they are! And I think they're a pretty cool way to step up your jewelry game and make a statement too. If you've been nervous to try a new trend and want to start small, I say do it with these earrings. They're fun and trendy without being over-the-top.
