In the spirit of Christmas, I’ve decided to share a few of my fashionable faves in this post. Let’s dig in!
1. STATEMENT EYEWEAR
Sunnies and clear lenses have always been my go-to accessories, there’s no denying that. They’re such an easy and effortless way to add polish to an outfit, or to differentiate yourself from the crowd. In the Winter months we put away so many of our accessories in favor of outerwear and boots, but eyewear transitions from season to season. These standouts are a few of my faves:
Flared Visor, Hindsight Square, Pared Cat Eye, Chanel Shield, Crawford Tort, Gucci Square, Oliver Peoples
2. THE PERFECT TOPPERS
Thankfully, I’ve always had a good head for hats! I fell in love with this plush faux fur cabby hat the minute I laid my hands on it at the Forever21 store in Bethesda. It has a great ’90’s vibe going that I’m really into now. Plus it keeps my “thinker” warm and cozy. Fashionable and functional!
Western details were all over the runways earlier this year for the Autumn/Winter shows, and it’s been pretty hard to miss on the street (saddle bags, denim, the COWBOY BOOT!). This isn’t a trend I plan on investing too heavily in (it’s just not my aesthetic), but I love a good cowboy hat. The hat below is new in my online shop, Couture Diva. It’s not exactly a cowboy hat, but it has enough Western details that paired with a printed scarf and waist cinching belt, I’d be able to rock the trend without the expensive investment.

3. MISMATCHED EARRINGS
I don’t know what it is about this trend, but I’m really in love with it. The trend is a couple of seasons old, but what’s attracting me to it now is the playful, unexpected, funk factor it adds to my ensembles! Not sure how you’d pull it off? While there aren’t any hard and fast rules, the trick is symmetry. And a full length mirror! I hold the mismatched pair up to my ears (after I’m fully dressed), and allow my eye to determine if it will work for my style.

4. OUTERWEAR IN BOLD COLORS
Winter and bold colors don’t typically go hand in hand. It’s unexpected, and that’s why I love it. This oversized bright yellow “Security” raincoat was thrifted (and new) from one of the local Goodwill stores in my neighborhood, but here are a few colorful coats you might like too.
Teddy Bomber, Faux Fur, Animal Print Puffer, Double Faced Fur, Vinyl Puffer, Velvet Frock Coat, Leopard Print Mac, Flock Chain Puffer, Brushed Wool, Longline Check
What are some of your favorite things? Did any of mine make your list this year?
