Faux Fur Coats:

As it gets cold, it’s almost impossible to leave the house without a coat, so why not make a statement out of it? These jackets are animal friendly, warm, and are sure to wow everyone at the holiday parties. Whether you choose to stay with a neutral or go bold with a colorful pattern, there are no bad choices. Longer coats offer extra coverage against the wind with dresses, while shorter jackets can easily be dressed down or up.

Blazers:

Blazers are the perfect addition to any outfit and add trendiness to sharpen up any look. This tomboyish jacket is great over anything from button ups to t-shirts. Suitwear was a huge trend in the 80’s and 90’s, but it has made a comeback this year as blazers can be worn as an extra layer or seen standing alone in dress-like styles.

White Boots:

White seems to be the new ‘it’ color for shoes, so get ready to trade your summer white sneakers this winter for their beloved sister, the white boots. While the ground may not be covered in snow, bring a splash of white with every step you take until then. Since these shoes are a neutral color, the pairing options are endless. Wear them with dark colors to make them pop, or keep it casual and wear as you would with white sneakers. The options are endless!

Dusters:

Dusters are lengthy, floor grazing light jackets that come in a variety of fabrics. While they may not offer lots of warmth, dusters are the perfect throw-on to spice up any outfit. The kimono like style is more of a long sweater, which can be perfectly paired over a short dress for a great length difference, or worn casually over jeans. Light sweater styles, or silky fabrics add a touch of personality and there seems to be a duster in any color or pattern imaginable to find one that fits you best.

Baker boy Caps:

No matter if you call it the Baker Boy hat, newspaper boy, page boy, or fishermen cap, there’s no denying this hat is the must-have accessory of the season. While it may be all over your Instagram feed, it can be difficult to decide if this should actually be added to your closet. This cute, classic hat definitely should as it is the perfect addition to any outfit, adding a tomboy twist to chic style. Worn with a chunky sweater, this can be seen as laid-back while adding a chic touch to a more dressed up outfit.
