Winter Accessory – Faux Fur

19 Nov

Scarves are usually a good investment even if they were slightly expensive ones. That’s because they tend to be a carried on item from season to season & year after year. It’s like a never-fading trend- despite the color, texture or style. Personally, I own around 40 scarves that I collected over the years. Some of them go back to my undergraduate years! Please don’t ask when was that :$

However, this season a new addition to scarves was introduced.  Fur is rocking this Winter & we see it big in vests, jackets & scarves… I need to stress that it’s important to make sure that the ones we decide to buy are faux fur regardless how big or small the item is… No need to kill to get warm and fashionable… Let’s be sensible!

Checkout some of the faux fur scarves availble in stores…

Winter Accessory – Knitted Scarves

18 Nov

Almost all of us, at least once in our lives, have received a knitted item from our grandmas, moms, aunties… It’s usually a cute gift, very personal & with an effort behind it. In the past, knitted items were mainly hand-made & that sort of limited creativity & designs. Nowadays, knitting machines are producing beautiful products decorated with many details such as ruffles, extra crochet touches, color combinations…

Knitted scarves are easy to wear, warm, cozy and super comfortable. Lately, we have been seeing a large beautiful range of unique & modern scarves… It’s a simply a must have Winter accessory for both slightly warm & cold Winters.

The festive season is approaching; scarves could be a nice gift for your friends. With around 40 options below, I’m sure you will be able to find a couple that you will love 😉

Must Have Winter Accessory

17 Nov

Yayyyy, it’s finally time to update our wardrobes with the new season’s outfits! Change is good, refreshing, not to mention that it gives us a valid excuse to… hmmmm… shop! 😉

In the past, winter clothes were associated with dark colors; black, grey, navy blue and rarely burgundy.  I used to hate winter clothes for that but nowadays, designers are injecting more colors into their Winter collections and metallics are leading this season! 

Since it doesn’t really get that cold here, it’s sometime tricky to mix and match… Mastering layering is essential & helps you to stay away from the boring Winter looks. However, it can make accessorizing harder, hence I like to focus on the winter accessory; scarves.

Aside from the fact that they really help in keeping us warm, scarves add an elegant touch to any outfit. Bright scarves light up an outfit, silk ones are very classy for a formal look, knitted ones are cozy & designed cashmere ones can become THE outfit!  

I’m starting my posts on scarves with the animal print ones… Stay tuned for more 😉

Ankle Boots III

5 Nov
They add a style to anything from skirts to shorts, dresses to jeans and this season they are a must fashion accessory. My third choice of ankle boots are the lace up ones. 
 
Lace up ankle boots provide versatility and great comfort while maintaining a fashionable look. Although some look a bit masculine, the colors, textures, designs and heels break that boyish feel. 
 
I recently read that this fall/winter, we might be replacing our LBD for a Little Ankle Boot, do you agree?
