Winter Style Trends: 3 Accessories to Try in 2016
When a year ends, a lot of times we look back on the main happenings that molded us throughout the past 365-or-so days. Some moments stick out as grin-bearing bouts of happiness, whereas others we see as trials that made us stronger. And if you’re anything like the other fashionistas out there, chances are pretty good that you’ve also recounted your style over the year. Perhaps you took more risks than ever before, or you really fell in love with bohemian chic and never let it go.
Some fashion memories are proud ones—like the time you paired that printed skirt with that striped top and totally rocked it. But there are some other instances at which you shake your head. Don’t worry about the fashion blips. That’s why a new year is not only great for leaving behind the questionable life decisions, but it’s also the perfect opportunity to forget about those questionable fashion decisions, too.
And with that, I bring you three of the top winter accessories to be trending this winter. For a great wardrobe to bring in the new year… Try one (or all!) of these accessories:
A Fun Beanie
Brimmed hats are practically dime a dozen at this point. Head into the new year paying homage to the first winter hat you ever owned: the beanie. Beanies these days have fun, modern twists that are totally worth the hat hair. Just check out all the ways the women from Harper’s Bazaar sport their own styles in beanie form. You’re bound to fall in love with one!

Sexy Thigh High Boots
Your snow boots will work just fine for the days you’re out running errands. But when day turns to night and you need some show-stopping footwear to bring the vibe to a whole new level? Well, you should lace up in some supremely sexy boots that hit just over the knee. Seen on a slew of celebrities, thigh highs that you can tie are the next step to fierce winter fashion. Even this page on Lyst says you should “up the glamour factor” with wedge or heeled styles.
Faux Fur Stole
In case you haven’t noticed, fur is one of the hottest fabrics this season. The fur vest has been basking in its moment this fall, but with winter just about to head into full force, now is the time to find a fur scarf or stole before the snow gets too thick. And not to worry, as explained here by Fashionisers, fur stoles also come in faux options, AKA “furless furs as Stella McCartney likes to call them.”
