Accessories to take your winter wear up a notch

My name is Jasmin and I started blogging as a way to share my love and passion for fashion & beauty. I am also obsessed with fitness, traveling, reading, food & wine.

It is so easy to get into a winter fashion slump; there is nothing festive, exciting or sexy about layers, coats, hats and gloves... until now! Wintertime is now the easiest season to look extra chic, and strut your stuff like you are at New York Fashion Week. With these easy, inexpensive accessories you will appear to be unfazed by this winter weather.

Capes and ponchos

Louise Aztech Blanket Cape (, $16)
Topshop Colorblock Geometric Cape (Nordstrom, $60)
Alfani Poncho Turtleneck Sweater (Macy's, $40)

Capes and ponchos are a great way to add drama to a look. They add volume and texture to your look and provide that extra layer of warmth. Be sure to keep the rest of your outfit sleek, slimming and streamlined since the cape will provide plenty of volume! You can see how I've worn mine here, here, and here.


Echo 'Touch Colorblock' Gloves (Nordstrom, $36)
Polka Dot Gloves (Topshop, $48)
Carolina Amato Short Leather Gloves (, $45)

Never let your hands go cold with these fashion-forward statement gloves. With so many tech-friendly options you have no excuse for cold hands and even more of a reason to let your hands do the talking.

Blanket scarves

Black and Plaid Blanket Scarf (Purple Peridot, $20)
V. Fraas Houndstooth Print Blanket Scarf (Dillard's, $29)
Aerie Blanket Scarf (American Eagle, $30)

With so many ways to wear these iconic blanket scarves you can't go wrong. Who doesn't want to walk out of the house wrapped in a blanket? If you've never rocked one before, here are two ways that I love to wear blanket scarves.

Pom-pom beanies

Katie Faux Fur Pom Pom Chunky Beanie (, $10)
Zella Chunky Knit Beanie (Nordstrom, $34)
Girls' Knit Pom Beanie (Target, $7)

Tone down your dressy look or embrace your casual side with an added pom-pom beanie; not only will your ears thank you but so will your fashion guru. Beanies have been all the rage for years; take it up a notch with an added pom-pom and you'll be having fun all winter long. Beanies are great because you can dress them up, or dress them down. Have fun with it!
