Accesorize. Sounds easy enough. Actually accessorizing is a little more time consuming then picking a blouse, skirt or matching shoes. A nice bracelet, necklace or earrings takes a bit more time to make sure that the accessory is complimentary to the outfit and adds to the outfit and does not take away from it. A dainty bracelet does wonder in regards to a casual outfit as opposed to a large chunky necklace which can make a casual errands outfit look not so casual. At true fashionistas know that accessories are necessary and never to execessive. Why? Earring, rings, and even anklets almost always have some place in your outfit choice. Accesorize is not a overbearing statement, it can make a smile for a great outfit put together even bigger. 


Warm weather boots look fantastic with a matching handbag. Think about your accessories when you pick that outfit to wear. Your handbag can be a statement piece and make your outfit even trendier. 


Ear muffs, yes ear muffs. The weather is colder and you can still have that gorgeous hairdo shown to the world. Headphones worn, make the thought easier of course. Or maybe you know that ear muffs are a great way to keep the cold air away from your ears while making sure your accessories match your scarf, gloves and muffler. Think about the concept the next time you pick out a few warm weather accessories. 


Windy days cause for windy wear. Try a nice zippered jacket or a coat and a stylish scarf that will prevent flyaway hair. Also, it would be a great idea to use a crossbody bag. 


Colder weather equals warmer fashion. Don't forget the matching scarf when you decide to wear those stylish gloves. Also, your handbag can be placed on your shoulder (if it has a shoulder strap) so that you can keep your hands warm.
