scarf is key to your wardrobe this season and can be worn after the coat comes off! It is the perfect accessory!! A thick textured “Infinity” scarf by Paula Bianco will keep you warm & chic or wrap around an amazing silk patterned scarf by Tolani. A great trend this season is a tasseled look wether on your scarf or jewelry.

sweater coat or open cardigan looks great paired with your favorite skinny jean and a bootie shoe. It’s a perfect piece for apres ski as well!  Joie clothing makes an amazingly thick cotton blend sweater called the “Levella” that you won’t want to take off. A more budget friendly piece by Olive & Oak is another fabulous option & sleeveless so you can show off your tissue tee or patterned silk top underneath.  Feeling fashion forward? Opt for a Joie faux fur vest over your favorite tee or sweater!!

denim shirt or plaid shirt like the options we have from Current/Elliott worn over a pair of dark jeans or skinny cords is the perfect addition to your outfit & gives you a casual yet put-together look.

Choose a long necklace to go over your favorite tissue tee by day and then over a cocktail dress for a more formal event. Chan Luu makes amazing necklaces this season using semi-precious stones & chinese crystals. Another great & more casual designer is Vanessa Mooney who hand-crafts her pieces in California and uses silver & gold metal topped with turquoise & lapis stones. Another designer that uses different textures and stones is Serefina and her pieces are handmade in San Francisco, CA. Just one necklace comes with multiple layers of it’s own!

Of course all of these things need a great pair of jeans to go with them! Choose a waxed skinny from Current/Elliott or go for a distressed look with their tattered black denim. Hudson Jeans makes fashion pieces but also a great go-to for a medium denim wash in skinny or bootcut. On a budget? Try an amazing denim from Blank NYC that never retails over $100!!
