Fashion & Accessories

By Patricia Wersinger

To help carry me through the dreariness of the coldest season, fashion is always my favorite remedy. Finding novel items that are versatile and endowed with charm keeps my eyes always peeled and ready. Whether you are looking for unique items to wear on a special winter night or everyday pieces to fight the winter blues, these picks will do the trick.

The glamorous Widow Veiled Cap adds an air of mystery and intrigue to an evening look. The simple beanie hat knit fits snuggly on the head and has an on-trend Pom Pom in faux fur. Perfect for the faux-demure Belle out on the town on a cold winter night. Available in black or white at or in New York City at Henri Bendel.

Native motifs are popular this season. This Gaga Feathered Jewel Strand mixes Native American style with eighties Vintage rhinestones for an ingenious twist on a classic. Prima Donna started off as a chain of New York-based stores and just launched their e-commerce site this fall. They offer trendy and cool handbags, jewelry, shoes, scarves and tech accessories at a very reasonable price. Wear this ice inspired piece night or day under a black cardigan, with a chic silk shirt or any weekend club gear. Find many more contemporary jewelry looks of the season at

I love the casualness of this easy versatile Cali Clutch from Ecco in smooth cow leather. Its European contemporary design features a key ring strap, an outside pocket with a zipper and two extra pockets inside, one of them with another zipper. Perfect for many winter looks including afternoon tea in a bohemian café or a night on the town. Available at

To brighten up cold winter days you can always count on Desigual to add good vibes. This Dominika Scarf in 100% cotton is colorful, snug and soft on the neck. You can roll and style it in different ways to fit your mood and occasion. It adds a splash of color to any look. Available at

Keep a pair of these bright quirky Kate Spade x Keds around for casual holiday parties “en famille” or for effortless winter days strolling through the park. Beautiful details include Keds signature and versatile printed canvas with a retro-inspired foxing stripe. They are extremely flexible and comfortable thanks to the cushionable insole. Available in red or blue mariner stripe.

In these unpredictable winter temperatures oscillating between arctic cold and warm drifts, you need different options to cruise through the season, whether you are a fashion bombshell, a prep queen or a style maverick. Embrace these cozy and sartorially on-point styles for all your wintry occasions.
