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 http://www.bexnyc.com/ 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.
