#1. The knit pom beanie
Some call them knit pom beanies, others call them bobble hats (or whatever other name there is)- many different types, all equally adorable. I am head-over-heels in love with all sorts of knit pom beanies this season. There are just so many unique designs and colors to choose from! They’re useful for bad hair days(for when you didn’t wash your hair-oops), and they can be used to keep your head and ears warm. What is there not to like?

#2. Knit half finger gloves
I cannot leave the house without my black knit half finger gloves. They’re so warm and comfy yet so chic and grunge-looking. They can be put together with absolutely any outfit, I can assure you. Half finger gloves instantly add the coolness to a too-preppy outfit. But remember not to go too far with the grunge look. That’s actually the tricky thing with this item. You can drop from ‘skater dude’ to ‘homeless beggar who hasn’t taken a shower in months’ with just the tiniest detail.
These can be found in loads of little stores, online and offline. Here are some pics for ideas on what type to get.

#3. Simple scarves
I usually like wearing intricate patterns with nice blends of color tones, but this winter I realized how chic a simple uni-colored scarf could make you look! A simple scarf with the right color tone can really brighten up your whole outfit and shout out “IT’S WINTER!” Especially when you’ve toned down on your clothes and outerwear, a poppin’ bright colored statement scarf can look chic and fashionable. It also looks really effortless at the same time.
I usually wear brown, red, dark green, turquoise, or black.

#4. Leather bracelets
In the Spring, they looked tacky. In Summer, it looked a bit too dark and heavy. In Autumn, eehh(something about it didn’t match the mood). But in Winter, THEY ARE FABULOUS! Who said leather bracelets were for guys?? Girls can totally rock the look, too. I have a few leather bracelets of my own that I collected over the years, and I typically just grab one before rushing out of the house every day. Black leather bracelets with studs(rock n’ roll!), intwined brown-toned leather bracelets(beach!), or simple leather bracelets made of one single strap of dyed leather… whichever it may be, they look great in Winter. But be careful-wearing a bracelet that doesn’t match the clothes is worse than not wearing the bracelet!
You can go through the DIY process if you want them to look a specific way.
#5. Ankle boots
Thigh-high boots(https://konnikim.wordpress.com/2013/12/22/past-trends-of-2013-a-walk-down-memory-lane/) are receiving so much attention lately that nobody really seems to realize how cute ankle boots can look. Ankle boots are convenient for every occasion, which just makes them that much more sexy. I myself own a pair of lovely ankle boots which I wear around everywhere. So I’m speaking from real-life experience!
