Scarves are stylish yet a fully functional item. Not only do they add texture to an outfit but will keep you warm and give you a sense of coziness. I have been eyeing this one from Acne which I’m so glad I decided to pick up. I don’t mind investing in an accessory if it will be used often. This particular style is a classic shape and basic color that will go with any thing in my closet. The scarf itself is very well made and long enough to wrap around my neck a few times.
You know those shitty snow days that tend to ruin your hair? Yep, thats when I really appreciate the beanie (they also keep my ears warm). They can really make an outfit look really casual and this year I’ve discovered cashmere, what the hell took me so long?! This hat from COS is so soft and I’m obsessed with the speckled print. I placed an order for a few more basic colors and its a great essential to have during the cold months.
I do love a good tailored blazer. I think it can smarten up any type of look whether you’re wearing trousers, BF jeans or even sweatpants. I also like to use this in place of a jacket and just layer sweaters or hoodies underneath. The key is to layer thin pieces to avoid it bulkiness or feeling restricted. I purchased the one in this photo from Zara in the sale about 1yr ago and it still looks brand new!
In my opinion ankle boots can be worn all year round but still a staple nonetheless! Now I’ve been through my fair share of booties and I must say that these Acne Jensen boots are the best investment I’ve added to my line-up. They’re very pricey but I saved up my pennies and placed my order, no regrats (not a typo, you’ll understand if you’ve seen “We’re The Millers”). I would say the boots are true to size and stretch a bit. I went for the grain leather vs. the smooth so that the creases would be less visible after wear.
I remember as a kid thinking only grandmas wear ugly turtlenecks… dumbass kid. Hair tucks have made the turtleneck chic and cool. I also like to layer them under crewneck sweaters, buttoned shirts or a thicker long-sleeved top. I received a few questions about the one I wore in my October Favs video which is from a brand called Everlane. The quality of their items are amazing and if you sign up you’ll receive free shipping off your first order. I own a few other pieces from the brand, totally worth looking into if you’re a basics lover like myself!
