"Stripes are classic, but this year, a slightly oversize striped sweater (thanks to the Totême Instagram favorite) is the item that's giving new life to all our outfits. These sweaters look great with denim, dressier pants, and skirts. Add any shoe and you'll look stylish and on-trend."

Chocolate-Brown Items

"I love adding a trending color into my rotation, and brown is a color that we can't ever seem to get enough of. It's sophisticated and always elegant and pairs beautifully with both neutrals and brighter colors. Talk about versatile!"

Relaxed Trousers

"The popularity of relaxed, flowing trousers continues! While black is a good solid basic, look for lighter neutral colors for something a little different. The contrast with darker tops and sweaters is elegant and clean."

Embellished Shoes

"This appears to be a favorite trend right now: embellished party shoes. You might be surprised at how versatile they are … any time of year. Try a pair with an oversize white shirt and your favorite pair of jeans. So chic."

Printed Scarves

"Printed winter scarves are a favorite accessory. Even the most basic outfit will benefit from a little pattern—it just switches things up a bit. Look for luxurious silk scarves. They are so effortless and add a Parisian flair to your look."
