Trust Me: These Are the Luxury Accessories That Are Actually Worth the Money

If there's one thing I know to be true, it is that winter accessories are highly likely to be worn over and over, so spending a little more on them could be justified. 

If you're thinking that you'd like to delay planning for winter as much as possible, we completely get it. But someday soon, you're going to wake up, and the ground will be covered with snow, and that Toteme beanie you were thinking about ordering won't arrive until approximately five business days later. So instead of letting that predicament happen to you, why not think ahead? 

Plus, when you're wrapped up in layers, there's nothing better than a chic accessory to help elevate your cold-weather look.
