When you're bundled up in a zillion layers in the winter, all the pressure is put on your accessories to make your outfit really shine. They bring out the "extra" side in everyone—the more glitz and glam the better, in my opinion. And this season especially, the shoes, bags, and jewelry on offer are about as extra as they come. Slip on a pair of strappy crystal heels for your next night out or add glittery chandelier earrings to your simplest sweater-and-jeans look. But even if you're into something more subdued, luxe jewelry staples like chain-link necklaces and chunky rings offer the perfect update.
Whatever vibe you're on these days, add in one (or multiple) of the below hats, bags, shoes, necklaces, and rings to your cold-weather outfit rotation and witness the magic of compliments, inquiries, and double-taps rolling in. Without further ado, scroll on to discover six epic winter accessory trends that you'll regret not trying.
Crystal-adorned heels are the wow factor your next night out needs. Slip them on with tights and a party dress to really let them take center stage.
Meet your new everyday necklace. These days, fashion girls are opting for just one or a few of these more substantial pieces in lieu of thin stacks.
The '90s are constantly being reinvented in new ways each year. Right now, it's the cropped-in shoulder bags that are legit everywhere we look.
Forget dainty, barely there rings—it's all about the more weighty look these days. Go for sculptural style or dome rings that can hold their own and hardly need much more styling.
Bucket hats aren't going anywhere. You, me, and everyone else owned one in the summer, but now they're being reinvented in luxe textures and bright, unexpected colorways. Consider swapping your knit beanie for a fuzzy bucket hat this winter.
Chandelier earrings are the ultimate in glam, but you don't have to reserve them for a night out only. Wear them alongside knits and trousers to amp up your everyday outfits. It will make for an unexpected (and mood-lifting) addition.
