You’ve seen them everywhere… and for good reason. These fluffy holiday accessories are glamorous and vintage-inspired but still totally modern.

Add them to your favorite winter coat for an affordable fashion makeover, or buy a couple of stoles in a color pop and a neutral shade for extra versatility.

3. Wraps & Ponchos

When the temperature dips below freezing, you obviously want to reach for your warmest outerwear.

But winter has its fair share of mild days, and a toasty wrap is the ideal topper for those occasional moments of fall-like weather.

Drape a blanket scarf over your shoulders, add a belt, and look like you stepped right out of a Pinterest board.

Going from a day look to a special occasion? A poncho can disguise sexy tops until you’re ready for the big reveal.

4. Statement Jewelry
