Choose a Sweater That’s Beyond Basic

Instead of wearing a basic everyday sweater, when you want to dress up your look, opt for an embellished sweater (like this one from Fabiana Filippi). A little glitz goes a long way with a sumptuous cashmere sweater that’s accented with sparkling sequins that catch the light. Paired with relaxed jeans that you can wear everywhere (like this straight-leg pair from MAC Jeans), this monochromatic look is anything but boring.

Find a Puffer Jacket That’s Actually Stylish

To be honest – most puffy jackets can make us feel more like the Michelin Man than anything. Finding a puffy jacket that’s actually stylish can often pose a challenge. Puffy jackets are a great way to stay warm and toasty, but truth be told – most on the market aren’t figure-flattering. 

When you finally find that Unicorn of puffy jackets – one that’s as chic as it is comfortable (like this short-sleeved quilter puffer jacket from Herno) – dressing for the cold becomes that much more fun. 

Add a Luxe Touch with a Designer Handbag

To add a luxe touch to your look, a stunning designer handbag (like this ombre crocodile bag with chain-link strap by Nancy Gonzalez) makes a sophisticated statement.

Both practical and stylish, a handbag like this can also double as a clutch, making it a versatile accessory. Plus, a rich texture and artistically-designed black-and-gray ombre effect make it even more unique and interesting.

Accent with Glamorous Jewelry

To elevate your casual everyday look, accent your outfit with glamorous jewelry.

All you need is a gorgeous pair of earrings (like these head-turning beaded tassel earrings from Oscar de la Renta) to instantly add drama and flair to any ensemble. Plus, since these ones are clip-on earrings, they won’t pull on your earlobes, making them easier and more comfortable to wear.

Add Edginess with Studded Boots

Add a little edginess with a pair of rhinestone-studded boots (like these custom-designed boots by Giuseppe Zanotti). Not only are boots comfortable for walking in (making them practical for everyday wear), a studded pair makes you look and feel like a rockstar (and who wouldn’t want that?!).

With the glam accents and fun embellishments, monochromatic neutrals are instantly transformed. For more style tips and inspiration, check out the Fashion & Style section on Inspirations & Celebrations.
