1. Ugg boots

Perennially popular, genuine, high quality ugg boots (such as emu uggs) are an essential in your winter wardrobe. Made from genuine sheepskin, ugg boots will keep your feet warm and, because they are now available in a great range of colours and styles, you are sure to find a pair that enhances your personal style and fashion preferences. Visit a reputable retailer, such as MiniJumbuk, to find a pair of Ugg boots that suits your personality.

No longer a fashion faux pas, ugg boots are internationally popular and worn by everyone from the person next door to high-end fashionistas. Without question, ugg boots are a key accessory and a fundamental inclusion for your winter wardrobe. They will keep your feet warm and on-trend and, when you invest in a high quality pair of ugg boots, there’s a good chance that you will be wearing them for many seasons to come.

2. Beanies

Not only are beanies cosy, they are also an important fashion accessory. Beanies in bright colours and patterns can instantly lift an outfit and add vibrancy to your look. In colours such as greys, blacks and navy, a beanie can add a sophisticated edge and complement or draw attention to particular aspects of your outfit.

3. Bags

Have you noticed that contemporary fashion is all about the bag? For winter, white accessories (such as handbags and satchels) can lighten up a dark ensemble. Even if you don’t want to do all white, think about bags and other accessories that feature a little white in patterns such as snakeskin or leopard print.

To accessorise well with bags, you don’t have to spend a lot of money. There are some amazing pieces available at very affordable prices that can strengthen and add interest to your overall look.

4. Scarfs and wraps

This winter, make sure you have a gorgeous scarf or wrap around your neck, keeping it warm and enhancing your look. You may be surprised by how much difference a gorgeous scarf or neck wrap can make to your outfit while keeping you warm and comfortable. Scarfs and wraps also offer the added benefit of being a simple, easy way to change up an outfit and add variety, while offering a unique take on an ensemble you may have already worn that week.

5. Sunglasses

It may be the winter we’re talking about, but it is still a perfect season to bring out some bold, fun sunglasses. Wearing sunglasses in a bold colour such as green, orange, red or purple can instantly add glamour and interest to your outfit. Consider sunglasses that feature an unusually shaped frame (such as geometric shapes) or that have an unusual, fun pattern.

Add these accessories to your winter wardrobe to not only be warm and well-protected for the season, but also to look on-trend while keeping your wardrobe interesting.

Guide to Accessorizing Strapless Dresses

Strapless dresses with length are a great way to look stylish and chic while also covering up any areas of your body that you are self-conscious about. Long strapless dresses can make you look long and lean and are also the perfect canvas to wear some of your favorite accessories with. However, when you are in front of your mirror adding a few accessorizing touches to your favorite long strapless dress you will want to follow these few guidelines so that you don’t overdo it and detract from the elegance of your dress.

Take a Look at Your Dresslong

Before you put your dress on, hang it up on a hanger in front of your closet or lay it out on your bed. Take a good look at your dress and picture yourself wearing it so that you can visualize what types of accessories would look best with the dress. For example, long cocktail dresses only need a few poignant accessories while you can get away with more accessories of a bolder nature with a long dress that is more casual. Take into account the style and general look of the strapless dress before you start adding accessories.

Look at the Details

Many long dresses have details that add to their style and simplicity. When you accessorize, take the detail of the dress into account. If the details on the dress are extremely intricate or the dress has a large or bold pattern, you will want to stay away from large or flashy accessories. However, if the long dress is relatively simple, feel free to accessorize to your heart’s content.

Consider a Necklace

One way to add to the long lean look of a strapless dress that reaches the ground is to add a necklace. This will not only add to this dress, but it will draw viewer’s attention to your face and bare shoulders. If the neckline of your dress is lower, then opt for a necklace that comes close to the top of your neck. For strapless dresses with a higher neckline, wear a necklace that is longer and goes down beyond the top of the dress.

Go for Earrings

If you want to keep your neckline open, consider using earrings to draw attention towards your face. To allow the earrings to make a statement, do your hair up in an elegant hairstyle if you are attending a formal event. If you are wearing the strapless dress to run errands, go to lunch, or attend a more casual event, wear your hair up in a ponytail or high bun.

Pair it with a Jacket or Scarf

Jewelry is not the only type of dress accessory that goes well with strapless dresses. If it’s chilly outside, pair your dress with a cropped jacket, scarf, or shawl to keep warm. Wearing something on top of your dress will also help you feel more comfortable about your choice of attire if you are attending an event that is more conservative in nature.

Whatever the type of dress you are wearing or the event that you are attending, don’t be afraid to make your outfit stand out by accessorizing!

Review: Trakline Intrepid Belt

When it comes to men’s belts everyone thinks that they are built basically the same, but Trakline has come up with an innovation in the closure system that makes it a unique alternative to the worn out holes in your leather belt. At KORE Essentials, they take a quality grain leather belt and sew in a track along the inside that allows the belt to be adjusted up to 40 positions, in ¼ inch increments, making it a sort of ratchet belt.

The belt buckles come in stylish, modern metals and have the ability to open quickly with a release tab underneath. At KORE Essentials, they make belts that will mesh with both casual and dress clothes, but have a “futuristic” technology that makes them just as much about function, as fashion.

Trakline Belt patented buckle technology-min

One of the biggest advantages of this automatic belt is that if you happen to gain a few pounds or lose some, then the Trakline Belt will adjust in seconds, as opposed to boring holes in the leather with a knife yourself. Everyone has had that expensive belt that you bought and find that at some time, it just doesn’t fit like it used to. Nothing is more frustrating to spend good money on luxury accessories and have to leave them hanging in the closet. At KORE, they have solved that problem for you.Intrepid nickel buckle, black belt-min

Trakline Belts give you the choice of white, brown, black, and gray leather ratchet belts and you are then able to pair them with modern belt buckles in stainless steel that come in sleek geometric cut outs, or if you prefer, you can have the solid belt buckle style. The prices range from $49.99 to $59.99, which is a great price for a belt that has the newest technology, as well as a great look.
