Seasonal Fashion: Head Start on Winter

Want to get a fresh head start on winter fashion? Well get ready to fill your closet! These are some of my favorite clothing, makeup, and accessory items that will definitely meet your splurging needs for a low price, and fill your closet with items you'll be using all winter.

First category is clothes. I love blues, whites and silvers and mixing them all together makes the perfect fall-to-winter transition. Be sure to add some patterns to your outfits, like patterned jeans, shirts or jackets. The first item is this amazing white blouse from H&M. I love the lace detailing because it's simple and can be paired with some bright or patterned jeans. I think this top is great for winter because it incorporates white, and is lightweight, so you could easily layer a fitted black blazer, and it would still fit under a warm winter jacket. This shirt can also be used for spring, because the light fabric is easy to use for lots of seasons. The blouse is available for only $29.95 at H&M. To me that's a pretty good deal for a shirt you can wear all season long. I will definitely show some ways to wear it on my Polyvore account; I hope that helps with ways to style this shirt, and be sure to show me how you would dress up this shirt. This item is definitely one of my winter must haves as a blouse that is easy to dress up or dress down, and I think that having this in your closet will definitely benefit your 'don't know what to wear' days. It's go to fashion item that I love.
Next category? Makeup!! My go to makeup items in winter vary, but I really am loving EOS lip balm, because it is so soothing to your lips and easy to apply because it has a little ball applicator. This is only $4.29 at my local CVS, but it may vary depending on where you go. I think this product is inexpensive and totally worth purchasing. I carry it in my purse all the time!
Still in the makeup category is my top favorite mascara of winter. The Maybeline Great Lash mascara in Blackest Black. I love this product because it doesn't clump that much and doesn't leave any mascara on the tip of the brush. I think that this product is great and I am very happy that I purchased it. I bought it at Target for $4.44, and that's a very good deal for such an amazing product. I especially like this product because my favorite part of my face is my eyelashes, so I love finding good mascara at low prices.I definitely recommend this product if you're looking for a good mascara to darken your eyes. It is amazing!
Next is accessories!! I love the Alex and Ani bracelets! I own the silver heart charm and I really want a new one. They are so pretty and you can make them dressy and elegant, or casual and chic. These bracelets range in price, but I think they're under $50 each at most stores. My bracelet was a gift, so I can't tell how much it costs because I don't know, but it ranges. I think they are worth the money, and I would definitely pay it for another one.
The go to accessory this winter will always be cute scarves. I especially love gauzy, lightweight fabric for the warmer days, and cozy flannels for the cold. As long as the fabric is what you want, you can totally play around with colors. Mixing deep browns with soft beige and reds, or whites and silvers with light blues and grays. Some scarves also include fringe at the end, and that's also a really nice detail that gives some flair. I especially love Remington scarves, because they have especially gauzy fabric with fringe at the edges. I bought a white one at my local Target for $10, so they are pretty cheap. Just be careful not to snag it on anything, because it's a very delicate fabric. This is definitely one of my favorite accessories for winter, and they come in so many colors and styles, so I definitely love scarves.
I hope these tips helped you, and I will definitely be posting more about the holidays, and winter fashion. Be sure to check out my blog for new posts every week!
