knitted and oversized white infinity scarf

Above, nothing beats a generously sized infinity scarf, and this winter white softie is pure heaven!  Pair it with other neutrals for a modern cold-weather look.  We all love our boots, but when the wind is blowing hard they can be a bit chilly. Layer with these cable knit boot cuffs in dark moss green (below, left). For the gal that answers her phone even in a blizzard, these teal cashmere gloves (below, right) have a handy feature--a textured index finger so that you don't have to take your gloves off to take a call.

Weekends spent skiing (or just sipping cocoa in the lodge)? We're jealous. But mostly because you now have the perfect excuse to wear this marled gray earband (below), a chic alternative to ear muffs.

The best thing about winter in undoubtedly all the sweaters. Use the post-holiday blues as an excuse to purchase something gloriously gray.  Above, this boatneck sweater with its interesting texture goes well with a pair of dark jeans and few accessories.  Looking for lighter layers? Try a cashmere-wool blend wrap (below, left) or a cardigan that will also transition well into spring (below, right).

Right now is definitely the time to simplify. And whether you are cutting out extra sugar, caffeine, or clutter, keep your accessories equally understated.  These adorable studs are the style equivalent of going back to basics.  My favorite are these sweet golden arrows (below, left), but newly engaged friends would probably adore this "love" set (below, right).

Don't forget to moisturize! Even when covered up in knits, your skin is super thirsty. Hydrate lips with a healthy balm (below, left), and keep your hands pretty with nourishing, rich hand creams (below, right).
