Accessories Report

Something strange is happening in Bloomington. The calendar says it's almost December, but the forecast looks like something we would normally see in March! With the weather being as unpredictable as it has been, it's hard for Fashionistas to know the right amount of winter gear to pack on before heading out the door every day. On this sunny yet chilly day, this Fashionista packed on the perfect amount of winter accessories to keep her looking cool and feeling warm around campus.

This Fashionista kept her look simple and laid-back by wearing skinny jeans with an old-school IU sweatshirt and her customized Converse high-tops. To keep herself warm against the occasional chilly breeze, she also sported a black and gray scarf and a gray felted cap reminiscent of the ‘20s. However, a hat and scarf aren’t the only accessories out there to help ward off the chill. To minimize bulk, keep warm and still look cute, go for a chic knit ear warmer. To keep your neck warm, choose a simple neck snood instead of a long scarf. Let’s not forget the growing fingerless glove trend that allows your hands to stay warm while still giving you freedom to use your phone without fuss.

As with most popular trends this year, it's easy to create a DIY version of most winter accessories. All you need is a little knitting knowledge and creative juice. Whether the weather is up or down, make sure you beat Mother Nature at her own game by layering with cute winter accessories.
