When the temperature drops, so does my motivation to get out of bed in the morning–meaning I’m rushed to get ready for class. It’s easy to find yourself wearing the same leggings, snow boots and sweaters to class every day: I’ll admit that comfy sweaters and leggings are my guilty pleasure. But it’s just as easy to throw on a pair of jeans with a classic black turtleneck and take your look to the next level by adding the right accessories.

Let’s start from the top: sunglasses. Who cares whether or not you’re wearing make-up with specs like those. You’ll turn heads just because everyone will want to know where you got those bad boys from. The tortoiseshell adds texture to the top half but keeps it classic enough that they will be around for a long time.

Now to the scarf: I want to use this one as an actual blanket to sleep in just because it looks so comfy. A plaid scarf is an absolute staple to any wardrobe. Not only will it keep you warm but it can add a pop of color and texture to a simple look. Plaid has been around since the beginning of time and won’t be leaving any time soon.

The watch! Oh, the classic kate spade watch with the adorable candy colored hands. It’s five o’clock somewhere, and wherever that is I hope I’m wearing that watch.

And last, but certainly not least: the boots. You could wear those any time, any day and I swear you could make just about any outfit look fabulous. Rain or shine, those leather boots add height and style to your look.

How To: I’m almost positive you Fashionista/o’s have a black shirt, a pair of jeans and pair of killer boots. You can make this look your own by accessorizing with a wool scarf and some sunglasses that hide a majority of your face. The last and final piece to the outfit is confidence, and if you’re wearing anything like this outfit, there’s no reason not to be. If you’re feeling extra confident, throw on a dark lip shade and get on with your day.
