This past week has been nothing but grief on the East Coast in between the frozen rain and the blizzard. There have not been many occasions to call for dressing in anything but your warmest ski gear. It seems like nobody wants to put in the time or the effort into their outfits when they are going to throw on an large puffy coat as soon as they walk out of the door. So how do you turn something so drab as a warm winter coat to fab? One word: accessories.

This Fashionista pulled herself out of the winter slump by adding some much needed color to combat the icy bite of the winter weather. Her neutral canvas is absolutely stellar for everyday wear and can be paired with almost anything to complete the look. Her black peacoat adds a classic silhouette and feminine touch to the entire ensemble. She then tops the browns and blacks off with the slightest pop of color found in her chunky knit marsala-colored circle scarf. Girl is on trend! Marsala is the Pantone color of the year and is beautifully paired with a wide variety of color combinations. Opting for a wearable winter palette, this Fashionista seamlessly pairs her warm neutrals, found in her blouse and her tall boots, with the beautiful hue of her scarf.

How To: Spice up your dull winter essentials with some color! Add classic winter accessories like a chunky scarf or hat to keep warm and make a statement. It’s an easy way to dress up you winter staples without breaking the bank!
