Beanies and Knit Caps
Beanies and knit caps are the ultimate classic winter accessories. Whether you choose a classic fitted hat, a slouchy hat, or one adorned with a pompom, you are sure to feel warm, stay dry, and look fashionable. A hat is the perfect way to add an unexpected pop of color or personality to your winter ensemble.
Pastels aren't just for spring anymore, because 2015 is the winter of pastels. You can find pastel outerwear in every style this season. Baby blues, dusty pinks, pretty lilacs, and buttery yellows may be delicate hues, but when paired with winter outerwear, they provide warmth against the elements with a refreshing contrast to standard black and gray outerwear.

While you may know it as burgundy, oxblood, or maroon, you can be sure it is a warm, versatile color to incorporate into your wardrobe or makeup this winter. Marsala is a stunning alternative to your standard black or gray, and this hue can be paired effortlessly with dark colors and leather.
