Winter isn’t only about a stylish coat, pretty sweater, and lots of layers — the accessories matter too! From sunglasses and glamorous statement jewelry, to stockings and comfy scarves, these are some items that will make the winter more bearable.
Have you ever stepped outside with the sun reflecting off the bright white snow? Perhaps you have “hat hair” and don’t have time to get dolled up for a night out? The final step to any outfit are the accessories, so check out our favorite winter essentials from these fab Montclair shops:
Not only are sunglasses a chic and bold accessory that leave a flare of mystery, they protect your eyes from harmful UV rays and your skin from wrinkles. Madeline has a great selection of sunglasses such as black cat eye, two tone snakeskin wayfarers, and tortoise heart shaped frames for $10 and since the store is 50% off for the rest of the week, the sunglasses are only $5. What a steal!

Paired with either dresses, shorts, or skirts, stockings add a great touch to any outfit during the winter. Urban Outfitters has a great selection of durable stockings from sheer and lace, to fishnets and sweater tights. They add a sexy flare to an ensemble, while still keeping you a tad bit warmer than you would be without them. They range from $12-$18, but you can mix and match any two pairs for $22.

Even if you hair or makeup isn’t completed, a pair of dangly earrings instantly gives you that effortless glam look. Instead of having to spend an hour curling or straightening your hair, you can tie it in a pony tail or messy bun. Add a coat of mascara, a touch of lipstick, matched with the blue stone earrings from Oasis, and your face is all dressed up and ready to go!

A scarf is a great accessory for chilly weather because not only does it keep you warm, you can wear it and wrap it in various ways. A thick scarf instantly gives you a cozy, yet chic look. Our favorite piece from That Little Black Dress is the reversible scarf that has red and black plaid on one side and a black and white houndstooth pattern on the other. It’s even long enough to wear as a shawl over your shoulders!
