Accessorize Your Holidays

Accessorize Your HolidaysWith only a little more than 2 weeks left until Thanksgiving, I am definitely getting into the holiday spirit. I get to go home in 11 days, after a long 3 weeks and 2 weekends spent on campus so I will enjoy the comforts of home and family, which are especially sweet this time of year. And since the weather is finally cooling down here in silly Colorado, I'm looking forward to stocking up on wintertime accessories to make those chilly days not so chilly.

AMERICAN EAGLE: I've never owned a trapper hat, but I've always thought that they're really cute. AE now offers 9 different trapper hats, in all kinds of patterns and colors. My favorite is the AE Snowbunny Trapper Hat in classic navy heather ($34.50). It's made out of a chunky knit wool so it looks handmade and the faux fur trim and lining adds a rugged, cozy touch. I also really like their convertible knit gloves, especially the AE Striped Convertible Gloves ($24.50). The colorful stripes just brighten up a gloomy winter day.

HOLLISTER: 'Tis the season for scarves! With all the colors, shapes, sizes, patterns and varieties out there, it can be hard to pick just one. A very adorable one is the Classic Winter Scarf ($39.50). It's a basic navy and burgundy wool blend scarf with a knit image of Sam Diego, Hollister's cartoony seagull, in a Santa hat. Now how can you pass that up? If you're planning on hitting the mall this Black Friday, you'll need a great bag to hold all your necessary items. The Classic Beach Tote in navy floral ($29.50) has plenty of room for your wallet, cell phone and makeup bag and the beautiful floral pattern will stand out in a crowd.

ABERCROMBIE & FITCH: Socks are a definite must-have to keep your toes warm. But have you ever thought about making your socks stand out? A&F's got you covered warmth and style-wise with their selection of socks. My favorite is the Cozy Winter Socks in pink heart ($16). The Vintage Winter Scarf in cream plaid ($38) won't just keep your neck warm, it'll also look good with any outfit. You won't even have to take it off when you get inside because everyone will think it's just a fashion statement!

GILLY HICKS: How do you keep your feet warm at home? Slippers, of course! GH's Cozy Slippers ($39.50) are leather with faux fur lining and a polka-dotted bow detail. How cute is that? If you're looking for a classic winter hat with a twist, look no further than the Knit Winter Hat in green ($24.50). It has rugby-style stripes in navy and lime with a pom-pom on top. The best part is that it's got a scarf to match!

Don't settle for boring accessories this holiday season...brighten up those snowy days with a cute scarf, hat, gloves, socks, tote or slippers!
