This pattern is one that has been wore and recognized in the fashion industry for years and often linked to the classy designs of Chanel and the designer’s houndstooth printed dresses and suits. Not only does this print offer you a secure feeling of elegance but it also looks great on just about everyone! Unlike stripes, this pattern accents a women’s figure.

Must-Have Bags in your 20s

Nothing makes an outfit more fashion forward than great shoes and an even better purse. As you transition into the next big chapter of your life, your fashion choices will change. These top five purses are essential pieces every girl in her twenty’s should have in her closet!

Busniess Birkin

Your early twenty’s means you’ve finally finished school and are entering the business world and nothing says businesswoman better than a Hermés Birkin. Classy, structured and durable for those commutes to the city, this purse will make a statement and go great with any outfit. Although most people opt-out for a colourful Birkin, I’d stick to a more neutral colour, like brown, beige, black or white. Don’t worry, you’re only twenty-something, the next one you buy can be any colour you desire!

Everyday Tote

So you’re in a hurry on a Saturday morning running all the errands you skipped out on during the week and you don’t need a purse with a lot of zippers and pockets slowing you down. An everyday tote is a must-have for all your busy days. The open concept and simplicity will make it easy to find everything you need without ruining that fresh manicure.

Classy Clutch

The greatest thing about being in your twenty’s is the freedom without the heavy load of responsibility! It’s a time to have fun with your closest girlfriends and go on a lot of dates until you find “the one” (if that still exists). Nonetheless, you will always need a simple, yet classic clutch and what’s more chic than Chanel?

Top 5 Must-Have Winter Accessories

With the weather changing and the snow starting to fall, I’ve decided to compile a list of the top 5 must-have winter accessories, to help you prepare for this dreadful cold season.

1) Beanie

The first winter accessory is the beanie hat. Although they won’t keep you warm like a tuke will, they will look fab with any outfit and give you a cozy, warm look overall.

2) Chunky Scarf

Every girl will def need a chunky knitted scarf to keep her warm! The nice thing is you have a lot of options with colour and style in this category. I personally prefer the classic style versus the one-piece wrap scarf, but it really depends on your style and outfit.

3) Combat Boots or Chic Rain boots

Boots are a must, no questions asked. But a trend that carried on from last year is the combat boot. Finding a nice pair of lace-up and buckle accented boot is key for this season. We’ve also seen to rise of a “chic” rain boot (if that’s even possible…), which is great if you’re looking for comfort and style.

4) Tech-Savy Gloves

We’re seeing them everywhere; these simple gloves with tip sensitive fingers. These gloves allow you to text all your bffs while waiting at the bus stop, which makes them a must-have winter accessory.

5) Faux Fur Collar

Finally, the last piece to the puzzle is a faux fur collar. Adding a piece like this to your closet for the winter season is key because they can turn the simplest outfit into something fashionable, cute and super cozy!

 

Beanie: Forever 21 $8.80, Scarf: Zara $35.90, Combat Boots: Steve Madden $99.95, Gloves: American Eagle $15.83, Fur Collar: H&M $16.99.
