Ah, January shopping. There are still deals to be had, but plan on picking through sale racks. Plus, if your closet is anything like mine, it’s pretty stuffed already. So if you’ve got enough clothes to last the winter but you always feel as if you have nothing new to wear, I have an idea that will help make your loved clothes feel new again. All you have to do is invest in some interesting accessories. Adding a few new pieces to change up your old look will transform your wardrobe for the next few months – at least until you’re ready to shop Spring. So read on for some must-have accessories you need to buy this month.

How to Wear Winter Fashion Accessories

Punch It Up With Jewellery 

Add a unique necklace, bracelet or earrings to any outfit – a simple black dress or even jeans and a sweater – and you’ve got a look to remember. Look for pieces that have colour or style that attracts you.    Banana Republic Regalia Drop Earrings Banana Republic Regalia Necklace Banana Republic Starburst NecklaceTed Baker Jewel Stack Ring in Rose Gold 1-4: Cocoa Jewelry. 5: Ted Baker. 6, 7, 8: Banana Republic. 9: Ted Baker.

Cinch It In With Belts

Belts are a simple way to make sure you show off the slimmest part of you. At the same time, they transform any outfit by giving it a new and interesting shape.
