The easiest way to give the impression that you put some effort into your winter look has to be the addition of a fuzzy stole (preferably faux). I’ve started to rely on this overly snuggly style, especially when I’m about to walk out the door in a very dark (read: boring) ensemble. My vote is always for a coloured style, but you will get much more wear out of a black one. Just be sure to opt for as much texture as possible…. There’s no point being subtle.
