Essential Winter Pieces and Accessories
As the new decade moves forward, it’s time to embrace the exciting new trends dominating the fashion runways – and nothing makes a statement more than fine accessories. It’s not too late to find the perfect pieces for both casual and formal occasions, and we’ve put together a list of some of the most electrifying new finds in this winter’s trends to help enhance your winter wardrobe.
Bags. This year is about stylish practicality, and we’re seeing a trend away from large, bulkier handbags as modern women opt for more compact options. A cropped handbag lets you carry everything you need while accessorizing your wardrobe with a lighter, smaller bag. Texture is the key to selecting an elegant piece for your winter wardrobe, and top choices include shearling and croc-embossed or quilted gloss leather. Find the perfect piece at the Oak Street District at Prada, Giorgio Armani, Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin, and Tod’s.
Hats. Continuing their popularity from fall, bucket hats are still in demand for winter 2020. They’re an exciting trend that goes from casual to chic with the more elegant, mature styles complementing the most formal of styles. Large, masculine style fedora hats also dominate the runways this winter, with unique textures and colors making the style your own. If you love texture, faux fur styles are a growing trend this winter with a warm, cozy style for a practical fashion statement. Explore the many apparel boutique options in Oak Street District to find the perfect piece for you.
Scarves. The scarf is the perfect accessory for winter – practical, stylish, timeless – and this winter’s trends let you showcase your personality with a variety of shapes and textures that you can make your own. Choose a unique texture like leather or gromet-studded fabric or wear a more conventional scarf in a whole new way to the side, choker style, or even with a belt.
Coats. The coat is the premier piece for your winter 2020 wardrobe. Make a bold statement about texture, color, and even sustainability with this year’s trends featuring a myriad of choices that personalize your style. Retro looks have a significant presence on the runways this season, with 70s or 90s styles dominating this genre. Think earthy colors, long jackets, and corduroy fabrics to harken back to the 70s or go with the messy grunge look to bring back the 90s. Sustainability trends are hot for 2020 and include vegan fabrics, repurposed materials, and slogans that make a bold statement about the environment. There’s also the trend toward gender-neutral looks in long, suit-like jackets that go anywhere. Comfortable knits with exciting textures and bold accessories round out the 2020 coat trends this year. Find the perfect pieces that suit your personality for every outfit in your wardrobe at any of the fine apparel boutiques at the Oak Street District, including Loro Piana, Christian Dior, Saint Laurent and many more.
Jewelry. Fine jewelry trends for winter 2020 are all about being unique and letting your individual personality shine through. Silver tops the list, with elegant, understated pieces that go anywhere from casual occasions to a formal event. Pendant earrings dominate this winter, with a variety of textures and colors to accent your wardrobe. Bright colors, glittery gemstones, and layers help you stand out and beat the cold outside.
