Stay warm and chic with trendy picks
As lovely as warm weather can be, there’s something special about the winter season. Roaring fires, hot cocoa, holiday parties and the clothes. In the words of Lorelai Gilmore, “Everything’s magical when it snows. Everything looks pretty. The clothes are great. Coats, scarves, gloves, hats.” With that in mind, expand your winter wardrobe and pick up some new accessories from these local shops and online outlets.
Pantone has declared Spicy Mustard one of the most vibrant 2016 winter color trends because it adds a zesty touch to any outfit. Cozy up next to a fire or take a stroll through the woods in an oversized sweater and matching leggings.
