7 Holiday Accessories You Can Officially Start Wearing Today
So, 2020's holiday season might not meet the standard of "most wonderful time of the year" (ugh, we miss you, boring February), but just because we're spending more time at home and skipping our usual round of parties doesn't mean it can't be fun. There are still plenty of movies to be watched, hot cocoa to be made, and holiday accessories to wear — the latter of which will turn any outfit more festive, even if it's pajamas. (Please see those $8 fuzzy, red and white-striped Aerie socks, above, which will look super sweet with your coziest clothes.)
While we already knew the fashion-boosting power of a good drop earring or fun hat, adding cute, sparkly extras to our look has magically helped to transform our mood, too. Whether you're celebrating via Zoom, chillin' with your pod, or simply feeling an urge to get dressed up, here are five accessories to throw on, ASAP, adding a little holly jolly to the end of the year.
Playful Earrings and an Embellished Beret
You can wear pearls and hoops any time of the year, but how often do you have an excuse to rock the face of Frosty the Snowman? It's time to embrace the season's quirkiness with these BaubleBar drops ($48; baublebar.com). Then, you can punch up a classic Kangol beret ($55; amazon.com) with a handful of snowflake pins ($13 each; amazon.com), and you're pretty much set for a quick drive to see the lights.
A Simple Ribbon and Some Pearls
Don't just save 'em for the presents! Cut yourself a bit of ribbon ($3; michaels.com) and DIY a fashionable yet functional hair accessory. It's a great way to amp up your favorite knit sweater, like this Victor Glemaud pick ($350; shopbop.com), and then you can go the schoolcore route with a plaid skirt. If you're still craving a more dressed-up and statement-making twist, layer on some pearls ($135; kennethjaylane.com).
A Statement Headband and a Matching Mask
Something extremely 2020 to try this holiday season? Coordinating your mask with your outfit. Lele Sadoughi sells a ton of seasonal combos, including this plaid mask ($49 for 3; lelesadoughi.com) and headband ($195; lelesadoughi.com) set, which will add both flair and protection to whatever you're wearing.
