Beat The Blahs: Glam Up Your Winter Look For Under $20!

You don't have to wait until spring to add colour to your wardrobe

by: Zeba Khan

Surrounded by grey skies and slushy streets, it is easy to get caught up in the Winter Blahs. Wearing layer upon layer of warm, but bland, clothing can often add to an overall sense of dreariness. While the florals of Spring and the light pieces of Summer are still months away, you don't have to wait until then to brighten up your outfit. Add some colour and sparkle to your winter layers with statement necklaces and snuggly scarves.

I believe that fashion is where you find ityou can buy gorgeous pieces in unexpected places. Some of my friends steer clear of teen-targeted stores. I think they're missing out, because you can pick up bits and pieces to add interest to your outfit, while still looking age appropriate. Why leave all the fabulous bargains for the teenswe deserve them, too!

A statement necklace is the perfect way to liven up your sweaters and shirts. These necklaces would pair easily with grey, cream, or black tops. For an extra preppy look, wear a buttoned-up gingham shirt under a crew neck sweater with a sparkly necklace peeking out at the collar. The necklaces below are all from Forever 21they are my go-to destination for quality necklaces at amazing prices.

Scarves are a necessity in this weather, so why not choose one that lifts your spirits, too? Cable knits, Plaid, and Leopard prints are particularly popular this season. Eternity scarves are a great choice, just drape them and forget about themno need to constantly adjust or worry about loose ends.
