Winter has finally rolled around on this side of the planet, and that means a few things. First of all, it means sweater weather is here. (Yes.) Second, it means we’ve got some serious shopping to do.
If you know us, you know we love shopping for the hottest seasonal trends each time the weather changes its mind—and winter is no exception. Sweater weather is the best reason to pad your wardrobe with a boatload or cute (warm! cozy! snuggly!) new items.
But of course, sweaters aren’t the only thing on the menu this season. We’re also shopping for not-so-basic items that’ll add some statement-making flair to our knit-filled closets. What can hold its own against the heaviest of sweaters? A pieces that’s dripping with embellishments—be they studded, sequined, beaded or rendered entirely in fabric.
Anyone who doesn’t think a sweater pairs with sparkly pants doesn’t understand how juxtaposition works—and we’re more than happy to educate them.
We’ve been stocking up on embellished everything since fall’s leaves first started hitting the ground. And we figured it was only right to share our faves with you. (We apologize in advance to whoever pays the bills.)
Below, you’ll find 21 embellished pieces worth shopping this season. Because while wardrobes comprised entirely of knits and cords are charmingly cozy, they’re made better by supplemental statement-makers.
