Grecian-inspired dress: a soft and simple alternative to the LBD, a Grecian-inspired dress can be the best option for a winter special occasion or event. Getting away from the usual satin or stiff dress, light colors and fabrics will help you stand out.

Gloves: I hate to say it, but it’s time to dig out your winter accessories. The cold has hit Buffalo, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look good in chill temperatures and snow. These gloves from H&M are a great options to keep your hands warm and fashionable.

Green eyeliner: a daring alternative to black eyeliner which has dominated the beauty scene for years, green eyeliner is best if used in bold or bright shades. Accented with a royal purple and pink line under the eyebrow, this courageous look would be great paired with a simple outfit.

Glamorous oversized hats: forgo the tight knit caps this fall and opt for a glamorous oversized hat instead. In suede and felt, these hats will stay warm and keep the wind from ruining your well-groomed hair form this morning.

Galoshes: now the most fashionable thing to wear in rainy weather since a bright yellow jacket, galoshes are both stylish and practical. For winter, add a pair of thick boot socks to turn these fall shoes into snow-ready options.
