You might not be Kate Middleton who has dozens of stylish coats, but just like her you want to look elegant and smart on a daily basis. Showing off a fresh look every now and then might sound like a crazily pricey idea, but you can actually afford it. Accessorize your outerwear and give it some pizzazz!

Wide belts deserved their place in our hot trends list because they do make a difference. Tie a wide belt and get a more defined waist or wear a statement wide belt as a bright accent. This single accessory can liven up your plain outerwear. Today it can be a posh leather belt with a simple metallic buckle, tomorrow it can be an embellished fun belt with sequins- or crystals-detailing. You can also employ wide belts when you need an easy day-to-night outfit.

Scarves are great items to have, they are affordable, warm, and nice-looking (plus they boost your creativity – there are at least 13 ways to tie a winter scarf!) Scarves are multi-functional pieces, turn them into belts, headbands, or headwear. All in all, they are a good investment.

Finally, you can simply add a statement necklace that can do the job even if you don’t have a wide belt or a bright scarf (or if one of them is not enough.) The style of your necklace determines the overall style of your look.
