Ever since stilettos became a wardrobe staple (thanks to Sex and the City) heels have reached painfully new heights. For some of us, especially those of us who are vertically challenged, it's hard to feel sexy without throwing on a pair of sky-high heels to elevate our entire appearance. At work, heels evoke a sense of style and authority and help women meet the expectation to always look polished while on the go. It's hard to resist the funky and affordable styles of Steve Madden, Vince Camuto, Sam Edelman and the like with their studded, spiked, strapped and printed platform heels.
With the arrival of pumpkins, autumn leaves and warm apple cider (yum), this season ushers in the unmistakable chill of the winter air. Fortunately for our wardrobes, that means adding some standard go-tos when we need to keep warm. With our hairstyles of this season covered, here is a guide to a few cold weather essentials to warm our backs as winter begins to breathe down our necks.
1. Longline Padded Coat from ASOS: Among a sea of puffer coats we're bound to come across on the street this year, this one will stand out in the crowd. Its shiny finish and tapered waist adds some style to the classic cold weather staple. The oversized collar eliminates the need for a scarf, so you can just grab this coat and go.
