If you're going to make the often-quite-significant investment in a bag, for goodness sake make sure it's a timeless one. The recent crop of sleek, structured styles are just the thing to keep you looking fabulous today, tomorrow and well into your fashionable future.

Mod footwear is so hot right now, but more importantly the boxy, low heels on these styles are comfortable and versatile—and therefore work year after year.

Coming off last year's polar vortex it seems only fitting utilitarian styles are bigger than ever this winter. Functional and stylish, they feature hefty straps, substantial soles and enough warmth to help you trek through another snowy season.

One thing is for sure this season: All types of embellishment are welcome. Whether it's studs, jewels or feathers, the more ornate the better. And yet, if chosen with care, a statement piece can easily work with both casual ensembles and formalwear for a long time to come.

Any fashion girl loves jewelry, but rather than spending hours mixing and matching, choose a single statement piece that works for you. One and done.

Whether you chose a vibrant silk neckerchief or a nubby, ribbed knit, a scarf is the fastest way to tie together an ensemble and look effortlessly chic in no time. And that never goes out of style.
