Pop on major shoes.
This season, step up that style with some seriously stylin’ shoes. Forget your basic black ballet flats (for a sec) and tackle the town in some bad-to-the-bone boots.

Opt for a not-so-standard scarf.
All of a sudden, it’s properly chilly out there. A bold neck-warmer gives you a dash of color and sass. We love how this one looks like oversized mesh. Awesome.

Make an entrance in a cape.
Wanna stand out from the millions of girls in hoodies, blazers and moto jackets? Cap off your ensemble with a oh-so-cool cape. Sure, it’s dramatic but you’ll take it off as soon as you get inside, so it’s not full-on crazy.

Grab a decked-out headband.
Why keep your headgear prim? A few studs help punk up those strands. It’s overkill with any tough-chic getups, but works well with plain ensembles.

Get a hold of a disco-ball clutch.
Hello, sequins. This bag is too wild for school days, but is just wild enough for a night out with your girlfriends.
