UPDATE: Now that you've got your winter wardrobe nailed down, it's time to do the fun part — adding the cozy, comfy accessories that make your outfits pop. This story was originally published on October 25, 2012.
While every season brings with it a wealth of fashion goodies worth lusting after (this year, we can't stop thinking about leather pants and booties galore), there are certain staple pieces of a woman's wardrobe that are true necessities. Case in point: When winter starts to show its ugly, freezing face, stocking up on all things cozy and warm is non-negotiable.
And, while we'd love to fill our closets with cashmere this and shearling that, our wallets tend to raise a few objections. So instead, we've rounded up the most gorgeous winter accessories that are truly luxe for less. We're talking sumptuous fabrics and rich colors, all accompanied by price tags that won't break the bank. From toasty beanies and chic leather gloves to cozy socks that'll make your winter boots extra-comfy, these seasonal staples have you covered for any wintery mix in your future.
