Save: $50 Surrell Rabbit Fur Velvet Band Earmuffs, Bloomingdales.com
Steal: $30.99 Athleta Women Faux Fur Ear Muff Size One Size, Athleta.Gap.com
If you happened to catch a second of Fox’s new show this past Fall, Scream Queens, you may have developed the same slight earmuff obsession from Billie Lorde’s character (synopsis: her ex had threatened to chop off her ears, therefore, the ridiculous sorority girl had earmuffs on as a perennial stable). These earmuffs are practical, functional, and won’t remind you of the early-90s memories of freezing your a** off waiting for the school bus.

Splurge: $274.70 Missoni Knit Infinity Scarf, Farfetch.com
Save: $29.50 Wyatt Bordeaux Popcorn Knit Wool Blend Infinity Scarf, BlueFly.com
Steal: $17 Charlotte Russe Cable Knit Infinity Scarf, CharlotteRusse.com
The infinity scarf is pretty much the quinoa of winter fashion – it goes with everyone, and we’re not entirely sure how. Pair an infinity scarf with a long-sleeve skater dress with tights, a casual tee and jeans, slouchy sweater, etc. These are the low-key I tried to look high-key nice piece that everyone needs in their wardrobe. Not to mention, infinity scarves create a halo of warmth around your face. A+ in functionality. Infinity scarves can also be categorized as snoods which, as if you needed another reason to purchase, provides you with a reason to say: hey girl, I love your snood.
