LA Stylists Share Must-Have Winter Accessories

Although LA never gets too cold, Angelenos can still have fun with winter fashion. We caught up with some of the top stylists around town to find out their must-have winter accessories.

Johnny Wujek: A Brim Cap Beanie


“I’m a big time hat guy and Gucci always serves fashion with a little extra jazz. I am loving their men’s brim cap beanies. It’s a twist on the traditional idea of a baseball cap with embellishments, brim, and tassels.”


Pieced Felt Baseball Hat, Gucci ($335). 347 N. Rodeo Dr., Beverly Hills, 310-278-3451

Lindsay Albanese: A Longline Duster Coat


“Our winters are usually mild and a longline duster coat is typically more lightweight than a heavy coat. There is something so elegant and polished about wearing something long.”


Feria Coat, Marissa Webb ($898).

Toni Ferrara: Faux Fur Stoles


“Faux fur is in and it is super reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour. Faux fur stoles, scarves, or handbags are luxury items that women crave. The long gowns, elbow opera gloves, and a beautiful mink stole are perfect. A stole is perfect for LA winters because it can dress up any outfit. No longer does this trend serve as an evening accessory. It can be paired with skinny jeans, knee-high boots, a sweater, or plaid shirt. Casual or dressy, the fur stole adds just the simple element of expense without breaking the budget because when you go faux you are saving your pocketbook and your furry friends.”


Faux Fur Scarf, Carven ($190). Saks Fifth Avenue, 9634 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills, 310-275-4211

Anita Patrickson: A Statement Earring


“We have gone from seeing very minimal, beautiful, and dainty pieces to these big, gorgeous statement pieces. Rebecca De Ravenel’s bonbons are so cute. They are amazing and they come in a million different colors. During fall and winter, it’s more jewel tones. We just saw Lupita Nyong’o wearing the blue, ombre ones. You can find any color that fits your look.”


White Russian Earrings, Les Bonbons ($425).

Sarah Boyd: A Wrap Coat


“For me, I will wear a good coat every single day. One you can throw over anything. The big oversized wrap coats are very cool but you don’t want one that is too heavy. Keep it very affordable since you don’t wear it too much here. I love Revolve—they have some amazing choices.”


Dora Oversized Coat, Baldwin ($825).

Ali Levine: A Choker


“A choker is my must have winter accessory this year. Chokers are the ’90s trend that won’t quit, and they make for the perfect contour for your bare neck too! You can get them in jewel tones or velvets. They are all so beautiful and elegant for the winter season.”
