When it’s cold and icy, winter accessories heat things up.

Chic winter accessories make a frigid day feel less frosty. This year, there are plenty of on-trend trimmings. Add a fun floppy hat or funky fur vest to your stack of sweaters to dampen your wardrobe’s winter blues.

This season, Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th at The Legends Outlets has an array of fashionable headwear to top off your look. Twinkling headbands, floral beanies, feathered fedoras, uber-floppy felts and bejeweled cloche hats are all en vogue when worn with confidence and a cool outfit.

You can find most for up to 65 percent off the retail price at the store for a reasonable bonnet that fits your budget.

Faux fur vests and shrugs are another way to sizzle during the dreary months, along with brightly patterned circle scarves and pretty-but-practical gloves or mittens.
