With this colder climate it’s safe to say that scarves are becoming an essential part of my wardrobe. Scarves can really add definition to any ensemble and are a staple piece on one of those “nothing to wear” days. This Burberry Icon Check Cashmere Scarf maintains a signature style with super soft cashmere, check print, and delicate fringe. It is the ultimate exemplar of how to liven a monochromatic outfit, or just a brilliant way to stay warm this season.

Vincenzo Boretti 1123 Classic Fringed Check Scarf

Update (11/14/2017): Look what I’ve discovered just in time for christmas gift shopping! How gorgeous, spot-on AND affordable are these Burberry look-alike fringe scarves by Vincenzo Boretti? These look just like the real and while they are unfortunately made of acrylic, they allegedly are supposed to feel cashmere like which is a product claim that may hold true as these scarves received great five star customer reviews. And did I mention they come in 12 different (but all of them lovely) colors? Which makes it almost impossible for me to settle on just one favorite! I might have to bag two, three (possibly even four) of these darlings now that christmas is approaching and these would make lovely gifts.

Accessories can help produce a true statement and be the ultimate focal point of any outfit. Currently, wrapped and multiple stranded bracelets are very popular just like this Semi Precious Stone Bracelet by Chan Luu. Featuring simple and unique turquoise stones attached to a leather wrap, it can be worn casually and to add some color. Megan Fox and Hilary Duff wear this bracelet so mundanely, yet the final effect is a more polished and overall stylish look. The price tag is quite high though; thus, we have a perfect match for a perfect price! Check out the steal below!

Why spend $190 when we have a beautifully and impeccably designed look-a-like bracelet by Melrose Glam for $45? It is in fact so similar, that I can’t tell apart one from another except maybe slight variations in the beads. The most interesting part about this bracelet yet, is that it can also be styled into a necklace and a belt. So as a multifunctional accessory, it clearly will take you a long way for an affordable price. Additionally, you can save even more with our exclusive promo code!

Scarves are a great way to accessorize, but not for $395. As much as I adore this Burberry Giant Check Wool Silk Gauze Scarf, it is way beyond my price range. It seems to be a bit light for winter in my area, but perfect for transitional weather. No need to worry about the price because the scarved we found below are practically identical and very affordable as well.

Melrose Glam “Classic Nova” Scarf

Update (10/15/2012): Good news! BagInc has finally restocked the Melrose Glam “Classic Nova” Scarves which are now also available in other lovely colors such as red (my personal favorite!). Don’t forget to use promo code SPRINGBAG” to receive 15% off your entire order at BagInc!

To be honest, I actually like these scarves more than the Burberry one. I think that the darker pigmentation of the Melrose Glam “Classic Nova” Scarf looks more expensive, but the best part is that it’s only $12. This would make a lovely accessory for really any outfit, and also a great gift for someone who loves the classic Burberry style.

A good friend of mine recently bought a Mulberry Bayswater (a gift to herself on her birthday) and for a week straight everyone oohed and ahhed over it at the office. It is a spectacular bag, to be sure, but I think this new Mulberry takes the cake: the Alexa – a slouchier, more casual version of the Bayswater named after British style export Alexa Chung who is a true devotee of the Mulberry brand. If you haven’t heard tell of this bag yet, you will. Speculated to be the “It” bag of the moment, the Alexa sold out instantaneously on Net-A-Porter after being added last week. Restocks are supposed to follow soon, but even still, this beautiful creation is way out of my sad little budget.

Melrose Glam “So Soho” Satchel

Update (02/20/2012): Alright, it’s official! This Mulberry Alexa bag look-a-like by Melrose Glam (a brand exclusively available to BagInc as far as I know) is THE look-a-like who eats all the other look-a-likes for breakfast! How do I know? I already own a bag by Melrose Glam (the Alexander Wang Rocco inspired one, review coming in March) and the quality of this bag is ridiculously amazing. Definitely worth the investment. You can already see by looking at this picture that this is a high quality bag (seriously, how gorgeous is the textured leather here?). Oh, and did I mention we have an exclusive promo code that gives you 10% OFF your order? Simply enter “INTHEIRCLOSET” at checkout. Plus, free international shipping for all orders of $99+! SCORE!

You know how I know we’re good? Because we never forget a shoe. Or a handbag. Or a face. OK, so not the last one. Back in the old days (you know, 2005) the fashion world saw the introduction to the “It Bag” – a bag that became every starlet’s must have accessory. One day, readers (stay with me), Mary Kate Olsen was spotted carrying a gorgeous black, studded bag that no one could identify but that everyone immediately wanted. A year later the bag (eventually attributed to the talented, Alexander Wang) was made available to the public. It was then known as “Coco”; it is now known as “Rocco”; I can afford neither one.

Update (04/26/2011): I just stumbled upon this fantastic and virtually identical Rocco look-alike by Melrose Glam which is available at BagInc. Love it! It’s a little pricey, but a) it’s made of real leather and b) they offer free worldwide shipping on all orders of $99+. Plus, you can get 10% off your entire order with promo code SPRINGBAG. By the way, I now own this bag and it is AH-MAZ-ING (review here)! Soooo worth the investment! Just read the various 5-star customer reviews. Also available in various other colors.

Wet Seal Stud Bottom Satchel

I have to be honest, the last time I shopped at Wet Seal I was looking for something to wear to the school dance (in other words, it was 1998), but by golly perhaps Wet Seal deserves another look! Their Stud Bottom Satchel is a pretty darn great dupe of the Alexander Wang bag. True, it’s not made out of leather, but I know there are vegans among us who actually prefer that. For a mere $24.50 this is a hot bag to add to your arsenal.
