If you are wanting to step up your closet this winter these items are exactly what you need to start with! From coats to shoes and even popular jewelry, you can find the most popular stuff here.

1. Animal print

Literally, anything animal print is in style and will be for a while. Getting a cute pair of leopard or snakeskin shoes to give your outfits the perfect pop it needs is fun and also very fashionable. I have seen some really cute leopard jackets, belts, and even pants all ranging from different prices and found in different stores.

2. Fur jackets

Fur jackets are very in right now and they have been for a while. You can find fur jackets ranging from all different colors and furs. You can find some jackets that are very inexpensive or go all out and buy a real fur jacket for a couple hundred dollars. No matter what you decide to do, fur jackets are a must this winter and will be for a while and they are so versatile and will keep you warm even throughout all the snow we will be getting this winter.

3. Bright colored sweaters

Bright colorful sweaters paired with your favorite jeans are the perfect simple outfit for a regular day. You can find these sweaters at just about any store and they can be simple or really make your outfit pop if it stripped or has designs.

5. Statement boots

I love having one thing in my outfit pop. Finding the perfect pair of comfy yet stylish boots may be hard but definitely will be worth it to splurge on them! I've seen all kinds of fun boots this season already. From tall boots with stars or leopard print to short red or studded boots, no matter what you decide on they will be the perfect asset to your closet this winter.

6. Oversized... anything

In the winter it's not all about fashion, it's more about comfort and being warm. Oversized sweaters are so cute with jeans or leggings and a pair of cute sneakers or boots. Oversized jackets, especially fur will go with anything and can be dressed up or down. Oversized denim jackets are cute and fun to layer with sweaters and flannels.

7. Beanies

Beanies are perfect for a bad hair day or when you are just too lazy to do your hair for class. They also keep you super warm and you can get them from really anywhere. You can get really cute beanies with fur balls on top or just a plain colored one that will go with all of your winter outfits!

8. ParkasΒ 

Parkas are so worth the splurge because they keep you warm if you are ever outside for long or walking to class... like I do. They keep you so much warmer than regular puffy jackets and they are even cute!

Top 10 Easiest And Most Effective Ways To Increase Protein In Your Diet

Hitting the gym, eating healthy, and not seeing results? Let's fix that.


Protein is a vital part of any good diet. It'll bring out those changes you work so hard for in the gym, but it's definitely hard to incorporate in every meal. Here are some easy and tasty ways to pack your meals with more protein and see results for all your hard work:

1. Remember that breakfast is just as important as dinner.

Breakfast can be difficult to make a high protein meal because, most the time, you're rushing in the morning. But, if you focus on incorporating some foods that'll increase the amount of protein in your breakfast, you'll see significant changes. Foods like greek yogurt, eggs, and protein powder in your coffee are small changes that can make a big difference.

2. Supplements.

Although a lot of people hesitate to use diet supplements, protein powder can be effective for anyone struggling to reach the amount they need daily (which is most people). If you look at protein powder as a tool and not a 'quick fix' to adding protein, you'll find it extremely helpful. You can add it to yogurt, smoothies, pancake mix, and even your morning coffee!

3. Make every snack a protein snack.

Make it your goal that when you snack, you're having a protein snack! My personal favorites include greek yogurt parfaits, protein chips, protein bars, hard boiled eggs, or beef jerky!

4. If you don't track your protein intake, try it out.

Tracking how much protein you consume in a day can help you figure out how much more you need to add to your diet, as well as where you need to work on incorporating it the most.

5. Include a high protein source in every dinner.

Chicken, salmon, beef, tofu, etc...

Whatever you choose as a protein source, try to incorporate it into your dinner as much as possible. In the mood for pasta? Add chicken or beef to your pasta for protein.

6. Pair peanut butter with fruit.

Having a banana? Add some peanut butter to it for added protein. But, beware, too much peanut butter can significantly increase caloric intake! So measure, measure, measure if you're aiming to be in a caloric deficit!

7. Buy or make a big, protein-packed salad for one of your meals.

A whole lotta greens with protein-packed toppings is a great way to have a high protein, low carb meal! Choose the right toppings, a high protein source, and a healthier dressing, and you'll see that a salad can leave you full and satisfied for a while.

8. Choose protein enriched food when eating out.

Going out to eat with friends or family? Try your best to opt for a high protein entree! For example, choose egg whites with sausage when out to breakfast instead of french toast or pancakes.

9. Meal prep!

Sometimes it's hard to get enough protein because you might just not have enough time to prep it and add it to a meal! However, if you meal prep for the week when able to, it'll make life a lot easier. Something as simple as cooking a lot of chicken Sunday night to use throughout the week can be extremely helpful!

10. Utilize seeds!

Adding hemp, chia, or flaxseeds into your diet can give you an extra amount of protein that could go a long away although seemingly small. Add them to protein smoothies or on top of a salad!
