If you're looking for statement pieces (and I'm not just referring to jewelry here), the thrift store is your new best friend. I love finding items like this faux fur cape; you can take them and build a whole outfit around them.
I find that if you have something very voluminous on top, like this cape, it's best to counter that with something formfitting on the bottom, that accentuates your waist/hips. It's great to look cozy, but without some strategy, that can quickly turn into frumpy, so make sure you balance out your outfit! It's also why I've started tucking my sweater in what might seem like a weird way. I think it looks a bit more interesting than having the sweater cut straight across your hips.
To finish off the look, I'm wearing what I consider to be my favourite statement necklace of all time, the Stellar Necklace from Nobis & Grey. I seriously can't find anything it doesn't go with!
