Winter Wardrobe Revive: Shoes, Bags, Coats, and More to Update Your Style

So winter has begun in earnest, and for some of us, it's way past time to pull out those old down jackets and wool coats. If you're tired of your drab black and gray uniform, The Fashion Bomb is here to give you 5 ideas to revive your wardrobe:
1. Interesting Tights
Whether in colorful hues or argyle patterns, tights give any outfit edge along with a bit of warmth. Bonus: they won't break the bank! Try these beauts:
1. Hue Houndstooth Sweater Tights, $28. 2. Falke Baroque Tights, $45. 3. Pin Stripe Floral Tights, $14. 4. Hue Argyle Tights, $18. 5. Armani Exchange Opaque Tights, $19.50. 6. Nordstrom Double Diamond Tights, $12.
2. A Colorful Coat
If you really want to stand out, a coat in an eye catching color can do the trick. Throw one on in a cool color, but save on these--next year you might get bored!
1. J.Crew Classic Peacoat, $225. 2. Marc by Marc Jacobs Check Print Coat, $340. 3. Steve Madden Stand Collar Coat, $98 (Plus, $119). 4. Express Mod Wool Coat, $168. 5.
