7 Picks Under $50 to Make Your Winter Wardrobe Seem Exciting Again (PHOTOS)

Holy moly am I bored to tears of my winter "uniform!" And by that I mean either jeans or leggings with the same boring rotation of boring long-sleeved tops and boring sweaters. I need a tropical vacation! For three months!

Sigh. Since we can't all have that (and if you can, can you please put me in your suitcase?), we CAN indulge in a little retail therapy. Tons of stuff is on major mark-down right now, so it's the perfect time to treat yourself (and your closet!).

1Not Another Boring Pair of Leggings!

Guess.com is having an awesome blow-out sale right now. These sexy, yet totally wearable Brittney mid-rise denim leggings with zippered ankles are made with a high-shine, metallic floral print and will make your black leggings hang their heads in boring shame. If you can't find your size, peruse the site for other patterns! (Normally $138; on sale for $39.99 at Guess.com)

2Neon Polka Dot Scarf

This neon orange polka dot scarf is a great buy: not only will it brighten up drab winter outerwear, but you'll be able to wear it any season (I always need a scarf in the summer for freezing A/C!). It also comes in navy and lavender -- super cute. ($29.95 at The Gap; they're having a sale on Saturday for 35% off everything!)

3Super Cute Cross-Body Bag

A new bag is something that gives you the most bang for your buck because you use it every day! This double flap cross body bag also comes in a great coral/red color. (Regularly $79.95; on sale for $39.98 at SoleSociety.com)

4Sexy Yet Sturdy Booties

I wanted to find a cute pair of flats to recommend, but in most parts of the country, it's going to be a while before we can venture out in anything but boots! Ergo, these chich yet sturdy DV by Dolce Vita Phillis wedges, which come in the olive color shown here, as well as black and taupe. ($49.99 at 6pm.com; free shipping!)

5Easy Striped Color-Block Dress

A casual dress that you can wear with leggings and boots now, and flats or sandals when things warm up. Love! ($29.99 at Old Navy)

6Chic & Flattering Blouse

A pretty blouse really elevates a jeans/boots-based outfit. Dress Barn has tons of cute options; I particularly like the stylish chevron print of this keyhole blouse. ($40 at Dress Barn)
