Fortunately, the resort collections are filtering into Manhattan stores and offering up a plethora of accessories that will offset winter doldrums. Think sunglasses with ombré lenses and scarves strewn with elegant blooms.
Whether the months ahead involve a ticket to Tahiti or simply a blustery stroll along the Hudson River, rest assured that these fashion picks will put you in a beach-y state of mind.
