Choose Great Fashion Accessories & Learn How To Accessorize!
By definition fashion accessories are an item that is used to contribute to an outfit in a secondary manner. The right accessories will not only contribute to your outfit, they will complete it. Used carefully, the right accessories can be used to transform the same piece of clothing into a multi-purpose item. For example, if you learn how to accessorize smartly, you can quickly turn a work outfit into night wear or a sensible outfit into a fun outfit with a moments notice!
Fashion accessories are an important part of any woman’s outfit and should be more than just a last minute afterthought. The best fashion accessory pieces for women to choose are those that will create completely different looks for the same items of clothing, giving new life to clothes hanging dormant in the wardrobe.
While fashion jewellery can be fun sometimes it does also tend to go ‘out’ of fashion quickly. Make sure your jewellery collection contains at least one complete set of good quality jewellery consisting of earrings, a bangle or bracelet and two necklaces of different lengths. If you tend to switch between gold and silver accessories, your prize fashion accessory should be a gold/silver combination that goes with absolutely everything else in your collection.
For a timeless look, invest in one good quality pair of sunglasses that suit your face rather than following fashion trends. With a decent pair of sunnies on hand, you don’y need to worry about how to accessorize – you will instantly look great!
Perhaps one of the most versatile fashion accessories for women to own, scarves are sometimes underrated. A scarf can be worn numerous ways around your neck or shoulders to keep you warm. It is also much easier to carry than a cardigan or jacket as it will fit inside your handbag. Scarves can also be worn around your head or waist to dramatically change the look of your outfit.
The style and colour of your handbag can really make or break an outfit. While every women needs a staple black handbag as part of their collection, it’s a good idea to opt for a neutral, textured handbag that matches many different colours. Another fun solution is to choose a patterned handbag that includes many different colours from your wardrobe. While it might seem a difficult task to minimise the number of handbags in your collection, there are handbags available that have ‘clip-on’ covers of different colours and patterns. This way you can have the one hand bag and change the outer cover to suit your current outfit.
You may not be at the point in your life where you need a belt to hold your pants up, but a simple strap can compliment an outfit in many ways. In addition to accentuating the waistline a belt can help to really add some ‘polish’ to an outfit. If you have a short torso, choose thinner belts that you can wear low around your hips. If you have a long torso, try a thick belt placed higher than your natural waist line to give the illusion of a shorter torso. If you are busty or overweight a thicker belt placed slightly higher than your natural waist line will look the best.
Don’t Skimp On Your Accessories!
When choosing fashion accessories, carefully select those that compliment the rest of your wardrobe. By investing in pieces that suit your face, body type and lifestyle and learning how to accessorize, you will get the very best out of your current wardrobe and you will feel prepared for any occasion.
