Creating an outfit is an important part of every day, as it starts you off for daily success. Pairing pieces together will not only set your day up properly but allow you to express yourself and your personal style. An add on to any outfit, accessories can provide another outlet for expression and pulling together the look. Using the accessories listed can add some subtle flair to your outfits, taking them to a new level.
Shoes may seem as if they are part of the outfit itself, but they can be used as an accessory to pull together an outfit and make it pop. A black dress may be paired with a pair of red or purple heels to add some colour, and change the outfit into a more fun and exciting piece.
Recently, the use of earrings as an accessory has become more popular. Earrings are often overlooked, as they are such a small piece, but they can draw people in and create a complete look.
Stud earrings can add some shine and class to a look. Even when wearing sweatpants or jeans on a lazy day, a pair or gem studs can make you feel and look fabulous when put together and dressed up. Dangling earrings can also make a statement.
Purses are another subtle accessory that often goes overlooked. Though it is practical and necessary for everyday use, it can also add a touch of flair to an outfit. When going out, a clutch handbag can be used to add a pop of colour and to carry essentials. When it’s a long day, a large handbag can look classy while still being functional.
Adding a touch of bling to your neck can create the appearance of wealth and a put-together outfit as well. With any top, a necklace will be eye-catching, and will complement the whole outfit. There are many necklaces to choose from, such as one with stones, a choker, or a timeless locket.
On a more casual day, socks may be an accessory you start to think about. Often paired with casual shoes, such as sneakers or boots, socks are necessary but can be played up to add to an outfit. Wearing socks with a fun pattern that matches with either your outfit or shoes can make your outfit look classy and put together as a whole.
Your wrist is a part of your body many people see daily, so adding an accessory will draw people toward you and your outfit. Bracelets come in all varieties, such as classic metal bangles or beaded ones, so you’ll have plenty of designs to choose from.
Like the old adage goes, why not “wear your heart on your wrist” goes by supporting a good cause? We really like these Venture bracelets in partnership with Polar Bears International.
The final piece of jewellery you should consider are rings. Again, hands are often seen by many people you meet throughout your day. Rings can be a fashion statement, and they can have meanings, such as the Claddagh ring, depicting your relationship status, or a mood ring that will change colours as your mood changes throughout the day. There is also the possibility of wearing multiple rings that look nice together.
Wallet or Belt Chains
Wallet and belt chains worn with a simple pair of jeans or dress pants has risen in popularity over the last few years. Various sizes and materials of chains are available, allowing you to match them nicely with your pants to add an edgy flair to the outfit.
Accessories Are an Important Addition to Any Outfit
Adding accessories to either a tailored suit or casual outfit can really elevate your look to a new level. Whether they are for practical or aesthetic purposes, accessories have the ability to tie an outfit together and make it attention-grabbing. By subtly accessorizing, you’ll have the ability to transform any piece of clothing you own.
