Accessories can really make or break an outfit. They’re an easy way to add style and personality to your look and can ensure that no outfit ever looks the same.
By having a collection of essential accessories on hand, you can easily choose one, two or even three pieces to give your outfits new life every day. These are our favourites that we recommend every woman have in her closet:
1. Bags & Purses
Bags and purses aren’t just functional! Yes, they carry all of our essentials in them, from wallets to lipstick, phones and more. But your bag can also add a lot of fun and interest to your look! Choose a great bag that really suits your personality — preferably, one that you think will pair well with lots of your clothes. Whatever your personal style, a bag is a great way to show that off.
Who doesn’t love shoes? Shoes should be comfortable, for whatever situation you find yourself in, and they should also say something about you. It’s easier than ever these days to find a great pair of shoes that is also comfortable and long-lasting, whether they’re flats, heels, boots or sandals.
Jewelry is one of the most fun, most playful ways to add a little something extra to any outfit. Statement necklaces, pendants, earrings, bracelets or even a watch can quickly take an outfit from boring to fabulous. If you wear lots of neutral colours, consider choosing jewelry with a pop of colour. The most important thing when choosing jewelry is that it matches your personal style!
Scarves shouldn’t be relegated to the winter months. Throughout the year, in the spring, fall and even summer, scarves can add lots of personality and style to your outfits. Scarves have the added benefit of being multi-purpose, so you can tie one around your neck, use it as a belt, or even turn it into a headband. Scarves should always be colourful, bright and fun!
5. Cardigans & Wraps
While technically pieces of clothing, cardigans can make great accessories too! They’re perfect for layering during the spring and fall, and they come in a wide range of styles to suit your needs and personality. For warmer days, consider a cropped cardigan or one with three-quarter length sleeves. Cooler days can be great for long, duster cardigans. And when it comes to special occasions, wraps can be the perfect addition to your formal outfit!
