#1 Hair Accessories
Hair accessories are an important aspect when creating your look.
Not only do hair accessories serve a decorative purpose, but they are also extremely functional - especially for those with medium and long hair.
For example, a coloured headband is a beautiful piece that is not only great for pulling hair out of your face, but a great way to introduce new colours to your outfit.
If you’re looking for something more subtle to keep the flyaway in place, bobby pins or small clips are the way to go.
Not only do they make a great winter accessory because they add warmth, scarves can actually be used as accessories all year round.
Thick scarves act as an accent to your outfit, they offer layers and colours to your outfit.
Loop your infinity scarf around your neck or layer on some thick scarves for a chunky look in the winter to keep yourself warm!
For warmer seasons, drape a thin scarf around your shoulder to add some colour and pattern to your look.
For further accessorizing, tie a thin silk scarf around your purse for a different look!
Many people wear watches for its functionality and not really as a fashion statement.
We say they are great for both!
They are the same as other types of jewelry, like a bracelet - but with an added purpose!
There are so many variations of watches: different-shaped clock watches, leather wrist strap, metal wrist strap and in an array of colours.
Watches are a great investment, a good quality watch made with fine craftsmanship can last you many years!
Sunglasses are another practical accessory.
Known for protecting our eyes from prolonged sun exposure and potential eye conditions like cataracts, sunglasses are one of our favourite accessories!
They can bring (good) attention to your face.
With the correct pair that matches your face shape and bone structure, you will be bringing out your face’s best features with a pair of sunglasses.
Can you imagine going out without a purse to carry all your essentials?
Purses are one accessory that almost everyone will be carrying when they go out.
Whether you’ve opted for a large or small bag, or a clutch or a backpack, purses add that finishing touch to your look!
Perhaps one of the broadest category of accessories, jewelry is the “exclamation point to a woman’s outfit” - as pointed out by famous designer, Michael Kors.
Whether it is a statement gold necklace or simple silver stud earrings, adding jewelry to your outfit can transform an otherwise bleak outfit into a sensational look.
It is such an important accessory because it has the ability to elevate your entire look and also boost your confidence.
Now that we’ve gone through our top 6 accessories, here are some suggestions as to why we think you should really incorporate these pieces into your wardrobe:
Dress For the Occasion
Depending on where you are going, jewelry can help transform you to fit the time and place.
Need some simple and subtle jewelry for work? A pair of gold stud earrings or short dangles are probably great options for the workplace.
For a night out, you might want a more attention-grabbing piece.
