The right outfit can make you feel like a million bucks, absolutely on top of the world. You know the one. You immediately brought it to mind the moment you read that sentence because it’s the one thing in your wardrobe that makes your confidence soar.
While that amazing outfit gives you a major feel-good vibe now, you could take it up a notch with simple, fashionable accessories. The kind of accessories that could be life-changing because of the amount of VAVOOM confidence you exude when they are paired with your favourite outfit.
Here are some simple, fashionable accessory tips that will take your favourite outfit from awesome to bow-chick-a-wow-wow!
Handbags, Totes, and Wallet-Style Cell Phone Cases, Oh My!
A tote bag is a multipurpose accessory because it looks cool, leaves a stylish impression, and you can use it for storage of whatever you need while you’re out and about. The same is true for handbags and wallet-style cell phone cases.
The best part is that all of these things are customizable in your favourite prints and colours, so you could have a dozen of the same style, but still, look totally trendy and different with every outfit. Additionally, totes and handbags come in different sizes, so you have more options for wherever you need to go.
One is Silver and the Other is Gold
When most people think of accessories, they think jewellery, but everyone has their style. Silver and gold are classic favourites when it comes to engraved bracelets, rings, and necklaces, but jewellery accessories are more than preference. Some jewellery goes better with complexion and looks.
For example, someone with dark features, pale skin, and an autumnal sense of style would do well with silver-toned jewellery, whereas gold would complement the tone and sense of fashion with someone of darker complexion with a summertime style. Plus, silver and gold jewellery are often bejewelled with precious stones, so you can express your personality with things like your birthstone or your sweetheart’s favourite colour.
Have you ever been in a situation where you feel like your outfit is missing something? Perhaps you should try putting on a pair of earrings! They can be the most important but often overlooked accessory to rock your Outfit of the Day.
Earrings, even the tiniest studs, can make you stand out from the crowd. They can make you look sexy, classy, or both. They can also emphasise your skin tone and face shape in your favor. However, you have to choose and buy earrings that complement you. Small, neat, round earrings are perfect if you have an oblong face, while long dangling earrings are best suited if you have a round face and shorter neck.
Whether you choose gold or silver and stud or dangling, you can never go wrong with investing in Roberto coin earrings.
Dress for the Season!
A lot of accessories are marketed seasonally. For instance, you will see a wider variety of scarves for winter, whereas the scarves in the summer are often leftovers from winter sales. There’s not much selection, and who needs a scarf in the summer heat? Accessorizing seasonally gives you the best deals and colours for summer, springtime, autumn, and winter. You should never run out of options!
These are notably some of the best accessories by season:
- Winter – knitted shawls, beanie hats, sheepskin slippers, and warm cashmere gloves.
- Summer – gladiator sandals, crossbody bags, bold and vibrant earrings, and a simple silver or gold necklace.
- Springtime – Silk scarves, platform sandals, canvas beach bags, and cool, colorful sunglasses.
- Autumn – knee-high boots, brown leather coat, newsboy caps, and simple stud earrings.
Hair and Makeup Can Be Accessories Too with the Right Updo
The perfect haircut and makeup could serve as your accessories for an outfit if you want a minimalist approach to tangible accessories. Of course, the makeup and hair should fit the occasion. For example, throw your hair in a curled updo to simply accessorize an evening gown. Or keep those beachy waves flowing to accentuate a classic summer dress.
In terms of makeup, it’s all about your style. While minimal is usually best for days where you might sweat it off, there’s nothing wrong with bold makeup colours as the topper to an amazing outfit.
Love Colours? Express Yourself!
What’s your favourite colour? Or colours? Be specific. Now use those in your accessories! Love ocean blue, crimson red, or blush pink? Those are your accessory colours!
One of the easiest ways to incorporate colours as accessories is through your footwear. You can show your pride in the LGBTQ+ community by wearing rainbow sandals or convey your happy mood with a bright yellow pair of rain boots. Something is freeing about being able to express yourself with colours through the accessories you choose for an ensemble.
Colours and accessories are easier during holidays, like the Fourth of July when everything you accessorize with could be red, white, and blue. Christmas colours are, of course, red and green traditionally, but you could also accessorize around the holiday theme with jingle bell earrings and a fun Santa hat for work.
