When you are looking to purchase accessories, it is important to consider their versatility. Ideally, you want to pick pieces that you know are timeless and can be paired with a number of different looks on various occasions. With most of the shopping sprees, we often forget why we should invest as much in accessories as in our actual outfits. Accessories are meant to give the outfit it’s character and finishing touches. It is a way for you to show your uniqueness and personality, even in the plainest and demure of outfits. Here is the definitive guide to some of the pieces to buy this year that is worth every cent and more.
As the saying goes, diamonds are a girl’s best friend. There’s a reason why this is the case – they can add the finishing touches to absolutely every outfit. While there are some situations where the biggest and most flash diamonds are what you want, but a discreet diamond necklace or choker can add a subtle bit of sparkle to a black dress and pair of pumps, a sharp pantsuit or even a crisp white tee and dark jeans.
There are some occasions where you don’t want to be carrying a large purse about – they can be heavy and cumbersome, but equally, you need something to carry about your cash, keys, cellphone, and of course, the all-important red lipstick. This year, large clutch purses, that are big enough to hold the essentials but not overbearing are totally on-trend. Go for something with a shoulder strap that can tuck inside so when you do need to sling it over your shoulder; you can.
A pair of bright white sneakers are essential in every shoe collection. Invest in these and spend a little more than you would usually because these will go with pretty much every outfit and last for years. Wear them with jeans, denim skirts, slim fit pants and as the past couple of years has shown, the midi skirt and midi dress for a casual, cute and comfortable look.
Skinny black belt
A simple, preferably leather skinny black belt will add a touch of class and accent to both pants and dresses. It is the perfect accessory to help you to emphasize your waist and enhance your shape, even in the most billowing of dresses. You could also wear it with a long cardigan for a super sophisticated and streamlined look.
Sunglasses are not just a fashion essential, but they protect your eyes against the dangers of the sun’s rays. Go for something decent, and that have been quality tested. Remember, the bigger, the better – they are perfect for covering all multitude of sins!
When it comes to accessories, it is worth investing in a few simple, good quality pieces that will be versatile to wear with all of your outfits and last you many years.
