Of course, clothes may make up the majority of your outfit, but accessories are much more important than you may think. It’s a mistake to think of accessories as equivalent to the cherry on the sundae, or the icing on the cake. They are so much more than mere enhancements. Accessories articulate your fashion style. They are a declaration of your personality uniqueness. They are a display of confidence and authority.
But for accessories to achieve the desired effect, like all powerful things, they must be used wisely. Here are a few hints for using the power of accessories responsibly:
1 ) One outfit, a thousand different looks. Sure it may just be a little black dress hanging in your closet, but with the right accessories it can make a thousand different statements. It all depends on your choice of jewelry, scarves, belts, bags, hats and gloves. As the iconic Iris Apfel says if you have a good, little simple black dress and you have different accessories, you can have 27 different outfits.
2) Looking good IS feeling good: Nothing shows your flair and zest for life like a beautiful accessory. Express yourself by using different colours and material. Everyone deserves to stand out and to feel good while doing it.
3) Accessories don’t have to be expensive to look expensive. There aren’t many things in life that can convey style and sophistication as inexpensively as the properly chosen accessory. Accessories are time and budget savers too. In the time it takes to shop for a new outfit you can try-on and buy ten-times the number of accessories and for half the cost. It’s a fact, trust me, they’ve done scientific studies.
