The best accessories to finish an outfit
Coco Chanel famously advised women to take one thing off before they leave the house – but we beg to differ! The right accessory can make or break an outfit. It's always a good idea to have a selection available, allowing you to try different, exciting styles. Fun, costume jewellery, hair accessories, belts and shoes are an easy way to experiment with new trends, without committing to a full wardrobe. On the other hand, accessories are also often a great chance to pick up an investment piece. You might want to spend a little more on a fabulous handbag, a pair of shoes, or a statement piece of jewellery. These pieces should last a long time, so make sure to choose a classic style that will still look great years down the line.
Choosing fashion accessories to look cool
The type of accessory that you normally wear will depend a lot on your regular style. For example, if you usually wear jeans or trousers, then you might want to pick up a few different belts. These can help transform a look, allowing your favourite pair of jeans to be worn in several different ways. If you live in a colder climate, then look for a variety of scarves. Big, bold scarves are an ideal way to add colour to your outfit, particularly if you prefer to wear plain tops. Lucky enough to spend a lot of time in the sun? Then you’ll need some fabulous pairs of sunglasses to look your best and stay safe at the same time!
Quirky accessories to show your personality
Finally, don’t forget about other types of fashion statements. Smartphone cases are a great way to play around with something new. You don’t have to wear yours, so there’s no need to worry about how it fits with your outfit. Choose one that’s brightly coloured, sparkly, or has a quirky quote on the back. Look out for how to express your personality through fabric masks, too. There’s no need to stick to something plain and simple. These are available in all different colours, prints and patterns, allowing you to stay safe and look fabulous. If you’re new to accessories, keep it simple at first. Mixing metals can be difficult and hard to pull off – so if your handbag has gold details, make sure you've also got gold on your belt, look for gold watches to match, and so on.
