Whether you are a fashion diva or a fashion unknown, you may be looking for a way to update some of your favorite go-to outfits for the upcoming season. Sometimes, something as simple as a pop of color will add the freshness you need to an outfit you just cannot let go of this season.
One of the best things you can do to add color is to accessorize. Take a basic dress or even a pair of well-fitting jeans and add a bag, watch, or belt for an extra pop of color. Get creative and save by using something such as watches with tradable bands. Then you can add different colors at a fraction of the cost. Handbags, belts, and watches can be kept for years without going out of style.
Most women love jewelry. Your favorite pieces could be the accessory you need to complete that outfit. Go bold with a large piece or two, but do not overwhelm your frame. You do not need to wear every piece of jewelry you own to look nice. Choose a few key pieces to take your outfit to the next level.
Another accessory that should make its way into each and every closet is footwear. Choose a few statement pieces for your best outfits. Lace-up pumps, sandals, heels, and flats are big this season. These add fashion flair to otherwise simple outfits. Let’s face it, the perfect pair of shoes can make an ensemble or elevate a simple outfit to a higher level.
As the weather starts to turn, add a scarf, possibly with fringe, to a simple sweater to make your look fresh and new. This will add warmth for your cold commute and beauty to your overall look. You can even dress up your outerwear with a perfectly placed broach or pin that adds color to a dreary day.
How you choose to accessorize is a very personal choice. However, remember that less is more when it comes to large or overly colorful pieces. Choosing correctly can make your old looks appear fresh and new. If done correctly can take years off your overall look.
