Just like clothing, certain accessories are appropriate for certain occasions. Essentially, you can bring a staple piece of clothing from one occasion to another by simply focusing on accessories.
For example, let’s take a really basic outfit: a white button up shirt and a pair of fitted, straight legged jeans in a dark denim wash. Using accessories and only accessories, you can take this standard outfit through three different occasions.
1. For a day of shopping and lunch with the girls, you can accessorize with bold, colorful statement jewelry, a cross body bag and a pair of leather boots. Top off your fun look with a floppy straw hat and trendy sunglasses.
2. To create a work ensemble appropriate for Fridays at the office, you can wear black kitten heels, a pearl necklace and a leather handbag in a neutral color. Complete the look with a skinny black belt and a lightweight, sheer scarf.
3. Come night time, look comfy chic for a casual dinner date with a pair of pumps and an evening clutch. Accessorize with cocktail rings or interesting earrings.
As you can see, you can easily wear the same outfit for three different occasions. It’s all about choosing the appropriate accessories.
Accessories further emphasize your personal style, taste, and preferences. They also present endless opportunities for outfits, helping you make the best of each and every item you own. Clothing may physically take up more space in your closet and outfit, but accessories are the important details needed to complete each look.
On their own, a handbag, scarf or headband may not make much of an impact. However, when combined with clothing, accessories help create a solid outfit. Accessories matter just a much as clothing, providing you an entirely new opportunity to express yourself. Thanks to accessories, you can create a flowing wave of style from head to toe.
