Accessories are what complete an outfit and give it a sense of style, personality and identity. They can transform the look of any basic outfit into a glam-outfit that will have heads turning in all directions.
In a time when micro-trends come and go at lightning speed on social media, accessories have never been more in demand. Fashion designers are experimenting with unusual aesthetics, making their pieces stand out from the pack and create a wow factor in every way. At the same time, consumers are on a quest to find the accessory that will define their look.
The word ‘accessory’ means something that enhances or adds value to another item – think of it as an extra, not a necessity. For example, a computer printer is an accessory because it gives the computer additional functionality and capability. It would still work without it. Fashion accessories are a great way to give an outfit that extra ‘wow’ factor, and can even change the look of an older, familiar dress. A new handbag, carefully conglomeration of jewelry or a hat can breathe fresh life into an old dress, and give it a whole new identity.
Having a good assortment of fashion accessories is the best way to ensure that you have something to wear for any occasion. For example, you can start the day with a simple little black dress and transform it into three different looks by adding different accessories. In the morning, you can style it with sunglasses and a hat, then in the afternoon, switch to a cross-body bag and pumps or flats, and in the evening, wear it with a clutch and statement jewelry.
