Sometimes it’s just not in your budget to buy a new wardrobe for the season. However, updating your wardrobe can be as simple as buying a few new accessories. You can find great bargains on good, quality accessories if you have the will and patience. Quality accessories can make your outfit look polished and updated.
Accessories to an outfit are like icing is to a cake. You just can’t do without them! The top three accessories that should be chosen with care are jewelry, shoes, and purses. Buy the right accessories and you could look chic and trendy. Buy the wrong accessories and you could end up looking cheap and outdated.
Jewelry can add dazzle to any outfit. Jewelry made of gemstones and precious metals can be worn for years and will outlive any outfit. There are many bargains across the internet on unique, handcrafted jewelry. You can even have a unique jewelry piece custom made just for you.
Believe it or not, the one accessory that can make or break your outfit is your shoes. Shoes need to complement your outfit and not steal all the attention away from you (unless they’re really, really cute of course!) Please, please choose shoes that you feel comfortable walking in. Invest in leather shoes if possible. Don’t spend that much on trendy shoes unless you think that they’ll make a comeback in the future.
Your purse will tell people more about you than you think. Are you fun? Conservative? Ready for anything? Organized? For an everyday purse, I recommend buying a leather purse that can withstand all the abuse of everyday life.
Contrary to popular belief, your purse should actually match your outfit. However, a purse doesn’t necessarily have to match your shoes. A purse is an accessory that you can use to express your personality if you have to wear a suit to work every day.
It is possible to update your wardrobe without having to go out and spend thousands of dollars. Just be on the lookout for the right accessories and you’ll be looking chic and trendy in no time!
