Style is a combination of so many components that you can work it in whatever way you want. But when you are turning your attention to accessories, it’s about making sure that each accessory is one part of the complete picture. Whether it’s hair accessories or handbags, or even making sure that your makeup highlights your attributes properly, the art of choosing the right accessories is not as easy as you think. With this in mind, what does it take to choose the right accessories?

Pick a Signature Accessory

The first thing to state is that signature accessories make you feel great and will work with multiple outfits. Accessory options can be overwhelming, but this is why you need to start with one item that you have complete faith in. A watch is such a simple accessory but can communicate so much, especially when you look at luxury brands. You can very easily shop luxury women’s watches and find the right style for you. When you’re ready to add more accessories, you can create balance by choosing one statement piece which dominates your look. You can either do this in terms of colour or size, but then you can start to add more subtle additions. 

Think About What What Your Fashion Choices Demand

Accessories provide accentuation. A simple outfit that is bereft of colour doesn’t look great, but using accessories to add some colour or patterns to a style can make your look far more elevated. Accessories are fantastic in this way. And when you start to think about the outfit choices and what the right accessory could do to it, you can use accessories to change the entire feel of something that you wear on many different occasions. For example, the classic little black dress is perfect for work when you pair them up with flats and a blazer. But you can then change into a pair of letters and add some bling earrings for a cocktail party or a night out. The right accessories will automatically transform the feel of one simple item of clothing.

Don’t Worry About Getting It Perfect

You may agonize over your accessories, and think that the accessories have to match. But it’s important to remember that when you choose accessories that go together, they may not scream fashionable. If you feel that you are going too far with your accessory choices, start simple. And one colourful accessory to your neutral outfit. But then get inspiration by bold combinations of colour. You can look at any boards on Pinterest for inspiration, or you can use a colour wheel. A very simple thing, but it can show you how to make your look perfectly controlled without going over the top.

Accessories are fantastic for adding extra depth to your style. They are the finishing touches, but when you feel that your style needs a shakeup, or you don’t know where to begin, focus on these three rules, and we can guarantee you won’t go far wrong!

 

 

Style Icon: Twiggy

The Style Icon for the month is the stylish Dame Lesley Lawson aka Twiggy. This fashion guru has been in the limelight since the 60s and she is still very much a busy bee. She started modelling from the tender age of 16 in 1966, and still models even though she is now in her 70s. She has designed a clothing collection for Marks & Spencer and the collection is so stylish. Twiggy still has her style game on and looks amazing for her age. I am a huge fan of her personal style. I would love to look as good as she does in my 70s. She always looks so well put together. Apart form modelling, Twiggy is also an actress and a singer. She released an album, Romantically Yours, in 2011.

In her modelling days, Twiggy was known for her long, false eyelashes, exaggerated eye makeup, and close, cropped hairstyle. The London-based model had a distinct look and it worked really for her. She was one of the big supermodels back in the 60s. I always love seeing her modelling pictures. She always looks so good. This picture below is one of my favourite shots of her in her young days. She has the most beautiful facial features ever!

Twiggy’s personal style is still right up my street. She has a very feminine elegant style and it works great for her. You can easily catch Twiggy wearing stunning dresses and skirts. Here is a brief quote from an interview she had sometime ago about her clothing collection for Marks & Spencer –

I wanted to design clothes that are stylish, easy and comfortable to wear. 

I’m very into tailored jackets, so there is a navy one with a red trim that you can pair with trousers with a thin red stripe down the side, too.

My Winter Wish List

It is getting cold in Cheshire which is okay since I am almost ready for the Winter season. When it comes to my wardrobe for the colder months, I like to ensure I have all I need to slay in style but stay comfortable at the same time. Style and comfort go together in my fashion world, which is why I make sure I have all the fashion winter essentials. I currently have a couple of items I am yet to get on my Winter wish list. Hopefully,the sales in the shops will start soon, so I can grab everything before the chill really hits.

Many of the items on my shopping list are boots and trainers. Some of my old boots have worn out after so many years so they need replacing. I like to invest in good quality footwear because I like them to last, and if they’re also great value for money it’s a win win! This is why you won’t catch me shopping in some shops, as I’ve had to learn the hard way, and when it comes to footwear, it is quality over quantity, every time!

Here are 3 items I am currently lusting after in the footwear department –

 

 

Women’s High Biker Style Military Calf Boots With Chunky Block Heel And Lace Up Detail £32.99

I am so in love with these Calf Boots. I really like the high biker style, that’s what caught my eye. Calf length lace up boots are perfect for Winter and since I don’t have a pair like this yet, I would really love to add these to my boots collection.

It would be great styling them with a nice pair of blue jeans and a sweater. The price tag of £32.99 works for me and I like the chunky block heel too!

 

 

Women’s Faux Leather Stiletto Heel Riding Calf Boots With Zip Fastening And Pointed Toe £19.99

This pair of boots would look amazing on a night out. I can picture myself wearing these with a little black dress and tights. It can also be paired with a pair of jeans and a dressy top. The pointed toe and zip take the boots to a whole new level.

I can see this style of boots being very popular this Winter season. It is a pair that can easily take you from the office to the bar! And these are very affordable at £19.99.

 

 

High Heel Wedge Hi-Top Trainers Ankle Boots £14.99

My Winter wish list for footwear would not be complete without a pair or two of trainers. I currently have my eye on these stunning black high heel wedge hi-top trainers ankle boots. I have a pair like this already, but it is all black. So, grabbing these with a white sole would be a great addition to my trainer collection.

This pair would also come in handy for the school run, having to take two toddlers to school, and get them there on time means we must move very quickly. There is no room for heels, I admire anyone who can walk in heels, let alone run! Trainers like this would do for me thank you.

What do you think of boots and trainers? Did any catch your eye? You can grab these and more on the Uppersole website. They have footwear for men, women and children. So, you can shop footwear for the whole family in one place!
