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!

Back to the stylish Karen Huger. This woman has an amazing sense of fashion; her personal style is fabulous and she nails it every time. I love watching her on The Real Housewives of Protomac because I am sure I would be inspired by her outfits. This woman has great charisma and she makes everything she wears stand out. She doesn’t have to try too hard to be stylish, she does it effortlessly.

Karen Huger had an interview with Paper Magazine not too long ago and she spoke about her personal style and how it has evolved in the last few years. Here is an excerpt from the interview:

My style is and has always been classic elegance with a modern twist,” Karen explained. “While I remained true to my everyday which simple fashion throughout this season, I definitely took my fashion sensibility above and beyond. I sprinkled more couture purses, dresses, and wraps throughout the season. The couture addition took my fashion to the next level.” 

The couture addition has definitely taken her fashion to the next level. I love how couture accessories a lot. They finish up her looks nicely.

Is Your Wardrobe Winter Ready?

The evenings are becoming darker, and temperatures are starting to drop, which means winter is on the way. While winter is a time for being cosy and warm (and drinking lots of hot chocolate!), it doesn’t mean that you can’t look stylish at the same time.

Curating a winter wardrobe can be a lot of fun, as there are so many different styles that you can play around with. After a difficult year without too much socialising or fun, packing up your summer clothes until next year and embracing the feeling of a new season can be a welcome change. Hitting the refresh button and trying out some new winter styles is a great way to blow away those lockdown cobwebs and breathe new life into your look.

One of the best parts of winter dressing is that there is so much flexibility with what you can wear. Keeping yourself warm is the perfect excuse for playing around with different styles and textures to create a unique look. Once you have the basic items for your winter wardrobe, you will have the freedom to style it however you would like. Take a look at our winter wardrobe essentials that form the base for dressing stylishly for the cold weather:

The Perfect Coat

One item that you will spend a lot of time wearing over the winter is your coat. Choosing a coat can be so difficult. There are so many different styles to choose from, and you need to select one that will work with all of your winter clothes. Shopping for a new coat can get pretty stressful when there are lots to choose from, but you are looking for ‘the one.’ To complicate matters further, your choice of coat doesn’t need to just work well with your clothing choices; it also needs to fit perfectly and keep you warm. All this effort is worth it, as when you find the perfect coat, it should last you for years to come.

Lots of Layers

Who doesn’t love layering? Layering is a winter essential and also an easy way to look effortlessly stylish. Layering allows you to create a whole new look just by wearing the same items differently, and you can add layers and take them away to suit the temperature. Over the winter, layers work well with jeans, so find some that fit you well and maybe by them in a few colourways to ensure that you have enough to get you through the season and beyond.

Everyday Boots

Say no to cold feet this winter and find yourself some perfect boots. Boots are, without doubt, a cold-weather essential to keep your feet cosy on even the coldest days. The great thing about boots is that they can be styled however you want to suit your look. Boots over jeans are a great choice for meeting friends and Christmas shopping trips but look just as good styled with tights and a shorter skirt for a festive night out.
