One of the things I’ve noticed about fashionable women is that it’s not just their clothes that look great, their outfits are always punctuated with great accessories. Often great style is in the details.
Like fashion itself, the shapes, silhouettes and colors of accessories change with the times. Usually the coolest new looks are the hardest to find, but that trendy handbag or fresh from the runway necklace style can be combined with older clothes to create an outfit that looks new and fresh. For instance, emerald green is the color of 2013, but a pretty green stone necklace is a lot easier to wear than bright green trousers. Investing in some fun, new, trendy accessories can update your wardrobe for the season even if the current crop of fashion trends aren’t to your taste.
Handbags That Do More Than Hold Your Money
Purses don’t just hold the things you need, they complete your look. During the week I usually carry a basic black leather purse, but on the weekend I choose a purse based on what I’m wearing. A fun purse with interesting details can add some excitement to a simple outfit. A chic clutch bag can make jeans and a t-shirt look daring.
Shoes, Sandals and Boots
No, your shoes do not have to match your handbag. In fact, the coolest shoes these days are really wild and crazy. Spikes, studs, straps, color blocking, mesh, and jewels have all found their way to our feet. Personally I have a thing for cut-outs, multi-straps and kitten heels.
Scarves Are For All Ages
It seems that every one has their own ideas about how to use scarves. Some people wear them as belts. Some people tie them around the strap of their handbag. Others drape them casually around their shoulders and some wear them only as outerwear for warmth. Any way you wear them scarves are great accessories. I like to add a scarf to an otherwise simple outfit to give it some some color and pattern.
Most women agree that jewelry should be a part of every outfit. I wear a lot of costume jewelry, but fine jewelry can be a statement as well. Some of the newer trends for early 2013 include black gold jewelry and black diamonds. Examples of these trends can be found at Front Jewelers. Personally I don’t have much black jewelry, but I’d like more. Black goes with almost everything, and it’s so mysterious.
