Listen up ladies – are you guilty of neglecting your accessories? Are you guilty of buying jewelry and not wearing it? Don’t know what to do with that cute scarf you got? Accessories are just as important as the outfit you want to wear them with, and over-looking your drawer full of goodies could be one of your biggest style mistakes! Layering your necklaces, belting that blazer or just adding a statement bag can instantly turn your outfit from drab to fab! Want to know more? Here are our top 5 favorite accessories that can elevate your outfit!

Watches

A watch isn’t just practical, but dainty and dresses up your outfit. Not only does it make you look organized, but it gives a chic finish to even just a slouchy sweater and boots. We do love a good gold or rose gold watch with nude straps that will go with our whole wardrobe. Pull up your sleeves and show off that watch of yours!

Belts

A belt is perfect for cinching you in and showing off that tiny waist of yours! It dresses up everything and it turns your baggiest of clothing into something fashionably oversized. The up-and-coming trend for fall/winter 2017 is to belt your blazer. Just button up your blazer and place a belt around your waist for an even more fitted, feminine look!

A Designer Handbag

I know that most of us can’t afford a collection, but one designer handbag that is versatile and can be worn with a lot of your favorite pieces is a wardrobe must-have. It will dress up something casual like a gingham shirt and jeans and can be worn for special occasions too. We recommend getting a black leather bag for a luxury finish!

Sunglasses

Unfortunately the weather isn’t always ideal, but get those sunglasses out when you can. They scream Hollywood siren, and they are extremely forgiving – they cover last night’s hangover, or that makeup free day! They come in so many shapes and sizes too – oversized, aviator, cat eye… you are bound to find a style that you can rock!

Layering Necklaces

Before you shudder, we are not talking about layering beaded necklaces like in the early Noughties! We are talking about reaching for your finest gold necklaces and layering them in order of the length. One necklace can still be pretty dreary, but several, with a series of charms, can make your outfit that much more interesting. With a plunging v-neck or over a high-neck sweater, you can pretty much wear them with anything!
