You may dress well, but the look is incomplete without the right accessories. We can loosely define a fashion accessory as a secondary item that contributes to a wearer’s outfit. An accessory can be a purse, jewelry, gloves, shoes, jackets, boots, suspenders-the list is endless. In fact, anything other than your clothes is an accessory.
Fashion accessories for all seasons
Fashion accessories are just as important as the clothes. Some of the fashion accessories that are in style all year round are sunglasses, jewelry, and handbags. Even in the Summer, when the sun is hot and shining, you can look your fashionable best. Oversized sunglasses are the latest trend. Find what shape suits you best and match the color with your outfit. Wayfarers, aviators, cat eye, and many more styles are up for grabs.
Jewelry, nowadays, is no longer a female-dominated domain. Of course, women have always obsessed about jewelry, but designers today are designing jewelry exclusively for men. With stars like Johnny Depp walking out in jeweled finery, it is the latest trend to take the world by storm. Rings, cuffs, cuff links, tie bars, bracelets, and chains are in. There is a slight risk of overdoing it with jewelry, but do what suits you and whatever you are comfortable with. Do not follow trends blindly.
When it comes to accessories, scarves can be an inexpensive way to make any outfit complete. Even for men, scarves are a necessity for every season. During the summer, a nice silk scarf can help protect your skin from the sun while keeping you cool when a breeze passes by. In the winter, a great knit scarf can add pizzazz to your outfit while keeping the chill off your neck.
Handbags, including a range of man purses or messenger bags, are the most important yet practical accessory these days. The range, color, and designs vary as per the occasion and you can never fail with a classic style.
Another emerging trend is hats. Now this is where the trend does a 360. Instead of men, it’s women who are into hats. The trend snowballed into full-fledged fashion starting with Prince Williams’ wedding. No one could have predicted then that this would be back in vogue in such a big way.
Choosing the right accessories
A look is incomplete without the right accessories. An individual’s style reflects in the way they accessorize. In fact, the right accessories can restyle an old repeat outfit, make an inexpensive garment look expensive, give you a new style, and make you look completely different.
Just like the garment one wears, the accessory can change the entire look. They can draw attention to or away from any part of the body. Accessories can lengthen or shorten your height. An accessory can make you look elegant or boho chic and contribute to your personality, be it a handbag, earrings, belt, tie, muffler, shoe or leg warmers. It can basically add a finishing touch to your overall look.
