Accessories are one of the most important parts of fashion statements and trends. When you add the right accessories to even the simplest of clothing, you can really dress up your look. No matter if it’s a flattering belt, jazzy earrings or a sparkling wristwatch, the perfect accessories make a big difference.

When you’re on your next shopping trip seeking out the latest sales and fashion trends, make sure not to impulse buy when it comes to accessories. Especially if your collection of basic necessities isn’t complete or doesn’t exist, be sure you have some idea of your fashion needs. You’ll always want several simple pieces, usually consisting of a black belt, handbag and shoes. If you’ve got the basics covered, shop for more interesting pieces that you can wear with multiple outfits. Make sure to coordinate colors.

Avoid Tired Accessories
To make the best fashion statement, you’ll want to avoid any accessories that are worn out. Jewelry that is faded or tarnished, handbags or shoes with scuffs, and creased or fraying belts can make even the snazziest of outfits look tacky. If you’re planning your next shopping trip, make note of your basics that need to be replaced. Also, treat yourself to new, shiny or sleek accessories on occasion. Exciting new pieces will not only add to the look of your outfit, but will boost your self-confidence as well.

Personal Style
Buying accessories that seem to fit with your personal fashion style may not always be the best bet. In order to properly accessorize, you’ll want to make sure the styles you are seeking go perfectly with the clothing you intend to wear. No matter if you’re shopping for shoes, handbags or jewelry, do your best to try them on in the store. Imagine how they will mix with your current wardrobe and make sure they accentuate, rather than dominate.

I know it’s gorgeous!! The dress is from IGIGI but doesn’t look like they stock that necklace :(

You can certainly go wrong with a bad accessory, but if you do it right, it really completes an outfit. I’m loving the necklace as well.
