I use to really underestimate the power of accessories. A good accessory can really bring your outfit up a notch – and it doesn’t have to be expensive. Any outfit can go from boring to stunning with the right pieces. You just need to learn to buy pieces that express your personality and the trick is to not overdo it!
I use to be pretty apprehensive to wear a hat. Hats can instantly make you look more stylish as well as being a life saver for those days you skipped washing your hair and dry shampoo can no longer save you. It doesn’t matter what the season is, you can always wear a hat. In summer caps and baker boy hats can give a cool edge to your look and they don’t have to be expensive either. Personally, I think old worn caps look best!
Don’t underestimate a belt! They’re not only for keeping your trousers up but they can be a really cool statement piece. I’ve never paid more than $10 for a belt. Whether they’re chunky or a sleek and thin they can turn in to a staple in your wardrobe. Try to make sure your belt matches your jewellery. They don’t have to match completely but keeping it in mind will make you look put together.
Shoes! They can completely change your outfit. You can take your outfit from day to night simply by changing your shoes. If you’re just wearing your favourite jeans and T-shirt, some statement boots can bring your outfit to another level. Even the most stylish outfit will look mediocre if paired with the wrong shoes. Sites like ASOS have tons of shoes for any kind of budget. Invest in a good pair of boots and you won’t regret it!
- Hair and Make up
Don’t forget you are your own best accessory! The way you style your face and hair can change up your look on the cheap! Amp up your smokey eye to take your daytime look into the evening. Add a pop of colour on your nails for a nice put together look. It’s such an inexpensive way to turn the ordinary in to extraordinary, and the little extra effort is definitely worth it!
Whether is a statement piece or dainty chains, jewellery is a perfect way to complete your look. I love layering small simple necklaces and they’re so versatile.Alternatively, you can opt for a statement piece. Pick one statement piece and tailor it to your look and body type. It’s so easy to pick up beautiful jewellery on the cheap. Some of my most favourite pieces I’ve found in second hand shops and in boutiques.
Remember with any outfit that personality is key! Learn how to express that with your accessories and it’ll make fashion so much more fun!
