what’s an easy way to glam up your outfit? it’s simple. add accessories. from costume jewelry to belts and yes, handbags, accessories are a simple easy way to add spit and polish to any outfit. today, i’m sharing five accessories that i reach for day-in and day-out. while i favor a classic aesthetic for my day-to-day look, an on-trend shoe, handbag, or bauble will keep my ootd looking modern and stylish. today, i’m sharing a few accessories that caught my eye for summer. and i’ve added a youTube video where i chat about one of my all-time favorite patterns. can you guess what it is? well, you’ll just have to scroll down and find out.
wedges are definitely trending this summer. and why not? they are as comfortable as they are stylish and if you think you can’t wear heels due to foot issues, try a wedge on for size. slides are also popular this year and embellishment of any kind is seen everywhere. especially on the heel. this year it’s all in the details.
not only are scarves a beautiful and chic addition to any outfit, but they keep you warm to boot. or add panache to a handbag when not in use. silk is durable and lasts forever. but skinny handkerchiefs tied around your neck or wrist are on trend for 2017.
belts have definitely been a thing of mine for years. it doesn’t matter if they are on trend or not, to me, belts add polish to any outfit. what can i say? i just plain like them. skinny, wide, leather or fabric there is a belt out there to suit your taste. whenever i shop, i always head to the belt department to see what new treasure i can add to my collection.
so many handbags, so little time. but if you want to add elegance or fun or a casual chic vibe to your outfit pick the right handbag. mini bags are trending this year as are drawstring, floral, and handbags with words. which reminds me of graphic tees. whatever your budget, whatever your preference there are soooo many great handbags to choose from. and they last for years. even decades.
by now, everyone is familiar with statement necklaces. but this year it’s all about a statement earring. it instantly adds glamour to your outfit! from mismatched, yes, there are earrings that coordinate but do not match (i kind of like it), to crystal, to beads the trend in 2017 is all about statement earrings. this time around think sculptural.
