You may have the perfect outfit sitting in your closet right now, but it may not be ready to pop if you don’t have the right accessorize to take it to the next level. Casual clothing can be simple and neutral but it can also be glamorous if you know how to accessorize properly to make it a bit more than simple. Let’s dive right in and show you how to take your casual clothing and turn them into something a bit more.
Belts are a great place to start. There are so many different types of belts available today it can actually be hard to decide which style will best accent your features and glam up your outfit. Patent leather belts are extremely popular this year and can take a neutral outfit and add a bit of intrigue to it. The slouch style belt is also a great look to consider. These belts hang low on the waist and are made to be worn with sweater dresses and tunics. This is an extremely casual look and the belt adds the glamor.
Costume jewellery is of course next on the list. Oversized jewellery is the best way to take casual wear and create an evening style that can easily be worn to a cocktail party. Silver and gold are as hot this year as they have ever been. For a more understated look consider solid and/or plain metal earrings. On the other hand if you’re looking for a bolder look there are tons of different earrings, necklaces and bracelets that have different styles, designs and colors to brighten up any casual outfit you have in mind.
Scarves are an accent you may not have already thought of. The great thing about fashion scarves is that yes, they are perfect for the winter weather but they can also be worn throughout the spring and summer months just for the fashion trend they can create. Scarves come in a number of different sizes, dimensions and lengths and of course colors, designs and fabrics. It is unlikely you will not be able to find the perfect scarf for the outfit you’re considering. Lastly, the great thing about them is their affordability.
Have you ever considered umbrellas and gloves as accessories? They may not seem like traditional accessories but they can definitely add a little flavour to your outfit, no matter where you’re going. There is nothing that cannot be used as an accessory when it comes to women’s clothing and fashion and this includes umbrellas and gloves. Hats are another great accessory that can take you from office casual to evening fabulous.
Fashion trends and casual wear can be easily spruced up for fancier occasions if you know how to utilize the accessories in front of you. Be creative and don’t let the “rules” of fashion dictate what you believe is attractive. There is no wrong way to accessorize and trial and error is the best way to learn how to accessorize perfectly.
