With each new season, accessories are a must when reducing or adding clothing layers. Beaded necklaces, bangles and cuff bracelets add a feminine touch when wearing simple pieces. Belts, handbags and shoes complete your look as well as add function where needed most. The following are suggestions of some similar pieces which I have owned for quite some time. They have also seemed to stay on trend during each season depending upon how you wear it.
Beaded necklaces are a few of my favorites to add to a simple silhouette of a long dress or layered as an addition to a shirt or blouse for attitude. Also try it with your favorite suit. Choose chunky glass beads or petite dainty, or semi-precious stones. My favorite piece is a small yet long pinkish brown glass like bead necklace I acquired at a trendy yet inexpensive store called Hennes and Mauritz, otherwise known as H&M.

Bangles and cuffs make a bold modern statement when worn with a maxi dress. They add feminine power when dressed up with a clean white crisp shirt. I do own a few cuffs and bangles that are sterling silver which I acquired very inexpensively while on vacation some years ago in the southwest.

Braided belts are a cinch when trying to tie in a casual look for work or play. One of my favorite pieces I acquired from a well known mass market retailer was a deep brown wide braided belt. It is long enough for me to loop it through and create a slouched look. It can also be pulled in tightly for a neat edgy look over a blouse or dress.

A black peep toe with a wedge heel is a classic that never goes out of style. This is one of my absolute favorites and I have had them for over eight years now. I stumbled upon them in New York City one spring at Kenneth Cole. I must have walked 10 miles before I found these shoes and there was a reason why. They still fit like a pair of gloves and they get better each time I put them on. I don’t think I’ll ever find a replacement pair.

So no matter how you wear it, accessories can make your own unique personal style stand out. It’s up to you to find the pieces that can take your wardrobe the extra mile without breaking the bank. Happy shopping and accessorizing!
