Chic accessories are the antidote when you’re bored with your look. You don’t have to go shopping for a whole new wardrobe to change things up and refresh your style – all you have to do is pick some clever accessories.
Choose the right chic accessories and you can add edge to your current look – or even transform yourself into a different person altogether. Here’s what to do, depending on what you’re up to and where you’re going…
Chic Accessories: Get The Edge
Your off-duty look doesn’t have to consist solely of a t-shirt and jeans. To give it a fashionable edge, add a cool leather jacket to channel your inner biker chick. If you want a complete change from jeans while still keeping things casual, try your favourite dress paired with some funky trainers and a denim jacket – this will make you look effortlessly cool and ready for that impromptu lunch date that’s just fallen into your lap! Instantly add a debonair edge to any casual outfit with a fun hat – go for a fedora for a masculine yet sexy edge that will make you feel pretty darn cool, aka Kate Moss.
Celebrity jewellery designer Samantha Wills offers some limited-edition statement necklaces and bracelets that are the only piece you need to wear. But Aleen Apanian from The Dark Horse has delicate jewellery suitable for a small build. A statement necklace is cool with a black or white t-shirt and jeans. Whereas delicate jewellery suits a feminine sundress or shorts and bandeau top.
Or add cuban-heeled, ankle cowboy boots with a drop-shoulder summer dress. Divine!
Chic Accessories: Interview Ready
You know you can do the job, and all you have to do is convince those interviewers that you’re up to the task. First impressions really do count. There is a lot of research that suggests people make up their minds about you within the first few seconds of meeting. Show that you are the kind of person who shows attention to detail by picking out some key pieces of subtle jewellery to add to your look. For something a little more unusual that makes you stand out from all the other candidates – check out this great 10 way necklace: you can tailor it to reflect how great you really are!
Chic Accessories: Party Time
If it’s time to party, you want to make sure that you stand out from the crowd. The easiest accessories for taking things up a notch are hair pieces and wigs. With a little research and effort, you can pick up hair extensions that clip onto your locks to blend seamlessly with your real hair. Alternatively, avoid having to wrestle with your hair for hours before going out by donning a cool wig. You can find a huge range at CelebWigs.com, so it should be pretty easy to get a standout look without having to make any effort at all!
The key to accessorising like a pro is not being afraid to experiment with different looks. If you’re in any doubt about whether you are working it or just plain wrong – ask your girlfriends what they think of your ideas. After all, they will be brutally honest whether you like it or not! The most important part of changing up your look is that it makes you feel like the fabulous girl you really are. If you feel great, it really doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks – as having a rocking style is all about confidence and self-belief, so go get ‘em!
