Accessories every woman should have in her wardrobe
I often come across two extremes when dealing with a question on which accessories every woman should have. Some girls choose the most restrained and neutral ones, and that is why they look boring and casual, no matter how many accessories they add to. Other girls rush to get all the brightest and shining like a magpie. The result is a bunch of mismatched accessories that just keep dusting in the closet.
So I would like to give you a list of mandatory accessories that must be in our wardrobe. If these items are in your wardrobe, then the question of how to add a zest to your image will be solved in seconds!
Let’s start with handbags. There are three basic bags: large, medium, and evening ones. The base bag should be black, dark blue or dark grey, no matter how boring it sounds. It’s better to invest in quality and buy a more expensive but neutral bag than to buy trendy models but made of leather substitutes. But the other bags could be more simple. You should have a small handbag with a chain or with a shoulder strap in the base wardrobe. It will perfectly suit both a coat and jacket and will be suitable for both business and everyday looks. The principal thing is to make the right choice of fittings color. Nowadays the laws of fashion are becoming more liberal and stylists look more calmly at the combination of metal elements of unique colors in one appearance. You should not abuse this when considering which accessories every woman should have. That’s the thing about everyday wearing. But you shouldn’t forget about the evening either! Most of the looks for a corporate or birthday party will not go due to the lack of a clutch. Usually “losers” of cocktail style rarely wear a beautiful dress and do not think about buying a clutch at all. To avoid being in this situation, get the evening variant of the clutch made of satin or guipure. More advanced users should have a bright clutch of unusual shapes with sequins. It will help you create a beautiful evening look if you combine it with any column dress. Along with costume jewelry.
Speaking of costume jewelry, I’d like to say a few words about bracelets and necklaces. There are three mandatory components: a bracelet, a necklace, and a watch. Bracelet shapes and styles can be various. Each type of person has certain solutions, but every girl should have a wide shiny metal bracelet. It will fit everything: a long-sleeved blouse and a pencil skirt, a cocktail dress, jeans, and t-shirts. Necklaces are also available in original styles and types, but there is a universal variant that can beautify any girl. It’s a long chain with a pendant. It visually pulls out the silhouette and adapts to the outfit. You can wear it over a T-shirt with long shorts or in your office look. The last obligatory accessory is a men’s watch. The roughness of the shape emphasizes the tenderness of your wrist. You can wear it with everything except wide bracelets. But you can get an interesting combination with thin bracelets. Your manicure should be neutral.
Belt and strap
We sometimes forget about this element. Many girls use a belt only as a functional element for jeans. However, the proper belts can decorate a naughty dress, blouse, or jacket and are accessories every woman should have. Wide, corset type is suitable for dresses from the middle of the hip and below. You can wear thin belts over elongated blouses, coats, and long cardigans. A shirt-dress will benefit from this addition. You can also have a textile belt for summer, which is easy to tie. It turns any loose sundress or tunic into a transformer: whether you want to tie it at the waist and visually extend your legs or to lower the belt and hide your stomach emphasizing slender legs and hips.
Now let’s talk about hats. Many people think hats are too festive or old-fashioned. If you don’t want a hat to make you Sophie Lauren, then you need the hat’s edges to be a little “relaxed” and to have a discreet accent on it such as a bow, feather, chain. If you have a graphical face, you can have a stiff hat, but if your face’s features are soft, then you better have it a little “tired”. We should select the diameter of the hat fields based on the size and type of our face. Summer ones should be more graphic. You can limit the basic wardrobe to just two successful hat variations: for summer and winter. It is up to you to decide if to limit yourself to these options or not.
But let’s get back to the latest winter accessories. Don’t forget about gloves. They not only warm your hands but also are a highlight of the image. I like long gloves because we can wear them not only with common coats and short-sleeved fur coats but also with regular sleeves coats. Particularly if they are knitwear. Nobody canceled the usual warm gloves either. Let’s choose the right color and size, and this accessory will be your faithful companion in the cold. And don’t forget Lagerfeld’s covenant: gloves without fingers can add spice to even the most boring and strict looks.
Scarfs and kerchiefs
Let’s talk about scarves. Cashmere or alpaca scarves are accessories every woman should have. It is beautiful, warm, and always looks expensive. Do not rush to buy bright scarves for all occasions, although I like to repeat, “if your look failed, you can always add a scarf”. Better start your collection with a nice gradient kerchief. It looks restrained and has a stylish accent, but not too “provocative”. Thanks to the use of several shades, it will fit into almost any image! However, we should not forget about accents when we pursuit of universality. Start with the colors of either a leopard or a snake. But remember: it’s only an option for casual style! You’ll only ruin the office look with that accent! A scarf that matches your eye color will do for your strict looks (give others a reason to compliment you).
The useful variant is sunglasses with smoked glasses. Just for the cases when you’re lazy to makeup. Sunglasses always looks dramatic, they do not look weird even indoors, and they do not limit the view, so you will not feel like a blind mouse! Sunglasses are accessories every woman should have in her wardrobe.
