If you went to a dictionary to look up the definitions for the word “accessory”, one that you would see is “an article of dress that completes”. And that really is true because whether it’s a formal dress or a pair of distressed jeans and a plain T-shirt, if you add a few accessories, it can take your outfit from “OK” to “totally amazing”.
As with everything in fashion, accessories have trends. If you’d like to know what jewelry, purses and even footwear can have you in style this season, here are the absolute must-haves.
A bucket bag
Time to get a new purse? How about a light-colored bucket bag? It’s large enough to put all of your stuff in and cute enough to wear with just about anything.
Some Boho midi-rings
Bohemian fashion is here to stay. At least for a few more seasons. So, why not add a few midi-rings to your collection?
A pair of long leather gloves
During the wintertime, you’re going to need a pair of gloves. This season, just make sure that they’re long. (And preferably leather.)
Some thin scarves
Infinity scarves are still a big trend. But it’s also a good idea to add some thin scarves to your collection too. You cn wear them around your neck, your waist and even as a headband.
A pair of brass earrings
You probably already own a pair of gold or silver hoops and that’s cool. But this season, also look for a pair of brass earrings. They will have you looking incredibly on-trend.
A floppy hat
Wondering what you can do on those bad hair days? Get a big floppy hat. You’ll look fashion forward and no one will have to ever know that you’re using it to tame your mane.
A ‘lunchbox’ purse
Everything comes back around. As a kid, you probably took a metal lunchbox to school. And now that you’re a woman, a metal purse in a square shape can carry your phone and cosmetics.
Platform heel sandals
If you love wearing heels, platform heel sandals will be good not only for your outfits but for your back too. That’s because wedge heels provide your spine with lots of support.
If you’re rushing out of the door and you want to put on something in a record amount of time, pull your hair back into a ponytail and throw on a string of layered necklaces. There are some that even come attacked to one another (that can help to prevent them from tangling up).
A ‘multiple holes’ ring
If you’re wondering how this ring is able to run through all of her fingers, it’s because it’s one ring that has several holes. Too cute.
A metal choker
Every few years, chokers come back in style. This season, it’s a metal one that you should be on the lookout for.
A fringe purse
Another purse that is in style is a fringe one. It will be perfect for your summer tunics or Bohemian outfits.
If you want to be comfortable, all you need are a pair of flats. Preferably some cute ones like these. (The beading on the heel is exquisite.)
Roses for an updo
Romantic looks are also a part of the fashion runway right now. So, if you’re going to put your hair in an updo, add some roses to it. Some real ones will be so sweet on special occasions.
Eyewear in fun shapes and colors
Whether you need to wear eyeglasses or you simply want to look extra smart, have fun with your eyewear. Look for bright colors and odd shapes for your frames.
A wide metal belt
You might have never thought about it, but belts have trends too. Right now, it’s wide belts that are made out of either colorful cloth or metal.
A metallic headband
If you love headbands, this would be the time to get some. This metallic headband is one that we really like.
Planning to spend a day at the beach? You’ll look oh so sexy with a pair of footless sandals. We guarantee that you’ll get at least five compliments throughout the day too!
Pearls symbolize wisdom, honesty and spiritual transformation. If you can totally relate to those things, get some pearl pieces so that you can make a statement—without saying a word.
A pendant necklace
If you already have some necklace chains, just look for some unique pendants to hang on them. The bigger, the better.
There might be a part of you that thinks fashion tights are only for little girls. That couldn’t be further from the truth. They’re actually one of the biggest looks in women’s leg wear right now. Get as many as possible. You’ll be warm and fabulous-looking.
Gladiator sandals are a great complement to jean shorts or mini skirts. Yeah, definitely get a pair.
Yeah, we get it. Fingerless gloves may not keep your fingers warm. But there so adorable…who cares?
Wooden bracelets are the perfect way to decorate your arms. Especially if they are hand-painted.
We already recommended that you get some Boho midi-rings, but don’t stop there. Why not get several different kinds to put into your jewelry box? They are a such a worthwhile investment.
Some statement earrings
If you want to make a statement, get some statement earrings. Simple as that.
