Accessories turn an outfit into your own personal look. Even if you’re wearing a $5 shirt with old pants, you can make it look like a million bucks with the right accessories! Accessories are also great because you can wear the same outfit and make it look completely different with the right add-on’s. We all know it is important to diversify since our outfits are permanently on the internet these days with social media pictures. Accessories complete the outfit and make it seem much more grand than it may be or it can help add the right accent to something that is already amazing.

At the same time, accessorizing doesn’t mean having to dress up and go all out. It should be incorporated into every outfit even the casual street style ones:
