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.
The key to accessorizing is to have just enough and not overdo it. Pick one accessory and make that the center of your outfit. Pick dramatic and bold accessories that will be remembered or see below on how you can make similar dresses look different with different types of accessories.
Here are some ideas to get your brain thinking: Scarves, Hats, Purses, Sunglasses, Belts, Earrings, Statement necklace, Gloves, Outwear, Headbands, Tights, Socks. Finding items that are unique and grand will make you stand out like this geometric purse:

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:

The most important thing you can do is be yourself and create your own style with your accessories!
