Can’t afford to splurge on a whole new wardrobe this season? Don’t worry. You can use all sorts of fun and affordable accessories to jazz up the outfits you already own. Shop your own closet, and try pairing garments you’ve not worn together before. Keep it creative, and don’t be afraid to experiment a little with fashion.
Superior style on a shoestring
When you need a bit of head warmth, but you don’t want to wear a hat, try a turban, a bold barrette, or a big beautiful headscarf. Add intrigue while protecting your peepers when you don a sensational pair of wayfarer or aviator-style sunglasses. Belts are another easy accessory, and they’re not just for waif thin girls. Show off your fetching hourglass figure with a wide belt that gently encircles your waist, suggests Stylecaster magazine.
Even a super casual jeans-and-tee look can be taken into the style stratosphere when you wear it with a big chunky necklace. Having a bad hair day? Plop on a wide brimmed hat and get on with it. If dolling up is out of the question, because you’re crunched for time or just don’t feel like dealing with cosmetics, smear on a splash of red lipstick and it will look as if you rolled right out of bed looking that good in the morning.
Keeping things together
Carry your little necessaries in an embellished crossbody bag. This super savvy style piece is functional as anything, and it less likely to be snatched than a handheld pocketbook. Next time you slip into a short skirt, add a pair of over-the-knee socks to your outfit for a flirty look that can’t be beat. Take your flirtation to the next fashion level when you add lace extenders by BCS Boutique to your boots. Coordinate or complement your outfit and add a dash of pizzazz to your legs with cute extenders and boot cuffs.
Boot cuffs let you wear thinner socks over your foot while sporting a cable knit cuff up top where it shows.Look for reversible, two-tone boots cuffs that can be worn different ways.
Another cool and flirty look involves your boyfriend’s baseball cap. This is an especially fun look when you wake up at his house and don’t have time for a shampoo, remind fashion mavens at Stylecaster.
Let there be layers
When it doubt, layer it up. Winter is the ideal time for building garment layers because they keep you warmer than single-layer dressing. Your layers can be as stylish as you like. Just be sure to start with a lightweight camisole underneath, and add items from there.
There is no limit to the number of cool fashion accessories you can own. Don’t wear them all at once, and you’ll do fine. Be creative, be yourself, wear what you like, and don’t forget to smile. Nobody dresses exactly the way you do, and we think that’s a wonderful thing.
