How to enhance your outfit with accessories 

Getting your outfit right can be a headache for anyone – especially when you’re sure that you’re combining clothes that should work well together. Is there something missing that’s preventing you from feeling confident when you leave the house?

The solution might be to accessorise! Smaller items can add just the right accent to any outfit and really make a statement. The accessories industry is huge in the UK, with an estimated £3.6 billion being spent on fashion accessories in 2020, in part because there really is something for everyone.

If you’re not a seasoned accessoriser then you may be wondering just what they add – and which ones to choose. Fortunately, we can help. Here are a few options to consider when bringing together an outfit.

Watches 

There are many reasons for wearing a watch, though you might think that the primary reason is to be practical. According to data collected by Luxe Watches, though, around 13% of people sport watches simply because they’re fashionable. It’s not hard to see why, of course. Watches can add instant luxury to any outfit which makes you stand out more from the crowd. Choose from silver, gold or leather straps with a breathtaking watch face to find the perfect one to accompany your outfits.

A high-quality watch can be one of the pricier ways to accessorise, of course. If you find one that you love and are concerned about it being damaged or stolen, you could consider taking out watch insurance for added peace of mind.

Necklaces 

From subtle and elegant to daring statement pieces, necklaces can enhance all kinds of outfits. There are so many options to suit different styles, so you may well want to own a few different pieces and switch them out depending on your outfit. Consider the metal and pendant when you purchase a necklace as these will typically be the aspects that most draw the eye.

Bags

Carrying a bag on your shoulder is an easy way to add style to your outfit – and, of course, it’s also a practical choice. Bags with different textures and materials can be great for subtly setting off what you’re wearing with an extra level of detail; experiment with a few choices and you’ll see what we mean.

Sunglasses

Sunglasses have historically been a byword for style and effortless cool, so you can be sure that they’ll do more for you than just keep the sun out of your eyes. There are vastly different styles available so you can find choices that work for looking great on the beach just as much as taking to the red carpet.

Experimenting with accessories is a great way to empower yourself and take new confidence in your appearance, so don’t be afraid to express your style!
