Part of being fashionable means changing up your look to highlight the latest trends of the season. Unfortunately, buying an entirely new wardrobe each season is a bit unrealistic for many people. So how do you stay trendy without spending a small fortune on clothes and accessories several times per year? It’s actually fairly simple. By choosing the right accessories and pieces for your wardrobe, it’s fairly easy to maintain a fashionable appearance that changes with the season without spending breaking the bank.
Sunglasses make a great accessory for any season — as long as it’s sunny outside, it’s okay to wear sunglasses. The good news is, you don’t have to spend a lot of money on sunglasses to look like you did. It’s easy to find women’s and men’s celebrity sunglasses styles at decent prices if you know where to shop. Consider shopping for sunglasses when your favorite stores are having large sales or peruse the internet to find great deals on eyewear, including sunglasses. Ideally, it’s good to have a few pairs of sunglasses that complement a wide range of outfits. So you might choose a pair that works well with your workout gear, a pair for everyday wear, and a pair that are a little more dressy.
Carry a Bag
Women can easily dress up any outfit by carrying a fun, stylish handbag. Consider purchasing a couple of cheaper handbags each year that feature the latest color trend and purchase one or two designer handbags in neutral shades that you can use for several years. While most men don’t carry handbags, they shouldn’t hesitate to grab a nice messenger bag or briefcase to use on a regular basis. If you’re into outdoor activities or frequently go from work to the gym, a stylish backpack is also a good option.
Add a Belt
Belts come in a variety of styles and colors, and because they are relatively cheap, they are a great accessory to wear when you want to spruce up your look. Women can wear belts with pants and skirts, but it’s also a good idea to wear a belt with a dress to accent your figure. Men should opt for nice leather belts for work or during the winter months, and choose a woven leather belt — or something similar — for casual wear during the warmer months. Both men and women should consider using belts to add pops of color to their outfits and choosing belts with fun belt buckles to accentuate their personality.
Put on Jewelry
Both men and women can use jewelry to spruce up a boring outfit. Women should consider wearing bracelets, rings, and earrings in a fun color or style to upgrade their little black dress or their best work attire. Men can choose a nice ring, thick bracelet or watch, or stud earrings to spruce up their look a bit. When choosing your jewelry, it’s important to keep the overall style of your outfit in mind. Choose more expensive pieces to dress up an outfit and cheaper, costume jewelry for a fun, casual look.
The accessories you choose to wear with an outfit complete the look, so you need to have an overall style idea in mind when choosing your accessories. Always choose accessories that work well with what you’re wearing and complement the overall style of the outfit — you don’t want to wear casual accessories with a dressy outfit, but it’s okay to dress up a casual outfit a bit with more dressy accessories. Also, keep in mind, your accessories should complement the season. Choose options the feature on-trend colors and styles to create a fresh, fashionable look.
