Recently, I wrote a post about my favourite accessories, which got me thinking about all the essentials. We might all have different likes and dislikes when it comes to our accessories, but there are some basic items that we all need.
So today, I thought that I would share my guide to four accessories that every girl should have. (These aren’t just things that I personally love, they are items that you really do need.)
- Tailored jacket
You might have a cute day jacket, but for evenings out, it probably isn’t suitable. As well as your basic coat, you should also have a smart, tailored jacket that you can throw on before heading out for dinner or a night on the town. Something chic and elegant, and suitable for creating various looks. Black is perfect for a smart jacket, as it makes it easy to team with almost any look. However, if you would prefer a lighter style, you could always opt for a design in a nude tone, such as camel or cream. It’s best to opt for a design that’s tailored at the waist so that it doesn’t swallow your shape.
- Neutral clutch
It’s all well and good having lots of glamorous clutches in your wardrobe, but you need one simple design. That way, you know that whatever you are wearing, and whatever the occasion, you have a suitable bag.
For a clutch that can be teamed with any outfit, opt for a design in black, beige, or cream. That way, you know that whatever outfit you opt for, you have a suitable clutch. For a fantastic range of clutches, have a browse online, and see what you can find. High street stores, like New Look and Topshop, often have some beautiful clutch designs.
- Stylish jewellery
Diamonds really are a girl’s best friend, which is why every gal needs a selection of jewellery. It’s all well and good having a few pieces that you love, but you need a range of jewellery. So that whatever you are wearing, you have the perfect necklace or bracelet to add a little something to your look. The right necklace can take a boring outfit and transform it into something amazing.
Aim to build up a selection of statement pieces, as well as a variety of simpler items. Don’t just invest in necklaces, bracelets and earrings, if you have other piercings, such as a nose piercing, get jewellery for that as well. For a range of interesting designs, have a browse online, and check out the Piercing Mania website.
- Beautiful watch
A watch is one of the simplest ways to dress up any outfit, from your work wear to your evening wear. Choose the right watch – something stylish and sophisticated, and it can take your look from dull and boring to chic and stylish.
Watches might be seen as being functional items, but they are just as much an accessory as a timepiece. Pick a design that will work well with almost any outfit choice, as well as your personal style, and you’ll have the ultimate accessory.
These four accessories are things that every girl should have in her wardrobe, regardless of your sense of style.
