When you are a woman who is into fashion, going shopping can sometimes be a little overwhelming. There are so many different designers brands and stores to choose from, all who are throwing different products at us, trying to persuade us to part with our cash. Trends come and go so quickly that staying on top of what’s hot and what’s not can sometimes be a little exhausting! That’s why it is good to know that you have a few classic items in your closet that you can rely on. Most of us already know the basics of failsafe clothing – the tailored trouser, the little black dress, the stylish overcoat. But what about when it comes to accessories? The things you choose to pair with your outfit can say a lot about you and can potentially change the whole look, too. Here are the top three accessories that every woman needs in her closet, no questions asked.
A great bag
When most of us were younger, we tended to buy a multitude of cheap handbags and purses – only to find that a few months down the line, they had either broken or were already falling to pieces. As far as all accessories go, womens bags may not be the cheapest things on the planet, but they are something that it is worth investing your money in. Opt for a functional bag that will serve its purpose while still looking stylish. For example, it is usually best to buy a grey or black bag – something that will go with most outfits you have. Look out for various compartments too, as this will make storing your stuff so much easier.
A statement belt
Belts these days are so much more than what they used to be. We now use them as a fashion statement as much as a practical part of our outfit, so getting a good versatile one is a must. Firstly you will need to decide whether you need a belt that fits around either your hips or your waist. If you like to show off your hourglass figure, a waist belt can help to accentuate your curves. If you are a fan of low-rise jeans, why not opt for a leather belt with a detailed buckle? This kind of design can add interest to even the most basic of outfits.
A quirky hat
Hats can be a great way to easily update a look, or add a certain vibe to an otherwise simple outfit. Fashion hats generally don’t keep your head particularly warm – but then again, that’s not exactly the point of them! What kind of hat you go for depends on your personal style. If you like to dress in a smart yet feminine way, opt for a wool hat with a wide, floppy brim. Dress in a slightly more edgy way? A trilby or a fedora with a colored or metallic trim can add a touch of 70’s magic to your look.
