Heading out tonight, or have a big date planned for the weekend? That’s great! But, do you know what you’re going to wear? The right accessories can make you shine like a star!
You may think certain shoes or whichever watch you wear won’t change much. However, the right sneakers may change the whole look of your style. Even changing from glasses to contacts could alter your look and better define your features. Colors could even play a big part too!
You may go with the classic button-up, slacks, and dress shoes. But why not throw in some pizzaz with a certain tie or changing the shoes out for some nice! Maybe even try adding a colorful hat to spice up the wardrobe. You can add anything and it will add flavor to the fit!
Let’s look at some examples!
Visors to block the sun but bring a flame to your outfit
You could be like the majority of Americans, and wear a hat or cap with your outfit. It’s not uncommon, in fact, it’s more uncommon to see someone without head-wear. Caps are also unisex, meaning anyone could wear them! And, hats have been in American history and style since our founding times.
There are many kinds of head accessories to choose from as well; You could roll with a classic sporty baseball cap, south-western cowboy hat, or even a classy flat cap depending on your style. Each can add its own twist to your outfit, definitely making you stand out more.
A bonus to caps adding to your style would be that they also help block the sun. As it is the original purpose to ‘cover’ your eyes from sunlight allowing you to continue looking forward. This is why the Military refers to their hats as ‘Covers’. Though the ideas and designs of hats have changed over the years, they are still great to add some diversity to a wardrobe.
Ties, Bow-ties, and neckpieces.
Collared shirts are a normal piece of clothing for both males and females. But, with a collared shirt comes the chance to add something extra to the look. These additions can come as ties and bow-ties or as pins on the collar. Or even left open to display necklaces or neckpieces!
Ties used to be the standard for a businessman, but that doesn’t mean women can’t wear them either. And rather than thinking of a formal suit style, you can go for a fun style with ties! Imagine going out on a date and wearing a fun tie that shows your playful side or love of animals. There are so many different ties out there that you could find one for any side of playfulness or hobby you wish to express on the outside.
The fun doesn’t stop there, you can even trade the normal tie out for a bow-tie. It might have been perceived as the classic nerdy look, but the nerdy look has started to trend as well! If the classic tie or bow tie doesn’t suit you, there are also necklaces or pins for your collar. These can add a little more personality to your clothing with a personalized touch.
Pins can be plastic or metallic and can be from random interests or hobbies. There are even some pins from the cult classic, ‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail’. These could be added to your collar or just below it to show off your fascination with the Cult Classics, or any other like you may have.
Finally, necklaces could be worn or shown to also display an interest. Or just worn because you like the golden or silver shiny parts. Everything you add to your outfit is an accessory after all! Necklaces or neckpieces are no exception.
Shoes, Sneakers, and Boots
Footwear can also make a big statement and can either make or break an outfit. Imagine your favorite basketball player wearing their highlighter pink or green Jordans. They stand out and almost notice them first before the person wearing them. The same can be said for all types of shoes, they make a statement as much as the whole outfit.
Now, of course, you’d want to follow some kind of complementary color sequence here. But, there’s a lot that could be matched together with black or other darker colors. However, the type is something you’d want to match too. You wouldn’t want to wear those highlighter Jordans to a business meeting.
But if you’re on a date, maybe you’d want to dress more casually. So maybe you’d wear the new Wmns Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG ‘Court Purple’ to show your sporty side on the date. Plus, with their white color, you’d be able to match it with light or dark compliments!
Besides sneakers or dress shoes, you could always go with some basic black boots. They not only add a subtle look but add an inch or two to your height! Of course, some boots come with nice designs that can spice your look. There’s even heel-boots for women that add inches in a heel sense, but look exactly like boots in the fashion sense!
Rings, Bracelets, and Watches
You may think that only the rich or married have rings. You are not completely wrong, but there are more common basic silver and gold bands that any common person could acquire. They also make quite a statement, going back to older times rings meant a lot depending on how you wear them.
Rings come in many different shapes and sizes and can be customized to fit whatever you want to do. They can display wealth, family, prestige, or power. Bracelets could also display wealth or power, but are more for cosmetic and accessory purposes. Bracelets could also be made of metals, or of other materials like the high-school friendship bracelets of long forgotten.
Finally, watches are another nice accessory that comes with usefulness! Watches can tell time and make a statement all at the same time. You could go with a metallic watch, that can be silver or gold, and stand out in an outfit. Or you could go with a black plastic watch band that could match any style or fit. Don’t let that derail you from choosing your favorite color though!
Accessories add to your outfit
There are many things you can add to your outfits. And as you can see, changing just the shoes or adding a hat or tie can add to the style. That’s the whole point and goal of accessories. They are to add and make the outfit better with greater style or look.
Next time you go out on a date or a visit to the town, try adding a little something extra to your wardrobe. See if someone else notices, you’ll more than likely receive a compliment or get asked where you got something! The whole point of an outfit is to bring out your style and your likeness to show the world who you are on the outside.
Accessories help you with that! And accessories should be fun and can be worn with almost any outfit. So try some new ones out, see what you like and what you don’t. But remember, have fun with it!
