If there is anything I can’t help buying are handbags, shoes and other accessories to help me enhance my dressing style. Everywhere I go I have to buy a pair or two of shoes and hand bags to match.

If there is anything I can’t help buying are handbags, shoes and other accessories to help me enhance my dressing style. Everywhere I go I have to buy a pair or two of shoes and hand bags to match.

Nowadays life has been made easier because in most good shops where one can buy quality handbags, there are always shoes to match and other accessories like scarves too.

Sometimes I realize I have shoes which I haven’t worn in months and seem to have nothing to dress them with, but this dilemma is not just with me, many women buy certain accessories to go with certain outfits and never wear them with anything else.

Or, they buy one thing, like a handbag or watch, and wear it with everything they own, from workout gear to evening apparel.

Still others are so devoted to following the latest fashion trends that they don’t really understand the impact certain pieces have on their overall image – like oversized earrings, no hose, or slip-on shoes.

Selecting shoes for a handbag presents endless options, depends on the outfit being worn and shouldn’t necessarily match. One can also choose footwear to wear with a handbag, such as wearing a printed shoe to go with a simple handbag design.

Accessories present a world of opportunity when used correctly, from pulling together unrelated pieces to transforming an outfit on a moment’s notice. You can use them to look taller, thinner, richer, or whatever – and you don’t have to spend a fortune to do it. 

In fact, once you understand how to accessorize correctly and start putting these little pieces to work for you, you’ll spend less and do more with what you already have – and create your own distinct style by doing so.

What accessories can do is to save you from having too many unused items in your wardrobes, you could take one garment and wear it dozens of different ways just by changing a few fashion accessories, you could wear the same dress to a bridal shower, a barbeque, the theater, and a church service and no one would know!

Well, that’s one of the powers of accessories: the ability to change an outfit from one mood to another. When used properly, accessories can take you from the board room to the ball room with a minimum of fuss.

Here are some other things that accessories can do:
• Draw attention to your assets
• Pull attention away from your trouble spots
• Give a variety of looks to a single outfit
• Make a garment look expensive
• Revive or update classic clothing styles
• Relate different items of your outfit to each other
• Define your personal style

If you had no idea that you could use accessories to do so much for your style, then know that you can enjoy the polish that well-chosen accessories can give.

From finishing an outfit to drawing attention away from figure challenges, accessories can do the job – so long as you know how to accessorize correctly.
