Putting together a fancy outfit at the last minute or when you’re feeling lazy can be a bit tricky, especially if you’re attending a special function or need to make a presentation at work. Everything seems to look the same and all the outfits you put on look boring. The solution? Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize! Adding one or two items to an otherwise boring outfit can be the game changer you need to transform your style and bring your confidence back. Here are some ideas on how you can use accessories to make your outfit fancier, so you can slay without even trying.
Put on a stylish belt
These days, women’s belts come in a variety of sizes and styles, from low hanging skinny belts to embellished figure hugging ones. Depending on your outfit, adding a simple belt can lead to a complete makeover, giving you a more feminine shape, or slimming down the waist to show off your curves.
Throw on a hat
Hats are the perfect accessory to throw on when you want to hide a bad hair day, and there’s a hat available for every season, from felt winter hats to straw hats in summer. You can further push the envelope with this timeless accessory by wearing a hat with trimmings like bows, feathers and leather bands to really spruce up your outfit.
Accessorize with bags
Every woman should have a go-to handbag in her closet as an accessory that she can turn to on any occasion. One such bag is the chic Susana bucket handbag by Bidinis, which comes in different colors like pink, white and blue. Its carefully hand-cut leather looks like genuine python leather and touching it gives off a talc sensation.
Made entirely in Italy, the Susana also comes with a drawstring closure and an adjustable leather strap, which you can detach to switch up your look from a sling bag to a handle bag. The elegantly constructed lining is made from 100% cotton that feels delicate on the hands, and it comes with a zippered internal pocket; while the exterior features edgy studs at the bottom and a soft gold-toned Bidinis pendant on the front. Also, bottom studs are a nice useful detail to protect the leather.
Other bags that you can accessorize with include a patterned clutch, in which can fit all your items while still looking chic; or switch it up with a crossbody bag with a metallic chain and/or eclectic details to truly stand out from the crowd.
Sandals adorned with jewels, beads or studs can really make your outfit pop. You can wear these with a variety of outfits, from dresses to formal playsuits and they even look great as part of a casual festival outfit.
Go for a chunky necklace
Whether it has colorful beads or cool jewels, you can never go wrong with a carefully adorned chunky necklace. It adds flair and sass to any outfit, and when paired with heels, can instantly transform a simple jeans and t-shirt look from drab to fab.
Do something creative with your hair
If you’re not into hats but are still too lazy to make your hair fancy, then something like a stylish turban, an impossibly French red colored beret or a posh headscarf could just be the accessory solution you’re looking for.
