One thing you can do to elevate an outfit and make a good look even better is accessorize! Whether it’s a statement piece or a nice little detail, accessories are the key to transforming an outfit. Read on to find out how to jazz up an outfit by incorporating the right pieces!


Jewelry

If you want a more subtle finishing touch, go for simpler pieces such as studs, hoop earrings, or a pendant necklace (I love the look of layered necklaces). These are timeless, classic pieces that pretty much go with anything. If you want something bolder, try statement earrings or a necklace with a vibrant pop of color. It’s a great way to liven up your outfit, especially if worn with muted or neutral colors!

Hair

Clips, headbands, scrunchies—there are so many fun pieces to choose from. I personally am going through a scrunchie obsession and have a drawer full of different colors and prints. Not only are they functional and useful for keeping your hair in place, they’re also a fantastic way to add some pretty detail to your outfit and show off your personal style.

Belts

Again, they’re not just functional, they’re fashionable too. They’re one of the simplest ways to make an outfit look more put-together, but other than that, they’re also flattering pieces that can define your waist and add shape. Regardless of if you go for the classic, narrow or a bolder one such as a wide belt or an embellished belt—whatever the style, they’re a great finishing touch that can complement your look.

Handbags

Let’s be real, us girls and our bags are inseparable. We carry them around not only for the obvious purpose of storage and carrying the essentials, but the right handbag can truly dress up an outfit. They come in different shapes, sizes, colors and styles. Whether it’s bright & bold or sleek & chic, the key to choosing the perfect handbag for you is considering your personal style as well as the quality and versatility of the bag.

Masks

I can’t believe I’m including this one, but hey, we just wrapped up 2020 and it would be weird not to! We all know that masks have become an essential part of our lives and that it may be a while until we can skip them altogether, but that's ok! We wear them to protect ourselves and others. Not only are they able to keep us and those around us safer, but they’re also a great way to spice up an outfit! Masks are now available in different colors and prints, making them another great accessory that you can incorporate into your looks.
