Not enough can be said about accessories. Accessories are the way to dress up, or dress down, any outfit. The best way to example this is by taking the special occasion outfit, and making it work for everyday, through the use of accessories. You have to attend a wedding, and you find that perfect suit to wear. Granted it is yellow, but that is alright because yellow looks great on you. You have three pieces to this outfit. The slacks, blouse, and jacket. The jacket on these types of suits tend to be really ornate, so not much is needed in the way of accessories, but lets use that same outfit at church or in the office for a luncheon. This is a great time to show off some of your more business accessories with a special occasion suit.
Take for instance wearing a watch. We all know that wearing a watch while wearing a special occasion outfit is a major no no. For the office, however, it is a great yes yes. Wear that watch, and instead of pearl earrings, try on a solid gold hoop instead. The accessories are very much downplayed, making the outfit more approachable in the office.
Vice versa can be done of an everyday outfit that needs to be a special occasion getup in a hurry. Accessorize to make that suit the perfect outfit for that perfect setting. Use glam and glitz to bring a boring office suit to life, and the focus of the party. This can be done with long necklaces, bracelets, and ornate earrings. The possibilities are endless thanks in part to having the right additions for your outfit. This can be a great opportunity to show off your creative side.
