Accessory Must-Haves, part 1

Happy Monday! :)
Let's keep this sweet and to the point! The Following items (listed below) are the accessories that I feel every girl should own:
(**I will be doing a separate post on Shoes that every girl should own soon!**)

1. Brown leather, braided belt.

This belt makes my list, because it can be worn in a million ways. You can simply use it as a belt with your favorite pair of jeans, or use it to belt a dress of longer sweater. Any way you use it, it's a simple piece that helps to add something to your outfit. I recommend a brown leather, because it tends to go with a lot of different fashion pieces, such as a neutral sweater, or a bright dress. If you don't already have one, I really recommend this!

2. Diamand Stud Earrings

This type of earrings are my ultimate favorite! Obviously, they don't actually have to be diamond. But any "diamond" stud with silver backings is the perfect jewelry piece that automatically helps to boost your look, and make you feel more confident. No matter what you wear, these will help you feel a little bit nicer. They go with practically everything, and even thought they're understated, sometimes that is much better than a giant pair of hoops or dramatic dangle earrings. Three words: Keep it simple!

3. Statement Handbag:
love this bag!

Choose a bag that comes in a bright color! It's a great piece to have when you want to include a pop of color and interest in your outfit. I recommend finding a color such as this green, teal, or a coral color (my favorite!). Don't go for the brightest purple or orange you can; you don't want to look like a can of neon paint exploded onto your purse. It's better to pick a more unique color that looks less tacky. It's also best when the bag has some silver or gold details on it, as shown above. The best statement bags are usually leather, since they tend to look a bit more expensive, even if you did find it on sale ;) Just remember, only use this piece if your outfit doesn't already include a lot of other bright colors. You NEVER want to walk out of the house looking like rainbow bright.

4. Fabric Scarves
Fold scarf in half. Loop around neck. Pull only one strand of the scarf through the loop. Twist loop, then pull other strand through.

Fabric scarves are a great way to spice up a dull outfit. (Knitted ones are also great, but those are usually only for colder weather, and they are sometimes work a different way anyways.) I recommend having at least one neutral (gray, cream, navy, or black) and one bright colored (yellow, blue, etc) scarf. Only wear brights with neutral outfits (remember, looking like rainbow bright is a VERY BAD thing.. usually, one interest piece in an outfit is enough.), but you can use neutral scarves with various outfit types. Plus, scarves are pretty much a year-round accessory, if you know how to use them correctly!

Well, that's all for now. I hope you enjoyed today's post! Have a great day!
Much Love, Haley Noel.
