So what is a Fashion Accessory?

"A fashion accessory is an item used to contribute, in a secondary manner, to the wearer's outfit, often used to complete an outfit and chosen to specifically complement the wearer's look".

A perfect explanation. A fashion accessory 'contributes' or is 'part of' an outfit. 

Your choice allows you to express your personality and sense of style. Take an ultra simple outfit in neutral colors, add accessories and paint a picture of the person you'd like to be! 

There are two types of accessories; those we wear and those we carry. We wear shoes, boots, hats, belts, scarves, shawls, stockings, tights, ties, gloves, jewelry, a watch etc. but we carry bags, glasses, sunglasses, briefcase, luggage, pens, wallet and an umbrella.

Think you've got nothing to wear

Nothing to wear? If your wardrobe looks boring a few key accessories can transform simple into stylish.

Accessories draw the eye so choose just a few to accent an outfit or the feature you want to present. Keep it simple when surrounding your face, it's easy to get lost! 

Whether you want to style up, style down or go completely casual, you can dictate the tone with your choice of add-ons - just keep them to the same level of 'dressiness'.

Keep to scale...

Keep accessories in proportion to your body frame.

A small frame can be overwhelmed with large scale accessories, she should keep it neat. A larger woman, however, will look bigger still if her accessories are not in proportion to her body.
