Some women are heavily vested in fashion, and others, not so much. Nevertheless, no matter which side of the spectrum you fall on, there are some key things that you cannot afford to have absent from your wardrobe – and those are your stash of accessories! Did you also know that in 2017, the female accessories market in the United States alone produced over $31 billion US dollars in retail sales? Naturally, most women love to complement their dressing with all sorts of accessories. Taste and style are the key factors that determine what accessories ladies choose. What is your favourite accessory and how often do you use it to compliment your style? Here are six essential accessories that every woman should consider having in her closet.

 * Complimentary jewellery *

 Jewellery fashion has improved significantly over time, from consisting of teeth, bones, and stones to manufacturers forging ornaments from the most precious stones known to man today. Women have exploited the ornamental value of beautiful jewellery for ages, and people are continuously experimenting with varying sizes, shapes, colours, and materials to match evolving tastes. 

The must-haves in today’s world are mainly earrings, necklaces, rings, and bangles. Consider investing in putting together a decent collection of the above-listed jewellery to match your clothes for any occasion. Women express their personalities through the jewellery they wear and choosing the right ornaments for the right occasion also subtly highlights your best features. Therefore, know when to rock those bracelets, necklaces, and earrings that compliment you the most and make you stand out from the crowd no matter where you find yourself.

 * Sunglasses *

An estimated 239,000 people in the UK spent over £200 on sunglasses between 2015 and 2019 alone. People may not regard sunglasses as much of an accessory and may downplay its benefits, but they can have an enormous impact. A nice pair of sunglasses can change your face, add spice to your style and bring a little touch of class to your overall look. The American Optometric Association recommends wearing sunglasses during the daytime because it shields your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays, preventing cataracts and other long-term eye defects. 

Sunglasses are therefore a necessity in every woman’s wardrobe not just for fashion, but as a plus health wise too. Aside from giving you comfortable vision, they are also a fashion statement that compliments pretty much any outfit be it casual or formal. Feel free to experiment with diverse designs and colours of sunglasses to find types that best suit you. You can check out www.eyeglasses.com for all your sunglasses needs.

* A classic belt *

Who said belts are only meant to hold your trousers or skirts in place? Belts are also a must-have because they are fashionable and do a great job of highlighting your figure by making you seem slimmer than usual.  There are stylish belts in various colours and sizes for women with different body types, that can help bring out their best. You should consider investing in a classic belt or two and experiment with a host of clothing combinations to see which one works best for you. After identifying the one that suits you most, do not hesitate to rock it!

* Handbags *

Data from Statista shows that women in the UK own an average of fourteen handbags! The modern-day woman relies so heavily on handbags in today’s world that going somewhere without it proves very difficult for them.  Aside from being a strong fashion statement, bags are also functional in carrying essential items such as cash, keys, medicines, just to name a few. They can also be used for a variety of occasions, whether it is for work, a formal event or even a hangout with friends or a trip to the beach.  Much like jewellery, handbags reflect the personality of their user and come in very handy. You should therefore include several good bags in your wardrobe for added style and variety. Also, choose bags based on the type, occasion, and dress.

* Hats *

Big hats, small hats, colourful hats…one aspect of female fashion that has stood the test of time is hats.  Hats primarily shield the face and neck from sunburn and also bring a touch of life to your outfit. If you spend lots of time outdoors, a hat will protect your hair from possible damage caused by the sun and rain. Hats are also very versatile and come in different sizes, colours and material, ready to wear at all times of the day and to all places. It appears that caps remain trendy as well, with no effort whatsoever. Consider adding this timeless classic to your wardrobe and experiment with various looks that suit your style.

* Shoes *

What are your favourite kinds of shoes? Shoes have long been one of the most popular fashion statements women make, and it is no secret that women love them. You should include a variety of shoes in your wardrobe to give it an added dimension. In 2014, ladies’ footwear sales reached a staggering $24.6 billion, representing the shoe industry’s most dominant segment.  It would be best if you stocked up on as many types of shoes as possible to have the right kind for the right occasion. Include sneakers, flats, boots, stilettos, and different types of sandals to give you a wide range of pairing options with your outfits no matter where you are stepping out to.

No matter your taste and whether you like to keep it simple or not, there is something for everyone in the world of fashion. So, brighten up your wardrobe today, and hopefully with these practical tips, your closet is always going to be trendy and help you stand out without breaking the bank.Accessories

    These are all fantastic must-have accessories, Missy! I am a lover of handbags and shoes. While heels are so pretty, I’m a little more obsessed with the comfort, so I tend to go for ballet flats or some cute sneakers with support in them.
