Clothing accessories stores are busy places these days. All of us are trimming the budget in every possible way. The big shopping spree for clothes is, for most of us, a thing of the past. However, this doesn’t mean that your wardrobe can’t be chic and trendy. For the price of a good suit, you can visit the clothing accessories store and walk out with enough to completely revamp your look! Let’s see how you can work this miracle for your own wardrobe closet.
You might begin by perusing your closet with an eye to the colours you like best, as well as the clothes you wear most often. Do the same with your shoes and handbags. Let’s say you favour shades of blue, plum and carmine. Most of us seem to unconsciously gravitate towards colours in the same area of the colour wheel. While you may have other garments outside this basic range, such as a bright red sweater, a glitzy party dress or the perennial LBD, you’ll find the majority to be in the clothes you wear most often. This provides a good starting point for updating your wardrobe at the clothing accessories store.
The types and styles of accessories which can change the look of any costume include scarves, belts, jewellery, hats and shoe ornaments. For example, a paisley silk scarf, in the right shades, may be worn with all of your favourite clothes, from jeans to that plum coloured dress.
Casual pieces of costume jewellery allow you to dress an outfit up or down. Ornate, Renaissance style necklaces and earrings can serve the same purpose. Ditto for gold or silver bangle bracelets.
With a magenta straw hat and a plum coloured velvet hat, that carmine dress of a classic cut gives you two distinct looks. Teamed with appropriate jewellery, you wouldn’t think you’re wearing the same dress. Incidentally, neither will your ‘public’!
When we think of belts, many of us tend to think of the same old leather belt with jeans. Clothing accessories stores are far more open minded on this front, with woven jute styles, rainbow and multicoloured belts in an array of materials, as well as patterned and metal styles. Consider using a long, rectangular scarf as a belt!
Shoe ornaments can be magical accessories, making a plain pump suited to both casual and dressy occasions. A retro Betty Boop shoe ornament and another of satin and rhinestones allows that one pair of shoes to travel to numerous settings, stylishly.
As you browse the clothing accessories store, keep these principles in mind. Sales clerks at these shops are often experts in matching accessories with your style and colour preferences, so don’t hesitate to ask for their help.
As you can see, a trip to the clothing accessories store can bring your entire wardrobe up to date. Diversity is the key to a budget friendly, up to date look. It’s the little touches that make it happen.
