• What Goes Best with Your Accessories

    What we wear and how we accessorize are often determined by season such as scarves in the Fall, swimsuits in the Summer, and flip flops in the Spring. I live in Louisiana which means we only have two seasons, extremely hot or fairly cold. We don’t see the leaves change color and rarely encounter snow. No matter where you live, regional fashion trends come and go, however, there are a few staple accessories that will never change. Here is my list of must-have accessories that never go out of style.

    Black Dress

    The perfect black dress can be dressed up with jewelry and high heels for a cocktail party or dressed down with a casual scarf and wedges for the office. It’s a wardrobe staple that has been a classic for decades and will never go out of style.

    Jeans

    It’s worth paying extra for jeans that fit and flatter. I recommend dark jeans made from stretch denim with no more than 2% Lycra. The fabric will follow your curves and keep its shape. There is nothing worse than wearing a pair of flattering jeans and by the end of the day, they are stretched out making you look frumpy and out of sorts. Just like the black dress, jeans can be dressed up or down for any occasion.

    Blazer

    A tailored blazer is both classic and feminine. Tailored blazers come in different styles making it easy to find one that fits your body type. A lot of businesses have gone from stuffy business suits to dressy casual. A blazer with dark jeans, a t-shirt and statement necklace creates a sophisticated casual look.

    Sunglasses

    My favorite accessory is my sunglasses. Anywhere you go, any time of the year, the sun is sure to follow you! Sunglasses not only shield your eyes from UV rays but they are a fun fashion accessory.

    Here’s a tip: keep your expensive pair in a case in your purse, so you always have them but purchase a few inexpensive pairs to keep in your car, at your desk, or in your house.
