6 Tips When It Comes To Choosing Your Staple Accessories

Everyday dressing can become much easier if you have an array of accessories. But, there’s a method to the madness. Many of us often end up with a rack full of accessories, most of which go unworn or simply unused because we haven’t quite figured out what to pair them with. Here’s a buying guide that will help you with your shopping spree.

1. Ask Questions

Always ask yourself a few questions before buying any staple accessories. They include: Will it make my life easier? Will I wear it every day? Is the style classic and timeless?

2. Choosing A Wrist Watch

When it comes to choosing a proper wrist watch, make sure you take into account the size of the dial and material of the strap. Though they are extremely personal choices for workwear, be sure to opt for something that is scratch-resistant, waterproof and durable.

3. Statement-Making Sunglasses 

In terms of styling, they’re a bold and confident statement to make and can really help accentuate the shape of your face. So don’t be afraid to opt for sunglasses that are statement-making like oversized sunnies, gradient lenses, shapes other than round and oval, and stylish frames and stems.

4. Basic Studs

Stud earrings are often worn every day, sometimes for months on end. This is why it’s important that the earrings are in a metal you’re not allergic to, or one that doesn’t leave a residue which may cause infections or puss.

5. Comfy Shoes

One may wish to trot around in sky-high heels but they’re just not practical. Styles like pumps, ballerinas, thong sandals, kitten heels, platforms, gladiators and espadrilles are safer bets for versatile nude shoes you can wear every day.

6. Choosing Classic Handbags 

Make sure when it comes to choosing handbags you always look for ones that have enough space to carry your essentials. Always try out handbags just like you do with your outfits before buying them.
