Fashion Accessories: Do You Own These Style Staples?

From hats to sunglasses, accessories are a great way of adding style and personality to an outfit. You can use them to dress up an outfit for a special occasion like a wedding or a girls night out.  But they can also be used to add interest to basic pieces to create a new look each time. Many of us buy current on-trend accessories on impulse, only to find they look outdated within a short time. There is nothing wrong with this, but it can be wasteful and a drain on your finances. Thankfully there are some accessories which never go out of fashion, no matter how you wear them. So to fill your accessories wardrobe with timeless style staples, use this checklist to help you.

Pearl Necklace

Pearl necklaces have been a must-have accessory for fashionistas for decades. Whether you wear a single string of pearls or layer them, they can add instant class and glamour to an outfit. Wear yours with an evening dress for an elegant feel or add to your favourite band t-shirt for an interesting clash of styles. Pearl necklaces can also be worn in your hair or added to your handbag for a unique look. In addition to a necklace, pearl bracelets and earrings can also be fantastic additions to your collection. You can find and buy pearl jewellery online or in most reputable jewellery stores to suit any kind of budget.

Leather handbag

Whether you’re going on a weekend away or a date, a leather handbag is a valuable accessory to own. They are build to last, easy to keep clean and come in an array of styles and colours. They also work well when combined with casual or formal attire. You can find leather handbags online from specialist leather retailers and handbag stores. Think carefully about how much you usually like to carry around with you to help you choose the most suitable size possible. Also, try not to choose colours and designs which are too contemporary. Instead look for classic designs in black or tan leather which will work well with any outfit. And being a mum does not mean you shouldn't carry your babies essentials around in style, for some great ideas, take a look at this.


A watch is both stylish and practical, making it a must-have accessory for every woman. You can wear it alone or team it with similar looking bracelets and bangles. While many people only wear watches for work, they can look chic when worn with evening dresses for special occasions too. Again, try to stick to materials and colours which aren’t too contemporary. Colourful watches might look good now, but they may not stand the test of time or complement every outfit you wear. When it comes to watches, you can’t go wrong with black, silver or gold. To start your search for the perfect watch, look for reputable women’s watch retailers online.

If you don’t own some of the items on this list, it might be time to get shopping. No matter what your budget is, always buy the best quality you can afford rather than going for cheaper alternatives. This will ensure these accessories look good for decades to come.
