Effortless Elegance: Key Accessories for a Polished Look


Effortless Elegance: Key Accessories for a Polished Look

Have you ever looked at the clothes in your wardrobe and thought ‘meh’? While there is always the option of replacing your existing outfits with new ones, don’t go rushing off to the local shopping mall just yet. Instead, take a moment to consider the power of key accessories. As they can give even the drabbest ensemble an instantly elegant lift. Accessories can bring a touch of luxury and sophistication to anything you might wear. But only if you know which ones are the best to include. In this guide, we’ll showcase some of the key accessories every girl must have to create a polished look. Add any of these to your attire, and you are sure to raise a few eyebrows with your heightened level of style.

1. Sunglasses

Sunglasses, such as classic Prada shades, are a terrific accessory to wear all year round, but especially during the summer months.

Not only do they protect you from the damage to your eyes that could potentially occur from harmful UV rays, but from a style perspective, they can also immediately transform your look from ordinary to extraordinary.

The great thing about sunnies is that they come in lots of different styles including rounds, cats-eye, square frames and the classic aviator style. So, pick one that best suits your face shape and is adaptable enough to be worn at the beach with your bikini or at dinner wearing your favourite dress.

2. Statement heels

There is no vibe better than rocking a classy pair of Vince Camuto heels or deluxe Chanel slingbacks for that important client presentation or plush cocktail party you have been invited to. Which is why every girl should own a top-quality pair of statement heals.

Ideally, pick a neutral, tan or black colour, as they will match with everything from your trusty LBD or a skirt and tank to designer jeans or a pant suit. They’ll never let you down.


 3. Jewellery

One of the best ways to add effortless elegance to your look is by wearing some eye-catching jewellery, such as a bracelet, necklace, earrings or rings.

This rule applies to anything you wear, not just formal outfits for special events. That said, it is worth tailoring what jewellery you wear for the occasion.

Diamonds, pearls, gold and silver, are perfect for black-tie events or important business meetings. However, don’t be afraid to wear bright and bold pieces that showcase your vitality and personality when you are out shopping, on a date or sunbathing at the beach.


4. Top quality handbag

Along with heels, every girl should be able to call on a statement handbag to create a more polished look.

Typically, this handbag should fall somewhere between an evening bag and a backpack in size and be versatile enough to take to the shops, office or out for lunch. Totes or crossbody bags are great options for most occasions, as they tend to radiate style.

Not all bags are created equally, though, so you should be mindful that you get what you pay for. It’s worth splashing out on a nice Goyard or Lady Dior because they are made with exquisite craftsmanship that stand the test of time.

Again, it is worth picking a neutral colour such as camel, khaki or black, as it will go with any outfit you will wear.


5. Perfume

We often forget about perfume when thinking about accessories, but it is important that every girl has a signature scent they can call upon.

For many of us, it’s the last thing we put on before heading out – the final stage of our preparations that confirms we are ready.

There are plenty of excellent perfume brands out there, including big hitters like Lancome, Cartier and Calvin Klein. So, the best thing is to literally just follow your nose and find one whose smell you like.

Be sure to understand how perfume works on different fabrics and try plenty of samples (that’s half the fun!) at your local shopping mall, before making your choice.


6. Evening clutch

If you are attending a wedding, cocktail party or corporate event at night, an evening clutch can make all the difference to your look.

A good quality clutch from the likes of Lady Dior or Chanel oozes style and sophistication, which will provide you with a dose of elegance befitting of the event. 

As they are not used that often, clutches are a purchase that will last for several years. Therefore, it is worth finding one that will make a real statement every time you take it out with you.

Silver, white and black are safe colour options that will match most outfits you wear. However, a nice bold shade of red or dark green can also make an excellent impact on your overall attire.
