ACCESSORIES IN FASHION: OWN AN OUTFIT WITH THESE ACCESSORIES
Last week on our fashion edition, we updated some tips on how to own an outfit with certain accessories and this week is the continuation of the previous edition.
Hats – A hat is a head covering which is worn for various reasons, including protection against weather conditions, ceremonial reasons such as university graduation, religious reasons, safety, or as a fashion accessory.
Hair accessories – Hair accessories are functional or ornamental objects wrapped, tied, twisted, inserted, or otherwise attached to the hair. These include hairbands, hair bows, tic tac clips, bobby pins, hair barrettes, scrunchies.
Helmets – These are gear you wear on your head to protect your brain from injury in case of accidents, especially when riding a bike. Ceremonial or symbolic helmets aside, helmets are worn by almost all bikers, cyclists; it can be counted as an accessory and you get to choose the color and shape of it to complement your attire or your style.
Handkerchiefs and pocket squares – A pocket square is a handkerchief kept inside a jacket breast pocket, partially visible to the outside. As there are many ways to decorate handkerchiefs to personalize them, there are many ways to fold and keep the pocket square that changes its looks and make it a unique accessory
Luggage – Luggage refers to suitcases and trunks and cases used to carry ones belonging when traveling. Luggage can be coordinated and customized to suit one’s personality and preference and can enhance your style. Luggage sets come in a variety of sizes and they can be as good an accessory as any other.
Necklaces and Pendants – Necklaces are accessories worn around the neck. Necklaces can be short or long; they can be paired with pendants and lockets. Necklaces could be a simple chain with a lone pendant or studded fully with pearls and beads; minimalist or statement; made of plastic or metal. They are one of the most important accessories that can enhance the face and body of men and women.
Neckties – Neckwear refers to clothing worn around the neck such as Neck ties, Cravats & detachable collars.
Perfumes – A fragrant scent that is applied/sprayed on our body – Perfumes are supposed to be the finishing accessory – the thing that compliments everything else as a final touch. Eau de toilette, cologne, body spray are all alternative names given to the perfumes that we use to mask our body odor or make ourselves more attractive scent wise.
Phones & peripherals – You may not yet think of your constant companion as an accessory – but it sure is, in my opinion. Buying the latest phone for its looks rather than its features is a thing that we see everywhere. Phones are being launched on the same venue as Chanel’s runway show in Paris. Most of us brag about the latest phone we have and flaunt them with the most enticing covers. Mobile accessories are an industry in themselves.
Purses (Wallets) – A purse is a small pouch for carrying small items and is carried by hand. A wallet is a flat purse with separate slots for keeping money and a number of cards. Simple leather wallets are considered to be a very stylish accessory by both men and women.
