Accessorise your look - January 2016

I love accessorising for several reasons.

First and foremost, accessories can instantly transform an ordinary outfit into something interesting. Secondly, accessories allow you to change up your trusted, versatile basics to create numerous different and unique looks, giving you more variety. As a result (and thirdly), you get maximum use of the items you already own, so there is less of a need to buy more clothing, saving you money. Fourthly, you will save time with less effort spent figuring out what to wear and piecing together new ensembles. What’s more, with all the original outfits you’ll be creating and wearing, you will stand out from the rest - you won’t be just another suitably-dressed woman in the crowd. Finally and more importantly, you will look good and in looking good you will feel good and radiate confidence and be happy with yourself hence, appear more attractive.

Accessories are also a great way stay up-to-date and look fashionable without having to spend large amounts of money.

I love these gorgeous pumps from Nine West. The striking black-and-white striped pattern contrasted against blue and beige is so chic, and the glitter on the toe-tip adds glamour. For me, these shoes are the perfect accessory as they can be paired with almost any ensemble and the colours and design allow for all-year-round wear.

For this look, I wanted the shoes to be the main focus so I kept my outfit simple – black pencil skirt and white top. These pumps certainly change up my look making my outfit trendy and more exciting.

Here's a little secret: if you want to look stylish, you don’t need to buy more clothes, you need to buy more accessories!
