Fashion Accessory Pieces
This year is set to be another big year for fashion. Year on year trends come, go, and then come right back again. But what are the fashion accessory pieces you can’t live without this year? Take a look at the pieces you can’t live without this year, for both men and women:
Fashion Accessory Pieces For Women
If you’re looking to be a fashion forward lady this year, the following fashion accessory pieces should be in your wardrobe:
Put the Finishing Touch on Your Outfit with a Scarf
A scarf tends to complete an outfit. If you ever look at an outfit and think there’s something missing, chances are, it’s a scarf. If you don’t have one, you’re missing out! It’s rare you’ll spot any self proclaimed fashionista without a scarf, whether it’s winter or summertime. Many celebrities swear by the scarf when it comes to completing an outfit, including fashion forward ladies like Jessica Alba and Vanessa Hudgens.
Oversized scarves are absolutely perfect for winter, as they can further protect from the cold while adding an element of chic to your outfit. You’ll be lovely and snug while you look perfectly styled. You can wrap them around your neck a few times for plenty of warmth, or simply drape them over your shoulders for a more relaxed vibe.
Thinner silk scarves are perfect for warmer weather without overheating, and you can still enjoy the interest that a scarf brings to your look. Patterned scarves are all the rage, with anything from polka dot to paisley looking great this year. If you’re afraid of introducing a little pattern, the easiest way to begin is by adding a pretty patterned scarf. You’ll be so glad you did!
It’s a good idea to have a couple of different scarves in your wardrobe for different climates. A warm and snuggly scarf is great for the colder weather, while you can throw your finer scarf on at other times of the year. Make sure you choose something you won’t get bored of so you can wear it again and again!
Give Your Outfit a Timeless Look With a Neckerchief
A silk neckerchief adds a certain chic element to an outfit. You can really channel a modern 70s vibe with a neckerchief in your outfit. All you have to do is fold the neckerchief until it reaches the thickness you like, and you can then tie it around your neck. There are a handful of ways that look great depending on the look you’re going for. No doubt you’ll start a trend whether you wear your neckerchief to the office or for lunch with your girlfriends.

Wear a Cape With Almost Anything For Flexible Elegance
The cape is a very versatile item, that you can wear with just about anything. Think of it as like a poncho, except far more elegant and versatile. They often have buttons too, rather than going straight over your head - no need to worry about messing up your perfectly coiffed ‘do. Many people like to wear their cape as their coat, with their jeans, and the rest of their outfit, such as a hat and gloves. However, you can also layer your cape to create a super trendy look that’s perfect for colder climates, so don’t be afraid to throw it over your favorite winter piece, and even another light jacket.
You can get your cape in a neutral color to go with most items, but where’s the fun in that? Buying a cape in a bright color, or even a pattern such as leopard print could really jazz up your wardrobe. You should never be afraid to introduce a pattern or two into your wardrobe, especially this year! You should aim to express yourself with your wardrobe. The cape is so versatile, as it can be worn with skirts, jeans, trousers, to work, or for play. Depending on what you layer your cape with, you could wear it during winter, or even just to protect you from a mild chill over a thin shirt. You have so many options with a high quality cape in your wardrobe!
Quality Luxury Handbags Support Your Stuff... and Your Style!
Women need a quality handbag to hold all of their things. We don’t usually tend to travel light, do we? Whether we’re going shopping or for brunch with a friend, a high quality bag is going to be the perfect accompaniment for our wallet, keys, makeup, mobile phone, and anything else we might need to carry with us that day. A luxury style handbag doesn’t need to cost thousands, or have a huge brand name to be quality. There are a number of different styles out there, from shiny black croc to classy neutral colors that go with just about anything you can imagine. Think of it as an investment. You’ll know your things are as safe as can be while you’re out, and you’ll look super stylish. There are styles with long and short straps, as well as oversized versions. Choose one that most fits your style and lifestyle before you make your investment.
Own The Night(s) With Bold Clutch Bags
A bold clutch bag is the perfect fashion accessory for a night out. Whether you’re wearing a little black dress or something more daring, a bold clutch bag can complement your outfit, or even contrast it. Contrasting your outfit with a clutch bag is an uber-fashionable way to rock a night out. For instance, if you’re wearing a pink dress, a bright red bag will stand out. You can even use a color wheel to help you if you’re serious about getting the contrast right!
Metallic clutch bags add an element of luxury while making a statement. However, you can choose a bright color like red or green, if you prefer. Either way, your outfit is going to stand out and you’ll look awesome!
Fashion Accessory Pieces for Men
Men should not be a stranger to the fashion accessory. The right accessories can make or break any outfit, no matter your sex. Yet, so many males still fail to accessorize properly! Here are the fashion accessory pieces men should be investing in this year:
Add Functionality and Sophistication with Leather Man Bags
A leather man bag can add the ultimate air of sophistication to any look. Whether you’re on your way to work with a functional leather briefcase, or going for lunch with a more relaxed looking design, your outfit isn’t complete without the fashion accessory of a leather man-bag. Just because women are known for carrying (and sometimes hoarding) bags, doesn’t mean men should be without them. This is a way more practical way to take the essentials with you than putting them in your pockets (there are so many risks) or even putting them in your partner’s handbag. With a trendy leather man bag on your arm, you’re going to look a cut above the rest and won’t have a reason to worry about your things. Choosing the right bag is important for your lifestyle, but you can usually find incredible designs that work whether you’re on the way to a meeting or a coffee.
Keep Your Important Things Safe and Your Style Upper-Echelon with Luxury Leather Wallets
A luxury leather wallet is going to last far longer than a cheap, faux leather thing. Cheap wallets don’t hold together well, and you’ll find yourself replacing your wallet over and over until you finally decide to invest in something more durable. Besides, you’re going to need something to go with your new leather bag, so it’s the perfect excuse to treat yourself to a new wallet.
Although leather wallets do tend to mark and age over time, this just gives them more character. You can rest safely in the knowledge that your ID, cards, money, and other important things are safe with a luxury leather wallet.
Present Some Pizzazz With a Bow Tie
The bow tie is a little out there and quirky, but that’s all the more reason to get one! They are far more unusual than a tie, and will add a touch of pizzazz to a formal or casual outfit. You can even go one step further, and get one with an unusual pattern to really show off your personality. You can stand out from the crowd at all of your special events this year with the right bow tie in your arsenal. Whether you have a wedding, a bar mitzvah, or you’re speaking publicly, a bow tie is going to add a playful touch to your formal outfit.
Say Something Without Actually Saying Anything With Statement Cufflinks
What’s a gorgeous suit without a fabulous pair of statement cufflinks? Forget your regular old boring cufflinks. Buy something with a little something special. How about crystal cufflinks, or cufflinks decorated with expensive looking diamantes? There’s something to suit every style. This allows you to add a personal look to your suit without going OTT and standing out more than you’d like.
