This is our second collab with onesavvymother who came up with a few unusual items like a cork bag to bring interest to an outfit from the Basic wardrobe.
When you wear only a few key pieces all the time as is the case with capsule wardrobes, it is essential that your accessories be versatile & eye catching.
Here are 3 ways to jazz up a dressy outfit.
- Your bag is more than just a sack to carry your personal items. Make it a bright and bold statement as well as utilitarian. Do you find yourself without a free hand at cocktail parties? Choose a backpack that will keep the people looking at you even when your back is turned. Shown here is a cork & leather backpack in a yellow finish made by Pelcor.
- I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. The scarf is the single most important accessory that everyone should own. Make it organic cotton and you’ve got something easy to wash too. (shown is organic cotton scarf by Letol France) to add color around your face or blend your outfit colors together, add an accessory that has multiple uses, an added layer of warmth or cover up when the wind blows. Wear it as a belt too.
- When you don’t want to layer on too much, choosing a cuff for your wrist is a guaranteed way to add shine to a basic outfit. Choosing gold or silver and you’ll up the dressiness quotient. Shown here Brass cuff polished bright by B/C Designs.
