Why A Signature Accessory is Important

Giorgio Armani knew what he was talking about when he said «Accessories are important and becoming more and more important every day». Giorgio Armani knows it and so do we, so why do accessories matter so much? Finding your own unique style has always been the backbone of fashion — after all, your wardrobe is an extension of you. Finding a signature accessory finishes that look and creates an impression that no other can replicate. It's yours, your own it sister! 


Fashion icons have been doing this for years, think about it. When you think Amy Winehouse, her trademark beehive and eye make up are first to mind. Angelina Jolie is rarely seen without a row of pearls around her neck. Jackie O had her iconic sunglasses and pillbox hat and fashion icons like Anna Wintour and Iris Apfel just as well know for their eyewear as their fashion advice — if not more so!

Iris Apfel has always known the importance of accessories:
“My mother knew if you bought a couple of really good architectural outfits and put your money into accessories, you could create a million different looks; she taught that to me, which I think was invaluable.”


Do not be fooled, accessories and clothing have equal significance in an outfit, they working together in partnership to create an ensemble that expresses your style and who you are. They may be small and quite often inexpensive but their impact is great. You could quite easily bring an outfit from one occassion to another by focusing on the accessories you match it with. Go from office outfit to night out ensemble with a change in stud earrings to colorful tassels. Add a chic belt to draw in your blazer, making it figure hugging and stylish. Pop on some toe rings to open toed heels or wear a choker to really have a dramatic impact on the look. 


When you go shopping for your accessories don't think of each as an individual addition to your wardrobe. On their own, a handbag, headscarf may not look like it will make much of an impact. However, when you combine them with the clothing in your wardrobe, accessories help create a unique look. Once you have worked out the accessory that most suits you then make it your own. A headscarf could be your thing, Either full head worn like a bandana, added when tieing your hair back or worn like a band knotted at the top. Buy it in different colors and patterns and really make it your go-to signature accessory.
