Instant Style Upgrade in 2023!

A women makes an outfit her own with accessories! — Oscar de la Renta

As we head into February and tiring of winter, it is a great time to add a little fun to your wardrobe. The easiest way to do this is with accessories that you can wear now and well into spring.

I believe the best way to elevate an outfit is to use the rule of three. You start with a top and bottom and then add a third piece. Of course, a jacket will work but the real fashion statement is a bold or colorful accessory.

Think of accessories as the finishing touch to your outfit as they create the ultimate exclamation point to your overall look! It is a great way to add interest and let your personality shine through.

Jewelry is one place to start and there are two types of shoppers: one focuses on investment pieces they can wear every day to justify the price per wear. I fall into the second type enjoying fun costume jewelry to compliment my personal style. I love big statement bracelets, necklaces, and earrings.

Here are 5 Accessories that will provide an instant style upgrade in 2023....

Floral Accessories – It’s all about the corsage…think of the classic Chanel look with a floral brooch on your jacket for a chic classic look. Elevate your dress or pants with a floral accent on a belt. Or add a fun bold statement earring with a floral twist and you can step into spring a little early.



Oversized bags – Start with a large tote and not just your typical computer bag, think textures, colors, and ultra-soft leather. Want to add some fun to your outfit, go with an oversized clutch…so so chic!



Silver - You can add a shoe or fun clutch in metallic silver. Of course adding in silver jewelry is the easiest way to jump on this trend. Gold has been so strong for the past several years and now silver is having a moment. What a great way to bring in the chunky statement jewelry trend. Don’t worry about what to do with all your gold jewelry, mixing metals is encouraged!



Colored Stones – Glam up any look with gemstones. Emerald or green is everywhere but any color will work from blues, pinks, to reds. How about a shoe with an embellishment accent, it’s time to sparkle!



Chunky Jewelry - Think big statement pieces like a chunky necklace, bold earring, or a bold oversized cuff. This hands down is the easiest way to complete a simple outfit. Start with jeans, a tee and then add one statement piece and you are out the door looking very stylish!
