ac·ces·so·rize | verb
to provide or complement (a garment) with a fashion accessory.
We all know that accessories can make or break an outfit. Whether it is a necklace, ring, purse, hair wrap, or whatever, it’s super important. It doesn’t matter if your style is over the top but well done like Rihanna and Beyonce, or minimalist and clean cut. There is always something for you.
I personally prefer to be savvy with my accessory purchases because trends come and go everyday, and I don’t want to regret my decisions later. My favorite places to find hot, affordable items are: H&M – New York & Company – Belk – Charlotte Russe – and stores like TJ Maxx & Burlington Coat Factory.
Tips to find deals, deals, deals:
When I’m looking for more minimal accessories the first place I will go to is H&M. If that doesn’t work out then I’ll go to NY&Company, depending on what accessory sale they are having. Both stores have their items separated by metals which makes it easier to find what you’re looking for.
For the more colorful and fast fashion pieces then I usually luck up on Charlotte Russe’s – 2 for $10 jewelry. The two for ten is great for pulling a full look together because you can buy a set of rings and a necklace, or a set of earrings and a pack of bracelets. You can get a real bang for your buck!
Don’t shy away from getting items with small imperfections. Small imperfections can lead to minor mark downs in the final cost. So you have the item you want and a few more dollars in your pocket.
Always, and I mean always, check the clearance and sale section. Many of the items pictured above were purchased for under $10 dollars.
