A Few Need To Know Tips About Choosing Accessories
When Starting A Wardrobe, Always Go Black
In my honest opinion when it comes to building a wardrobe, I always start with black pieces. Why? It’s extremely versatile and can be opted out with just about any style. Long story short, black can be interchanged a multitude of ways. I think it’s safe to say black is a primary color when it comes to fashion. When you have proper accessories in your arsenal you are setting yourself up for easy transitional outfits and a highly manageable wardrobe. The idea is to have a style arsenal you can pull from at any given time.

Four Black Fashion Accessories Every Fashion Girl Should Have.
A Real Leather Jacket
No matter what region of the world you live, a leather jacket is applicable and essential to your closet, it is a timeless staple piece. A leather jacket can be worn in the spring when the weather is still cool. What’s great is that it can be transitioned to a fall piece. For winter, it can be layered with other pieces to provide warmth for the super cold days. It is not uncommon for you to see a fashionista walking the streets in a leather jacket. Cape it, wear it regular, tie it around the waist. Let’s face it a leather jacket takes any outfit to the next level.
And let’s just be real… it’s a cool look. It fits any style preference as well.
My jacket is more of a loose fitting “moto” jacket. However, real leather jackets come in all shapes and styles. Simply find one that speaks to you and wear the hell out of it.
A Style Tip When Buying a Leather Jacket
Go up a size – yes, a snugger fitting jacket is cute. However, you want your staple jacket to fit larger to accommodate layering options such as sweaters and hoodies. You will thank me later for this notion.
An Everyday Crossbody Bag
A good handbag is essential to style. I can’t tell you how many times I have needed a “grab and go’ handbag.
Any baddie should have a solid crossbody bag to incorporate into her style and closet. here are 3 reasons why.
- They are small yet big enough to carry all things necessary
- Crossbody bags are very stylish and versatile
- They are convenient, meaning you throw it on and go.
Choosing a bag that is high in quality is important especially if you aren’t a shopaholic. Reason being, you will be wearing it A LOT. When I first purchased my crossbody I wore it every.single.day. and it stood the test of time. I’ve had my Gucci Soho disco bag for nearly 2 years and it is still in excellent shape. 1500.00 well spent.
A Great Pair Of Sunglasses
Like earrings, sunglasses add an “up factor” to a look. Having a great pair of sunglasses/shades as a go-to is a must when it comes to styling and building a wardrobe. It the fashion accessory every fashionista owns.
Yes, you can go wild with colors and shapes. However, a simple black pair to start with is enough.
A High Quality Belt
Every baddie should own a belt. However, a black belt is a great one to start with. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve needed a belt for fitting purposes and used my go to black belt as the one.
Not only does a belt serve as a piece to hold your breeches on, it can also be used as a styling accessory. I’m sure you’ve seen the trend were a belt is worn around the waist. This is another piece you’re going to want to invest in, especially if you wear belts a lot. The better the quality, the longer this one will be around.
