Chic Accessories to Elevate Your Look

If you’re a fashion-forward gal, then you’re probably not without a little something extra to spice up your look. You love a good accessory, whether it’s a classic necklace or a statement ring, and you’re always game to play around and experiment.

However, if you’re new to the world of accessorizing and are looking for ways to step up your style, say no more. We rounded up the best pieces from our collection to show you how an essential accessory can change your look entirely. From leather belts to face masks, here’s how to integrate each one into your wardrobe.

A necklace can make any top interesting

Shop the 14K Gold Filled Mercury Necklace, $58.95

Vintage tees, dress shirts, square-neck tops, and even sweaters can be styled with a necklace (or two or three) for a touch of glam, elevating an otherwise basic top. For the style-savvy, chain-link necklaces came back with their latest iteration for 2021—thicker, larger chains with a matching pendant to boot.

Beads and medallions made their mark in the fashion world last year, but it looks like they’re extending their stay for another round of season-appropriate pieces. If you’re still experimenting with layering, try a necklace and earring set for an effortless look.

Use a belt to create a flattering waistline

Shop the Chained Belt - Caramel/Gold Leather, $40.95

Belts are often unappreciated as an accessory because we use them primarily out of necessity. But today, we want to prove ourselves wrong by saying you can jazz up any outfit with this little extra to add a personal flair to your look.

Cinch a shapeless dress or an oversized blazer for a street style-inspired outfit. You can also dress your favorite pair of vintage jeans with an eye-catching belt to give it a modern twist. Lastly, try to break the monotony of your all-white outfit with an animal print belt.

Add earrings to dress up a look

Shop the Gold-Plated Selma Earrings, $35.95

Since we dress from the waist up these days, earrings have been an excellent style-saver for (on-cam) Zoom calls. If you’re attending a work event, go for a more pared-back look with simple hoops or studs. For virtual date nights with your significant other, try a more charming look with tassels or abstract shapes.

From the streets to the runway, earrings have proved their versatility by serving as a stunning statement piece. They just pull any look together.

Complete your look with the right bag

Shop the Blake Vegan Leather Shoulder Bag in Olive Crocodile, $78.95

Smaller bags have risen in popularity again, so we might as well take advantage of this trend and make the most out of any stylish ensemble with a chic purse. From evening clutches to classic shoulder bags, there’s something for every occasion.

Style a neutral outfit with a faux croc-skin bucket bag or a leather handbag with hardware details for an edgier look.

Find the perfect summer sandal

Shop the Pickwick Stretch Wedge Sandal in Black Stretch Mesh, $64.95 

The warmer weather calls for a comfier pair to frolic around in, a.k.a. the ultimate summer sandal. As we move boots to the back of our closets, platforms, flats, and demi-wedges are ready to step out. We love wearing ours with a maxi dress, tunic, or a kaftan. When dressing for a more formal occasion, opt for woven wedge sandals with a bit of height but are still comfortable.
