Wardrobes may need a re-thinking at the start of each season, but they also long for the occasional refresher in between. The quickest shortcut is an accessory that allows you to play with trends and represent your personality: witness how skinny jeans can look, by turns, cutting-edge with over-the-knee boots, girly with bow-trimmed heels, or casual-chic with slouchy booties. And the little extras also have the power to play a piece against type: that NSFW miniskirt gets the green light when paired with opaque tights, and a solid dress is transformed by a patterned belt.
Shop Your Style (just stocked with new pieces) is an effortless place to start. If your sensibility skews bohemian, try adding an on-trend beaded headband or a chain-fringe scarf (pictured) by Deepa Gurnani. Girly girls would fall for delicate, blush pink sandals by Giuseppe Zanotti–perfect now for NYE and in the spring with swingy dresses–and a bold watch or supple satchel are ideal for a classic personality with an eye for investments. As for me? Though I envy those who can wear studded four-inch heels on a daily basis, embellished flats by Pour La Victoire (pictured) are more my speed and allow me to work a little edge into my everyday look.
