Accessories Maketh the Woman:
Feel like you’re ready for a bit of a change but not a complete fashion do-over? It’s easy to make your whole wardrobe feel new again just by updating your accessories. This fall, add accents like kitten heels, the top-handle granny bag or long leather gloves. Give your look a fresh spin with coveted accessories from top designers and brands all at amazing prices from eBay Fashion.
· The kitten heel is a great way to get a little lift and draw attention to a shapely ankle.
o Back in the day, showing your slip was not very ladylike, but today embracing the visible lingerie look makes your look all your own.
o Show off your waistline with a patent skinny belt.
o Choose a pump with a pointy front, like these by Christian Louboutin, to elongate the leg.
· Top handle frame bags were shown by designers on the runway for fall, but haven’t actually been used by anybody under the age of 80 for some time, which makes this an accessory ripe for vintage pickings.
o Top handle bag should be structured like this vintage one, and small to medium sized.
o Mix with sporty pieces like a stripe-y t-shirt and a pair of skinny jeans by J. Crew.
o Keep it basic – stay with neutrals but don’t get too match-y. You want to look like Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn.
· Long leather gloves are the “do-everything” accessory. They’re also a great fix for vintage coats with bracelet lengths sleeves. My personal favorite is to wear them with a chiffon dress to add a hard-edged twist.
o Tuck in the sleeves of your shirt or sweater and wear these gloves by LaCraisa over the top.
o Adding little touches, like a skinny belt over your jacket or a bright- colored sweater from H&M will bring your whole outfit together.
o You don’t want your gloves to dominate your entire look – if they go past your elbows, just slouch them a bit.
