#1 Invest in basic accessories 

Accessories are not limited to just jewelry. While this is a popular accessory, the list also includes bags, shoes, hair items, watches, and much more. Consider which items you feel comfortable in, or would like to experiment with, and invest in some basics. This will give you several opportunities to start dressing your outfits up or down. There is no right or wrong when choosing basic accessories. You should opt for the ones that you like, and that are practical, for example, if you always carry a bag around to put your items in then a neutral color bag is going to be a staple item you should invest in.

#2 Choose the right style to match your desired look 

You can take any outfit and dress it up or down with accessories, as long as you choose the right ones. You can start by choosing your outfit, and then adding accessories, or you can start with the accessories if there is something you are desperate to wear. If you are starting with your outfit, you should first consider what the intention of the accessories is going to be. Is the outfit too boring for you? Or does the outfit need toning down a little? It can be helpful to consider what you are dressing for when making your decision. You are likely going to want to dress an outfit down if you are going to the office for work and dress it up if you are heading out for a night on the town. You can dress an outfit up by choosing bold and layered jewelry, strappy sandals or kitten heels, and a small glamorous clutch bag. Alternatively, if you are looking to dress an outfit down for work, you may choose to wear loafers, elegant jewelry and a briefcase. These are simple additions for the summer months when the weather is particularly hot. 

#3 Choose the right colors 

In some cases, the accessories will be the way you make a statement with your summer outfit. This is a great way to use a variety of styles and colors to make the entire outfit stand out, and showcase your individual style. Colors are also an excellent way to express yourself, customize your outfit, and make it match the summer mood. Some of the most popular trends this summer will include contrasting your colors. This will be one of the basic principles for fashion in 2022, and you will see this all over the place. For example, if you are wearing an orange t-shirt, you may wish to pair it with a blue hat or bag. If you are wearing a yellow summer dress, you may wish to pair this with a pink bracelet and shoes, or a green bag. Vibrant colors are going to bring about a summer theme to your outfit, and bring you a lot of joy.
