The right accessories can transform your outfit from every day into something special.  The secret is to choose them carefully to match your style and shape.  Here are our top 5 tips to help you chose.

1.    Handbags
Bags aren't just for storing your purse, scarves, make up and the many other things you just have to carry around! A beautiful bag can make a statement, and add detail to a plain outfit. Keep simple bags for patterned outfits, and when you wear more simple clothes, make your statement with an ornate bag.

2.    Jewellery
The right jewellery really can draw attention to your best features. To show off your neck and shoulders a statement necklace looks great. Alternately highlight to a defined waist with a longer pendant or necklace that hangs below your bust.  Draw attention to arms and wrists with pretty bracelets and bangles.

3.    Belts
Again belts can be a great way to add colour.  They can also add definition and transform a straight tunic or dress into a whole new look. If you have a natural waist, wear it around your waist, straighter figures look great with belts slung around their hips.

4. Scarves
Pretty scarves are versatile at any time of the year, and in winter they add an extra layer. For parties larger scarves can be draped across the shoulders in a wrap style for added glamour.

5.    Shoes
We all love heels but the highest are best kept for special occasions. If you are going to be doing lots of walking wedges are much more comfortable.  Knee high boots are great this time of year, over jeans or with a skirt. Flat boots are really popular this year, and so comfy as well as stylish.

The right accessories can make an outfit, so why not experiment and see what works for you!
