How to Make a Favorite Outfit New Again


If you're like me, you have a favorite outfit you wear every week. It's the "comfortable" thing to wear and I feel pretty in that outfit. My go to outfit in this cooler weather is a pair of dark wash jeans, black cardigan, and layering a black or white tank under a bright colored tank. It becomes a uniform for my wardrobe. But how do we get that "new outfit" feeling? Simple, accessories! Accessories range from rings to broaches to shoes, so here are some ways to give that favorite outfit a pop of color or the "new outfit" feel.

DiamondsDiamonds are classic in any form, color, and price point. Not only are they a marvelous accessory, they are a solid investment. The current trend for diamonds is setting diamonds in sterling silver because the cost of gold is expensive. Finding any diamond piece in 14 karat gold for $200 is a steal.
To start a great diamond collection, start with a piece you can wear everyday, like a low profile diamond band. A piece like this can be worn with jeans, to the office and with a great dress for a night out. Try this ring from, http://www.zales.com/ is a great way to start. This ring is an enhanced blue and white diamond pavé band in 10K white gold is about 1/4 carat in weight and retails for currently $249.99 item number 18501569.



Shoes
Shoes are the crowning glory of any outfit. Take any plain outfit and add texture and color to your ensemble. Wearing a certain color, like blue , try a shoe in a complementary color such as orange with detailing. Try these shoes by Jessica Simpson in Burnt Sienna Maya style 7857950 for $74.99 at http://www.zappos.com/. They have a feminine look with a bow and stud detailing for an edgy flair.



Bracelets

Think bracelets and bangles to add to your outfit. It's a simple and easy way to grow a great accessories collection. You can add contrast with colors, different finishes, sizes, and texture. Braclets and bangles are visual interest pieces and great sound effects. For me it's the one of the easiest pieces to wear on the run. Try this stunning Italian inspired link bracelet made from bronze & turquoise for $77.42 on http://www.shopnbc.com/ item number J404202. This piece a great statement piece with a business suit.
