Three Keys to Choosing the Perfect Accessory for an outfit

Posted on 11 January 2018

Looking to spruce up your wardrobe a bit in the new year? Perhaps all you need is to add a few carefully selected new accessories. Rather than starting from scratch with clothing choices, embellish what you have already. At Handbag Tailor we scour the globe to bring unique fashion accessories directly to your doorstep. We look for one-of-a-kind, high quality accessories that will last the test of time both in use and style. We have something for the professional woman at work, after hours, on the weekends and everywhere in between. 

To assist you in sprucing up your wardrobe with some great new accessories, we have put together a few tips on choosing those perfect pieces.

1. Define your style. Are you bold and and adventurous, or more quiet and conservative?

 Is this you? It is every bit as bold as it is adventurous. This Charles Albert Alchemia Lapis Cuff is a unique piece that makes a statement no matter what you're wearing.


 Or is this? 


Want to look put together without being too over the top? Sophistication with that business suit? Need just a pinch of fun for Saturday night? A petite portion of Diamonds and gold are on the menu with the Adina Reyter super tiny pave bar necklace.

 2. Define your Occasion. Are you dressing for the office, an interview, a dinner date, an outdoor event or a swanky event at an upscale art gallery?

Office? This bag says business, but with just enough edge to help you stand out as anything but ordinary. Check out our other Hammitt LA bags for work.

P.S. This bag has a hidden zippered compartment on the bottom. A great place to stash your gym shoes or flats for riding the subway or bus on your way to the office, or a workout afterward. 


Evening Out? In rich Italian Leather and pony hair with its gold emblem and chain, this Dareen Hakim handbag will have the compliments pouring in. A great choice for a dinner out, or that swanky gathering. The perfect compliment to a little black dress.

3. Define your outfit.

Monochromatic (ex. all black)? URGENT...add color now! If you're looking for a pop of color, this bag is definitely a vibrant one. Lancaster Paris is known for their bags that are not only beautiful but made to last with high quality materials. You won't believe how soft this bag is!

Workday pop of color? We have just the thing. The open weave Donni Charm Web scarf. It comes in a variety of colors, but we love the coral for a work-week statement piece.

A mix of patterns? Go for something more classic, in a classic black or neutral to keep the fun up, but in a subtle way. We love these neutrals by designer Kyla Joy.
