Accessories can transition the overall appearance and change the look up completely. Adding staple accessory pieces to your wardrobe can extend your wearing of apparel - it's a cheap way to add outfits to your closet.

A bold statement necklace can create a cocktail dress out of a little summer dress in an instant. You have got to scout out the appropriate pieces that can create the look you're going for.

When wearing a cocktail dress or any strapless dress that you opt to wear a statement necklace with, skip out on earrings and go for studs. The overall effect will draw attention (that you want all eyes on) to the accessory of choice - it also looks much classier not to overdo jewelry.

We, of course, love pieces that are big here in Texas and it's definitely "the bigger, the better" type of mentality. Definitely choose just one staple piece or the other - either earrings or necklace but never the both of them together.

Unique earrings always add an extra element to the great dresses you have in the closet. Change up your accessories often to add a new look to an old dress or outfit.

It is amazing what new accessories can do for old outfits. Keep apparel and add new accessories. It not only creates an entirely new look, it is a cheaper way of shopping.
