Fashion accessories are usually defined as those items that are added to or constitute an accessory of some sort. Usually, the word “fashions” is used when used in conjunction with accessories. This article presents some common ones. A fashionable accessory is usually a small thing, used to partially complete an entire outfit, often chosen specifically to complement the overall style of the wearer, and used in place of a more substantial piece that would normally be worn as part of the ensemble. It is not necessary that the accessory is actually used in the course of a particular fashion; for example, earrings may be worn with a particular style of dress in order to create a classy effect.
Earrings, necklaces, bracelets, hair pins, and broaches are examples of the more common types of accessories. Most commonly, however, they are used to either complement or contrast with the dress being worn, and their function is usually either to accentuate certain areas of the dress, or to provide a functional use, such as holding the dress in place during a high-heeled shoeing. Some women who are wearing very formal attire choose to wear a single strand of pearls, which can be displayed openly, on their dress. Others choose to incorporate a few different pieces to achieve the same effect. For example, a woman wearing a one-strand necklace with her strapless gown might wear earrings that match or contrast with her necklace, and similarly for other pieces of jewelry, such as broaches, chokers, or rings.
Anklet is a French term meaning a string of anklets. These are often worn around the ankles as a trendy fashion accessory, although their origin is somewhat unclear. Commonly found in fashion magazines and fashion shows, many of these are made of gold or silver metal and have a small, decorative button on the inside edge.
Earrings are also popular fashion statements. Depending on how they are worn, they can either compliment a particular outfit or completely contrast it. The size and shape of a woman’s earring is also important. They should match perfectly with the length of the outfit and the color and style of the shoes that they are wearing. Different types of earrings are used for different occasions, such as dangling earrings that dangle around the back of the neck, or hoops which are worn around the ears. A popular type of accessory for proms and weddings is the “chain” which links together several small rings so they can be interwoven into a larger piece.
The final accessory we are going to discuss are “flash” accessories. Flash is not technically an accessory, but a clothing statement. Commonly seen on black prom dresses and on hip hop and urban styles, flash is intended to showcase a signature style or look. Flash can be worn in the summertime to highlight an ultra-cool tank top, or worn underneath a cute t-shirt to create a bit of texture and interest. Flash is definitely one of the most fun fashion accessories to try and should certainly be experimented with to create something new and exciting.
