How many times have you heard yourself thinking that you need new clothes? And how many times have you ignored this thought, went through your closet only to end up where you started in the first place? If you have been a victim of this fashionable tragedy, then it’s time to check your accessories.
There’s this belief that if you want to change your look, you have to basically ‘change your wardrobe’. Stopeeet!
Usually, revamping your wardrobe and experimenting can be expensive, but that does not always need to be the case. Just the right swirl of scarf around your neck can take your casual everyday look to that high fashion ‘You can’t speak to me’ one.
What you need is an abundance of fine accessories to change the feel of your look. Picture a lazy morning where you slip into the first pair of jeans you find and a neutral white tee. Now picture that same outfit with an Adire hat or a nice Adire tote bag and some vibrant tassel earrings. Doesn’t look so boring after all, does it now?
When we accessorize, we do that to contribute or complete the look to our outfit. They should really be referred to to as ‘the salt to the pudding’ because the switch up they give to outfits… Apart from the switch up, they further express our identity and personality.
Our Salt in the Pudding can typically be categorized into two types; those that are carried and those that are worn. Traditionally carried accessories include purses and handbags, hand fans, parasols and umbrellas, wallets, canes, and ceremonial swords. Accessories that are worn may include jackets, boots and shoes, cravats, ties, hats, bonnets, belts and suspenders, gloves, muffs, necklaces, bracelets, watches, eyewear, sashes, shawls, scarves, lanyards, socks, pins, piercings, rings, and stockings.
The type of accessory that an individual chooses to wear or carry to complement their outfit can be determined by several factors, including the specific context of where the individual is going. But imagine showing up with your groomsmen in an Adire bow-tie. Choken’t it? Haahaha😂
At AdireLounge, we believe in buying better and buying less. The essentials are a few key garments that can make a small wardrobe go much further. Our classic Adire pieces can give you the ability to style dresses and pants, tops and jackets, in versatile combinations. They are also beautiful on their own.
If you get easily bored with your clothes and you are always looking for new trends and different ways to switch up your wardrobe, try the Adire way and you’ll keep wanting more.
