This spring, I find myself reaching more and more for dresses. For work or play, they make getting dressed quick and easy.
|Dress: The Limited (old)|
I’ve had this polka dot dress for a couple years now, and I still enjoy wearing it. The problem is that like many dresses, this one isn’t super versatile.
That said, I like to change the styling up a little bit every time I wear it. I’ve worn this dress with my red heels several times, but for today’s look, I decided to add a pop art print tote and my handcuff bangles.

The dress and heels have such a retro feel when paired together but the accessories help keep the outfit more modern.

I enjoy wearing a variety of styles depending on my mood, but I always love my look best when there’s something a little quirky or edgy about it. In this case, the handcuff bangles are quietly subversive, while the tote adds an artsy feel that I adore.

Fun accessories that feel special help make your outfits uniquely you. When you shop at mainstream retailers, which most of us do, it can be hard to feel or be “different.” Mixing accessories in original and unexpected ways or even having signature accessory pieces really helps in creating a truly personal style.
How do you use accessories? Do you have any “signature” accessories?
