Glamorous Accessories For All Occasions
Retailers are amazing at giving us realistic images of ways to rock fabulous accessory trends year round. There is always a multitude of ways to convert traditional jewelry pieces (think wrapping long necklaces around waists, plain handbags, and bare wrists) to up the “glam-factor”. With more ways than ever to sell tired pieces online, it’s a seamless process to essentially “trade up” accessories you’re just plain bored with. Glamorous accessories for all occasions means having a few statement pieces to choose from to mix and match with your signature ones. If you wear the same watch every day, for example, try flipping it backwards on your wrist and pairing it with a new cuff-style bracelet. Voila! A look that screams “glam” louder than your new sunglasses ever could.
Coordinating Accessories: Personal Style

To come up with 10 ways of rocking glam-accessories year round, think about how you’re most comfortable. What hue do you gravitate toward (both in clothing, and metal tone). What’s the climate like where you live? Finally, what’s your activity level?

Scarves and hats tend to take a backseat to other favorites like sunglasses and statement jewelry. These versatile pieces are some of the best for all-occasion wear because they can be used as props (selfie!) and shared around for laughs and great times and inspiration.
Taking Accessories From Day To Evening
You’ll find that most accessories transition from day wear into the evening rather seamlessly. Pieces like men’s Rolex watches are timeless and can be concealed when appropriate beneath a sleeve without forfeiting the feeling of luxury to the wearer. Expensive accessories after all, are some of the most brilliantly camouflaged. Night fashion is usually bolder and requires more heft or presence, but don’t confuse the daintiness of fine jewelry, as these gorgeous pieces project maximum allure and intrigue, which makes them all the more glamorous. Daywear accessories is all about your go-to signature pieces. A wedding ring, a sentimental locket, or an heirloom piece can each be elevated for evening attire by adding complimentary ring guards, layers, and similar-toned metal accessories for maximum impact.

Caring For Your Accessories
Costume accessories need to be removed when washing hands or showering. The coatings on them are easy to tarnish and details are often glued on or tied together. Caring for all types of accessories means giving them a designated place to rest in between wear, and usually wiping them free of oils, dirt, and debris with a simple soft cloth. Expensive accessories need to have scheduled maintenance at a reputable jeweler to maintain warranty and trade-in or trade-up values.
