Vintage Shopping Takes Over The Hamptons

The best Vintage Shopping has come to the Hamptons. This year’s market started originally in Palm Springs California, and this summer they decided to bring their love for all things vintage and hand-created to Southampton.  Each market day is filled with music, food trucks, and the most interesting vendors traveling from across the globe.

Types of Accessories

There are several different categories of accessories, some more worn than others. For example, shoes may be the accessory that almost everyone wears every day. There are many types of shoes in varying styles and colors. You should choose shoes that add to your wardrobe, fit properly, and fit into your lifestyle. 

Finding the right jewelry for your outfit may depend on the type of outfit and the occasion. There are many places to find jewelry, like a jewelry store. You can either have fine or fashionable jewelry, depending on your needs and budget. John Hardy earrings by master artisans are always your best bet if you’re looking for a statement piece. You’re sure that what you are wearing is uniquely made and crafted by skilled hands. But if you’re already wearing an outfit with a lot of details, the rule of thumb is to tone down on accessories. A simple silver or pearl earring will do the trick. Let people appreciate your look, and they won’t be able to do that if there are so many things going on. Earrings, necklaces, and rings can all bring a little sparkle to your outfit. You can choose what sort of jewelry you like. You can have dainty pieces, statement pieces, or something in between. Earrings, like hoops or statement pieces, can make a casual outfit shine. There are many to choose from, like studs, dangles, ear climbers, and the list goes on. Watches are another accessory that can be both functional and attractive. Watches come in various designs, from smartwatches to classic, luxury watches. 

Belts, handbags, and hair accessories are all other things that can elevate your outfit. An elegant hair scarf or headband can make your clothing classier. A leather handbag can also show understated elegance. Belts come in a wide variety of colors and styles to go with your clothes. These accessories can be fun or whimsical as well. It all depends on your clothing style and what you want out of your wardrobe. Where you live might also dictate what sort of accessories you wear. In a cold climate, a wool scarf may be appropriate. These scarves can be as fun or neutral as you want them to be. 

How to Use Accessories With an Outfit

Accessories are a finishing touch to your outfit. They can add a pop of fun, color, or luxury to what you are wearing. Much like a signature fragrance, a signature accessory can be something you are known for wearing, like a hair scarf, jewelry piece, or handbag.

Use accessories to make your office outfit into a night-out outfit. For example, a blouse and trousers may be what you wear during the day. For the evening you can put on a sequined jacket, hoop earrings and a pair of heels. You now have an outfit appropriate for dinner or dancing. You can even bring a small evening bag with you that you can switch out later.

Accessories can also take a plain, neutral outfit to new heights and make a casual outfit classier. If you are wearing jeans and a t-shirt, try putting a blazer, earrings, and heels on to make it dressier. If you are wearing all black, adding a fun belt or sunglasses can make the outfit more interesting. You could even try having a small bag of accessories in your car or desk in case you need them in a pinch.

What you wear can set your mood for the day and communicate to others what kind of style you have. Accessories are fun, small ways to add a pop of style to an outfit and make it your own. A simple wardrobe can instantly look classier or more fun, and elegant clothing can look even more so with these small pieces. Whatever your style is, find what accessories you like and add them to your wardrobe to give you more versatility and style.
