Hi, I'm Seane Marie, and I'm a fashion stylist. It is my rule of thought that accessories can make or break any outfit. while not every look requires a ton of accessorizing, and I don't recommend that you wear all of these accessories together, I've chosen five key pieces today that I think every woman should own. Of course, narrowing down these accessories to just five is tricky. but these are items that you'll wear again and again. First a stack full of bangles is a must. As seen here, Emma is wearing gold and black complimentary bangles, which are a perfect accent for nearly everything. Worn today with a great knit dress by 3 Dots, these bangle will work for looks ranging from a cocktail dress to a shirt and denim. Second, a few layering necklaces that can be worn separately, for a simple look, or together for a more dramatic effect, are great for every woman. One of my favorite things about Liz James pieces are that they are so easily layered, like you see here. All three work perfectly together, but are equally beautiful alone. Third, a great handbag that can translate from day to night is ideal. My favorite thing about this vintage black clutch is that the ladylike structure and size works for a daytime look, but can just as easily compliment your evening attire. Fourth, a statement ring. As a stylist I hardly go a day without wearing some sort of ring on my hand. And this cocktail ring I'm wearing now, by Christie L offers a great punch of style without being fussy or taking too much thought. And finally, no ensemble is eve complete without an awesome pair of shoes. Personally, my Go Too shoes are always comfortable and stylish. Right now, I'm obsessed with the flat form wedges. And this nude pair seen here has become my staple. However, there have been times when a chic pair of ballerina flats or a polished riding boot have been my of the moment must have shoe. The key is to find a comfortable pair that seem to go with nearly everything. A polished chic pair in neutral color like black or nude, can never steer you wrong.
