For a more uptown look, I draped a scarf around my neck and paired it with dressier heels and a fantastic handbag!
To achieve a more downtown urban vibe, I added a bold medallion necklace, a cropped moto style white jacket, and reptile embossed booties. I always use a jacket as an "accessory" to set the tone for looks.
I hope these examples help you to see how you can change your basic looks by wearing different accessories. A follower once commented to me that she could never put together a look when she shopped at a particular store that I often shop in. I never think of putting together a certain look when I am shopping. Instead, I think only of adding elements that appeal to me, and that can be worn in different ways with what I already have to build appropriate looks for any event.
