Top Five Accessories No Woman Should Be Without

We have certainly taken on a challenging topic here. After all, the word accessory is so broad. Anything can be included, shoes, jewelry, hair clips, purses, even underwear.

If you had to give away all your accessories and keep just a few, which would they be? It’s hard to narrow it down but we have managed to do just that.

Read on to find out the accessories you just can’t be without.

Cute Sandals

Every woman needs a pair of sandals to get her through a hot summer. If you had to pick just one pair, it should be one that is elegant enough to wear with formal outfits but is versatile enough to be casual as well.

The heel should be low enough to walk on but provide a little bit of a lift to elongate the legs. A neutral color is best.

We went with these New Ladies Chunky Holiday Shoes because they have a casual style that is dressed up by the ribbon. The ‘tie round the ankle’ effect adds shape to the legs. Available in black, brown and salmon pink, you can choose one that best suits your wardrobe.

Low Heel Ankle Boots

And if you need a pair of shoes for the summer, you’re going to need a pair for the winter too. Our pick would be a pair of low heel ankle boots. Unlike knee highs, they will never interfere with the line of your outfit. They add a sophisticated look to clothing and the low heel means they give you an extra lift without being uncomfortable.

The Women’s Leopard Print Snow Boots were our first choice. The style is perfect and the leopard print has tones of brown and black ensuring they will go with just about anything. They are also available in solid black.

Large Tote Bag

I don’t know about you, but I just can’t live without my purse. It’s great for carrying around your wallet, phone, lipstick and more. No wonder they make bags for guys too!

 If you have to add just one purse to your accessories, go for one that’s larger in size. That way, you are sure to be able to fit all your belongings. You should also choose a color that will match most of the outfits in your wardrobe.

If you need a larger bag, this Leather Messenger Tote Bag is perfect. The bag and handle are different colors making for a color block effect. It also comes with small pouch with an attractive fringe that is great for holding your phone or wallet. It comes in a variety of colors including gray, black, blue and pink. 

Statement Necklace

There are so many jewelry pieces to choose from, but if I had to narrow my options to just one, it would be a necklace. I don’t know about you, but when I’m wearing a shirt with an open neck or one that is a solid color with not a lot of detail, I just feel naked without a necklace.

Necklaces can be long, short, chunky or elegant, but I would go with one that is long and makes a statement. Longer necklaces detract from bare necklines and they make a splash against plain backgrounds.

For this category, our pick was the Sweater Chain Long Versatile Women’s Pendant. It’s big enough to dress up a plain look without being overpowering. Its neutral colors mean it will match just about anything you’re wearing. Its ethnic look is trendy and timeless at the same time. 


Sunglasses are another accessory you just can’t be without. They are great for protecting the eyes from harmful rays and they cut down on squinting which means less wrinkles.

With so many different glasses available, it’s difficult to recommend a pair that’s right for anyone, but if a cat’s eye looks good on you, I’d say go for it. Cat’s eye glasses are trending right now and they have an uplifting appearance that can take the years off.

When it comes to color, go with a neutral like a tortoiseshell or a gold or silver metal.

Our sunglass choice goes to Lexi Sunglasses. They have a basic cat eye shape but the bar over the top gives them a square appearance which makes them perfect for a wide variety of face shapes. The silver metal and black will go with a different colors and complexions. 

Accessories are so much fun and they can also be quite useful. The selection of accessories in this article are both fashionable and functional. Which can you not be without?
