What girl does not like them? Ruffles, seaming, beads – you name it! The right clothes can make the person feel beautiful, powerful, strong, playful, sexy, feminine – really a whole array of emotions. The best way to put together a gift of clothing is to pair it with matching accessories completing the entire outfit. Matching accessories make the outfit ready for wear, getting rid of the worry that they might not have anything in their closet to match that blouse.

Here are a few collections I’ve put together to inspire you:

Cream sweater paired with gold accents in the necklace ring and matching purse.

Cream and Gold: Pair cream with warm accents of gold and amber. This collection totals only about $123.40 and would look amazing on everybody! The gorgeous knit sweater and purse are both from Express and the necklace and ring are Forever 21. This one’s a stunner! I’m absolutely in love with the pops of red this season! Match a few together and watch how those accessories make you look fabulous! The ruffled blouse is from Express and the rest of the accessories are Esprit.

One word: LOVE! How elegant is this, reds coupled with aqua and animal print! This outfit proves it: it’s all in the details.  The absolutely fabulous red vintage dress is from one of my favorite online retailers , as well as the necklace. The shoes are from a line by Carlos Santana  bracelet is by 5 Angels Accessories. You can get any animal print hair clip, there are so many out there. Check out Etsy for some really beautiful, handmade ones.

Natural tones and soft fabrics can be dressed up with classic shapes, heavier necklaces and imitation pearls (shh… I won’t tell). The beautiful dress you see here is from Express, the scarf is from Esprit, the bag and bracelet are Forever 21.

It is a wonder how I did not buy anything while researching and writing this post… This collection is one of my favorites!!! I think I just might buy it for myself… Yes, I said it! Everything works so beautifully together! The heavy metal accents bring out the lushness of the light airy fabrics. If you look closely you will notice how certain details tend to reappear from item to item: the subtle flower on the bottom of the skirt, the hair piece, the round shapes on the necklace and the flower accent on the purse. Did I mention my birthday is coming up? Sigh, anyway.. The gorgeous dress is from Dress911(and is only $54.95 … I know!!!)  The shoes are this season’s Badgley Mischka, the necklace is Esprit, Red, black, cream – these are timeless classics that never go out of style. Incidentally, they are reappearing this season again! Have you noticed how convenient it is to have square scarves? You can tie them to purses and change the entire look! The scarf you see here actually comes with the purse, but you can change it up to match your outfit. LOVE! Sigh, I need to go shopping.
