Unsung Wardrobe Heroes, Part I: Accessories

Posted by Nicci Hicks on


We all have them: those pieces in our wardrobe that define our personal style. They have this seemingly unique power to make our looks our own. For me, accessories take center stage. Accessories provide interest. They extend the life of your wardrobe and give it personality. With that, welcome to part one of our two-part series about wardrobe-essentials, starting with (drumroll) accessories I cannot live without.

Loafers: Loafers may be the MVP of my shoe closet. They're reliable, versatile, and functional. Whether I opt for a soft moccasin-like loafer from Jamie Haller or a more structured style from Freda Salvador depends on how I am feeling and where I am going. Loafers manage to bridge the gap between dressy and casual in a way that most shoes cannot. 

The OG Sambas: The OG Adidas Sambas have had a steadfast presence in my wardrobe dating back to when my school uniforms restricted the expression of my creativity.  Fast forward to today, and they’re the veritable chameleons in my shoe repertoire—always in sync, yet never out of place.

  Statement Necklace: If I used the three-word method to define my style, it would be classic, modern, and dimensional. You’ll often see me in a tee or button-down, but a bold necklace (or another piece of bold jewelry) instantly adds personality and often dimension to my look.

Silver Shoes: Gold can be too dressy. Rose gold can be limiting. But silver is just right. When I want to dress something up or if I’m unsure what shoe to pair with a look, silver always adds just the right amount of friction to a look to make it work.

Black Heeled Mules: From jeans to dresses, heeled mules effortlessly elevate almost any outfit and style. This is why they have long had a presence in my wardrobe as an essential tool. The Loeffler Randall Milena and Freda Salvador Valentina are two current styles that you can walk in with confidence and ease. 

Accessories can be the difference makers in your wardrobe. They provide the finishing touches to make your look just right. When it comes to identifying your key staples, identify the pieces you love and be creative with how and where to wear them.
