accessories can completely change the feel of an outfit. With the same outfit base, accessories can help you dress it up or dress it down, make it work in the summer or the winter, make it preppy or boho, and so on.
Like this black dress- versatile! Stitch Fix: Love the style of this dress and how it doesn't cling anywhere. Easy to style differently with different accessories. Wish the neckline had more interest, though.
