Naked! That is what you might as well be if you have no accessories to go with your capsule wardrobe. After all, it's the clothes that maketh the man, but it's the bags shoes and bling that maketh women, right? With that in mind, it's essential that you learn to accessorise your capsule wardrobe effectively, something that I can provide some advice on in the post below. Picture link

Bags and handbags
Choosing the right handbag can be a minefield at the best of times,  but when it comes to picking one that goes with nearly every outfit in your capsule wardrobe it can seem almost impossible! Of course, many women resort to the safe, and admittedly stylish option of picking a plain black bag, as this will match most pieces. However, only choosing plain black bags can get very dull, and just as other accessories do, your bags should be adding character, texture and depth to your outfits. That is why even if you have to have one black handbag you should also invest in a few others as well. Pick one in the same shade or a tone that is slightly darker than the accent color in your capsule wardrobe, as this will look great with your more colorful pieces, and also jazz up an otherwise boring outfit. Lastly, don't forget that you will need a decent evening bag as well. Here you really are going for impact, so pick a color that boldly contrasts with the pieces you are going to be wearing it with. Extra points if you can work in metallics and sequences as well, as a little bling never did an evening outfit any harm! *This is a partnership post.

Talking of bling, finding the right jewelry to set off your capsule wardrobe can be another hurdle to vault. After all, it means matching each item with every possible sequence of outfit, doesn't it? Well no, not necessary, because you can apply the same thinking as you did to create your clothes capsule to your jewelry buys as well. In fact, choosing some fairly neutral pieces that will set off any combination of outfit perfectly, can be a great way to spend less money and still look great. Don't limit yourself just to necklaces and bracelets either, as you can get some fantastic body jewelry now too, all at a very reasonable price. This being an item that can be used to easily add extra interest and drama to an otherwise basic outfit,  thus making it a perfect choice for someone with a capsule wardrobe.

Shoes are a crucial part of any outfit, but when shopping for footwear that match with a capsule wardrobe, you need to remember one thing, try them on at home with all of your options! After all, there is no point investing in some killer heels that look fabulous with one skirt but can't be worn with any of your pants or jeans! Now I'm not saying every pair has to match every single outfit you have but to accessorize your capsule wardrobe effectively you really will want to have the least amount of pairs to go with the most outfits!
