Here at Shop It To Me, we love a good accessory. Be it our favorite designer sunglasses, the bag of the season, or the shoes that you never want to take off, accessories are our thing and for 2019, they are a seriously important ingredient in building a fabulous, endlessly stylish wardrobe.
The one problem with accessories? They can be pricey.
Who doesn’t love a designer pair of shoes or an ultra-luxe handbag? And with the chicness and beauty of designer accessories, comes the price tag to match. However, that’s where a little visit to Shop It To Me helps you to source the key fashion accessories for your looks at a snippet of the original price. Have we caught your attention now? We thought so!
So, today, let’s take a look at the top 10 key fashion accessories that our stylists, here at Shop It To Me, think every woman should be packing in her stylishly put together closet. From workwear outfits to dinner or girl’s night out, these accessories can mix and match to perfection to ensure you get more than your fair wear out of each one. Let’s dive in.
1. Barely-There Heels
The terminology is relatively new but the notion is not. Barely-there heels or strappy sandals as you might refer to them are a must-have for every closet. Whether it comes to choosing nude, black or a statement bright hue, the choice is yours but the main things to check off the list are simple straps, preferably just one over the toe and one around the ankle and a heel that’s high but not so high that you would ever struggle to walk in them.
Strappy heels like this will serve you come summer and winter, with black skinny jeans, ripped and distressed blue jeans, skirts of all lengths, dresses of all styles and even evening wear. Find the perfect barely-there heels and you’ll never want to let go of them. Hence, why investing in a better-quality version is a great decision for such a fashion accessory staple.
2. A Carry-All for All Occasions
A larger tote bag or “carry-all” is a must-have for a modern fashionista’s closet and a key accessory this season with big bags all over the fashion week runways. Sometimes you won’t need a huge bag that can carry everything. However, you always need one in your everyday wardrobe because not only are they so useful, but they’re also a chic and effortlessly stylish way to transport your necessities from place to place.
Throw a tote over your elbow with a dressy work outfit or add it to a relaxed weekend vibe for a smarter touch, giving even a loungewear look a more structured and polished finish. With brands, such as Ferragamo, Prada, and Bottega Veneta, invest in a designer carry-all tote from Shop It To Me’s huge collection that will last you season after season.
3. A Silk Scarf
You might not think this is a closet essential, especially if you haven’t got one or even tried one with your style yet. But once you do, you’ll never turn back. When it comes to silk scarves, you can opt for simple or printed, contemporary and abstract or authentically classic. This will all depend on your unique, individual style.
The beauty of a silk scarf is the versatility it holds. Wear it as a scarf wrapped around your neck in its purest form. Tighten the look for a more fitted neck scarf or let it fall elegantly over a chic blazer. Alternatively, wear it in your hair to add a whimsical and stylish touch to any outfit, wearing it as a headband or simply tied around a ponytail or bun and left to fall loosely with your hair. Alternatively, you can update and evolve any of your handbags by adding your silk scarf fashion staple to any of your handles for an ultra-designer finish.

4. A Wallet That Doubles as A Clutch
Every woman needs a beautiful wallet. If you’re still using an old battered black wallet that brings you no joy every time you reach the ATM, then switch it up and invest in something a little (or a lot) more beautiful. Plus, the perfect wallet chosen well can easily double as a chic mini clutch, perfect to take on girl’s night out as your bag of choice.
From high-end brands, such as Marc Jacobs to ultra-luxe designer labels, like Dolce & Gabbana and Valentino, you’ll find a range of all the best designer deals for fashion accessories with both classics and statement picks to choose from. Whether you love a simple zip fasten or an envelope-style fold wallet, this is one fashion accessory staple not to be underestimated to complete your day to day looks.
5. A Chic Pair of Flats
According to Vogue, we should all own a pair of chic flat shoes and we couldn’t agree more. Flats can be tricky because lots of them are either unflattering or uncomfortable and to have the perfect pair they need to be endlessly flattering with every fashion look, comfortable for all-day wear, including running around the city, and beautiful quality to ensure they’re long-lasting enough to survive some heavy use.
When it comes to flats that you really can wear with everything from palazzo pants and skinny-leg trousers to midi skirts and even shorter skirts and dresses, the perfect option is a pointed flat pump. Elongating the leg in a way that a round-toe shoe cannot, a pointed pump keeps any look chic and on-trend.
6. Black Heeled Booties
Ok, so for this one maybe you can’t wear it with everything. As in you can’t wear them with a bikini and kimono (or could you?). However, you can wear them with almost everything and they are a wardrobe staple that we just couldn’t leave out.
A black heeled boot is a sleek option that takes a look from day to night with ease. Paired with anything from denim to flowing maxi dresses or an on-trend midi skirt, choose clean lines and whatever size heel is manageable for you to ensure you get the most wear out of your choice. With brands that range from all your favorite high street labels to high-end designers, let Shop It To Me alert you every time your shoe size sees a price drop.
7. A Solid Pair of Sunglasses
Underrated as an important accessory, a chic, beautifully luxury pair of sunglasses can pull together an entire outfit in an instant, proving that they well and truly belong here on this list of essential fashion accessories.
When it comes to selecting a staple pair of sunglasses that you’ll wear season after season and with every type of outfit from casual to dressier or even professional, style is key. High street sunglasses’ trends tend to evolve rapidly, so when investing in designer glasses, it can often be wise to choose classic shapes, such as slightly heavier frames and either sleek black or tortoiseshell. From Celine to Prada, find designer sunglasses with over 50% off the retail price at Shop It To Me and add a chic accessory to your wear-with-everything wardrobe.
8. Simple White Sneakers
Classic white sneakers with or without branding are a must-have for a chic goes-with-everything closet. Soles that aren’t too thin and not as thick as the trend-led sneakers of the season will ensure that your choice never goes out of style.
This kind of sneaker can pair with your favorite casual loungewear, leggings, jeans and even a summer dress, making them a staple accessory that mustn’t be missed. When it comes to this classic style, classic brands are the only way to go. But a classic style from a classic brand never gets reduced in price, right!? Wrong! On Shop It To Me, we’ve always got options for you. From the likes of Adidas, Nike, and Puma, never pay full retail price again, even for fashion staples.

10. Chic Small Hoops
Hoops are big for 2019 but they’re a classic look that can dress up anything from activewear to denim or dress down a formal look that you’re trying to get a little extra use out of.
Add hoops to your best beach look this summer or keep it boho-inspired with a floral maxi dress and hoops, this spring. However you like to style them, hoops are a must-have and if you’ve not tried them yet, now is the time.
