Accessorizing with Jewelry is one of the most simplest and effective ways to make any outfit look great. While we are a fan of exquisite gems and the best of the best, we are also a big fan of finding “quality” at affordable prices! Shopping for choice pieces of great jewelry is as important as choosing your outfit. In fact, the right choices in accessorizing are part of your overall wardrobe selection. As Designer Michael Kors puts it, “I’ve always thought of accessories as the exclamation point of a women’s outfit” … it can make the simplest outfit come alive, or completely kill an otherwise great outfit! … Here we’re showcasing some of our favorite pieces. And of course, we are adding or have added these pieces to critiquemystyle.com!

There are a lot of reasons to accessorize your wardrobe. Can you believe it can save you money! How? you may ask. As I mentioned above, accessorizing can change the look of an outfit. Turn an otherwise plan or simple dress (already in your closet) into something that will look totally different. It’s the accessorizing that changes up the looks. Imagine having one dress that can be accessorized multiple ways. Just by changing the style and type of jewelry it can completely change the look of that dress. This can cost you a lot less than having multiple dresses. “Just a thought!” Another reason? Well, just think of how most of us feel when we walk into a room and god forbid someone else is wearing the same dress, … having your dress accessorized with fun, elegant and eye catching jewelry will give your dress a look of it’s own!
