So, we’ve got the men covered with their accessories. What about the ladies? Don’t worry! You don’t need to be a clothes horse and have an array of outfits for every date you go on. Focus on purchasing some key pieces and make them look different by adding accessories. Here are a few suggestions to shake things up:

Funky, bold or sexy heels always make an outfit. It doesn’t matter if you prefer flats or stilettos, a solid pair of funky or sexy shoes will have an immediate impact on your outfit. Even if you’re wearing a simple black dress, you can take your outfit a few decibels higher by wearing the right shoes. A great selection of fashionable shoes can be found at Gravity Pope in the west end. I love these Aida pumps featured below!


Don’t wear your heart on your sleeve. Wear it around your neck instead.  A statement necklace will add sparkle and can make for a great conversation starter. If you’re not big on wearing jewellery, consider wearing a pendant which will still add sparkle without the weight. Check this one out from iccha Jewelry named Warrior Love. Wear it with a sharp cocktail dress or tunic or even casually with a T-shirt and skinny jeans.

Make your pout kissable with the perfect gloss.  I’m a big fan of gloss. I even wear it when working out. One thing I learned from wearing gloss is, don’t cheap out! Otherwsie, you’ll get globby, sticky lips. The flavour, too, will disappoint. The best gloss out there is from MAC Cosmetics. It glides on, tastes like honey and comes in an assortment of shades making your pout utterly kissable.


Meow, this kitty’s got claws.  Get your paws in check with today’s hottest manicures. Funky shades, artistic motifs and jewels have become mainstream and worn on nails regularly. Essie nail polish always delivers with its striking shades and easy application. Even if you don’t opt for the watermelon nail art, make sure to at least get your nails in check with a simple manicure so they look tidy and polished. One of the best places to do that is at Pol’shed Nail Bar.

Now that you have your accessories in check, go get’em tiger![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
