YOU MUST ACCESSORIZE! StyleKontrol Favorite Accessories!

Accessories can make or break an outfit. But, you MUST ACESSORIZE! StyleKonrol has selected our Top trending accessories for 2017, that never quite went out of style.

The word accessory tends to make people nervous. Accessories are usually categorized as jewelry and a purse or handbag. But, they are so much more; backpacks, shoes, belts, arm jewelry to sunglasses. Stylist, fashion designers and consumers will often become hesitant of adding accessories to an ensemble that speaks style without adding extra. But, there are so many times that accessories are needed.

Coco Chanel once said “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory,”  But what if just one piece of accessory is enough?

Below check out our must haves for 2017!
