The economy has built up too many imbalances—consumer debt, overextended construction, impaired capital of banks, etc. Inevitably,the wholesale industry has also been affected in this storm. Now, the wholesalers have to face a grim reality – the sharply rised unemployment, and in a lot of cases, bankrupt.

Be Fashionable With Clothing Accessories

Wholesale Clothing Accessories

While some women focus on buying the most expensive clothing they can afford to look stylish, fashionable women have realized that expensive clothing doesn’t make someone look their best. Instead, it’s the accessories and how the look all comes together that reflects both your personality and helps you look your absolute best.Clothing accessories, from handbags to scarves to what you put in your hair, can create a very fashionable look without the need to wear overly trendly clothing. Fads come and go so quickly that you’d constantly have to be replacing your wardrobe to try to keep up with all the latest clothing- but with the right accessories you can make every item in your closet look fashionable and complete.First, you will want to be sure you have a few “must have” items at your disposal to help create your outfits:

- several belts, in a variety of sizes, colors and styles

- scarves, in a few different textures and colors

- purses and handbags

- hair accessories (ribbons, decorative clips, ponytail holders)

- shoes (a girl can never have too many different types of shoes!)

Once you have your accessory inventory built up, you can easily accessorize your outfits to pull together a complete, fashionable look that will impress even the girls in the latest, most expensive clothing from the trendy store in the mall!

You will want to choose accessories based on how they coordinate with the colors, textures and fabric of the clothing you’re wearing. If you stock your “accessory inventory” with neutral colored items, you’ll stretch your budget and be able to create more looks with the same items. You can almost always work in accessories that are solid colors of white, black and tan; but having a few selections in more vibrant colors will help you add interest to your favorite black dress or pants suit! Try pairing a red hat, red high heels and a red purse with your black pants suit and you’ll be an instant fashionista!

Keep your eye on the fashion magazines to see what women are wearing and how they accessorize. Are over-sized purses in style now, or tiny handbags? Do women wear stripes and floral prints together or are they keeping to more solid patterns at the moment? Most importantly- pick styles that you are comfortable with and that make you feel good because the better you feel the more confident you will be.

Jewelry, shoes and belts help you further accessorize your outfits and pull a complete look together. You don’t need a lot of jewelry, but having necklaces in different lengths will allow you to wear a longer chain with a v-neck shirt and a shorter chain with a sweater. Having matching bracelets or earrings will help you pull the look all together for a polished look. Pairing a wide belt with skinny pants is trendy, and you can often create a whole new look just by changing the style of jewelry you wear.

Here’s a trick that you can do with necklaces! If you want to help pull the focus away from your neck and face a bit, you can wear long necklaces as the eyes naturally will follow the line of the necklace.
