Affordable Accessories

Hillary Ureña offers a guide to wearing the hottest accessories, right now: hats and headbands. On behalf of Jennifer Ouellette (, a New York City-based accessory designer, Ureña suggests party clothing and accessories that work well together:

  • A black velvet/stretch satin short dress would go well with a satin, velvet headband, gem headband or an animal print hat
  • Knits/knitted dresses call for fedoras made of felt or other fabrics
  • Sequin dresses would be beautifully set off by a felt hair clip with feathers or a solid satin hairclip
  • Tweeds look great when paired with a felt or canvas hat

And of course, soft flowers, like this Cara Accessories floral hairclip, at Nordstrom, when placed alongside a low knot or chignon can make any woman look phenomenal.
