Popular fashion accessories include jewelry, scarves, hats, belts, handbags, watches, sunglasses, leggings, and gloves. Household accessories are items you can move or replace, such as furniture, mirrors, rugs, and houseplants.
Adding fashion accessories to your outfits is a great way to transform your style, while household items can revitalize your whole home. Continue reading to explore some tips covering how to buy and care for both fashion and household accessories.
Buying Fashion Accessories
When you’re shopping for the best accessories to accentuate your flair, identify the items suited to your style and taste. Do you prefer loose-fitting clothing with flowing shirts or skirts? Perhaps you won’t want to invest in belts when you’re shopping, but you might feel casual leather bags and rope-style necklaces suit your style. You can complement your leather bag with leather shoes or boots and complete the look with a leather coat.
Whether you’re shopping for scarves, earrings, or handbags, search for items you like and feel comfortable wearing. If you’re uncomfortable, you won’t have the polished flair you desire.
Buying Household Accessories
Working with an interior designer is a great way to simplify purchasing items for your home. Interior designers get a sense of your design style and work within your budget to get the household items that will transform your style and add some flair to your home. Interior designers consider colors, textures, personal needs, and your home’s physical features to identify the best furniture and features you can add to your personal space. Suppose you love nature but live in a condo without an outdoor space. Your interior designer can help you add wall shelves where you can set plants. Perhaps you struggle with insomnia and want to transform your bedroom into a restful space. Your interior designer will help you find soothing colors and textures that promote relaxation.
Use these tips for protecting jewelry. Buy insurance for expensive watches, bracelets, rings, earrings, and necklaces to protect your financial investment. Thieves target valuable jewels, making it a good idea to limit where you wear gemstones and other expensive jewelry pieces to prevent them from being lost or stolen. It’s also a good idea to store expensive jewelry and other valuables in a locked safe.
You can also protect your jewelry by preserving its value. Pay for a cleaning service to prevent toxins from building up on your jewelry. Expert cleaners can also repair scratches and polish gemstones to maintain their value. If you aren’t sure how much your jewelry’s worth, get an appraisal and talk to a jeweler about steps you can take to ensure your jewelry retains its value.
Protecting Fashion and Household Accessories
Airborne pollutants can damage fashion and household accessories. Still, you can protect these items by investing in a REME HALO induct air purifier and maintaining your home’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. Your HVAC system draws air through vents, warms the air or extracts heat from the air, and sends the air back through ducts and out supply vents. Your indoor air can pick up pollutants and allergens during this journey, such as pet dander, pollen, mold, and chemicals. Your HVAC system can also spread bacteria and viruses throughout your home. Investing in regular HVAC maintenance reduces the volume of toxins in the air.
Mold can make paint flake, damaging the finish on furniture and artwork throughout your home. Toxins such as cigarette smoke can settle into scarves, handbags, hats, couches, and cushions, tainting them with an unpleasant odor. Allergens can linger on fabrics and other surfaces, causing symptoms such as itching, watery eyes, sneezing, and coughing. Installing a whole-home air purifier ensures you aren’t storing clothing in musty rooms and keeps your furnishings and fashion items free from contaminants.
Buying ideal fashion and household items involves identifying your personal style and preferences. You can protect your fashion and household items by cleaning and securing valuables, investing in your home’s air quality, and preventing toxins from building up inside your home.
