We love Wikipedia’s description of a fashion accessory: An item which is used to contribute, in a secondary manner, to the wearer’s outfit. This term came into use in the 19th century! Here are our 6 perfect accessories, in red hot red, to transform your everyday look.
Step up to the stiletto’s super power! Hopelessly devoted to everything from high heels and peep-toes to sling-backs and platforms, the magical ability of a pair of high heels is undeniable.

A gorgeous selection of shoes available from Aldo’s, Zoom, Rage and Nine West.
DAY AND NIGHT
Less is definitely more if you swap your oversized handbag for a trendy clutch. Don’t let its size or formal reputation hold you back – a clutch bag, dressed up or down, is style perfection. Red patent leather purse from Truworths.
SHAPE YOUR STYLE
Belts have gone from functional to fashionable and by accentuating your waist with one of these accessories you’ll create an enviable hourglass shape – real or not. A slim figure loves a fuller belt while a slim belt is ideal for a curvy shape. If you have a fuller shape best avoid a belt, completely. A stylish selection of belts from Cameroon.
THE FINISHING TOUCH
If you feel your outfit needs a little something extra to tie it all together, a complementing necklace might be all you need. Fashionable costume jewellery by Accessorize, Sass Diva and Lulu Belle.
The fastest way to update your look and express your inner style is by investing in a gorgeous cocktail ring; it makes such a style statement. Go on, you deserve it! Sterling silver and cubic zirconia ring from American Swiss.
