The right accessories play a huge role in shaping how your final ensemble looks. They have the power to instantly transform a bland outfit into something stylish and trendy. However, wearing the same old accessories over and over can get a little boring sometimes. So here are 7 fabulous ways our bloggers have inspired us to style our old accessories in a completely new and different way!
1. Bringin’ sexy back

If you are wearing a top or a dress with a low-cut back, then just wear your trendy necklace front to back. It is a nice way of highlighting your back and creating a style statement. Make sure to layer a few of your necklaces one over the other (and not just a single one!) for that extra edge.
2. Wear big earrings as a brooch

Almost all of us have a pair of statement earrings that we like to flaunt every chance we get. But wearing such earrings on a normal working day may not seem possible. But here’s the good news- You actually can! Just take one earring and simply pin it on a solid coloured piece of clothing, or even your bag. It works like a trendy little brooch and makes your outfit stand out!
3. Wear a neck piece as an arm-cuff

Chunky bracelets and arm-cuffs automatically give that extra edge to your ensemble...Especially if you’re trying to pull off an ethnic or fusion look. Wrap a chunky necklace around your arm - this will transform it into a fabulous arm-cuff that is bound to turn a few heads.

4. Wear a pendant as a maang tikka
This is the oldest trick in the book and is still as fabulous! Wearing pendants as maang tikas
creates a certain whimsical and dreamy look that we can never get enough of. It’s neither bold nor too bland, but rather, just perfect to create a style statement! Make heads turn in your beautiful Indian attire with this simple style hack.

The boho fashion trend never really goes out of style! Channeling the free spirit in all of us, this trend reminds us to take it a little easy, be who we want to be, and to do it in style. Not sure how to rock this trend? Fish out your old anklet (paayal
) from your cupboard and style it as a head chain. Throw on a fringed jacket or a maxi skirt and run free!
