Fashion tips: essential accessories for a woman's wardrobe
There are several essential items that every women should have in her wardrobe. Some of these vital accessories include cardigans, wallets, hoop earrings, and scarves. A woman's wardrobe should include items that are not only stylish and flattering, but versatile and functional as well. There are several essential accessories that no modern woman should be without. Check them out:
Cardigans Cardigans are button-up sweaters, and they are a key wardrobe accessory that every woman should have. It is a good idea to have four cardigans: one black one, one tan, one white, and one gray. By getting these four colors in particular, you are pretty much covering all of your bases as far as being able to match with any other item in your wardrobe. You will be hard-pressed to find anything that doesn't match with at least one of these colors. Many times, you wear a short-sleeved shirt or a tank top, but you need something to bring along with you that is lighter than a jacket in case you feel like covering up for whatever reason. Well, a cardigan will solve that problem easily and fashionably. Brightly-Colored Scarves Brightly-colored scarves are an important accessory to have because they can add vibrancy to your style. If you are like most women, you love the slimming qualities of black clothes, but you don't want to look like you are in mourning. Adding a colorful scarf to your outfit can completely change the "all-black" look. Instead of looking gothic and somber, you will look artistic and sleek.
Hooded Sweatshirt Not every day is a glamorous day, and for those not-so-glam days when you still want to look nice, a hooded sweatshirt is an essential. Your hooded sweatshirt should be a fitted style. You never ever want to wear a big, baggy hooded sweatshirt because you will lose your figure and femininity under all that fabric. Black Pumps Black pumps should be a staple in your wardrobe, and you will probably get more use out of these than any other pair of shoes you will ever own. While most women love to have dozens of shoes, the black pump is the staple shoe because it can be worn with so many things ? dresses, skirts, jeans, suits, and even lingerie.
Hoop Earrings Hoop earrings are very stylish and versatile accessories that are sure to look great with almost anything that you may be wearing. You should purchase either silver or gold, depending on the metal that you prefer. If you have to make the shift from work clothes to evening clothes, a pair of hoop earrings is perfect for either setting, so they will give you one less thing to worry about! Bag Hands-down, the absolute most essential accessory item is a bag. Many women feel that they keep their whole life in their bag ? their money, their date book, their extra nylons, their powder compact and lipstick, photos, etc. If you can only afford one bag, make it a black or tan one so that you have a good chance of matching with most of your outfits.
Black Wrap Every little black dress deserves a little black wrap. If you have your sexy little dress on, the last thing you will want to do is hide it underneath a jacket. A wrap can give you a little shelter from the cold without sheltering your dress from view. Wallet Wallets aren't just a place to hold your cash and credit cards anymore ? they are a fashion statement. This may not seem like a wardrobe accessory that you would care about, but many women, especially singles, go out to bars and clubs with just a wallet ? not a bag. Therefore, you want your wallet to be cute and functional. For one, you should get a wallet that closes securely, rather than being open at the top like a men's wallet. Also, get a wallet that is likely to match most of your outfits, like a black or a tan one. Hair Ties Hair ties are an essential accessory because you never know when you are going to need one. If you have a short (too short for a ponytail) hairstyle, then you are exempt from this essential accessory.

TEEN AGED GIRLS
Find a small to medium sized basket and line with pink tissue paper or raffia grass. Buy a sampler pack of flavored lip glosses, powders, lotions, a makeup kit and a light sporty fragrance and artistically arrange. Don't forget bracelets, rings, watches, earrings, and necklaces. Wrap in colored cellophane and tie with a bow. TEEN AGED BOYS
Place a couple of their favorite c.d.s in the basket along with a pocket comb, cologne, and skin care products designed for males.
Using a medium sized basket, place a thin and soft blanket in as a liner. Select a couple of dolls, stuffed animals, cars, or whatever toys the child might enjoy inside. OLDER CHILDREN
Big kids are wild about cartoon pencils and erasers, stickers and trading cards. Add small games (like a Game Boy along with accessories) and the latest Harry Potter book. INFANTS AND BABIES
Place a soft receiving blanket in along with socks, onesies, teething rings, rattlers, and a small plush toy. Baby brush sets, clippers, bottles, and pacifiers can be added. Or make a basket filled with baby skin products and diapers.
Buy a couple bottles of wine and add cheese, crackers, a cork screw, a pretty bottle top cork, and a couple of wine glasses. BBQ FANS
Make up a batch of your famous BBQ sauce and can it in a pretty jar. Add bags of chips, beer and/or cokes, homemade potato salad, and big soft cookies wrapped in colored cellophane. Line the basket with red gingham cloth napkins, and add a package of rolls and a can of baked beans. TEA OR COFFEE LOVERS
Place gourmet tea or coffee in a basket along with cookies, tea cups or coffee mugs, pretty cloth napkins, and a ceramic tea pot (or coffee pot.) Add sugar cubes and flavored creamers. You could also include flavored syrups. If the person you are giving the gift to likes music or reading, throw in a c.d. or a novel.
FRUIT AND BREAD BASKETS
Buy an assortment of various fruits and create a basket filled with fruits and nuts. Add homemade breads and rolls, or cookies, candies, or other goodies. SWEETHEARTS
A romantic gift idea would be to add sexy lingerie and massage oils into a basket. Include flowers, scented bubble bath, a soft jazzy c.d., candles and a bottle of champagne, along with two wine glasses. ARTISTS
How about creating a basket filled with art supplies? Include paint brushes, different types of paints, markers, pencils, and sketch books.
There are many more ideas but by now you should have the picture. Think about what the person you are giving the basket to and then create a special gift that they will remember forever.
