Accessories may make up a small part of your outfit, but it's more significant than you think. A laid-back jeans-and-T-shirt combo, for example, can look a bit more polished with the addition of pearl studs or a leather watch. That said, it's useful to own a set of "everyday" jewelry you can regularly reach for—these are pieces that can go with anything and everything and can elevate a simple getup. Check them out below:
1. Stud earrings

2. Thin, delicate necklace
Its minimalist style makes it easy to wear. You won't need to think about whether or not your necklace clashes with your neckline. You can layer it with other simple chains to instantly dress up a basic OOTD.
FN Tip: When layering necklaces, you can start by piling three necklaces together. Play around with various lengths!

A watch can make a statement on its own, but it also wouldn't hurt to team it up with a stack of bracelets.
