Fashion is very important because it is one way we differentiate ourselves and give ourselves a sense of identity. This is why when we are shopping for fashion accessories, we choose items that are the best representation of who we are. To get the most out of fashion accessories, many people choose items that have more than one function. Below, we will look at some fashion accessories that do more than one thing.


A good scarf can help you protect your neck from the cold while looking great. Scarves also do much more than that. A good scarf can also be turned into the perfect headdress. To use it for this purpose, you can follow some tutorials that will make using your scarf as a headdress fun and creative each time you do it.

A scarf can also be used as a belt. When you use a scarf like this, it can turn a simple outfit into a cute one, thereby helping you get more than one look out of a single outfit.

Leather USB Bracelet

While there are many ways of carrying your data around or transferring it from one device to another, nothing does this better than a USB stick. The problem with USB sticks is that they are easily lost, and when this happens, you can lose a lot of data in one go. A leather USB bracelet serves two purposes; it looks cute as a bracelet and performs as a USB device. Because it will always be around your wrist, there is virtually no chance of losing it.

If you do not like leather, there are similar models that use different materials for the strap.


Sunglasses are perhaps the most versatile fashion accessory you could get. Good sunglasses protect your eyes from harmful UV rays while completing your outfit. Sunglasses can also come in handy if you are sensitive to light, meaning that they can also help if you work in brightly-lit environments. The best thing about sunglasses is that they come in many different shapes, sizes, and styles so that it becomes easy to choose one that is right for you.


Smartwatches are the ultimate versatile fashion accessory. They come with so many functionalities, including letting you call, text, and receive emails, monitoring your health, and a lot more. There are so many different smartwatch models and designs on the market that it is hard not to find one that would be perfect for you.

Personalised Bar Necklaces

Necklaces can be unassuming fashion accessories, but some companies are ensuring they do not remain just that.  Mignon and Mignon’s vertical bar necklace can be personalised with any message for your loved one. They are a great gift because they convey exactly how you feel while standing out and looking great.

There are several options for the metal used on the pendant plus endless possibilities on what you can have engraved on the vertical bar. You can add initials, custom messages, or any other message that reminds the recipient of your special bond.

Shoe Inserts

Shoe inserts are a must-have for any lady who values comfortable and functional shoes. Shoe inserts can be used on almost any pair of shoes, and they are especially important if you love high heels. Although most people will never realise you have them inside your shoes, shoe inserts remain a very important fashion accessory.


For the mom who stays home watching the kids, there is no accessory that is as important as good sneaker shoes. Sneaker shoes are comfortable enough to allow a busy mom to walk around and stay on their feet for a long time. They are also versatile enough to allow for wearing inside and outside the house. And the best thing? A lot more companies are manufacturing fashionable sneakers. This means you can get a pair that affords you all the above, and that can be worn when you need to visit your kid’s school.

A Good Hat

As with sunglasses, a good hat is a must-have especially if you live in sunny areas. A good hat can be a fashion statement, part of your outfit, or a functional accessory to shield you from the sun. There are different types of hats and the one you decide to go with will depend on whether you need it as a fashion accessory or functional addition to your outfit.

Phone Clutch

How annoying is it when you try to get your phone out, and it is at the very bottom of your handbag? A reprieve has come in the form of clutches that serve as phone cases. With these clutches, your phone is always easy to reach.

These clutches come in so many different designs, looks, colours, and materials that it is very easy to find the right one for you. In addition, some of them also have extra pockets for other items like your lipstick, sunglasses, and anything else you always need with you.

A Designer Watch

When you buy a watch, you want it to be more than a fashion item; you want it to look good while performing really well. The TAG Heuer Aquaracer ticks both of those boxed nicely. This watch was designed and built with both fashion and durability in mind. The TAG Heuer Aquaracer is also perfect for those who never take off their watches, regardless of the situation. The TAG Heuer Aquaracer can survive in wet conditions and remain functional no matter what you put it through. The TAG Heuer Aquaracer being the ultimate sports watch, it is highly sought after by athletes who love it for its functionality and durability, and fans who love it for its design aesthetics. Chronext also has other authenticated designer watches; plus, you can sell a pre-owned watch if you fancy a change.

Tie Clips

Nowadays, tie clips serve as fashion accessories more than they serve their original purpose of keeping ties organised and in place. Tie clips are made in a variety of styles so that it is now easy to find conservative tie clips for the office and more serious settings, and fun, casual tie clips for more laid back situations.

Messenger Bags

Messenger bags are to men what handbags are to women; ways to easily carry everything that is important. Messenger bags have morphed into fashion accessories as more companies and fashion houses try to fill this gap. There are now so many different models that men can choose from. A good option for a man looking for a functional and stylish messenger bag is one with a cross-body strap. These messenger bags are comfortable and a great replacement for briefcases.


As with tie clips, cufflinks are not being used for far more than their original purpose. Cufflinks have become a fashion statement, although many people still use them for their original purpose. They come in many different designs and men also get the choice to order customised cufflinks.

Leather Wallets

Leather wallets are starting to fade in popularity, but they are still important for those who carry them. For fashion-centric men, leather wallets are the go-to option; they look great and they last longer than wallets made of other materials.

When buying fashion accessories, it is always a good idea to buy ones that have a second purpose in addition to looking good. If you can, try to choose these accessories as you will get better value for your money.
