Below are just two samples which I picked up on different occasions - one, perfect to adorn the collar of a dress, and the other, ideal for adding interest to a pair of brogues as a replacement for laces, as a sash when worn around the waist. Pieces such as these are an inexpensive and creative way of enhancing any item in your wardrobe, and can instantly transform a simple garment into something unique. In addition to the beautiful, bespoke effect that can be achieved from adding your own chosen trim, the process of actually choosing them can be so relaxing and enjoyable.. at least I certainly find it is! My only issue when I enter a shop such as Rubanseque is that I can end up staying there for far too long, trying to decide what to buy.
Even if you have no aptitude or interest for/in sewing, it is very easy to add motifs or embellishments to outfits. Another bonus is that the creative thinking involved in choosing the appropriate piece is a fantastic way to develop new ideas for your wardrobe, in terms of colour, patterns, designs, and how you put pieces together. If you have never tried adding to outfit in this way, I would highly recommend that you give it a try; I guarantee that you will get more than just a unique garment from the process.
