Term: Accessories 
Meaning: Additional ornamentation to accompany the garment in order to create a certain look/image [shoes,jewellery etc.]
Items apart from the garment itself, which complement the whole outfit. Using them can add detail to an outfit when the garment's style is plain, or when the fabric from which the garment is made has no interesting visual effects. Many accessories also have another more practical use beyond that of style.
