When one thinks of Iris Apfel what likely comes to mind is the art of wearing accessories. Here are a few memorable quotes from Apfel about what accessories can do to elevate your wardrobe.

My mother knew if you bought a couple of really good architectural outfits and put your money into accessories, you could create a million different looks. She taught that to me, which I think was invaluable.

Invest in basics in your wardrobe, then use accessories to change your look.

I get more compliments on accessories than anything else. I think they’re kind of like herbs and spices. They give zest and zing to an outfit.

You can really make an outfit yours by how you accessorize.

Here are a few memorable pieces from her collection.
