Buttons can accessorize an outfit and take it from so-so to something really unique. During the winter, I bought some buttons for a velvet jacket I had purchased from Talbot's. The buttons were really, really plain and just did not add anything to the jacket. So, I purchased some buttons that had a bit more oomph. In the before photo, the buttons are plain and unadorned. In the after, the gold and enamel buttons make the jacket look more expensive. I think it is the details that make an outfit and buttons are a wonderful accessory to add a distinctive touch.
