As a newlywed, I've just kicked off my new journey in life, but so much has changed already. One thing that hasn't (and won't) change is my passion for finding exciting ways to flip pieces within my own wardrobe. In fact, I've even found a way to rework some of my favorite pieces I wore on my wedding day in June.

But these tips aren't exclusive to me only. No matter how big or intimate your wedding day was, you should definitely consider wearing your accessories again. To pull the looks off, you simply have to be willing to have fun with an open mind. Since you went through countless hours to snag just the right thing to wear as you walked down the aisle, I'm sure your find was so fierce you'll want to wear again.

Fall trends are in your favor, too: The runways and style magazines are full of white pieces and ornate jewels. So go ahead and grab that bling out of your jewelry box and add an edge of drama to your look -- again!

Shinymix statement necklace, $44

Of course, you can wear those shiny wedding jewels to a formal event, but consider glamming up a casual outfit with your special statement necklace.

Baublebar earrings, $34

There's just something about wearing gorgeous earrings that gracefully graze our necks. On your wedding day, the look made a chic statement, but for the fall season, get mileage out of those sparkling gems by pairing them with a shoulder-baring shirt, a sharp blazer or a casual outfit.

Calypso St. Barth's headband, $195

Adorning your hair with an elaborate sparkler for your wedding is a major part of the "princess for a day" thing. After the big day, some of those hair accessories can definitely be worn again. With metallic, brocade and other rich textures making an appearance for fall 2015, you'll have no problem coordinating your hair accessory with an outfit for a festive night out.

White by Vera Wang for David's Bridal shoe boots, $99

Any shoe-loving woman can appreciate the opportunity to wear a standout pair more than once. Nowadays, brides opt for shoes that fully expresses their personality — so why not show off your personality again afterward? After all, that's what style is all about. If your wedding shoes had a non-traditional print or color, or an embellishment you loved, you should rock them again! Shoes with pizazz can be worked into any look to give it some attitude.
