This morning I saw a television problem where the statement was that accessories worn with an outfit, often serve to accentuate a body part you find beautiful. Maybe I've been blind but I had never seen it that way... I'd even think some accessories draw the attention away from the body part they're worn on.
I think that with accessories they meant everything from earrings, hairbands, necklaces, bracelets, to a flashy belt, pantyhose, open shoes,...
I must admit I'm not certain about the anwer. Looking forward to your insight!

They simply belong to the outfit but do none of the above
I think they're meant to draw attention towards a specific body part, but you can use them to draw attention away too.
For example: Piercings (septum, belly button, tongue, ears) and basically any type of jewelry all draw attention to parts of the body. Other things include: Belts can be used to accentuate a small waist, corsets, fancy leggings, panty hose ( they helps sculpt the butt and legs).
For drawing attention away is harder to identify: Shawls, make up, any shoes with height... just anything you use to "improve" you appearance.
And then there are lines. These can hide ("improve") and or draw attention to the body. Vertical- Give an apparance of a slimer___. Horizontal- Makes things appear curvier.
It can apply to all those above. Some wear a necklace that draws to their cleavage to accentuate it. I prefer a longer necklace that draws away from my upper half. I also have a statement watch that I wear almost everyday just because I like it. But it really depends on what your trying to do
it depends on where it is. obviously a necklace draws attention to a womans neck, if short, or breast, if long. very showy belts draw attention to a mans critch fro sure.. a bracelette or watch on the other hand, I think we're paying more attention to than that persons wrist.
This tie is the automatic centerpiece forcing you to scan downwards for the same benefit.
The gain is that the first picture scans up into a hidden face while the second scans down to emphasize the body. You'll automatically formulate your decision based on these things and then scan the whole picture finding the person more attractive or enticing to a degree or holding more of an ideal (in this case masculinity) than you may have previously.
