It’s all in the details. Accessories can really make or break your outfits! Even the most well-put together outfits can look trashy or off with the smallest accessory.
We list down key accessories every woman must own and have a few tips to make sure one can use them well.
1. Jewelry: Rings, Earrings, Necklaces and Bracelets.
Pair jewelry with other key accessories we will mention below.
If you would like to use everything – earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings – in an outfit, feel free to do so. However, do not wear huge earrings and a necklace. Just just one then add a bracelet or ring. You can have one statement piece jewelry – either huge, bold, or overpowering – and keep the others one simple but nice.
Belts can be statement pieces and can be worn over shirts, blazers, dresses, etc. It can emphasize a small waist so avoid this when you are trying to draw eyes from your stomach area.
Scarves can create multiple looks with outfits. Choose them to add color, print and even texture to your wardrobe. Don’t limit yourself to putting them around the neck – use them in your bags, wrists or even in your heads!
You can pair bold colored shoes to an outfit that has neutral colors and you already have made a fashion statement!
Eyeglasses are not just merely eyewear – they are statement accessories too!
There are also hats, jackets, hosiery like funky tights and stockings! The possibilities for accessorizing are endless!
Now tips on how to use these accessories:
1. Don’t overdo it!
While layering is the trend, be careful not to go overboard. If you like to accessorize with jewelry, be sure to just stick with one area if you want to do some layering. If you are doing layering in one area, skip wearing bold or big pieces of jewelry in other areas.
2. No one will ever know – use fashion pieces!
You don’t have to own expensive jewelry to be fashionable. Don’t be shy when it comes to wearing fake pieces – faux gold, silver or jewels can dress up outfits and no one will have to know that they aren’t real! Just make sure you buy the higher quality because cheap jewelry tarnishes pretty quickly.
3. Choose one or two accessories and skip the rest.
Don’t wear accessories all at once – you might end up looking trashy, not classy!
The key here is to experiment and do one thing at a time. For example, lay out your little black dress (LBD) and then try accessorizing one by one. Does the belt look better or a gorgeous necklace will do? Can I pair it up with funky tights or just wear red stilettos? And you will be surprised that with just one dress, you can create dozens of looks just by using accessories!
