If you know how to accessorize well, you got no problems dressing up smartly, my friend! Accessorizing is the simplest, yet one of the most important aspect of your dressing that adds flavour and shine to who you are and how you look. The best part about accessorizing – it doesn’t come costly. You have so many accessory options for all types of clothing that it’s become really easy to get your hands on them, and for affordable prices!
But because there are too many choices out there in the fashion world, here comes the most essential question: Are you accessorizing right?
It is super important to know how to accessorize with your outfit – blending with the colours of your outfit, simple yet catchy, draws attention but not too much that it hurts the eyes, flows well with your personality and helps you stand out in a subtle way.
Here are some tips that you can always fall back on for the basic rules of accessorizing –
- Having options for jewellery is a good thing
Jewellery is one the most accessorized items and to own a variety of them is always good. You can pair your outfit with earrings, bracelets, hairpins, necklaces, rings, etc that go with it and enhance your look. Size matters too. You need to be careful that your jewellery is not too small or too big. They should be the right size for your outfit – casual or formal, depending on how much focus you want to give them. Go bold with your jewellery but remember to keep it simple too. Find that balance.
- Grab that handbag
Handbags work two purposes – hold all your essentials and give your outfit the ‘cherry on top’ look. Two birds, one stone. Go crazy with your handbag choices, but never go out of class. Be it a purse, a tote, a sling bag, a satchel, or any other type depending on your use – class is what you are looking for. Do not settle for any bag that doesn’t give you that classy feel. Also, check for practicality and durability.
- Scarves are beautiful
Scarves are probably the best accessory when it comes to boosting your look to a different level. They are cool in style, add a fresh splash of colour to your outfit, and give satisfactory looks with the designs and patterns they come in. They are a gift for sore eyes! But be careful to choose the right colours and patterns to go with your outfits. You don’t want to turn out to be a fashion disaster.
- Wear a hat
Hats are a great option too! They are in fashion, have always been. It’s a classic look you’re going for when you add a hat into the mix. Hats are meant for casual outfits and you can use soft pastel colours that blend well with your clothes. Added bonus: Hats make your face look slender.
- Get that belt out of your wardrobe
Now, belts too have a dual role like your handbag – they add in that dash of style but also work as an important function for your outfit. Let your belt stand out instead of matching it with your other accessories. Again, remember to keep it bold but subtle. The best part of using a belt as an accessory is that you can wear them with multiple outfits, not just pants. You can wear them with dresses, shirts, tunics, skirts, palazzos, jumpsuits, etc. You can experiment with different ways of wearing the belt to compliment your outfit and body type in the best way.
