“Accessories make the outfit.” How rich would you be if you got a nickel every time you heard or read that line? Learning how to accessorize is an important skill everyone should master. Not only does it express your personality but takes your outfit to the next level. Even though there are literally hundreds of articles on accessorizing, many still struggle with getting it right. Here are a few of my tips for how to use accessories to take your style game up a notch:
- Make a Statement. If you’re wearing a basic outfit, pick a statement accessory to stand out and pair it with simple add-ons that compliment the look. Remember a great outfit is about balance, your clothes and accessorizes shouldn’t all be competing for attention.
- Less is More. Several people say “more is more” but I disagree, especially for accessorizing work wear. An outfit will look more sophisticated and thought through when you wear a few, well placed extras.
- Mix and Match. Just like mixing colors, using accessories to mix in patterns, colors, and textures adds depth to your look.
- Choose a Talisman. Many women have their equivalent of a super suit to protect them from a rough day, but on the days you leave your super suit at home remember to don an accessory with sentimental value to wear.
Accessorizing doesn’t have to be hard. You can choose to pull a “Steve Jobs” and wear the same accessorizes every day as a calling card for people to remember you by or you can just go wild with it. The choice is yours to make. Don’t let others dictate how you choose to represent yourself as long as you feel beautiful! If you need help finding your definition of beautiful, let me help you!
