Update Your Look with Accessories
The holiday season brings many outings, events and parties, yet having a closet full of clothing to take you through all these festivities without wearing the same outfit twice can pose a challenge. One great way to get more mileage from the clothes you already own is to freshen up your look with accessories, which can be the icing on the cake. They finish of your look and make you feel pulled together. They’re also a fun way to express your personality and have a little fun! Here are a few tips for adding accessories to your look:
1 – Wear accessories that are proportional to your body type. If you’re petite, opt for delicate necklaces and small purses. If you’re goddess-sized, feel free to rock a big handbag or a chunky necklace. You want to complement your look while creating balance.
2 – Choose a theme, or creating groupings that repeat a color, texture or pattern. When you wear a red scarf, a red bracelet and red shoes, you can wear this grouping with anything from a little black dress to jeans and a sweater and you’ll have a cohesive look while making a statement.
3 – Create a signature look with your accessories. Wearing a scarf could become your signature, or you may be known for your funky watches. An armful of bangles, a chic hat, sexy boots…just make sure it’s something that really speaks to you. You can build a collection around those accessories you love, making it a pleasure to get dressed.
Let wearing accessories be a pleasure, and something that expresses your own personal style. Mix high end with low end and create a collection that you can continually add to. You’ll look fabulous and feel great!
