Whether your personality is a little unique, classic or glam, styling an outfit correctly is the key to finishing off the perfect look. With the right hair and accessories you can showcase your personal style, highlight assets and camouflage flaws while creating tons of totally different looks with the same outfit. But with the wrong styling you can also lose the perfect look and everything you had right can quickly turn into a wrong.
With all the advice we have coming in on how to accessorize, it can be hard for the everyday woman to know what's truly stylish and tasteful. Some Fashionistas believe less is more, while others prefer to layer on the bangles. One of our most reliable style icons, Coco Chanel, said that before leaving the house a lady should stop, look in the mirror and remove one piece of jewelry. For the majority of Fashionistas this advice rings true. Less is usually more when deciding between necklaces, earrings, bulky bracelets and rings all heaped on at one time.
But don’t fret; there are a few steps to picking out the perfect accessories that will keep you on the right track. It’s important to pay attention to colors. If you’re wearing a lot of neutrals or blacks try adding in some color with a belt or scarf. When it comes to jewelry choose a body part and stick with it—if you pick earrings, leave your neck bare. This is important for maintaining a balanced look. Finally, accessorize for your body. This means using simple accessories for areas you may not want to accentuate and bright statement pieces for areas you do.
I prefer to stick with a couple traditional pieces that I can wear everyday; in my personal opinion simple always makes more of a statement. So, it goes without saying that I loved the way this Fashionista styled her look. The way she has her hair tied up in a bun draws your eye into the main focus of the outfit, a statement necklace that brings the whole look together effortlessly. There was no need for chunky bangles or heavy earrings here.
Many of us forget that finding the perfect accessories can be just as important as finding the perfect dress. So don’t neglect your look, take a couple of these steps and use them on your next day out!
