Every outfit deserves those finishing touches that round off the finesse and elegance of your appearance. The understated look may be back for this season, but that doesn’t mean you need to throw away your love for accessories. Accessories can make or break a great outfit. But if you’re wondering what on earth will work with this season’s fashion haul, then try some of these tips to bring some flare back to your favorites:
The chains may be shorter and less chunky, but necklaces are still considered one of the most elegant pieces of jewelry you can wear. They can sit on your collar bone to help lengthen your neck. Or maybe they sit delicately on your chest to accentuate your neckline. It’s not all about the diamonds this season. Instead, look for accent colors, especially for your little black dress.
You can choose precious gems like green emeralds or red rubies to pack a punch. Or you might prefer something mesmerizing and elegant like Australian Opals. The best thing about them is you can customize your opal into jewelry designs of your own choosing. Not only will your opal be completely unique to you, but your necklace pendant will have never been seen anywhere. Choose matching earrings that aren’t oversized, but instead, frame your cheekbones beautifully.
Cinching the midriff has fallen out of favor a little lately, but the popularity of the wide belt for women is booming once more. The width you choose will depend on the space between the top of your hip bone and the bottom of your rib. You want something that falls short of this, creating an hourglass silhouette for your figure. Other belts for the season include the plaited leather rope for summer dresses and the glossy, vibrant color belt for office wear.
The belts you choose may be down to taste. Some women find them uncomfortable or restricting. If you’re looking for ways to create a feminine shape from a baggy or loose fitting top or dress, try a cotton scarf. These are popular in many different patterns right now. They can look girly, country or just cute and casual.
When it’s date night, you want to travel light, but you need all your favorite cosmetics and date night essentials with you. Your purse is going to start feeling the strain if you can’t pack light! Clutches are back for accessorizing evening wear. This can make space even more limited. Look for travel sizes of tissues, shadow pallets and hair tamers.
Your handbag could be quite a show piece for this season. Look for colors, and details that will stand out in a crowd. Be wary of cheap glitter finishes that will just make a mess of your hands and your favorite cocktail dress. Instead, pick up designs that catch the light but remain elegant all night long.
Accessorizing your outfit will always be a matter of taste, but it also gives you a chance to put your stamp on your fashion choices. What might be just another little black dress could become the stage for showing off that incredible piece of custom jewelry. Love your look.
