Perfect Accessories

Cocktail Party

So, you’ve got on a black and white dress and white shoes…do you wear earrings? A necklace? Bracelets? This list will help you decide great ways to accessorize your outfits. Think about what you’re wearing. If it’s busy already, keep accessories limited and simple. If it’s plain, you’ve got more freedom to accessorize, but don’t go overboard!
Keep this in mind that  less is more. A ring and matching bracelet make a nice set. A matching bracelet and necklace make a great combination. But two rings, a bracelet on each arm and three necklaces? Not so much.

Choose one accessory as a focal point. For example, you can wear big, glamorous earrings, but then if you wear a necklace, it needs to be subtle. Similarly, you can choose a shiny necklace, but then your earrings should be small and should not compete for attention.

Earrings and Necklaces

Stick to one style of jewelry. If you want to accessorize with yellow gold, stick with that. The same goes for white gold. Mixing and matching can get messy.

If you’re carrying a purse, make sure it looks good with your outfit. A metallic silver purse may be a gorgeous accessory for a black dress, but with a metallic dress, you may start looking like an over-accessorized mess.

Silver purseDon’t be afraid to take fashion risks. A beaded necklace can be a fantastic accessory with a simple black top and jeans. Shiny earrings can spice up a simple dress. If you like it, and it looks good with your outfit, go for it!

Look at yourself in the mirror before going out. Do your accessories create a cohesive look, or do they look mismatched? If they look mismatched, take them off and try again.
