Accessories can really help to elevate an outfit. Whether you are wanting to go for something casual or looking for an outfit with more glamour, you should always want to make the most of your look. To do this, pick out the best additional items that will set your aesthetic on fire. However you see yourself, and whatever image you want to present, you will find that adding in a few pieces to your look will bring out whatever message you want to convey. Here are a few simple ways you can create a style that works for you using accessories.
Picking The Right Jewelry
When it comes to jewelry, only you will know your taste. What one person may love, another person may find tacky. But, whatever your style, there are ways that you can use jewelry to take your outfit to a whole new level. Of course, you can stop by Claires or Five and Below, if you’re on a tight budget, but don’t be afraid to try out independent jewelry designers, like Moi! Yes, I have started my very own jewelry line – Ode To Belle! All of my pieces are handcrafted with natural stones. I am working on getting the website up and running, but for now, you can check out my Etsy Shop!
I don’t want to just plug myself, there are a great deal of other independent jewelry designers on Etsy that have beautiful pieces for every style. Also, if you’re a fan of the alternative look and want to give yourself some edge, some simple stone plugs in your ears can look edgy and unconventional. There are pieces out there for everyone!
Wearing Scarves To Full Effect
If your outfit is looking a bit plain, why not throw some color around your neck with a scarf? Picking something with a pattern or color that contrasts everything else that you are wearing will make an impact. Don’t be afraid to do other things with your scarves. Yes, they are designed for your neck, but you could use them around your waist, draped off your handbag, or even in your hair. Adding a bright flash of color can make you really stand out from the crowd. And how you choose to tie the scarf can have an effect too.
Belts Can Do So Much
A belt can do much more than hold your pants up. These days belts are used to make a statement. You could wear a belt over a dress, skirt, or even over a blazer, cardigan, or denim jacket. In my opinion, it is best to wear it as a way to cinch in the waist and bring attention to the curves. One of the most important things to think about when it comes to wearing a belt is the width of the belt. Will it fit your belt loops or will it look too bulky if you use it at the waist? Also, don’t be afraid to make it your statement piece by using it as a pop of color or a different texture to add dimension to your look.
