The Golden Rules Of Accessorizing

Have you ever noticed how certain women always seem to look good, even when they are wearing the simplest of outfits? There's something about their look that catches the eye, without the aid of designer fashion or the help of a stylist. There's no big secret to what they have done. It's quite simple, really. They have mastered the art of accessorizing.
So, the next time you look in your wardrobe and sigh at the drab and basic outfits you have to choose from, remember that you can accessorize too. You can elevate the way you look in some very simple ways, no matter your budget. However, there are some rules you need to follow to make this work.

1. Think about your personal style. What you buy is up to you, but remember that as well as looking good to others, you want to feel good in yourself.  If you're not comfortable wearing huge, dangly earrings, for example, then don't. It's about wearing something that makes you feel happy.  Accessorizing is supposed to boost your confidence, but the opposite can be true when you are wearing something that doesn't really suit who you are as a person.

2. Don't overdo it. One statement piece is fine. Whether you wear a ring adorned with VVS Diamonds or a long pearl necklace, choose the item that you want people to notice. These items will draw attention to you in the right way, whereas overdoing it on the accessories will have the opposite effect. Your appearance will be chaotic and cluttered, and if you're striding around with dangly bracelets, large earrings, and layered necklaces on your person, you're going to feel quite unbalanced too. Sometimes, less is more!

3. Choose accessories that flatter your body shape. Worn in the right way, the accessories you wear can compliment the outfits you are wearing, and help you flaunt those parts of your body that you are keen on showing off. A waist belt can emphasize your curves. A long necklace can draw attention to your breasts. And even the right shape bag can make a difference when you buy something that fits with your appearance.

4. Add balance. If you're wearing something over the top, such as a spangly sequinned dress, you want to go easy on your accessories, perhaps by wearing something subtle so you don't dazzle any onlookers. If you're wearing something basic, then the bolder you can be with your accessory choices, perhaps with a sparkly pendant necklace or a few shiny bracelets across your arms. Balancing is a fine art, but a look in the mirror or an opinion of a close friend will let you know if you have gone too far (or not far enough).
5. Mix and match. You don't always need to play it safe. True, you can make a fashion faux pas if you wear too many different colors and materials, but then again, you may create an amazing looking combo. Provided everything goes together seamlessly, and without appearing too jarring, you may create a great new style. In short, experiment!

Follow these simple rules and you will turn more than a few heads the next time you're out and about. Let us know what you think, and if you have any of your own ideas, then be sure to let us know.
