Style is a combination of so many components that you can work it in whatever way you want. But when you are turning your attention to accessories, it’s about making sure that each accessory is one part of the complete picture. Whether it’s hair accessories or handbags, or even making sure that your makeup highlights your attributes properly, the art of choosing the right accessories is not as easy as you think. With this in mind, what does it take to choose the right accessories?

Pick a Signature Accessory

The first thing to state is that signature accessories make you feel great and will work with multiple outfits. Accessory options can be overwhelming, but this is why you need to start with one item that you have complete faith in. A watch is such a simple accessory but can communicate so much, especially when you look at luxury brands. You can very easily shop luxury women’s watches and find the right style for you. When you’re ready to add more accessories, you can create balance by choosing one statement piece which dominates your look. You can either do this in terms of colour or size, but then you can start to add more subtle additions. 

Think About What What Your Fashion Choices Demand

Accessories provide accentuation. A simple outfit that is bereft of colour doesn’t look great, but using accessories to add some colour or patterns to a style can make your look far more elevated. Accessories are fantastic in this way. And when you start to think about the outfit choices and what the right accessory could do to it, you can use accessories to change the entire feel of something that you wear on many different occasions. For example, the classic little black dress is perfect for work when you pair them up with flats and a blazer. But you can then change into a pair of letters and add some bling earrings for a cocktail party or a night out. The right accessories will automatically transform the feel of one simple item of clothing.

Don’t Worry About Getting It Perfect

You may agonize over your accessories, and think that the accessories have to match. But it’s important to remember that when you choose accessories that go together, they may not scream fashionable. If you feel that you are going too far with your accessory choices, start simple. And one colourful accessory to your neutral outfit. But then get inspiration by bold combinations of colour. You can look at any boards on Pinterest for inspiration, or you can use a colour wheel. A very simple thing, but it can show you how to make your look perfectly controlled without going over the top.

Accessories are fantastic for adding extra depth to your style. They are the finishing touches, but when you feel that your style needs a shakeup, or you don’t know where to begin, focus on these three rules, and we can guarantee you won’t go far wrong!

  1. Great post Stella. Some great ideas in there. Being a woman who is whimsical (I was told recently) and loves colour i tend to keep accessories minimal and simple. Great ideas though for the occasions I have to dress more conservative
