Fashion is power, and accessories can help to achieve your ultimate look. Ever wonder what type of accessories would compliment your overall look? Well, there are many concepts that you have to know when choosing the best type of accessory.  But once you know exactly what to look for, accessorizing eventually becomes simple! Here are some steps into finding your accessorizing forte.

Selecting the Right Outfit

What you wear will help determine what accessories to use. If you are wearing an outfit with heavy layers, then most of your accessories won’t be seen. That is why you need to look for areas where accessories will compliment the outfit. For example, if you are wearing too many layers of clothing, you can probably accessorize your ears and your hair.

Coordinate Colors

An important detail to look out for is color schemes — not every accessory will fit with your outfit choice. An accessory might be to dull in color or might be too bright. The best thing to do is to balance out the color. If your outfit is mainly red with a few splashes of yellow, then you can add a few yellow accessories so it can compliment the red. If you were to chose a red accessory, that would be a little too much since you are already mainly wearing red. Accessories are made to give your outfit that little bit of spice, so it is best to use accessories that compliment your main look.

Daily Activity
It’s always a good idea to plan out your accessories with your schedule. If you are cooking, then wearing a lot of rings or bracelets may not be a good idea. Once you know your plans, you’ll automatically be able to narrow down what accessories you can and can’t use.  Wearing appropriate jewelry will make you feel more comfortable. If you want to cook with bracelets because you are used to it and are more comfortable wearing them, then go for it! It’s all about your comfort level — choose comfort over beauty, chicas!

Decluter Your Body

Accessories come in all different sizes and colors, but it doesn’t mean that you have to wear your entire jewelry box.  If you are planing on wearing a couple of small accessories, then maybe 4 pieces of jewelry should be enough. If you are wearing something big and flashy, then remember that just one is usually enough. Some chicas like to combine different sizes of jewelry, which is fine, but listen to yourself. A girl usually knows when it is too much because they’ll see AND feel it.

 

These are basic Do’s and Don’ts, but don’t let it stop you from experimenting with your style. There are so many accessories in this world, so most likely you’ll find the perfect accessories for you.  Accessorizing is also supposed to be fun so don’t try to take it too seriously — have fun!
