Accessories can make a simple outfit better in seconds. Today's post includes three simple tips when it comes to accessorizing any look.
Wear a bold accessory with simple clothing
Simple, understated clothing can be amplified when you add a bold accessory. When you add a necklace or statement piece to a neutral outfit, it gives you the opportunity to advance your look. An advantage of wearing neutral colors means your accessories can be the pop of color in your outfit.
Wear an accessory that brings out a color in your outfit
Playing up a color makes your look appear more put together. If your outfit has more than one color in it, choose a color and wear an accessory that emphasizes that hue. Since my shorts were a light, pale green I paired my seashell necklace with the outfit. The greens and teals in the necklace play off of the shorts and tie the look together.
Your makeup can be an accessory too
You don't always need to wear a statement piece or excessive amounts of jewelry. Instead, you can play up your makeup. Let that be the accessory! Personally, I am infatuated with highlighting my cheekbones and nose so that is one way I tend to "accessorize" my look. Other ideas could be wearing false eyelashes, using a bright lip color, or dramatic eye makeup.
