Accessories 101:
5 Fashion Tips to Flawlessly Accessorize Any Outfit


You may know how to properly outfit your body to flatter your best features and body type but you still might not feel ďput togetherĒ if you skip out on accessories. After all, an outfit is just an outfit without the right accessories! If you want to look like the chic ladies you admire, but arenít sure where to begin, use these tips to help you learn how to accessorize properly.

#1. Jewelry Is Not the Only Accessory

Sure, jewelry is an easy way to use accessories to create the look you want. However, itís not the only area of accessories you should consider trying. You can completely change the vibe of clothing by using the power of a handbag or shoes. Think about it. If youíre wearing jeans, sporting tennis shoes and carrying a simple cloth purse, your look will be totally casual. However, if you take those same jeans and add fashion forward high heels and a crocodile skin designer handbag, your look totally changes.

#2. Donít Over Do it on the Accessories

The worst way to accessorize is to completely overdo it. While the current trends encourage a multitude of bangles, layer upon layer of necklaces and dangling earrings, itís important to not go overboard. If you like accessorizing with the trendy layers of jewelry, be sure you stick with one main layering area. For example, never wear twenty bangles along with six necklaces. Choose either the necklaces or the bracelets and skip wearing bold jewelry on any other area of your body while experimenting with this specific trend. I good rule of thumb is to accessorize all youíd like and then before going out, remove at least one item. This will always keep you from overdoing it and help you avoid looking trashy!

#3. Inexpensive Jewelry Saves The Day Ė No One Will Know

While itís not everything, there is great ease in accessorizing with jewelry. You can start with a blank canvas, like your favorite Little Black Dress, and make it into anything you want, by adding a trendy earring, belt or bracelet. Lots of women hesitate to use jewelry as their main accessories because itís so expensive. However, even celebrities like Jennifer Lopez wear fake jewels so donít be shy about using faux gold, silver or jewels to dress up your outfit. Just be sure you buy higher quality faux jewelry if you want it to last a while. The really cheap stuff usually tarnishes quickly. You can find very inexpensive items at stores like Claireís or Forever 21.

#4. Use Your Jacket

Most fashion experts agree an outfit is not usually complete without a jacket. Even in the warmest months, they recommend you wear a jacket, sweater or scarf of some sort to complete your look. So, be brave and experiment with what looks best on you. Remember, jackets that highlight the smallest part of your waist are always a great choice for any body type.

#5. All The Fashion Extras To Try

If youíre one of the ladies who like to take their style to the next level, you might be interested in accessorizing with a special hat or trendy glasses. Hats and glasses can be excellent ways to bring your personality into your attire. Just be careful if youíre wearing a bold hat or trendy glasses to allow the piece you choose to be highlighted and never drown it out or try to allow another accessory to compete for the attention it deserves.
