Accessories are just as important as any part of an outfit. However knowing which accessories to pair with your favorite top and new jeans isn’t always easy. You don’t want to overdo it, but at the same time an accessory-less outfit just looks, well, bland. It’s overwhelming stuff, isn’t it? Well, have no fear, Affordable Scarves is here with tips for choosing the perfect accessories for any look.
Three’s a Crowd. The general rule when accessorizing, is to wear no more than two pieces of jewelry at a time. Those that are exempt from this rule are rings (as long as there are no more than two per hand) and stud earrings.
One Is Silver and the Other’s Gold. There are instances where contrasting metals work well together but as a general rule you will appear more put together if you stick with just one. Keep in mind metal details on shoes and handbags when deciding on silver or gold for the day.
Dirty Pop! Add color to a monotone or neutral outfit with a bright colored scarf or belt. It’s a great way to add life to a black dress or white blouse.
Patterned Pat. You can and should mix patterns, just be careful when doing so. There are a few guidelines to follow to avoid looking like a little girl playing dress-up. First start with a base color that appears in all of the prints you choose. Secondly, choose patterns that will balance each other out, a large heavy, geometric print with a light floral scarf for example.
Now that you’ve got the basics down, go mix and match and have some fun!
