I’ve always been a big fan of accessories. You can make a simple outfit really stand out with the right pair of earrings or an adorable bag. There are heaps of options out there and it can be a bit overwhelming to know what to choose. I’ve put together a step-by-step guide to choosing the right accessories for a particular occasion or outfit so you can be confident and feel amazing!
Head to toe
I usually do a quick scan from head to toe when thinking about what accessories to add:
Obviously, you don’t need to wear all of the above. Less is more. But, you can think about the options before narrowing it down! My rule of thumb is to choose 2-5 accessories. For example, a straw hat, sunglasses, crochet bag & sandals.
Determine your color palette based on your outfit. If you have a neutral outfit you could go monochromatic or a pop of color with your accessories. Personally, I love a neutral outfit with a bright pair of earrings or patterned shoes. All white/cream is trending right now. Keep in my mind the season and the vibe of the place you’re going to.
What vibe is your outfit giving off? If you have a hippie-style outfit then try to match your accessories with the same aesthetic. There is some overlap but be careful not to put two totally different styles together. For example a boho vest and flares with business casual loafers.
Be playful and enjoy trying new things. Accessories are a great way to express yourself & show off your fantastic personality. It’s also easier to pull off wild accessories because you can pair them with a simple outfit. I hope these simple steps will help you feel like a million bucks!
