When you think about accessorizing your outfit, you need to take some steps in order to match everything and make sure that it looks good together. You have to consider a lot of things like colors, style, textures, and the event or place that you will go to. With the right accessories, you could bring an old outfit to life or make an outfit look completely different and new. There are many accessories to choose from. You can use belts, scarves, and jewelry.
First, look at the color of you outfit. Is it very colorful? Is it neutral? What color scheme are you using? Warm colors are those that remind you of heat such as reds, oranges, and pinks. Cool colors are those that make you think of cold such as blues, violet, and green.
If you are wearing neutral colors, you can wear any color of accessories. You can have rainbow colors if you want. With a neutral brown outfit, you could use green or yellow to compliment. With a neutral tan outfit, you could use pink accessories.
If you are wearing a warm colored outfit, you can use cool colors for your accessories. For example, an all pink outfit could be complimented with blue-violet or green accessories. If you are wearing cool colors, you can use warm colors as accessories. For example, a blue shirt with red or orange accessories.
If jewelry is your chosen accessory, do not over accessorize. When you over accessorize, it is very obvious. Focus on one area of your body. For example, if you want to wear a gaudy necklace, it is best not to also wear huge earrings.
You can choose to have one big piece of jewelry and the rest can be smaller, less noticeable pieces. For example, if you wear a big necklace, then you could wear studs for earrings and a small bracelet. Another example of over accessorizing would be to wear huge earrings and a hat at the same time. Only have one big accessory at a time.
If you choose a belt or a scarf, you can also have a big accessory at the top of your body along with it. Always use your best judgement and when all else fails, ask for someones opinion about the accessories and outfit.
You should also consider the event that you will be attending. Is it a high class event? Instead of wearing plastic jewelry, try wearing something like pearls that will look more “real”. You can buy jewelry that looks expensive without it actually being expensive.
If you are going out with friends, it is okay to wear normal accessories. These are the kind that don’t look so expensive, but they are more cute and stylish. You will know when you look in the mirror if you have over done it. It is really up to you what you would like to wear, but these guidelines can really help you if you are confused about matching colors.
