You’ve probably had one of those days where you stand in front of your closet just staring, wondering what to wear. When we’re sullen, we tend to pick clothes that reflect our miserable attitude. And that can leave us feeling even worse than before.
But sometimes, it has nothing to do with our moods. We just can’t decide what to wear. And this is where a few go-to accessories come in handy. By adding the right accessories to your outfit, you can brighten up what would have been a drab look and step out looking fabulous.
Use accessories to mask the moody undertones of your emotions and they’ll make you look brighter than you feel. Who knows? The positive reactions to your fierce look may lift your spirits soon enough and before you know it, you’ll have forgotten what had brought on the grouchiness in the first place.
Here are 9 top accessories that will keep you looking fabulous all year long.
Statement jewelry is the most sophisticated type of jewelry you can invest in. It’s classy, stylish, and can dress up any outfit. Below are the three top statement jewelry you should have.
Make your statement earrings pop by picking a pair in a good color. The earrings will draw attention to your face and hair and are a great way to get people to notice your new hairstyle. You can also use them to enhance the top you’re wearing or draw attention away from it.
Pick a statement necklace that will add some excitement to a plain outfit. Because the neckpiece will draw the eye upwards towards the neck area, you want to avoid pairing it with dresses or tops that have too much going on at the bust area. Pick dresses or blouses with a simple design so that your necklace stands out more.
Another way to add an interesting twist to a plain outfit is by adding a statement bracelet. Statement bracelets command attention in a way that regular bracelets won’t. They come in a wide range of designs and types, from chain links to studded pieces and ones covered in gems.
If your outfit is busy, meaning it’s extensively patterned or multicolored, choose a statement bracelet without any adornments. If your outfit is basic and in monotone, a colorful statement bracelet will be perfect.
You can never go wrong with silver and gold statement bracelets. These two classic jewelry tones work well with all types and colors of outfits.
Other must-have earrings you need are a pair or two of pearl earrings and everyday studs. You can wear these two types of earrings on any day and with any outfit. On days when you feel like you didn’t coordinate your outfit well, adding any of these pairs will instantly transform how you look.
Silk scarves join the list of classiest clothing accessories. They add a refined touch to any outfit and are an ideal way to dress up a plain outfit.
You can have as many silk scarves as you can find. Keep them colorful too, although it’s also a good idea to have one or two in neutral colors.
For the best look, pair your neutral-colored outfits with bright silk scarves. Use plain scarves with patterned outfits and plain scarves with plain outfits.
Shawls are not only stylish, but functional too. You can use them in a number of ways, most notably as a good old shawl, as a scarf, and as a blanket.
Buy them in bright colors that complement most of the clothes in your wardrobe. Have shawls of different sizes so you can play around with styling and try out new ways of tying them around the neck.
Buy a classic handbag that is neither too big nor too small. G o for a satchel as it is stylish and practical. Check that it has a good design and is adorned with gold or metallic clips for an extra stylish look.
Keep the color of your signature handbag neutral so that it matches most of your outfits. However, if you have many outfits in the same color, you can choose a handbag of a similar color for seamless matching.
A handbag that beautifully contrasts with your outfit also looks great. Consider this too when looking for an everyday handbag.
You need at least one good quality belt that you can rely on whenever you need to tuck in your blouses. A good belt will hold your trousers in place while making your style pop.
Many people like to match their belts to their shoes. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it can be a little limiting.
A better consideration to make when choosing a belt is to ensure that it matches with most of your clothes. Good color choices for belts are brown, black, grey, tan, gold, silver, cream, and white. For a playful look, you can also have a few belts in red, green, bright blue and other similar fun colors.
Sunglasses are timeless accessories that never get old and never look out of place. A signature pair of sunglasses instantly upgrades your look to one that says you’re stylish, bold and trendy. Choose sunglasses in a shape that complements the shape of your face. Remember the sunglasses will frame your face and are one of the first things people notice when they see you. Make sure they’re flattering.
Consider also the color of the frame and shade of the glasses. Sunglasses with dark frames – think gold, grey, and black – and brown to black glass shades are the best options as you can pair them with any outfit.
