After having found the perfect outfit for your special occasion, it’s important to complement it with just the right accessories. It is well known that accessories can make or break an outfit and this can make the task of finding the perfect accessories daunting. Worry not! Simply, apply our top three rules when looking for accessories to achieve your perfect look
2. Classy yet functional
Looking good at a special occasion is one thing; being able to enjoy yourself is another. Keep in mind your role at the function and what you intend on doing. If you are going to be running around after the bride the whole day it may be best to avoid chunky jewellery that can weigh you down. Wanting to accessorise for your 21st birthday? Add a crown to your look to make it clear to your guests just whose night it really is.
2. Proportions, proportions, proportions!
It is important to keep your height and size in mind when adding any accessory. If you have a short neck, layered necklaces will just make it look shorter. Opt for a thin long necklace instead. This will help elongate your neck. Or omit the necklace entirely and instead throw on a pair of statement, chunky earrings. Pair this with a cuff bracelet and high heels and your outfit is complete. Similarly if your have a longer neck, a layered necklace is your best friend. Complement it with beautiful stud earrings and a dainty bracelet and your are set.
3. Less is more
“Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.”― Coco Chanel
It’s easy to get carried away when dolling yourself up. It feels great to be able to put on all the beautiful items you have collected over the years. But remember, just like the saying, “Don’t spend it all in one place.” Don’t wear all your good accessories to one event. During this pandemic we are all guilty of sitting on the couch, online shopping the entire day. When the opportunity does arise to attend a function remember not to over do it. Wearing a sparkly sequins dress? No necklace needed, just a beautiful pair of earrings and thin bracelet.
I wont include this as a rule because one day we will beat this pandemic, however for now it is important to mention when accessorising any outfit: Match your mask to your outfit, not your accessories. Think of your mask as an extension of the outfit you are wearing rather than an accessory. This way your mask will blend in rather than stand out.
Keeping this in mind, happy accessorising!!
