I love accessories! They do a fine job of hyping a bland outfit + they can help achieve any look you want. Like I always say, if you can’t readily afford a total wardrobe change, splurge on accessories!
A lot of people complain they need new clothes. But when you look closely, you realize they have not fully utilized or maximized what they have.
Let’s keep in mind that sometimes you gotta keep the accessories minimal if you've got so much going on (a busy outfit altogether). A person’s personality is usually evident in the type of accessories they are drawn to. Let’s look at a few ways to instantly glam up your outfit.
Apart from the fact that they help cinch in your waist or define it, they also add extra detail. Trust me, a nice belt can take your outfit from here to up there. Yeah, I mean up there!! From bold, patterned, metallic, textured to colorful ones…you might wanna explore your options.
How you look from head to toe is a complete package. Hence, everything must sum up to give a pleasing effect. Your hair also counts. Be versatile in your choice of hairstyles. Play with makeup to suit the rest of your outfit. From bold lippies to well combined eyeshadows..sometimes you gotta let the hair and makeup speak and leave every other thing quiet.
This is definitely my go-to way of spicing up most of my outfits. Wearing bold accessories is another way to add interest to drab clothing pieces. Add a colorful necklace, chunky bracelet or dangling earrings. Brooches, bold rings, head chains work too.
Colorful , unique shoes or bold colored bag/purse? Why not…?
Whether you choose to wear heels, flats, sneakers or combat boots, make sure that your footwear is unique and has some sort of interest to it. Details (zippers, cut outs, lace, buttons etc) on shoes can make things more interesting. Footwear with eye catching colors is also something to look into.
Hats? Of course…
Fedoras, bowler, beanies, newsboy caps, wide brim hats… the possibilities are endless. Hats can act as a great form of expression, and they are a great way to show off some personality.
Wearing a hat to complement your outfit can illustrate that you are fun and flirty and that you are not afraid to play with your style. Attain a vintage, rocker look with a bowler hat or simply wear a fedora with a maxi.
Scarves? Well yeahhh…
In whichever way you choose to use them or style them, they simply make a difference. Use them as a headwrap or neckwrap. There are different ways to style them. Headwraps are not only for bad hair days. They can also help finish up your look.
It doesn’t necessarily have to be with the use of accessorizes. It could be as simple as a knot, half tuck (like in the picture below), a shirt tied around your waist and more.
