We all know that choosing the right outfit can transform the way that you feel on any given day. When you're wearing clothes that help you to look great, you start to feel amazing too, gaining that boost of confidence that you need to accomplish amazing things in your day-to-day life.
However, there's more to choosing the ideal look than finding the clothes that fit your personal sense of style. An incredible set of accessories can breathe new life into an ensemble and take your average everyday clothes to the next level.
3 Things to Consider When Choosing your Accessories
So, how do you make sure that you're choosing the accessories that are really going to transform your outfit? Over time, you'll get a sense for what works for your personal sense of style the more you experiment with your clothes and look. However, to begin with, all you need to do is focus on three distinct things:
- Colour: The most important factor in adding a "wow" element to your look, is getting the colours right. You don't want to use the same colours throughout your entire outfit. For instance, if you're wearing a bold or dark colour like black, then you'll want to add some contrast to the look with pastel shades or brighter colours that pop. Learn the basics of primary and secondary colours before you start mixing and matching.
- Scale: Scale in the accessories world refers to the size of the items that you're wearing. If you're wearing a dress that has a lot of frills and ruffles, then you'll need to keep your accessories quite simple and basic, otherwise you'll be pulling the eye in too many different directions at once. On the other hand, if you're wearing a very simple outfit, you can afford to go a little bigger with your accessories.
- Style: Finally, it's all about finding your own personal sense of style. What looks amazing to you might not appeal to someone else. Experiment with different trends like boho chic and glamour girl until you find something that speaks to you.
