It is never easy to accessorize. You are probably always asking yourself what colors go with what, what materials should you use, and, of course, that can all be stressful. However, you will never be a “fashion no-no” once you have read this list of tips for accessorizing:

1. Do not wear more than 3 or 4 large accessories at a time

Of course, it is possible to mix big accessories, like bracelets and necklaces together, but you should not wear more than 3 or 4 of them. Keep in mind that they should match each other when it comes to the style, color, and the materials the jewelry is made from.

2. Do not try to hide a large collar under a bulky scarf

If your jacket or coat has a large collar, you do not need to add a large scarf to your outfit. Instead, you could wear a kerchief around your neck and it should definitely be underneath the outer layer of your clothes.

3. Only use a full set of jewelry if the pieces are small

Some people consider wearing earring, bracelets, beads, and rings from one set tasteless. However, this idea is only partly true, since it will depend on the size of each accessory. If they are big, it might seem like you over accessorized, especially if you are wearing an evening gown. But, if the jewelry pieces are small in size, wearing them together can make you look more elegant.

4. Forget about the rule that says that your handbag needs to match the color of your shoes

First of all, we all know how difficult it can be to choose a bag or shoes. But, choosing a bag that matches your shoes is not really necessary. If your shoes are brightly colored, you should consider buying a bag that is in a contrasting light tone. On the other hand, if your shoes are darker, buy a tote that will make you stand out from the crowd.

5. You should set your priorities – either choose bright clothes or eye-catching accessories

When working on your outfit, try to figure out what effect you want to achieve and then apply the right emphasis on the outfit. You can either make your clothes, makeup, or jewelry eye-catching, but you should most definitely try and avoid getting the same effect for all three at the same time. As you know, combining puffy collar on a shirt with big, diamond earring just look totally absurd.

6. Your wrists should never be naked

Wearing multiple bracelets can be a stylish and fashionable statement. You could buy a set of multiple bracelets or you could get creative and look at what you already have in your jewelry box. Also, do not forget about watches. For a more elegant, casual, and professional look, you should at least have two watches to go with your outfits.

7. Keep in mind that large rings are not for everyone

Thicker rings do not look good on short fingers. Thinner rings will visually increase the length of your fingers, hence you should remember this when buying new rings.

8. Avoid wearing black shoes if your outfit has a pastel tone

Dark shoes will not really work with pastel outfits. If you are wearing clothes that have pastel tones, try choosing footwear that has a lighter shade or you could even choose shoes that are flesh colored.


With these tips, you can always make sure that you will be fashionable, stand out from the crowd, and eye-catching at all times.
