Accessorising is the most important step to create a look. While some looks are so easy to style, others may be too tricky to understand. There should be a guide to get the best of every look by accessorising it at the best. That’s exactly what we have brought to you today.
4 simple accessorising tips every girl should know are:
- Choosing the right earrings for your look.
- Matching the accessories together.
- Match the colour and materials with skin tones.
- Accessorise according to the outfits.
The first step is to choose the right earrings.
Now choosing earrings is primarily done by determining what shape your face is and then the earrings that look the best on that face shape. Getting the right earrings for your face shape is just as important as accessorising any look.
If you don’t know what shape your face is, you can watch this video on our channel and find out your face shape in a few minutes.
Which one- long or short?
Longer faces need round and arched designed earrings that are shorter in length and mostly end above your chin length. While shorter faces need danglers that reach below the chin to give an extended effect to your look.
It can even depend on the kind of outfit you are wearing, like an off-shoulder or strapless dress has a wide area for decoration, hence statement long earrings can really do wonders for that look.
Which one-delicate or bold?
Earrings can enhance as well as worsen the look of your face just by choosing them wrong. For women who have strong facial features and braider faces, bold statement earrings are the right kind. While women with small faces and delicate facial features should go for small and dainty earring designs to accentuate their facial features more.
Matching the accessories together.
Matching different accessories is another craft that is not everybody’s cup of tea. The key is to keep it less crowded. Starting with the face, if you are to wear a head accessory like a hat or cap or tiara anything, go for earrings that are a subtle addition.
When wearing a statement necklace again go easy on the earring type and design, or just go with a statement earring and a tiara and enjoy that princess look.
When accessorising your hand, layering a few brackets for a statement effect is advisable, then again do not wear any rings it will just fight for attention. If you are wearing rings and want to keep it at that then maybe just add a cuff or a watch and leave it at that.
Match the colour and materials with skin tones.
While looking for the right accessory, another thing to keep in mind is your skin tone and the colours that will suit it the best. This one follows the “like dissolves like” principle. Warmer skin tones should wear colours that fall on the warm side of the spectrum.
Gold is one of the materials that suits warm skin colours too. While women with cool skin tones must go with colours on the collier side of the colour spectrum, silver is the go-to material for cool skin tones.
As for the ones who have neutral skin tone can basically go with both the types of colours and materials. They may have an inclination towards one side when styling so this will give them the exact colours their skin prefers.
Accessorise according to the outfits.
Accessorising comprises almost half of the outfit you wear. Hence, it is important to see to it that your outfit is in harmony with your accessory and not fighting for attention. Outfits which are too detailed and full of prints and decorative works look better with dainty and delicate accessories like studs, chains and hoops.
For outfits which are basic and simple and do not have a lot going on like a monochrome or tee-jean look, can look great with statement accessories. This will provide the whole look a stronger visual presence and something to catch eyes to.
Traditional looks often require statement jewellery to be paired with an embroidered outfit, going for a matching colour to the outfit can really create the balance for you. So, the key here is to create a balanced look.
These are 4 simple accessorising tips for you to style any look for yours. Just keep these things in mind, and maybe you will be the next fashionista among your peers.
