Accessory Style Advice!

Hi Beauties! 
Happy Holidays! It's me again and I'm here to talk all things fabulous! Today's topic is all about ACCESSORIES!! 

I have to admit that I rely heavily on accessories. Accessories are to your outfit what make-up is to your face. They can take your outfit from okay to WOW! Get it girl! (LOL)
From earrings, to watches and bracelets to scarves, the right accessories will turn your outfit up a notch.

My first example is a simple outfit. I wore a sweatshirt, jeans and sneakers. Look how the accessories (necklace, glasses, watch and bracelet) turned a simple look into WOW! 

The next example is a thrifted sweater. Notice it has some old grandma pearls on it. (LOL) But with this statement necklace, it all came together wonderfully. 

Here's an example of how you can wear one outfit and change the accessories for the appropriate occasion:

Say you're going to be hanging with your girls for lunch and a night on the town but you won't have time to change. With this same outfit you could wear sneakers in the daytime, with the appropriate jewelry, and take that same outfit and roll into a night on the town! 
It's all about pairing the right accessories for the occasion!
(sooo easy, right?!)

To me accessories are just as important as what you're wearing. They also help define your personal style. You may see an accessory by itself and think it won't make that much of an impact but paired with the right outfit and other accessories, it can and will produce a solidified outfit. 

What do you guys think about accessories? Do you accessorize any or do you think it's just a waste of time? Too much? Not enough? Let me know! Comment below!

Educate. Inspire. Transform.

  1. i don't usually take care of me and my style enought to think of that but i would prefer simple elegant accessory i thinl and i will try to use them for new year eve

    1. Don't underestimate the wow factor simple elegant accessories can bring to an outfit. The accessories don't have to be over the top to step up the hotness of an outfit. Good luck!

  2. I agree with you. Accessories can make a simple outfit look fabulous. I'm like miki above, I prefer simple elegant accessories.

    1. It depends on my mood but simple and elegant can be awesome.

  3. I love accessories but I'm not creative with them - I love your "day to night" example. I would never think to pair leopard print with red and I can see that they look awesome together! I collect vintage costume jewelry, which I wear, but haven't found a way to match it to clothing that makes it fresh and "2014." But I'm trying :-)

    1. I'm real easy with the pairing of print and colors, so I have no problem with taking chances and seeing how it goes. Leopard can go pretty well with any color really, it just depends on how you put the two together. Personal style, I've found, is a bunch of trial and error. LOL! Sometimes you can put stuff together and go OH! That's cute! :-) Good luck on Making it Fresh for 2014!

  4. I love your accessories, as well as your beautiful and creative pairing with your clothing. I, too, am a firm believer in selecting accessories carefully to tailor your look. I haven't been a follower of my belief very much lately (I haven't been feeling well), but when I taught college, I spent more time selecting my accessories than I did choosing an outfit or applying makeup. Thank you for your lovely examples.

    1. I totally understand! It may take me 5 minutes to decide what to wear and then another 15/20 trying to pick the perfect accessories! LOL! I hope you feel better soon! :-)
