When it comes to choosing accessories to use on a daily basis or on special occasions, we often overdose and end up using things that are too fuzzy or simply don’t match.
The ten tips below are very interesting when it comes to choosing accessories such as rings, earrings, gloves, bags, and shoes. Remembering, of course, that each person is free to wear what they feel like.
1 – Not all people match with big rings
Short fingers don’t go well with big rings. In this case, phalanx type rings usually fall well.
2 – Do not hide the bulky part of the jacket behind a large handkerchief
A thinner handkerchief under the coat looks much better and removes the weight and volume from the neck, leaving the face more visible too.
3 – Colorful clothes do not match with very large accessories
Accessories, make-up, or more eye-catching clothes are beautiful as long as they are combined with good taste because the three things together can leave the look loaded. For example, a blouse with a very bulky collar doesn’t match with giant earrings.
4 – Ethnic accessories match with neutral shades of clothing
The ethnic style is very beautiful and accepts the abundance of costume jewelry, but do not forget to take care of the balance of colors. They look better when combined with more neutral-colored clothes, like brown or nude.
5 – Avoid wearing a black shoe if your look is in pastel shades
Clothes in pastel tones look prettier when combined with a brown shoe, for example.
6 – Do not use more than three or four large accessories
In a look, some bigger accessories can be combined, but they should not be more than three or four objects so that the look is not too loaded. The ideal is to combine these accessories with each other in color, style, and material.
7 – Avoid the watch if you are going to wear a gala dress
The wristwatch looks good in a more urban or sporty look. However, a dress used to go to night events and a watch are practically incompatible.
8 – Choose gloves of the same color as some detail in your look
The gloves should match the color of at least one detail of the look, such as shoes or the belt.
9 – Forget the rule of choosing the bag in the same color as your shoes
You don’t necessarily have to choose shoes and bags of the same color. It is even more beautiful to wear colored shoes with a bag in more neutral tones, such as brown or beige.
10 – Use complete sets of accessories only if they are small
They say that necklace, earrings, bracelet, and a ring of a single set is cheesy or a sign of bad taste if they are all worn together. This is not completely true, because everything depends on the size of the accessories. A set of small accessories can give an extra charm to the look.
