When it comes to accessorizing, every women has a different style. Some women love to accessorize with bold, statement making pieces, while other women are much more minimalistic in their approach. Whatever camp you fall into, there are a few tips and tricks you should keep in mind to help you rock the best accessories for your outfit, no matter what your style.

Comfort Is Important

You’ll thank us when you have all the confidence in the world walking in your comfortable (but still fashionable!) shoes.

Matching Isn’t Always Right

It might feel natural to try and match your accessorizes with your outfit, as shown above, but when you get too matchy-matchy, it generally doesn’t go well. You end up looking a little outdated, too monochromatic, or even childish, which is of course not what you want.

Now, if you want to pick up on the blue in the print of your dress by wearing blue earrings, we’re all for that and we say go for it. We simply recommend not taking it too far by then wearing a pair of blue shoes, a necklace, and a purse as well. You should be accessorizing to accentuate the best parts of your outfit. When everything is the same, it doesn’t make anything pop, and instead you just end up looking boxy and bland.

Play Up Your Features

We all have parts about ourselves that we favor over others. Maybe you love the color of your eyes, or you’re really proud of your slender legs. No matter what your favorite feature about yourself is, there is definitely an accessory you can use to help play that feature up. If you love the color of your eyes, tie a scarf around your neck that compliments them. If your slender legs are your thing, it’s time to get yourself a great pair of heels. Or maybe you have a particularly tiny waist? Then it’s time to start wearing belts around your waist to help accentuate that. When we focus on the things we love about ourselves, our confidence ends up going through the roof.

Find Accessories That Compliment Your Complexion

We’re sure you know that there are certain colors that just tend to look better on you. Perhaps you stay away from yellow because you feel like it washes you out, or maybe you love to wear red because it complements your dark complexion. Did you know that your accessories can do the exact same thing, especially for accessorizes that you’re wearing close to your face, like earrings, necklaces, and scarfs?

If your skin is warm toned, earth tones and gold metals are going to look best on you. If your skin is more cool toned, you’ll find jewel tones and silver metals look better on you. Try experimenting with gold and silver accessories to see which skin tone you have. For some, both metals will look good, but for most, you’ll find there is one particular metal that makes your eyes sparkle more than others.

Sometimes it’s hard to know exactly where to spend your money when it comes to fashion, especially for style conscious women. There are so many styles you want to try and brands you want to support, but when your credit card starts to object, it might be time to reevaluate where you spend your money.

Have you ever noticed that when you look at celebrities in their everyday lives, they tend to be wearing plain clothes with a great pair of shoes, or a really trendy handbag? Your bag and your shoes really can make or break your outfit. If you’re trying to save on your style budget, start purchasing more versatile clothing (i.e. neutral colors and classic cuts) that can be worn a variety of ways, and then start growing an extensive collection of bags and shoes. Your bags and shoes will allow you to make the outfit look different each time.

And there you have it: five tips that will hopefully make picking accessories for your outfits more manageable. Have you used any of these tips before? Do you tend to go all out with your accessorizing, or are you more subtle with your accessories? Either way, we hope you have fun experimenting with your style and finding the best pieces that suit you.
