You may have a very good outfit to put on, but it is very easy for you to ruin it if you choose off beam accessories. On the other hand, it is easy to thrust the look of an ordinary outfit to the skies if you bless it with the right accessories.
If it happens that you find accessorizing being an uphill task, there are a few things that you can learn to propel yourself to the next level with this. First, understand some of the basic accessories that will help you out the best.
Fashion accessories mainly are Handbags, Belts, Shoes, Socks and Hosiery, Hats, Sunglasses and Eyeglasses, Ties and Scarves as well as Jewellery.
The uses of accessories are rather simple and what you need to know is the reason as to why you are using a certain accessory. You can use accessories to put emphasis on the best points as well as minimize the worst points that you do not want to be seen. You can also use them to update an outfit that looks archaic. If you need to remain contemporary, accessorizing keeps you there for ages. Accessories also help you to set the tone you want to showcase. A business, casual, artistic, sophisticated, wealthy and many more tones can easily be set by use of accessories.
When you go buying your clothes, evaluate the accessories you have and see which one will go well with the cloth you are buying. If not so, you need to budget on buying clothes along with the accessories which will suit it.
You should always see to it that the accessory you put on goes well with your outfit. The creation of this harmony is achieved by ensuring that your outfit has a common thing with the accessory. The common thing here could be color, style, design or apparent texture and weight.
For instance, if you choose to go for a light colored outfit and strappy sandals, an elegant light colored bag will do you a lot of good. The vibrantly colored pumps or courts going along with a top of the similar color will create an eyes-up result for you. That means that people will be drawn more to the upper part of you, hence creating a lengthening effect on your look.
Place your accessories in a way that they will be your focal points. A focal point is a thing that will attract attention towards itself. A conspicuous design, cloth line and brightly colored accessory can be a very good focal point. The main purpose of the focal points is to attract attention to any point you want or to distract people from what you do not want them to pay attention to.
Eyes-up focal points bring the focus of observers towards the point where they are, while eyes-down focal points work the opposite way. In addition, eyes-up focal points will make you look leaner and taller while eyes-down focal points make you look heavier and shorter.
