Have you ever constructed the perfect outfit in your head, then you actually put it on and it just doesn’t add up? The feeling that your outfit is missing something that you just can’t put your finger on is frustrating to say the least, but we’re here to help. The key is to think about the details of your ensemble, otherwise known as the accessories. You’ve probably heard the expression “the devil is in the details,” but this is your crash course on how to transform that devilish frustration into powerful accessories that will complete any outfit.
Jewelry is probably the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of accessories, so let’s start with statement necklaces. No, we’re not talking about those cheap bubble necklaces you wore in high school. A necklace doesn’t have to be huge and flashy to make a statement, especially when pairing it with a neutral outfit.
Next stop: earrings. Big, colorful earrings like these are a great addition to any look, even if you’re already sporting a range of colors. We say the more the merrier!
Jewelry may be first on this list, but it’s not the only thing you can use to accessorize. Hats are the perfect way to tie your outfit together while effortlessly covering the inevitable bad hair day – it’s a win-win. Mix it up with a patterned sun hat like this one.
A nice, sunny day is the perfect time to experiment with your street style, so why not take advantage of the weather and add a pair of retro sunglasses to your look. Your eyes and your outfit will thank you.
Finally, the purse. You take one everywhere you go, so you might as well have some fun with it. Whatever your style is, a pop of color from your bag – whatever the size – can really pull everything together.
