FASHION: [accessories | styling tip #2]

• Tip #2:

It's all about the accessories!
Your outfit won't look complete without the accessories. The way you accessorize can either dress up an outfit, dress it down and if you're not careful it can also ruin an outfit all together.

When it comes to accessorizing, remember the phrase "less is more" and/or "simplicity is key". Here are a few simple rules when it comes to accessorizing: Never wear earrings, a necklace(s), and bracelets all at one time. If you want to wear earrings go with a bracelet(s). If you want to wear a chunky necklace pair it with a cocktail ring and if you want you don't always have to pair them up with another accessory. Some times being extra simple can be best. Keep in mind like i said in Styling Tip #1, there's SOME exceptions to every rule. For example, if you're wearing a dainty/simple pendant necklace (like this one by Marc by Marc Jacobs at you're able to pair it with a bracelet(s) because the necklace isn't over powering.

One of the most important accessory to any outfit are the shoes because it sets the tone of the whole outfit. Flat boots to dress it down, heeled boots to dress it up, strappy heels to feel fancy or pumps to make it classic. Shoes are actually one of the accessories I don't think you necessarily have to spend a lot of money on. With so many shoe companies out there creating knock-offs it's not hard to find shoes that look great for less. Just remember to pay a little for something that looks like it would cost a lot more and also keep in mind the higher the heel the nice your legs will look. If you do have some money to spare, it definitely wouldn't hurt to spend money on classic staples, you can never go wrong with a black pump. Like these Christian Louboutin Rolando pumps.

And for the guys, more of you should start looking into more men's accessories like watches, shoes, and even ties clips, neckties, pocket squares like the ones by Gentry. Accessories aren't just for women you know?! Go for it. Add some character and style to your everyday look.

Until next time!
