All that you need to know to elevate your look with accessories
Nowadays, we are immersed in a society where personal style is everything. IIn this blog, we are not against this, however, there are some basic rules and tips that you need to know when mixing your accessories, by Claudia Akel and others.
When your outfit is almost complete, the choice of accessories can be stressful. Long or short accessories? Should your shoes and bag be the same color? There are so many questions in your mind, all of which are geared towards wearing the perfect outfit.
In this blog, you will learn some tips that you need to know when choosing the perfect match for your outfit, and we will clarify some myths that have been passed down from generation to generation and are now outdated.
1. Earrings & necklaces have a logical way to wear
Everyone loves accessories and how they can enhance your look, but you should be careful when mixing them together, as this could detract from the elegance of your overall outfit, or cause people to focus more on your accessories than your dress or bag.
It is important to take into account that if you wear big or long earrings, your chains and bag should be smaller to draw attention to your earrings.
As well as the above, it is ideal to have your hair tied up to let your earrings attract the attention.
Similarly, if you wear a big necklace, you should opt for a dress or top with some cleavage, and wear small earrings and a bag.
These are some aspects you should consider to create a harmonious and elegant look.

2. The range of colors is important
Don’t limit yourself to just one color! You only need a range of colors and tones to create a beautiful and harmonious look.
Just imagine, if your outfit is jeans, a white crop top, and a blue jacket, your accessories could be yellow and other shades of blue. There are so many possible combinations.
3. It’s just a myth that handbags and shoes need to match!
For years, we’ve been told that handbags and shoes should be the same color or at least perfectly coordinated. This is not true! Times are changing, and the different items in your outfit can be customized to make your look unique.
Following on from the previous example, your casual outfit can be paired with yellow shoes and a blue handbag, creating a contrast that will make you look beautiful, chic, and very fashionable!
4. Dare to mix colors and styles in the same outfit
As we are in the 21st century, a year full of challenges and changes, your closet should reflect the same.
We are not suggesting buying new clothes, but sometimes your wardrobe needs new accessories or a different style, so don’t be afraid to try new trends.
If you tend to stick to white, black, and beige all the time, it’s the perfect opportunity to explore vibrant colors not only in your clothing but also in your accessories and shoes.
We have a world of possibilities to customize your look in unique and unexpected ways. You can even wear the same accessories in different ways, such as in your hair or on your bags, for a diverse range of outfits. The most important thing is to always express your individuality while looking stylish.
