If you’re new to accessorizing, you may feel a little confused. After all, you don’t want to be that person who has over-accessorized, but you also want to look on point with your fashion.
Here are some tips for accessorizing different outfits:
The Little Black Dress
This is a classic for any formal event, the trick is to ensure that it’s perfectly fitted and works well with your body shape. Once you’ve chosen a little black dress, the next thing you need to do is choose your accessories. Think a sexy pair of heels in either black or something a little sparkly, along with either a nice necklace or cute earrings. The trick is to not go overboard here and let the dress shine through.
A white Blouse and Jeans
This is another classic outfit, but without accessorizing it can look boring. Tie a scarf around your waste, switch out the jeans for a pencil skirt or pair of tailored pants for the office or pair the outfit with some cute flats and a chunky necklace.
Many people assume that cashmere is only for winter but it’s actually great for the shoulder seasons too. Try a comfortable cashmere sweater, since there’s nothing warmer, softer and more luxurious than the feel of cashmere against your skin. Pair it with heels and leggings or tights and a black skirt and you’ll be covered throughout the year. Head to Dunedin Cashmere for a wide range of cashmere scarves, sweaters and accessories.
Blazers are the perfect accessory and they can dress up an outfit for an excellent office-to-evening choice. Choose a tailored style in navy or black and wear it with a top and tailored jeans and pants for a professional look. Pair with a nice watch and some cute heels and enjoy the look of a tiny waist.
A Trench Coat
Trench coats are back, and this sexy accessory is the perfect choice for those days when you want to look dressed up without putting in too much effort. Choose one with all the iconic details like epaulettes, a notched collar, a double-breasted button front and a tapered waist to keep the classic look on point. Pair it with sheer tights and black heels.
Every woman should own a pair of nude heels. Ideally leather, they can be used every season and are among the most versatile wardrobe staples around. They can accessorize everything from weekend attire to office wear and come in a variety of different “nude” pumps that can keep you looking chic both in the boardroom and in the mall.
These go well with an elegant pair of heels and a blouse, and are also a classy replacement for an evening dress or office-wear. Choose a stretch or wool blend and make sure they’re sharply tailored so they show off your figure and still look elegant.
