What is accessorizing?
Accessorizing would generally refer to adding highlight pieces to your outfit in order to make it stand out. It can be a piece of jewellery or pieces of jewellery bundled together or just a complete mismatch scarf. It all depends on what the person is comfortable with or his way of expression.
History of fashion accessories
Throughout civilizations their accessories have been a part of fashion forever. Some traditional accessories include necklaces, bracelets, anklets, earrings, etc. Fashion enthusiasts know that accessories are what makes or breaks an outfit. Gloria Swanson in 1951 made it with her stack of Cartier bracelets for collecting her Oscar of Best Actress and the heavy gold bunch of necklaces worn by rappers in the 90s surely did break it (it’s best that this trend stays in the history!).
The right way to accessorize
To be honest, there is no right or wrong way to accessorize as it is your way of expression. But there are a few fashion rules which are best not being broken.
A statement piece: It can be anything which makes you feel confident and comfortable. It can be a piece of jewelry, a footwear, a handbag, diamond earrings, anything. Just make sure it’s something which can be worn with a lot of outfits and displays your sense of style.
Get the colour right: Accessories, whatever it may be, must be of the right colour. Summers demand a more neutral tone to the outfit, a rose gold hanging necklace can be the best option for it or winters can be played with bright and bold knee boots.
Accessories need not match: Don’t play safe with your accessories. It’s now the trend to not match them. Just like Serena Williams paired her green gown with the green sneakers. You don’t have to wear red earrings with a red dress, try diamond drops, rose gold, gold, silver, black or a completely off beat fluorescent green.
Pro tip: Try a hat! We have spotted many fashionistas sporting a hat at designer events and it’s a complete game changer. It adds a different dimension to the outfit and will surely make you a trendsetter.
You should have understood by now that you can just go wild or keep it tame with your accessories. It all depends on you!!
