Simplicity and the Importance of Accessorizing

Accessorizing: it’s something that is truly so simple to do, yet sometimes so over-thought that it’s turned into a more challenging task than need-be.  If I’m being honest, it has taken me years to master accessorizing, and I’m sure there are still things that could be learned!  However, here’s what I know when it comes to accessorizing a simple outfit –

Consider the color or colors you’re already wearing, and how those relate to your accessories.  For instance: I wore a midi-length, white dress.  I’ll admit, it’s easy to add accessories to a solid LWD such as mine because I can choose any color on the planet. I did, however, take into account the shades of pink I would be accessorizing with.  While my earrings had three shades of pink, my shoes match only one of those pinks, and I didn’t choose something totally overwhelming like hot pink, but rather, the subtle peach tone in the middle tier of my tassel earrings.

If I had, say, worn blue denim shorts with a white top and olive jacket, I may have chosen a stand-out color to accessorize with.  Stefanie (my #BloggerBestie) I’m looking at you!  I was floored with the creativity she had when she added a vibrant, cobalt-blue backpack embellished with silver star patches to her casual ensemble.  However, that’s exactly the right move to make!  Add something that WOWS, if your base pieces are simplistic!

I find that when my outfit is accessorized, it looks 10x more put-together, and I feel confident in it!  You’d be surprised how often I receive compliments on my earrings, shoes, or bag instead of the actual outfit itself!  People notice those little details, so it’s important to put effort into spicing them up, even if it’s just with a simple watch or fun necklace!

My recent favorite accessory has been statement earrings!  I find myself wearing my hair pulled back more often during the hot summer, and just adding some POW earrings makes a huge difference and pulls together my look!  This pair of tassel earrings was handmade by Taylor of Pretty Little Things!  She creates custom-colored three or four-tiered tassel earrings that are adorable!  I love how these add just the right amount of color and pizzazz to my otherwise simple outfit!

I rounded up a few of my favorite statement accessories that are sure to turn heads and create a fun pop for your look!  Take a look and let me know which item you’ll be adding to your wardrobe!

    Your accessorizing tips are so helpful! I love that dress and your earrings add such a nice touch. Personally I would have accessorized with a scarf but that’s just me.
