How To Use Accessories To Complement Your Wardrobe

How To Use Accessories To Complement Your Wardrobe

Accessories are a great way to make a routine dull outfit look expensive classy and chic. They can encompass several things like belts, jewellery, watches, scarves, shoes or handbags to name a few. Makeup too is considered as an accessory by some. However, when accessorizing, it can be extremely important to know how much to accessorize and what to use. Typically the choice of your outfit would dictate what kind of accessories will suit it. Different kinds of dresses need different kinds of accessories. Here are a few guidelines on how to wear your accessories correctly to create a fashion-forward impression.


When using accessories, ‘less is more.’ When choosing an accessory, make sure to use a few matching pieces together to make an impactful statement. Opt for one or two statement pieces at a time. For example, if you are wearing big hoop earrings, give your necklace a pass. Alternatively, you can also wear big hoop earrings and a bold statement bracelet. If you absolutely love necklaces, how about wearing a statement necklace and keeping the rest of the jewellery and accessories minimalistic. Chunky belts, scarves and big size bags are a great way to spice up a dull looking outfit. Just remember to use them one at a time.

Colour coordination

Another important thing to look for when choosing your accessories is colour coordination. It is best to use a colour wheel when trying to pair coloured accessories with coloured cloths. For instance, how about using a nice blue statement bag with an all white dress or a pink scarf with a blue dress? It depends on your personal choice, but generally, few colours work better together than others. For example, grey and browns don’t look as impressive as some other colour combinations.

Matching accessories

Matching accessories and clothes can be tricky. While some colours look exceptionally elite when matched with the same colour accessories, some others do not give the same effect. According to leading fashionistas, neutral and pastel tones like peach, white, beige, etc. give a very sophisticated and classy look when paired with same coloured accessories. If you want to make a bold statement, an all-black outfit looks really smart too. However, certain colours like light green, mauve or purple do not create the same impact. Matching outfits and accessories is a great idea if you know how to go monochrome with a classy and impressive colour.

Wearing accessories for your body type

Accessories can not only improve your dress but can also be used to contour your body. If you want to create an hourglass effect, remember to use a big statement belt on the narrowest part of your body. If you want to make your neck the focal point, use a big chunky necklace or a beautiful silk scarf. You can also add a big bag and a large pair of sunglasses to create different focal points. Just make sure not to pair two prints that do not coordinate with each other.
