Welcome to 'The outfit of the week' (OOTW).
If you have been following me for a while you already know how much I LOVE accessories! <3
The reason I love them so much is because they can really help to finish an outfit. They take an outfit from good to great in seconds. And they are great to dress up or down outfits.
The most common comment I hear women making is I do like accessories but I don't know how to use them.
So today in the outfit of the week I am going to be sharing the must-have accessories every woman needs.
A simple clarification, everyone can wear gold and silver. Yes if you have a cool complexion you will suit silver better and if you are warm gold. However, we can all wear both. The key here is wearing silver accessories that are a soft silver and gold accessories that aren't too yellow when it is not your 'best' metal or when in doubt.
I have a cool complexion but wear gold, rose gold and anything in between. For accessories with colour I do stick to my best colours.
Let's start with the silver accessories.
I recommend you have a small, a medium and a large pair of silver earrings. These sizes are my standards because I like big pieces.
You can actually have studs and whatever medium and large size feels comfortable to you.
Longish to long silver necklace. Long necklaces create 'V's which are the most flattering shape for all body shapes. Again you can adjust the style of the necklace to your personality. I mean bolder or on a more natural style.
Small, a medium and a large pair of gold earrings. Then again my bigger ones are pretty long and my small ones are not that small.
I am just staying true to my dramatic personal style ;)
Long necklace in gold. Then again it is all up to you as to how fine or bold the necklaces are.
I have put together different necklaces here. The reason for that is that I felt one was not enough.
You can layer necklaces or bracelets from different sets. The colours or metals don't need to match exactly.
This necklace has a little aquamarine beads that contrasts beautifully with my blue dress.
A statement necklace. In gold or silver or both.
Always good to create a high focal point that will make you look taller and slimmer ;)
You will adjust the size of the necklace to what feels comfortable to you
Bracelets in gold silver and colours. You can choose cuffs, chains or fine bracelets.
Cuffs are super versatile. These ones are big because that is my style. You can adjust the size and look to your own style personality.
One last, but most important thing is how you store your accessories. If you can not see them you won't wear them.
Get rid of the things you don't like anymore or haven't used in a year. That necklace someone gave you last year but you don't like.. you can gift it to someone else ;)
Keep in your wardrobe only the things you love and that make you feel beautiful.
