Welcome to 'The outfit of the week' (OOTW).  

If you are new to the WOW NOW community, this is how the 'OOTW' works. Once a week I will send you a photo of an outfit, often something I have worn myself. I will explain the individual pieces including the accessories.

I will break down for you how and why they all work together. I will tell you where I got it from and where I wore it, and where you can wear a similar outfit. 

Enjoy!

As you already know I am an accessory lover!

They complete an outfit. They take an outfit from Ok to great. As well as helping to instantly dress outfits up and down.

Necklaces are one of my favourite statement pieces. I am not exactly a print lover, so wearing a lot of solid colours allows me to add necklaces to finish my outfits.

Previously I haven't enjoyed wearing scarves but lately, I have become a fan. I think we all go through phases of liking certain things more or enjoying wearing different styles or different types of clothing. 

The 2 scarves I am wearing below are my 2 favourites. I like having my hair up when I am adding so much volume with the fabric around my face. It looks better. You can watch on this video  how I tied the purple scarf.

I wore both outfits to see clients. I have worn them to the cinema or to go out for dinner as well. The scarf on the left is Portmans and the one on the right - purple is from Kookai.

I would love to mention a couple of things about wearing necklaces.

They can balance the shape of your face, the length of your neck and your torso. They are a great way to create a high focal point. High focal points make us look taller and slimmer.

If you have a rounded face and/ or short neck you do not want to wear chokers or short necklaces. The same goes for very thick scarves, they won't work for you. In your case longer necklaces and vertical scarves will work best. 

Also, keep in mind that the colour of the necklace DOES NOT have to match the colour of your top exactly. Notice how I am wearing a green top with a necklace that is blue green.  In the photo with the deep purple top the necklace has a different purple.  They kind of feel part of the family. You can even wear completely contrasting colours.

When wearing a statement necklace keep the earrings simple. 

I recorded this video about how to store your necklaces a few weeks ago.

Remember if you do not see it you won't wear it.

Your homework now is to check your accessories. what needs to go and what do you want to bring in to revamp your wardrobe?

Have a fantastic week.
