Accessories can make a big difference in the way you feel about an outfit. Capable of transforming an ordinary outfit into an extraordinary one, accessories can also be a great way to add some personality to your look. However, when it comes to choosing accessories, it’s not enough to simply pick something that looks nice.
You need to choose the right ones that will complement the outfit and go well with your personal style – like choosing the best hat brand: stetson, fedoras, or toppers, the right type of watch: analog or digital, and so on. That being said, there are a lot of accessories out there that are either overpriced or not as useful as they claim to be. This often results in consumers being overwhelmed and not sure where to start. To help you make better decisions, we’ve compiled a list of five tips for choosing the best accessories for you.
1) Know What Makes You Stand Out
The first thing you should do when choosing your accessories is figure out what works best with your unique features. For example, if you have large eyes and a small face, oversized sunglasses can make you look like a cartoon character.
If you have short hair or are balding, a ponytail can make you look top-heavy and disproportionate. By thinking about what makes you unique, then looking at clothes that work with that attribute will help your accessories blend in rather than stand out against everything else around them.
2) Know Which One(s) to Start With
The second thing you should think about is how many accessories you want to wear with your outfit. Too many can be distracting, but too few can also make it hard to look put together. Once you’ve settled on an idea of what works well together, start by deciding which accessories you want to wear with your main outfit and then add or subtract accordingly.
For example, if your shirt has a bowtie and glasses printed on it (like one of those 80’s clipart ties), picking either of those as your first accessory will make it look cohesive without overdoing it. Also, consider what makes sense in terms of function.
3) Large Rings Don’t Suit Everyone
This one is obvious, but a lot of people still don’t get it. If you have small hands or thin fingers, large rings will make you look gaudy and clumsy; there are no two ways about it. However, if you’re cool with looking like a clown, go ahead and wear whatever ring size fits your finger. But if you want to avoid that situation (and make yourself look better in general), just remember that most rings fit in average sizes – so while it might be difficult at first, try not to buy anything too big or too small right off the bat.
4) Only Use a Full Set of Matching Jewelry
You don’t want to wear an earring and necklace or an earring and a bracelet, but rather one matching set. This will make you look better coordinated and more put-together, which is something that people with lots of accessories often struggle with. However, if you want to add some pizzazz by wearing rings or bracelets instead of necklaces, go ahead and do so; just make sure it’s not too overwhelming when worn together.
Also, try not to use two sets of bracelets unless you want to destroy the lines of your outfit. The same rule applies for other types of jewelry as well (like ties with cufflinks, pants with suspenders, etc.). To help keep everything matched while making it easier to distinguish each item from another, find a colour scheme that works well together – like all black or all brown – and stick to items within those colours only.
5) Set a Budget
When buying accessories, your budget will always be the absolute limiting factor as to what you can purchase. However, if you don’t set one, you’ll be spending too much on a bunch of cheap items that won’t last very long or will end up being thrown away.
Once you decide how much you want to spend, stick to that amount and try not to go over it. To avoid spending too much at once, make sure that the item you buy will be useful in several outfits rather than being an expensive one-off item.
Choose Beautiful and Functional!
The best accessories are ones that are stylish, simple, and useful. And when considering buying an accessory of any kind, it’s important to consider its functionality and how well it goes with other items that you own. The world of accessories is expansive and boundless; there’s an option out there for everyone – you just have to be willing to look until you find it.
