Accessories can do wonders for your OOTDs. However, not everyone knows how to mix and match accessories like a pro. But fret not, here are some tips on how you can always keep your OOTDs classy with accessories.
Wear Timeless and Versatile Pieces
If you want to play it safe, but still want to look good in your outfit, one of the secrets is wearing timeless and versatile pieces. This includes diamonds, pearls, and black stud earrings to name a few. They may look simple alone, but they can make a huge difference on every outfit you wear while keeping that classy look.
The good thing about these pieces is that they are easy to mix and match with other accessories too. Plus, they never go out of style.
It’s Not Always About the Brand
A lot of people think that if you use accessories with prints that scream their brand, you’d instantly look elegant. True enough, luxury items can make anyone’s jaw drop. But the truth is, you don’t need branded items to look expensive. You can even use a simple bag and you’ll instantly look elegant.
Even if you wear plain clothes or the simplest accessories, if you mix and match them well and you wear them with confidence, no one would know the price of your outfit. Even if you’re wearing thrifted clothes, no one would be able to guess it. So, don’t fret if you can’t buy branded items.
Choose Something to Wear Based on the Occasion
Sometimes, it’s okay to arrive overdressed at a gathering. But it’s never okay to be underdressed. To ensure that you always look elegant, no matter what the occasion is, make sure that you ask for the dress code. This way, you will neither look overdressed, nor underdressed.
If there’s no dress code given, try to do a quick research on the venue and see how your outfit will match the ambiance of the place. If you think your clothing seems a bit too much for the occasion, try to dress down using accessories. And if you think that you look a bit casual for a semi-formal gathering, you can utilize your accessories to level up your look.
Be Careful with Proportions
Your accessories can also drag your whole outfit down if you’re not careful with your proportions. Thus, if you’re already wearing something big and loud, try to go for simpler accessories instead. And if you’re wearing something sleek, you can go ahead and opt for bigger and bolder accessories.
Also, make sure that you carefully pick your accessories based on your height. This is because it can also create unwanted illusions, especially about your height.
If you want to look taller but you’re not blessed with enough height, avoid accessories that are too long, as they can make you look smaller. You also need to check if an accessory will highlight your best features or not.
Accessories can make or break your whole outfit. That said, choosing your accessories well is vital. Even the simplest ring can greatly affect your OOTD.
