Complete Your New Outfit by Accessorizing Your Face

Ever felt like something was missing in your outfit? If your clothing is relatively bland then it’s probably because you want to draw attention to something. Most people will unconsciously dress to either draw attention to or away from their face. Some people prefer to wear louder jackets and sweaters to bring your eyes to the branding and designs, while others prefer to wear relatively plain clothing so that the focal point is shifted to their face.

 

What you usually see immediately will be the hairstyle, the eyes and any accessories that are on or around the face. This includes things like necklaces, any dangling earrings (especially if you have short hair), piercings and makeup. This all sounds basic and straightforward, but it’s important to remember that as much as you accessorize your body, you can’t forget about your face and hair.

 

To give you some tips, here are a couple of ways to accessorize your face in order to complete your outfit without using bland studs or basic necklaces.

Hair Clips

 

Hair clips can come in many different shapes and sizes. While they’re perfect for keeping your hair in place, they’re also great to accessorize with. Choose from simple and elegant designs to keep your outfit graceful, or pick something color if you’re aiming for a preppy style.

 

Glasses

 

Glasses no longer need to be boring or “designer”. Let’s face it, people probably can’t tell designer glasses from regular cheaper brands unless they looked closely. If you want to stand out with your eyewear, consider buying from a boutique like Eyewearhaus.com. You get far more choice at competitive prices and you’d be surprised just how well they can complement your look.

 

Headscarf

 

Any cotton or silk scarf will be perfect t use as a headscarf. It’s a fantastic alternative to headbands and you can wrap it in many creative ways. Take a look at this great article from Babble.com to learn some fantastic tricks you can do with a headscarf.

 

Hats

 

Hats are a great way to tame your hair, but they’re great accessories to add to your outfit as well. Picking the right hat involves measuring your head and considering your face shape, so take a look at this informative post from TheChicFashionista.com to get some assistance.

 

Colour Choices and Size Balancing

 

Lastly, let’s talk about color choice and sizes. When picking things like jewelry, it’s important to choose the right colors to compliment the rest of your outfit. Neutral colors like silver and light golds are basic and will go with virtually anything. However, if you plan to use rubies or other colored stones, then try and create a contrast with your outfit to make them stand out or use like-colors to compliment it.

 

When it comes to size, make sure you balance them. A large hat with large hooped earrings might seem a little gaudy, but making all of your accessories too small will make them insignificant. Enlarge what you want to show off and make things smaller when they’re just there to compliment your outfit.

6 Wardrobe Staples Any Modern Woman Should Keep In Her Style Inventory

The times are changing seemingly faster than ever these days. The advent of social media and internet fashion icons lend us the feeling that the world is in a state of ever-changing flux, especially when it comes to fashion. Your wardrobe last year is probably much different from the wardrobe you’ll desire to own this year. It’s not easy to keep on top of modern fashion trends, but as a lady who’d like to stay current, it can feel hard to resist the beautiful style fads that come around every month.

However, as a modern woman, some simple wardrobe staples will never go out of fashion and have many practical uses. If you’d like to look stylish, professional or homely, all of those looks can naturally be achieved with the following items.

Shoes (All Kinds)

Wearing an array of comfortable, stylish shoes is a must have, but what you wear largely depends on where you live and the season you’re in. Most women have a natural predisposition to great looking shoes, just like men have a predisposition to sports sneakers. Luckily, those two have combined, and now large footwear manufacturers like Adidas and Nike are converting their product lines into beautiful feminine interpretations that can keep us looking great but feeling practical at the same time.

As a modern woman, you’re likely to need a functioning pair of trainers, some light sandals, some ‘going-out’ shoes, be they high heels or otherwise, and a pair of shoes you’d be happy to wear to a formal event. Those four shoe staples will see you well through any circumstance, and you can upgrade them appropriately as those go out of fashion or experience wear and tear.

Light Cardigans

Cardigans are among some of the most versatile garments you can wear. They fit great as a light coating in beautiful weather, but can also pad your undergarments during the winter. Stock your wardrobe with a range of variant thick cotton cardigans in different colors, and you’ll forever be finding practical uses for them. They can also help you blend a modern, city going outfit into that of a city/rustic hybrid, which looks beautiful and keeps you current.

Blazer

Any professional woman owes it to herself to have at least one or two blazers in her collection. Not only will this serve her well at work while advancing the career ladder like a corporate warrior to be feared and respected, but it will also serve her well during formal personal events. A well-tailored blazer can make any woman look amazing, equal parts professional and stylish.

Dresses For All Occasions

You need dresses for all seasons and occasions. Some women don’t think they look good in dresses and prefer to wear relatively practical clothes. That’s completely fine, and it’s not up to us to tell you what you should be wearing and what you should feel confident in. However, if you believe that you and dresses don’t go together well, we’d argue you haven’t found the right dress.

From playsuits to maxi dresses, there are many styles that constitute the word ‘dress.’ You’ll be sure to find one you like if you just search around, and if you’re not sure, why not hire a stylist to help you? You never know how amazing you can feel when you finally find a look and style that works well for you.

Jewelry

Every girl loves jewelry, but the extent of what they wear differs from person to person. No matter if you enjoy long dangling earrings, or having eight piercings in one ear, find what works for you and rock it! Accessories like jewelry can help complete a style, and tastefully applied, can do wonders for your self-esteem and self-expression.

If you’re not sure where to start and haven’t worn jewelry apart from maybe ear studs and a wedding band, why not start off simple with a new gold watch? It’s likely that it’ll never leave your wrist once you place it on.

Hats

Hats don’t seem to have as much cultural uniformity as they once did. It’s easy to think back to Victorian England, where hats were considered a style must-have and helped present your station or understanding to those around you in the society.

Why not bring stylish hats back to your wardrobe? Opting for a large brim summer hat can help you feel amazing during formal events, and can lend you a sense of style and class that’s unshakable even if you’re already on your fourth glass of wine.

The particulars of each woman’s wardrobe are down to her personal taste, and this is the way it should be. However you like to dress though, filling your wardrobe with a few items of each previous suggestion will give you a robust place to start from, and help you interchange outfits at will.
