Accessorizing can make or break an outfit

As a personal stylist and owner of a holistic Image consultant business: Illumé one of the most important tools that I teach my clients is how to use accessories to enhance their looks.

Jewelry is especially key in the realm of accessorizing, and it often goes awry. Accessorizing with Jewelry can make or break an outfit. Done right it can complete a look, done wrong it will only take away. Here are some simple tips to help you get it right:

  • When choosing a piece think about what it is “saying” on its own, consider what it is expressing. Ask yourself it is in line with the mood of your outfit, decide if you want to use is as a “contrast” piece to dress something up or down.
  • Remember often times less is more.
  • If wearing multiple pieces make sure that they blend.
  • Consider your color palette and make sure the jewelry is complimentary.

One of my favorite current style’s of jewelry are large vivid pieces that are made of organic looking materials. The jewelry by Selen Design is a perfect example of this.

Below are some of my favorite pieces by her:

When wearing this type of jewelry it is especially important to follow the tips above. Each pieces is a statement on its own, so you want to be careful not to over do it or just slap it on without conscious consideration of how it all goes together.

Remember, style comes from a place of knowing who you are and letting the world see it rather than hiding behind safe, boring or trendy.

    Thank you, Trinity! Really love this last sentence :Remember, style comes from a place of knowing who you are and letting the world see it rather than hiding behind safe, boring or trendy. I think we worry so much about celebrities, when what really matters is finding who we really are…..
