My tips on using accessories to complete your outfit.

For some people putting an outfit together with accessories is easy, but for others they need some guidance. Just by adding a necklace or scarf can make all the difference and bring your outfit alive. If you were choosing a wedding outfit, you also think about shoes, handbag and possibly a hat or fascinator. So, why not think about accessorising your everyday clothes. Here are my tips on using accessories to complete an outfit.

Jewellery is another way to bring an outfit to life.

I am a fan of scarves; in the winter they do add some warmth and will brighten up any coat. So many ladies have a dark coat perhaps in a navy or black, add a scarf it can transform the look. Particularly take care to choose one in one of your best colours, this will shine up onto your face and make it glow. The scarf will keep you warm and the colour will make you look and feel fabulous.

Scarves can be used as an accessory to bring your top or dress to life. On the red dress here, I have tied the two ends of a scarf together to make and infinity scarf. It can be worn with the tie at the back or in the front as a feature. This blue scarf on the right is just draped around the neck and held together with a hair scrunchie of pearl beads. It looks nice and is held in place.

Other ways to use your scarves.

There are lots of ways to tie scarves and when we get back to normal, I shall resume my scarf tying parties which are so popular. In the summer I like to wear a small thin scarf through the belt loops of my trousers. It not only takes the form of belt, but it also adds something to a plain pair of chinos. I have one tied my handbag and often gets comments on where I bought the bag, but in fact I have just added a scarf and transformed the look. If you have longer length hair it can be worn like a hair band which will keeps your hair away from your face and adds colour.

I am talking costume jewellery here, but the same goes for gold and silver if you prefer. As you are all aware I am a Colour and Style Coach, and colour is especially especially important to me. I have sourced some beaded necklaces that I have had made up in the seasons. If you have had your colours done you will know which season you fall into. These necklaces and bracelets have beads for that season in them. This makes it a perfect accessory as it will work with all your outfits. I am a Spring and as you can see in this photo these beads blend perfectly with my jumper. Also, they will work the orange jumper too.

The orange jumper has a bib collar underneath, but it could be a blouse. I have put a grey corded neckless with a drop silver heart which draws the eye down. Both jumpers now feel dressed. The other thing about these seasonal bracelets and necklaces is when you are shopping you do not have to worry about carrying your colour swatch as you have all your colours in your beads.

Shoes & Handbags.

Now these can really add a pop of colour. Take a denim dress and add a red belt, shoes and handbag and the plain dress becomes an outfit. If you would like you could also add some jewellery. The trainer is extremely popular now and can be worn with dresses and skirts. If you have a plain dress why not try adding a floral or animal print trainer? Who loves a handbag? I do, and I have several in different colours for different occasions. I choose not to go designer as I like to have a variety colours, textures, and designs.
