The perfect way to accessorize

“One day the people that didn’t believe in you will tell everyone how they met you!”

Spring is here – well, almost!

With that in mind I wanted to share some tips about choosing the right accessories.  Spring and summer are times when you are going to be wearing short-sleeved clothes and sometimes have lower necklines, so your accessories are going to be more visible.

I love to consider ALL accessories when I am matching to the outfit that I am wearing.  For example, I have quite a few watches and I like to match colors, styles and metal tones to what I am wearing.  For earrings, I vary between studs and longer drop earrings depending on how I have my hair.  I tend to wear longer drop earrings more when I have my hair pulled back – this way the earrings are more noticeable and accentuate the outfit.  When I choose to wear studs, I tend to pick out a color that is in my outfit or one that contrasts (for example, yesterday I wore turquoise earrings and bracelet to match the Black and White outfit I put together).

I love wearing white watches in the spring and summer – I think they look so fresh and clean.  However, there are some days that I choose a rose gold, grey, black or even just silver watch – making sure that the colors match my earrings, necklace or bracelets that I choose to wear.  It used to be that if you were wearing yellow gold all your accessories matched that – that is not how I like to do things.  I like to contrast different metals to add depth and dimension.

I hope you like these examples – I will post more as I find interesting pieces.
