MIXED AND MASTERED: HOW TO MAKE YOUR ACCESSORIES POP!
More than fashion, I love accessories, because with a simple accessory change you can take a look and completely change it! You should see my accessory collection, it looks like a boutique with jewelry displays and its own little corner in my room. Mixing and matching your accessories will make your wardrobe go for days! Consider mixing patterns, colors and metals to make a custom look! Change your mundane wardrobe just by swapping out a necklace and a pair of earrings. In my book, “Are You Going To Wear That?! 365 Days of Style Tips” I share lots of tips on mixing and matching your accessories to make a bold look. For example, Style Tip #12, “Layer different necklaces to create a statement necklace” My string of turquoise baubles are bold alone but when I added another string it became a statement. Although they are the same and the style tip says make them different, it still makes a fashion statement. When shopping, consider trying on two necklaces to see it’s impact and if you must by two of the same to make it extraordinary! Another example of mixing and matching your accessories is in Style Tip #210, “Replace earrings that come in necklace sets for a custom look.” My turquoise necklace came with earrings but I opted to pair them with red fringe earrings to make my brown jacket pop! I mixed colors in this look to make my brown patterned jacket pop! My favorite style tool, the color wheel, I saw that brown is a shade of orange, across from it is blue, then count 3 over from blue and you have red making my triad color pairing! Mixing colored accessories is another way to master your wardrobe! Try it, I bet your wardrobe will be upgraded if you apply these tips!
