27 Apr Styling an Outfit from Accessories
I would love to make this a longer post, but I have tendonitis in my forearm and hand, muscular knots, so I have to keep this a bit shorter than I would like, so I can rest my arm. Choosing a pair of shoes, a scarf, or a necklace for example, can initiate styling of an outfit.
This outfit began out of the mixed metals in this necklace. It is made of silver, bronze and gold, with black beading around it. I could see this styled many ways, but used it as the basis of my look today. After, I looked at the colors in the necklace, I thought of my leopard kitten heels and from there decided that I would create a classic look of black, leopard and cognac brown.I also added gold in my delicate gold earrings.
To make the look more interesting, this new top from Banana Republic has great texture, along with the bag and of course the necklace.
Here is another prior look built on an accessory, a watercolor scarf.
Here I started with the colors in this watercolor scarf, and decided to create a pastel look with the pinks, blues and grey in the scarf.
So when styling a look from your accessories:
- Look at the color palette for what you might like to highlight in your look.
- Think of how you can incorporate other like accessories to make the look interesting and part of the color scheme. ie. my leopard flats, pastel/textured bag.
- Try pattern mixing with a floral scarf and perhaps a gingham top.
Do you use accessories as a catalyst for your outfits?How?
Enjoy your day!
