Accessories can make or break an outfit, and in many cases they do. Here are a few times on how to accessorize so you don’t look like a Christmas tree, but to add enough spunk for your bling to get noticed and receive the attention it deserves. We don’t want the money you spent on your new Alexander McQueen sunglasses to go to waste, so let’s pair them with other accessories to bring out the best in your wardrobe.

If your accessories become the prime draw in your wardrobe you might be at risk of having over accessorized. There are a few exceptions, of course, but the general rule is that accessories are like decorative frosting on the cake, they add the flavor but don’t detract from the overall point- cake with a layer of general frosting. The point is flavor, not blind.

If it takes you longer to accessorize than it did to get dressed then you might be overdoing it. If you wear big earrings then skip the clunky necklace. You usually need only one or the other. If you have a giant bracelet then skip the rings, there can only be one highlight piece per area or else you’re bound to look like someone who wasn’t couth enough to know you were showing off.

Finally, try to bring accessories to the wardrobe that help bring out the natural colors and lines of the clothing you are wearing. Accessories are just that, pieces to help the whole look more whole. If you are wearing a blue jacket pull out accessories that either work with blue (orange, tan, yellow, gold) or else add more blue (topaz, sapphires, etc).
