Transform your look with accessories

I’m not really sure how to wear accessories. Are there any rules?

===

Accessories can update or transform an otherwise boring outfit, for minimum effort. Start to stock up on inexpensive belts, scarves and jewellery, buying a few new bits each season, so you will always look modern. You should also ensure you have a good collection of day and evening bags to suit any occasion.

  • Make sure accessories are in scale with your body – huge items can dwarf smaller women, while tiny, delicate ones can make a tall or large person look bigger.

  • Team flashy, busy earrings and belts with streamilined, simple outfits.

  • Use accessories to draw attention to a part of your body that you like, such as your eyes or waist.

  • Never over-accessorize – for maximum impact stick to one or two items at a time.
