When it comes to the way we present ourselves to others, the majority of us tend to focus on the main body of our clothing. This makes sense. After all, an outfit choice can speak volumes about a person and their personal taste. But it’s important to remember that accessories can contribute towards this! Now, many people make the mistake of thinking that accessorising has to be bold and lavish. They will browse real stand out, statement pieces. Actually wearing these can be daunting, as they can be easy to get wrong, and we don’t want to make a fool of ourselves. But it’s important to remember that this doesn’t necessarily have to be the case, and that accessorising can be extremely subtle. Here are just a few ways to accessorise without making any excessively bold aesthetic moves.
Perhaps the simplest way to accessorise quietly is to invest in some pieces of jewelry. While there are some really garish pieces out there on the market, there are also plenty of small, dainty pieces. Consider plain silver or gold band bracelets, stud or small hoop earrings, and simple chain necklaces with dainty pendants. These easily add a touch of personality and glamour to your outfit! The best part? If they’re not too bold and colourful, they can be incorporated into almost any ensemble without clashing.
Another subtle way to accessorise is to use practical and functional accessories. We are currently delving into the winter months, the temperature is dropping, and the weather is taking a turn for the worse. So why not invest in a warm scarf? Not only will this keep you toasty and warm, preventing harsh winds from cutting at your neck, but the right colour or print can prove to be the perfect addition to your overall outfit!
We tend to wear socks with almost every outfit at this time of year. Our sandals and slip on shoes have been tucked well away in our closest until Spring comes around! Now, if you’re going to wear socks, they really don’t have to be plain. There are so many different styles out there! From novelty socks to patterned socks or thick, ribbed boot socks. Choose something a little alternative to brighten up your ensemble.
These are just a few different options that you have on hand when it comes to incorporating some accessories into your outfit. Remember that sometimes subtle is better! It shows an eye for detail and implies that more thought has been put into your fashion choices!
