Jump Start Your Style With Accessories!

You can elevate and personalize any look with the proper placement of a few complimentary accessories! Let’s start with a simple white t shirt and straight leg blue jeans, essentially a blank canvas ready to be transformed into a Jacob Lawrence master-piece!

Now, take a chic scarf tied in a loose knot below the collar bone for a sophisticated and polished look. Add a nicely tailored boxy blazer for a nod to the classic 50s silhouette.

That white t shirt has nine lives, so top it with a huge, colorful statement necklace that whispers globe trotter chic; think a midriff sweeping layer of necklaces in gold or an exaggerated collar boasting beads feathers or carved or wood! Temper this look with an athletic anorak in navy or army green and studded gym shoes (i.e. Giuseppe Zanotti – to die for!).

There are two important factors to shop by when searching for accessories. Always pick items that speak to your own personal style. If you don’t love it don’t buy it! You won’t wear it! Also remember not to go too “Ga-Ga”  and over accessorize, you want to make a statement, not be pronounced insane. You must maintain balance! Sure, go ahead, pile on the bangles in various shades and textures but let them be Diana Ross and all the other accessories act as The Supremes.
