How to Correctly Use Jewelry to Accessorize Your Attire

Jewelry has the power to turn your outfit from something nice to something stunning. However, be warned jewelry misused can create a mess that detracts from even the most beautiful attire. Accessorizing correctly, though, is an art form that you can learn. With these simple tips and tricks, you, too, can become a master at utilizing jewelry to its full and unmitigated potential.

Impact

First, you need to decide what look you are going for. If you do not know the impact you want to make, how can you accessorize for that look and achieve the right ensemble? Are you going for subtle, garish, colorful blends, etc.? The same dress can have many different impacts when you accessorize differently. That little black dress could be perfect for a romantic night out if you apply subtle jewelry, but for a night out on the town, perhaps you want more garish, with large gold pieces to get that bling look going.

Layering

It is a fun way to begin accessorizing by experimenting with jewelry. There are so many different styles. Think shapes, pendants, lengths, colors, and textures. You could try necklaces of differing lengths at the same time. A lot of bangles and bracelets can have a very specific look, if you are going for that hippy, free-spirited look, for example, that works here. If one bracelet is what you are after for that more subtle look, then you need to ensure you get something that matches the rest of the look. Also, you may need to know how to measure your wrist for a bracelet if you don’t want it slipping everywhere while you try to eat dinner in a sophisticated manner. In some cases, different earrings on each ear can be a great addition to a look. Lots of random rings, too, could be what you’re after. The tip here is to experiment and get a few different looks down to a tee.

Don’t Over Accessorize

Sometimes that extra ring or necklace can really detract from a great look. Remember, sometimes less is more. When you try new looks out, be critical, and know when it is time to stop with the jewelry.

Earrings

Earrings are like an extension of your makeup as they are up by your face. Anyone looking at you will notice them, and you will want something that suits your style, look, and face type. Do you want to add movement with something dangly which can help you out of you’re a little nervous, or how about something sparkling like diamonds?

Be Bold

You never got anywhere by following the herd. Think a little differently. Why not try and create your own jewelry? DIY jewelry will ensure that you will have something that will be totally unique. You never know what kind of statement you can make if you do it yourself. Also, you can be sure to get that piece you always dreamed of this way. Most people have a set idea of something but can never find it anywhere. Creating your own can be the perfect answer.

5 Essential Fashion Textiles To Add To Your Fall Wardrobe

Fall is here, and if you haven’t done so already, it’s time to freshen up your wardrobe for the cooler season. An essential part of creating the ultimate fall wardrobe is picking the right textiles for the season. Picking the right material is important for two main reasons. First, it determines the overall style of your fall fashion, and second, it ensures that your skin receives the right protection during the season. So, are you looking to create the ultimate fall fashion wardrobe? Here are the best textiles that deserve a place in your wardrobe.

 

Faux Leather

Many people already consider leather a fall staple, which will not change any time soon. But it’s best to choose a softer leather material this fall and combine it with pastel or saturated tones and soft design finishes. This way, whether you want to rock leather pants or trousers, dresses, blazers, or blouses, you’ll still have the resilience of the leather material while enjoying a softer feel on your skin.

 

Corduroy

The mention of corduroy may have raised your eyebrows slightly, which is understandable. While many people have relegated this material to the 70s background, corduroy is still very relevant today, even more so this fall. It’s a quick go-to material if you’re looking for a material with a textured feel that will also insulate and keep you warm when the temperature drops. But you can also pull off catchy fashion looks with corduroy, from rocking flared corded trousers to dresses, skirts, and corduroy suits. Or you can go for a 70s vibe fashion look and stand out from the crowd.

Linen

Many people may consider linen an ideal summer material, with its soft feel, lighter weight, and gentle touch on the skin. But linen can also be an excellent textile to use during fall. That’s because it can keep you warm during the cooler fall and winter months. You can wear it in layers or pair it with other materials to create unique fashion looks. But to do this, be sure to purchase your preferred linen fabric by the yard from a trusted seller.

 

Polyester

Polyester may not be the most popular material choice, but it’s one of the most useful textile options for your fall wardrobe. That’s because polyester traps the elements of your outfits and keeps the heat locked up inside. Despite its lightweight, it can keep the rain and moisture out without trapping them. You can also pull off several fashion looks with polyester, especially when paired with other materials.

 

Wool

Wool fabrics are excellent when it comes to trapping heat, insulating, and protecting your body from the wind. With the constant rise and fall in temperatures during fall, wool materials can give your skin the protection it needs. And because of their insulation properties, you can wear wool for fall outdoor activities. Regarding fashion, you can pick dresses, sweaters, and coats made from wool and pair them with other lighter materials, as wool can be pretty heavy. Alternatively, you can opt for soft, comfortable, and lightweight wool materials like cashmere and merino wool.
