How to Accessorize
Necklaces– Charms, trinkets and styles are an ornate way to accessorize. You can go wherever the baubled breeze takes you in exception of one thing. If you are wearing a high neckline, you will want to add a longer necklace. With scooped or deeper styles, the length of your necklace should be no longer than the middle point between your neck and the neckline.
Tip* If you wear a wider bold necklace, limit additional accessories as to not “crowd” your appearance.
Bracelets– The deciding factor on your bracelet will be in the width of the style. The wider options tend to have decorative eye-catching details. This lends a more glamourous appeal to your attire. Thinner bracelets are classically stated adding a charming touch to any design you wear. Charm bracelets are universally popular with customized representations of our character, beliefs and personality.
Earrings- There are many factors in choosing a pair of earrings. They should compliment your face shape and your hairstyle.
