Learn How to Accessorize Using Basic Pieces That Go With Any Outfit
I’m going to be showing you my go-to accessories that I love to use when I am styling up different kinds of outfits.
The pieces that I’ll be using are pretty simple and go with a lot of different looks, yet they make a powerful impact when it comes to styling. We’re going to look at some belts, sunglasses, scarves, earrings, and much more.
Scarves are such a basic accessory and one that you can add so easily to any outfit. They’re really simple to style, but they can change up an outfit so much.
In terms of colors, I have the standard black and white, and then this one is a beautiful olive green.
I also like this brown one in a fairly neutral tone as it complements my natural coloring.
Belts not only cinch your waist in and help define your figure, but they can also be a pretty accessory in any outfit. The one I’m wearing here is a high-waisted black belt that has two buckles at the front.
Every time I wear this belt, people are always asking me where I got it from.
Because it does have the double buckle, it’s not just a standard black belt, and it really dresses up quite a lot of my outfits.
So if I am going for something basic, I’ll chuck this belt on, and it makes such a massive difference.
Next, I have a black studded belt with chains that hang off it. I like to wear this belt with black denim jeans or short skirts. Every time I wear it, it gives me a skater girl kind of vibe, which I love.
Moving onto hats, this is my brown beanie that is super cute. I love the little pompom on the top, and it looks great when worn with a big cozy coat.
Next, I have this massive hairclip. I wear this all the time, whether I’m just at home or I’m going out.
If I’ve done my hair, then I don’t really like tying it up in a ponytail because a ponytail will leave kinks in my hair.
This hairclip allows me to have my hair down but still kind of tied back and out of the way.
As you will see, I am a big fan of sunglasses and have quite the collection.
These ones are brown with a thicker band on the sides, so they are quite a statement piece. Whenever I want to hide away from the world, I’ll throw these on to cover my face a little bit.
Next, I have some silver and black aviators. I really like the thin rims.
This next pair actually lives in my bag, so I get a ton of use out of them. They are quite a round shape and have a gold rim.
Moving onto jewelry, here I’m wearing some hoop earrings that have a bit of pearl detail on them as well. I wear these ones all the time; they’re definitely my go-to hoops.
If I want to change it up a bit, I also have these ones here. I love these because they have so much color in them. So if I am going for more of a basic outfit, I’ll just throw these on to add a little bit more color.
If I am going out somewhere special, I will wear more statement earrings like this. I love the big open square at the bottom; it’s so glam.
I love this pair of statement earrings because they are a fun shape and have a large pearl at the bottom.
When it comes to styling necklaces and bracelets, I love to create stacks. Here, I have this chunky gold necklace which I’ve paired with a thinner one of a longer length to create a stack.
I think that different gold necklaces look good when worn together and you can really combine as many as you like. Just make sure that they’re different lengths so that each necklace can be seen.
I tend to wear a lot of gold jewelry as I think it looks very sophisticated. Here I’ve got quite a lot of single, loose gold rings.
This is more of a statement ring.
As I said, I also like to stack my bracelets. I have thin bracelets like this one here.
This one has diamond studs around it.
This one here is so unique because it looks like a long bent nail.
