Choosing Womens Accessories


  Choosing the right accessories can make or break your outfit! Do you ever wonder why some outfits look great on some women but terrible on you?
  Accessories are the secret to helping you dress for success. Having the right accessories can change an average outfit into a fantastic outfit. We all have different tastes and are attracted to different styles. Picking the right colours to play a big role in choosing accessories that look good on you.

Years ago I was clueless about choosing the right colours and styles. One day I met a new friend and she started telling me why I shouldn’t wear the colours I had on because my skin was too dark and the colours didn’t suit me. I asked for her help and over the next few months, I changed so much that my other friends started asking me for advice. It’s so fun!

Today, many women come to me and ask me what colours suit them best. The way I see it we have four categories of colours, one for each of the seasons. Plus, we all each have different skin types, colours and tones. Also, I look their hair and eyes.

It’s way too complex to describe the process in this article but we can learn how to trust our inner knowing of what colours look “right” and what colours look “wrong”. You can start to get a sense of this when you’re out in public. Just notice the colours that look great on women and the colours that look terrible.

Then we move into styles. There are so many different styles to choose from. Some of the most common styles are: casual, sporty, business, formal and romantic (frills, flower and lace). Also, we have different styles for each age group. It’s endless! We have styles that have been “out” for 20 years and now they’re hot again.

Our personal styles are constantly changing depending on our daily activities. That’s why we need lots of accessories. The most common women's accessories are handbags, shoes, belts, hats, jewellery, stockings, socks and scarves.

One of the secrets is choosing sets of matching accessories. So if you look great in white with blue accessories than you could have a blue handbag, blue shoes, a blue belt and matching blue jewellery. You might also have a set of red accessories that look great with the same white dress but change your look to a more formal flavour. The possibilities are endless.

If you have trouble choosing what looks good on you, find one of your friends that have a great sense of style. Invite her to go shopping with you and help you choose which colours suit you best. Once you find a few colours and styles that look great on you, buy a set of matching accessories. When you go home you can try them with the rest of your clothes. You’ll be surprised at what you see.

Colours are energy and any Fung Shui Master will agree that when you get the outside right, it also helps you get the inside right. Happy Shopping!
