Knowing how to accessorise an outfit or garment is simple if you remember these simple guidelines:
Complex garments or outfits have multiple design features that can be easily rendered as busy if incorrectly accessorised.
The main garment will need to remain the star/main focus of the look.
When accessorizing these outfits it’s best to:
~ Keep the number of accessories to no more than 3.
~ Use the background colour for the accessories
~ Use understated/simple accessories.
~ Echo the most common design line in the outfit.
These are garments or outfits that have the main item which is a simple, solid colour and one that will act as a canvas for the accessories which will take center stage.
When accessorizing simple outfits:
~ Stick to a theme, mood, or personality for your look.
~ Add no more than two center stage accessories and 2 supporting accessories.
~ Have fun with colour – think complementary colours for a standout look or analogous colours for something easier on the eye.
