1. The red Chanel inspired jacket is classic and simple so all the items I added are also along those lines.
2. The black jacket is military inspired so I added a regal simple medallion necklace and a structured belt. One basic tip I always follow is to wear a small pair of studs or no earrings at all if your necklace is bold.
3. The mustard color leather moto jacket is modern and dramatic so I added a simple low slung chain belt, bold modern earrings and an equally bold cuff.
When adding accessories make sure they relate to the type of clothing you are wearing. Think about the architecture of a building. Clean lines look great together but some styles are too busy and fussy to be combined with anything but a very simple look. Statement necklaces look great with a sleek solid color tunic and slacks. The same necklace combined with earrings and a ruffled shirt and long full skirt will be too much going on in the same outfit.
Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond.
The second fifty years are truly the best!
