Wear It Wednesday - Accessories

Do you ever wonder if you have made the best choice in accessories?

Starting with a white long sleeve tee and a straight leg pair of jeans I gave these pieces three different looks with jackets and accessories.


Accessories Tips






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.

Wear It Wednesday - Proportion

Are wide leg pants the trend you have been waiting for? If so you are in luck. They are very much in for fall 2014.


Wide Leg Pants

This look gives you a chance to have long lean legs, not to mention being two inches taller. These platforms are perfect for wide leg pants. They are actually flat so they will give you height without wearing heels.

Wide leg pants should cover your shoes and almost touch the floor. This means your jacket and or top should be shorter and more fitted to the body.

Your pants or skirt can set the tone for the whole look. If your pants are narrow and shorter, your top should be long and fuller. If your pants or skirt are long and full your top should be shorter and more narrow to balance out your proportions.

 Ignoring proportions can give you a very unflattering rectangle silhouette (think refrigerator).
