Any outfit that looks plain and simple can be brought to life by pairing it with the right accessories. You can do it differently each time you wear the same outfit to get a distinct look. However, as we grow older it’s not easy to go around looking stunning in any kind of scarves, handbags or wearing any piece of jewelry. You need to carefully plan on what accessories to wear with a specific outfit to get that gorgeous yet graceful look.
When it comes to clothes you get plenty of advice regarding the color, fabric, and style that suits each body type. But, it’s not that easy when it comes to accessories. You need to combine the right pieces of jewelry with the right shoes, scarf, and handbag. Here are a few simple tips to for women over 50’s to accessorize like a pro.
Necklaces and earrings
When it comes to necklaces opt for something that reaches your collarbone or even longer. Of course, chokers looked great on you during your 20’s and 30’s but wearing them now could attract eyes to your jawline. To avoid this unwanted attention opt for a necklace that is longer and that could make you look lean and long. You can also layer necklaces in different lengths but of the same shade of metal.
Pearls and diamonds are always a good choice when it comes to earrings as it works with almost all outfits. You can get a pearl stud surrounded by diamonds and it doesn’t matter if they are real or fake. Earrings that are large and the ones that come with a bling tend to draw people’s attention towards your ear. Avoid wearing drop earrings. Wearing long earrings could make your chin look droopier. For those of you who don’t have pierced ears, you can opt for clip-on earrings that are big and shiny.
Bangles, watches, and bracelets
Bangles and bracelets come in different colors, sizes, and designs. Wearing those is one of the simplest ways to create a youthful look. Bangles work perfectly with a casual as well as a formal outfit. You can wear it along with your watch. Wearing several bangles at the same time is also a way to attain a gorgeous youthful look.
It’s good if you can invest in different kinds of watches as they are now a symbol of fashion. Make sure you have a collection in different styles, colors, shapes, and sizes so that use the appropriate one each time you choose accessories for your outfits. Watches that are oversized happens to be in trend now.
Handbags and shoes
Gone are the days when you had to match your handbags and shoes. The latest trend is to mix and match shoes with your handbags. While wearing stylish beaded shoes it’s best to keep the remaining accessories to a minimum.
The handbag is one of the most important of all accessories and you need to choose the right one depending on your outfit or the occasion. An oversized bag in a bold color can add volume to your basic outfit. For a formal or semi-formal gathering, an elegant clutch or one with a touch of bling would work perfectly. Never carry an oversized bag for such occasions.
The ones that are studded with precious or semi-precious stones or pearls or a vintage paste brooch do have the ability to transform a plain outfit into a fashion statement. It’s a wonder why women worry about aging when you have so many options to be elegant and stylish.
Scarves that are colorful, elegant and stylish
Make sure that your wardrobe has a collection of scarves. You can wear them in different ways and transform the entire look no matter how old you are. Wearing a colorful scarf with your simple outfit can add a touch of style and color to your plain look. When you do it correctly it not only hides your wrinkled neck but adds a touch of elegance to your appearance. Wearing a cashmere or silk scarf can make your plain shirt or coat look expensive. Make sure you have the right colors. A scarf can even add style to a plain t-shirt and jeans.
Accessories do have the power to bring to life even those basic outfits that you wouldn’t prefer to call your favorite. Choosing the right accessories is the best way to enhance your style. You can go around with confidence no matter what you wear and your age would be just a number.
