How to wear clothes and accessories in pastel colors — Marcia Crivorot

I can't believe Spring is finally a few days away.

No wonder why we have started to see candy or pastel colors in stores.

They are associated with Spring and Easter, which is funny because I often see my clients feel confused about it.

They don't know if it's OK to wear these colors all year round, or even if they can look professional in a light blue shirt or a peachy blouse.

Great Ways To Match Your Accessories With Your Outfit

Almost everyone has that special bag, necklace, or wristwatch they love to wear to complement their outfits. But accessorising goes beyond simply throwing a bag over your shoulder— that is, if you want your accessories to accentuate your personal style and let your personality shine through. Nailing your accessories requires skills that allow you to play with different textures, colors, shapes, and other elements, in ways that flow beautifully with your outfits. If you struggle to match your accessories to your outfit, the following tips would be of great help.

Try new earrings and piercings

Earrings are the simplest ways to add a unique touch to your outfits. However, this would all depend on how you do so. You can experiment with various styles to see which ones look good on you. You would also have to consider the occasion and how best to match your earrings with your other accessories to create a suitable style. Also, be sure to get the right earrings in proportion and balance.

If you want to be more adventurous, go for a new piercing. Be sure you select one that would best suit the shape of your face. To be on the safe side, you should consult an expert to help you pick the right types of ear piercings and use the right aftercare techniques. For example, you can get a snug piercing from Urban Body Jewelry if that’s the right fit for you to ensure you get it done safely.

Pick the right jewelry pieces

Aside from your earrings and piercings, your rings, necklaces, and bracelets can also add to your appearance. A fun way of doing so is by mixing your metals. For example, instead of limiting yourself to just gold jewelry, add different shades of gold (rose gold, yellow gold, etc.) with a touch of silver.

Regarding necklaces, Y-shaped necklaces make your neckline appear longer and are perfect for plunging necklines, while a gold chain attracts eyeballs to your collarbones. You can also opt for pearls or diamonds, as they pair well with almost every outfit.

Get creative with your bags

You probably know the old suggestion to match your bags with your shoes. You can achieve this in two ways – in terms of material and color. In terms of material, if your shoes are made of suede, come with studs, or have shiny materials, then your bags should follow suit. For color, it’s pretty straightforward. Either your bag and shoe colors match completely, or they go very well together.

Add a hat

Your hats do more than hide a bad hair day, warm your head, or protect you from the sun’s harsh rays. They can make any outfit appear five times bolder, but you need to get them right. There are several trending hats you can choose from. However, the most important thing is to consider the purpose of your hat, the color, the weather, the occasion, and personal style.

You mustn’t shy away from experimenting when putting together an outfit, especially when it comes time to match your accessories. Latest accessory trends allow fashionistas to experiment with different color combinations, designs, textures, etc. So, do not hold yourself back or limit yourself to many accessorizing rules. Be willing to experiment with new things.

How to Decide on What Jewelry to Pair with Your Outfit

How to Decide on What Jewelry to Pair with Your Outfit Posted by Roam Often on November 14, 2020

When paired with the right clothing, you’ve probably realized that some pieces of jewelry can really level up an outfit. You may have a pair of go-to earrings for your favorite LBD, or a necklace you always wear to work.

But, are there any unwritten rules to what jewelry pairs best with what outfits?

Not officially, but there is an art to pairing jewelry with your clothing.

Below, we share our best tips for pairing jewelry with outfits. Or watch our videoo to get even more recommendations! Keep in mind: these are just fun guidelines that we’ve seen work really well. As always, be you and do what you want!

How to pair necklaces with your outfit

Here are the not-so-official rules of pairing necklaces with an outfit:

Solid shirts and plain tops can always use a necklace to add definition and create interest.

High necklines (like a turtleneck, collared shirt, or mock neck) benefit from statement or layered necklaces. Layered necklaces can be better for more professional settings, while a large statement piece is fabulous for going out.

If you’re wearing a flowy or loose shirt , use a necklace to give your body definition, and prevent the shirt from overwhelming your body. It’s a smart idea for these necklaces to have a heavier texture so they can really stand out against the fabric.

Minimal necklaces and fine silver or gold chains can pair with most shirts. Wear these with a t-shirt , or a v-cut if you want to show off your clavicle. Throw in some fun with a trendy pendant.

Which earrings should you wear?

Studs are perfect for everyday outfits, and more professional settings. They pair with almost anything.

Bold earrings make an outfit luxe. They instantly bring attention to your face, so they’re perfect for date outfits . We always recommend a bold earring if you’re dressing up or going out. For maximum effect, pick earring colors that contrast with your hair color for the earring to show.

If you’re wearing a high neckline , go with earrings to bring attention to your beautiful face.

Matching bracelets or watches with your outfit Matching bracelets or watches with your outfit

Show off those wrists, baby. Here’s what to wear with a bracelet so your outfit really pops.

Short sleeves and tank tops work well for bracelets . They show off your arms and add more color to your overall look. Go with bangles, minimal chains, or layered… whatever your heart desires.

Cuffed shirts are also a good choice for bracelets.

Avoid wearing bracelets with long-sleeved shirts , though, unless you plan on rolling up your sleeves. You want your bracelets to be free to move around.

How to accessorize with a ring

Here’s the great thing about rings: they literally go with every outfit. That’s why we have wedding rings and not wedding... watches, for instance! Okay, there may be another reason why we have wedding rings, but you catch our drift.

Here are a few pro tips to take your ring game to the next level:

Unlike bracelets, rings look super cute with long-sleeve shirts . That little bit of sparkle draws the eye towards your fingers and hands, especially since you’re mostly covered up otherwise.

The only time rings don’t work is when you’re wearing mittens or long-sleeved shirts with thumb holes. Your hands will be covered up, so what’s the point?
