The magical finishing touch of accessories is not to be underestimated. The right accessories complete a look taking it from nice to fabulous. Jewellery, scarves, belts, eyewear, watches, hats, and handbags can all add interest and pull the outfit together. Remember that footwear, although important, is not an accessory. It’s a wardrobe category of its own. 

These outfits are well accessorized, and quite easy to achieve. To my eye, the accessories make them.

1. Beads, Bracelets and Dainty Earrings

This earthy and bohemian look of blue jeans, black tank top, and ecru crochet cardigan is completed with small and narrow hoop earrings, layered earthy beads of which one has a pendant, and a wrist of assorted bangles and bracelets. The jewellery pieces are not an exact match, yet they work well in vibe and palette.

2. Big Bold Brooch

A boldly striped maxi dress is combined with aqua mules that work well with the dress. The look is completed with a gigantic rose pin that is as big as the model’s face. It’s pinned onto the turquoise stripe of the dress in the same colour to create a low contrast, which tones down its boldness. Clever!

3. Minimally Hooped

A fairly basic outfit of wide patterned pants, tank top, and refined earthy sandals is simply completed with a pair of big hoop earrings. The pulled back hair of the model make the earrings stand out even more. Although subtle, the hoop earrings take the look from fine to fab.

4. Colourful Complement

Last, dark denim wide crops and a boxy cropped white top are playfully completed with a colourful accessory complement. Big dangly floral lime earrings stand out against the model’s long thick hair. There’s a pretty bracelet that repeats the lime. A mango tote completes the look. It doesn’t match the jewellery, yet effectively co-ordinates. The patterned slides on the other hand, repeat the mango of the tote, which pulls the look together even more.
