ITS THE LITTLE TOUCHES THAT MATTER…

Little touches*Pic Credit: here*

For every outfit you can think of, why is it that when you look in the mirror there’s always something that looks off? You get a feeling that the entire ensemble isn’t complete and something is missing. As with all great stylists and those in tune with their true fashion sense, it’s the little things that matter. Now it would be easy to just cart this part of your doubts off to the accessory range and just add bits and pieces as you wish. Would that really be the answer or should you really think about it? The most famous fashion icons never leave anything up to chance and every single subtle detail you see is no accident. They meticulously go over each part of their outfit and judge where you can add a little more and take away anything that crowds the look. For the average woman, it’s hard to judge where they should apply this kind of thinking. But there’s a definite running theme behind it, and that’s to only add on these extra pieces at the end for that’s all they are; decoration.

Breaking up beige

For those of us who are perhaps a little shy, not as outgoing but want to look great for the hotter weather this time of year, beige is a go-to choice. It’s something that just fits as it’s not too dark and it’s not very spring or summer either. It also fits right into the casual clothing style. Thin beige cardigans and jumpers go excellent with slim ripped skinny jeans made of a thin denim. If jeans aren’t your thing then wear some denim shorts with some urban pumps such as flat skater shoes. The denim should be a light blue as to finish off this kind of summer chick look you need a necklace. Since we are in the season of loose clothing, a dangling item such as turquoise flat stone necklace would be excellent. It’s very reasonably priced sitting at the lower range but because of the smoothness of the stones, they bounce sunlight back at moderate levels. It’s the perfect beach or summer vibe and finishes off such an outfit.Sunglasses*Pic Credit: here*

Havana and gold

 It’s about that time of the year where everybody is keen to look like a Hollywood movie star. People wear shades and stylish sunglasses almost with any outfit. It’s unfortunate that the average person not too fussed about their fashion always seem to think that black is the only color for this kind of fashion item. Mixing it up with a little bit of tropical direction are Havana-style sunglasses exhibiting black, brown, yellow and orange in the frames. The lenses themselves have a black to brown to see-through tint. But it’s not enough to finish off your outfit as sunglasses something that you would be wearing anyway. A lick of gold body jewellery in your ears would break up the lines of your hair and face with a dazzle. Segment rings or barbell earrings in solid gold are a smooth way to finish off a summer outfit with a bang. They’re out of the way but they make their mark by twinkling in the sunshine.

Summer is a time to be creative and climb out of your box of comfort. It takes skill and knowing yourself properly to choose items that put the icing on the cake of your look. Take some time, think it over and believe in the little touches.

    It’s the best time of year to break out of our ruts. I think with the sun shining and the promise of warm weather, anything seems possible!!

    These are great tips! Thanks for sharing! I’m a big fan of accessories but sometimes I’m in a hurry and never quite happy with the pieces I choose – I think investing a little time into thinking about your outfit and accessories ahead of time is a really good idea.

    Hope that you are having a great weekend! 🙂

    Dear Missy May, you are so right – sunglasses must not be in general black 🙂 I love sunglasses in other colours, too!

    While I love my sunglasses (though for some reason I never invest in an expensive pair!), I really struggle with where to begin with accessories! I want pieces that can be paired with lots of different outfits and being quite petite, I don’t want to be swamped! I definitely need to start doing my research!

      Good to hear that Emily. Just start small with dainty jewellery and simple accessories that can be paired with lots of different outfits as you said. You’ll be fine.
      Thanks much for the contribution.

    A great post; you’re so right about how easy it is to fall into that trap of not mixing things up. Recently strayed away from my trusty black shades to some red ones and am yet to turn back. Also, beige is totally where it’s at this summer!

    Accessories definitely take an outfit up a fashion notch, my beautiful Mavis! I’m all about sunnies … I usually wear black for the blog and brown on the weekends while running errands. I’ve even started to wear earrings again. 🙂
