Dazzling Details: How To Finish Off An Outfit In Style

If you have an interest in fashion, and you like to look and feel great, you’ll know all too well how important the details are. Creating a fabulous outfit isn’t just about that dreamy dress. A pair of killer heels, a chic bag, and a statement-making necklace can make all the difference. If you’re searching for tips to finish off an outfit in style, look no further!

Choosing the right accessories for the occasion

One of the most important things to consider when putting an outfit together is the occasion for which you’re dressing. Are you going to a formal wedding, a business event, a gig, a date or a catch-up with friends? The kind of occasion will always have an influence on what you wear. If you need to be smart, it’s best to avoid over the top costume jewelry. If you’re embracing a theme at a festival or you’re going to a pop concert, you can afford to have a little more fun with your accessories. For a formal gathering, team a chic dress or a tailored suit or jumpsuit with a clutch bag, heels, and simple, sophisticated rings, earrings and bracelets. For a cool Boho vibe for a beach day or an outdoor gig, go for mismatched bangles, an ear cuff, and rings with over-sized stones teamed with a satchel or a backpack and sandals.

Complementing your style

Putting outfits together is a wonderful way to express yourself and showcase your individual style. We’re all unique, and you can use fashion as an extension of your personality. Choose items of clothing, accessories and jewelry that complement your style and say something about you. Maybe you favor a relaxed look, or perhaps you love to experiment with retro styles. You might love dressing up and enjoy the glitz and glamor of eras gone by, or you may opt for classic, chic styles.

Building on your existing collection

If you’re looking for new items of jewelry, it’s always a good idea to bear in mind what you already have. If you’re looking for a ring, and you wear an engagement ring, or a promise ring every day, opt for styles that will complement that piece. For ideas and inspiration, take a look at sites like 77 Diamonds. When you’re searching for jewelry you’re only going to wear a few times, you can adopt a more relaxed approach, but many of us like to invest in pieces that we want to keep for a lifetime. If you have rings or necklaces you love, it’s useful to use these as a base for new additions so that you can get more wear out of the items that are most precious to you.

Trying out different looks

One of the best things about fashion is that it gives us a chance to explore and embrace different trends and looks. There’s nothing wrong with having a wardrobe that houses everything from ball gowns and work suits to vintage jeans and pearl earrings, and items that span the decades. Go to different types of stores, look around for inspiration, and don’t be afraid to tick off multiple trends in one go.

When you’re indulging in retail therapy or putting outfits together at home, don’t forget to pay attention to the details. Those finishing touches can make all the difference!

  • I try to buy jewelry that will compliment the pieces I already own and wear every day to build my collection. I also buy scarfs and pins that go with outfits I already own to accessorize my outfits. Great tips!
