We often wonder what is the best way to accessorise, whether to match the shoes to the bag, or match the headpiece to the colour of the dress. It all depends on which look you wish to create. There are no definite rules but I believe in the adage “less is more”. Remember that the outfit should enhance your beauty, and for that you need to focus on the woman, not the dress.
When accessorising you need to take into consideration the garments, the hair, and the make up, and find the perfect balance.
The bag does not have to match the shoes, it can match the ribbon of your dress or your earrings. The same is true for jewellery; if you wear a bracelet, a necklace, and earrings it will look too busy. Choose either one piece or two, eg, earrings and bracelet or necklace and earrings.
I have put together two examples on how to accessorise.
