5 Tips to Help You Accessorize Like Celebs

5 Tips to Help You Accessorize Like Celebs

If you read the tabloids and follow celebrities on social media, it’s easy to feel like the only way to be fashionable is by spending thousands of dollars on designer brands.

However, this simply isn’t true. Anyone can accessorize like the celebs if they understand a few important concepts.

1. Pair Jewelry With Your Neckline

How many times have you stood paralyzed in your closet or in front of the bathroom mirror, holding two different necklaces, trying to decide which one to wear with that dress? Well, did you know that there are actually some guidelines and rules of the thumb that allow you to choose the right jewelry based on the neckline you’re wearing?

Going strapless? Keep things simple with a short necklace and bracelet. Deep V? A nice ring and statement bracelet is perfect. Scoop neck? Try a short necklace and stud earrings. Check out this article from Diamondere for comprehensive guidance on what jewelry compliments different outfits.

2. Follow the High-Low Rule

It can help to have some rules in place to simplify the process of accessorizing. As a result, you can get dressed up in just a fraction of the time that you used to. One such rule you need in your back pocket is the high-low rule.

“If accessorizing your outfits does not come easily, just remember the high-low rule,” says one fashion blogger. “Choose one high necklace (sits higher on your chest) and one that hangs lower. The combination of the two always works. And keep them fairly dainty so it does not overpower you or your outfit. This works for everything from t-shirts to dresses.”

3. Stack Bracelets

If you’re going for a casual look – maybe a blouse and jeans – bracelets can really spruce things up a bit and give you that added flare that makes people look twice. However, one bracelet won’t really do much. That’s why celebs and stars are into stacking bracelets.

By stacking bracelets, you can draw attention to your wrists and make a statement. The key to successful stacking is to mix the variety up – both in color and style. There are also times when you should stack a little – say three bracelets – and times where it’s acceptable to stack a lot (seven, eight, or nine-plus bracelets). It all depends on whether you’re trying to dress up your outfit or dress it down.

4. Accessorize Focal Points

“Focal points are things that attract attention such as a bright color or a striking design,” stylist Jane Liddelow says.

The aim is to use focal points to attract attention to your good points and minimize or detract from your figure challenges! If you want to look taller and slimmer, try to bring the eyes up with jewelry above the neckline. If you want to appear shorter and curvier, jewelry below the neckline can draw the eyes downwards.

5. Try Something New

Ultimately, you have to be willing to try new things. Celebrities don’t wear yesterday’s fashions or hesitate to adopt a new fashion trend. They are quick to move and aren’t afraid to try an accessory or technique that’s unconventional. Instead of fighting off that next trend and only adopting it after everyone else has, try to be one of the first ones to the proverbial party.

Nail the Details

Successfully accessorizing on a regular basis is all about paying attention to the details. Whether it’s choosing a necklace based on a neckline or strategically placing bracelets to accentuate focal points, the celebrities know what they’re doing. You don’t have to be in Hollywood to look and feel like a star! Just find your style and make the most of it.

5 Reasons Why You Should Always Be Yourself

5 Reasons Why You Should Always Be Yourself

When it comes to being yourself, there can be a lot of pressure from the outside world as it tries to influence who you are. Living in a society that is constantly developing, it’s important for you to always be yourself from the inside out. When you deeply know yourself and the boundaries that you have set, you are more likely to experience a fulfilling and rewarding life. Without knowing yourself and establishing those boundaries, you can easily be pushed around and end up on a dirt path.

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it” – Matthew 7:13-14

You have the option of taking the path that is broad or taking the path that is narrow. You can either conform to what life wants you to be, or have the courage to remain true to yourself throughout the years. It’s definitely a challenge to have a strong sense of self when we are constantly getting distracted and being influenced by the media and society’s way of life. But if you want to reach your fullest potential in life, it all starts with being yourself.

Why should you always be yourself?

Because you will:

  1. Live in alignment with your values and beliefs. Being yourself is all about knowing what you believe in and the values that you live by. When you are not yourself, you will take on the values and beliefs of others. This is when you start conforming to other people’s expectations and way of thinking. When you know your values and why you do what you do, you will live according to your own values and beliefs.
  2. Establish your own identity. When you are able to have a solid foundation of being you, you are establishing your own sense of identity. No matter what happens in your life, you will always know who you are. There will be times where you may feel lost or distracted, but if you have your own identity you’ll be able to get back on the right path. Without establishing your own identity, you may easily conform and lose yourself.
  3. Build courage. It takes a great amount of courage when you decide to take the path that goes against the crowd. The reason why the majority of people take the broad path is because it’s easy. It’s easy to just follow the crowd. It’s more of a challenge when you stay true to yourself and establish your own identity. This challenge of always being yourself takes courage and inner strength. No matter what comes your way, you’ll know how to handle it.
  4. Establish boundaries. When you are always yourself, you know what your limits are and the boundaries that you have set for yourself. When people cross your boundaries, you will know. But if you don’t establish boundaries, people may very well walk all over you and take advantage of you. If you are always yourself and you establish boundaries, you are more likely to be aware when people start taking advantage of you. Create and establish your boundaries.
  5. Find focus and direction. When you are always yourself, you are more likely to have focus and direction in your life. Imagine someone who is constantly conforming to other people’s expectations. Do you think this person has focus and direction? I don’t think so. When you stay true to who you are, you are more likely to know the goals you want to accomplish and how to go about accomplishing them. You are able to stay focused and know which direction to take in order for you to accomplish your goals.

No matter what you experience in life, the only person that will always remain constant is you.
