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.

10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

Getting naked is often thought of as an act that should only be reserved for intimacy—and even then some get squirmy! Many people are more comfortable believing that the more clothes you are wearing the better. However, getting naked more often can have great benefits for you. Here are 10 great reasons to get naked more often:

1. It burns more fat.

Your body’s main supply of brown adipose tissue (BAT), or good fat cells, are located around your shoulder blades and neck. When your body is exposed to the elements and is cooler, the BAT proliferates and essentially kills the white adipose tissue, aka bad fat cells. So, not wearing any clothes helps promote this and makes you healthier.

2. You’ll become comfortable with who you are.

Self-acceptance is hard to come by today. Ask anyone you know and see if they are happy with themselves. Chances are they will say they are too fat, not pretty, and find all of the flaws that they can. In reality, others do not see this. They see that you are beautiful. When you begin to get naked, you learn to appreciate your body and realize how beautiful you really are.

3. It saves you money.

Being naked more often saves on buying new clothing since you are wearing nothing a lot of the time. Be careful when you are in public, though—you may have to put on some clothes!

4. It increases your immune system.

Being naked and getting exposure to the sun’s rays actually increases your body’s vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is directly related to your immune system. When you have optimal levels of vitamin D, your body’s immune system is impeccable, and you will be better equipped to ward off viruses, including the common cold and flu. So go lay outside naked on your private balcony or in your yard.

5. It makes you face your fears head on.

People cringe today when you mention the words “get naked.” They are so afraid of it—and today’s children are so ingrained with this—that they must wear layer upon layer to deal with their body image. However, when you are naked, you face your fears of body image and self-acceptance, experiencing some of the best moments of your life.

6. You will feel better in your clothes.

When you do wear clothes (because not everyone has yet accepted being naked in public), you will start to choose clothing that accentuates the parts of your body that you love. You will begin to notice that maybe that muumuu does not flatter your beautiful curves and start wearing clothes that you love.

7. You will embrace vulnerability.

When you put yourself out there, it is a natural reaction to have fear and worry. However, this is an opportunity to embrace being vulnerable. It allows you to think and get down to the core of what really matters and what is of importance to you. When you strip away all of the excess, you are 100% you and willing to take on anything that comes your way.

8. You will show the world the real you.

Today, we have many ways of altering our appearance from our true body image when we wear clothing. Some people alter their image so much that they fear getting naked with the person they love. It seems crazy that this could even happen; however, the rise in use of breast-enhancing bras and Spanx products has put this idea into people’s minds. This all goes back to being comfortable with your true body image. If a person really does love you, then they should not love you based upon your image. If they do, then you may even decide that the ever-so-uncomfortable leggings that go up above your waist to hold in all of the imperfections may not be worth it after all.

9. You will have fun.

Well, this could go in all sorts of directions. But when you are comfortable with your naked body and see it as being flattering, then life is more fun. You start realizing that you are beautiful and are willing to do more things that you probably would not have done otherwise—with and without your clothes on.

10. You can have intercourse with the lights on.

Many people are self-conscious about the way they look and decide that the less lighting the better when they are intimate with their partner. It’s nothing new. If you survey your best friends, you will probably come to this conclusion too. They may say that it even gets awkward, because they are more concerned with what their partner thinks of their body than just having and enjoying amazing intercourse. When you love the way you look naked, you will also want to have your partner see you at your best.

What are you waiting for? Start spending more time in the buff today and begin to change the way you think about your body.
