When it comes to accessorizing there is only one rule: No rules apply.

Accessories are to outfits what spices are to dishes. It adds oomph and character.

Next to a few staple accessories such as a classic handbag, dainty bracelets and a pair of ballet flats, you should therefore not forego adding chic sunglasses to your wardrobe.

Not only do they add coolness to your style and confidence to your stride, they also reflect your personality in the best possible way.

Here are five tips to the art of accessorizing.

1. Think bigger

Although you might love the minimalistic Scandi style, when choosing your accessories, you should think maximalism. Over-dimensioned sunglasses, statement necklaces, rings and brooches can really transform an outfit and make it far more interesting.

2. Add instead of taking out

”More is more and less is a bore”. When it comes to accessories, you can’t have too many. So, before you walk out that door, make sure to add an extra piece, not forgetting putting on your statement eyewear as the finishing touch.

3. Invest more

Accessories and jewellery can change an outfit much more than anything else. In other words, by thinking long-term and sustainability, you should invest in accessories that can stand the test of time. That way, you can wear the same clothes season after season without looking repetitive.

4. Mix and match as you please

Once you get comfortable enough with wearing many different accessories at the same time, try to elaborate with patterns, colour and different material. It will only make your outfit look more interesting and personal.

5. Be you

Style isn’t about chasing trends, it’s about being interesting. Accessorizing is a bit of an art, and it can take time to find what works for you. Dare to experiment and be creative. And above all, don’t be a crowd-pleaser, just be you.
