In Accessories, Fashion, Style Tips by Karin Dickson

It defines your unique sense of style, highlights your good points and minimises the less favourable ones. Don’t panic, there’s no need go out there and break the bank by purchasing a whole load of baubles.

Killer Heels

There are very few things in a woman’s arsenal as powerful as a pair of sexy high heels.

To start with, a pair of high heels can instantly elongate the lines of the legs which make the them appear slimmer and create more elegant curves from the hip to the toe.  It can make the foot appear smaller than it actually is.

Additionally, high heel shoes alter the stance of the woman and this forces her breasts up and makes her derriere protrude farther out than normal.

The correct pair of shoes can even help create an air of confidence due to the fact that they make the woman taller than normal and she tends to attract more attention. Although they may not be the most practical clothing item in the world, it really does not come down to practicality.

Jewellery

Jewellery is an integral part of styling a woman’s outfit. Ensure that your jewellery compliments your clothing’s cut and style.

If you are wearing an open v-neck blouse or sweater, then a lovely necklace would complete it.

If you have a detailed neckline with fancy trim or stitching, try wearing a nice bracelet and eye-catching earrings.

If you have a complex necklace and bracelet set, wear it with something simple.

A long necklace will draw the focus away from your neck and face if that is your goal.

Unless you can pull it off like this fabulous women seen at Afropunk Festival London 2017, avoid wearing earrings that bring all the attention to your ears; they should complete your outfit but not overpower it.

How To Buy Handbags

Handbags

Choose different handbags for different occasions and based on your personality and body type. Do not just go by the style and design, look at your requirement too.

Women with children will clearly need some additional space, whereas the women who want to go to a party or special function will look for something that matches their outfit and is not too large.

Different types of handbags include; clutch, tote, satchels, shoulder bags etc. and with different designs, the choice is substantial.

A detailed handbag can do much to enhance a simple, single coloured outfit. After all, the devil is in the bag detail.
