Accessories play an important role in every outfit. They can complement, complete, and adorn the look, but they can also ruin it if chosen incorrectly.

Stylist Eliz Gan, on her Telegram channel Pocket Stylist, shares tips on how to choose accessories correctly.

How to choose accessories correctly

Firstly, you can never have too many accessories, but there's a fine line as they might not complement each other, creating an unfinished or messy look. Remember, everyone has their own sense of balance.

If you're a fan of minimalism, your accessories will stand out from the flashy ones and make your outfits delicate and elegant.

The shapes of minimalist accessories are usually standard: round, square, oval, or triangular. Their size is also small, making them subtle to others.

The color palette for minimalist decorations is usually restrained, without bright colors or excessive additional decor.

The shape of attractive bright accessories, on the contrary, can be varied, woven, sometimes mixing several forms in one decoration. Colors can be completely different, just like additional decorations made of stones, wood, or various fabrics.

These accessories will help you stand out among others and become more vibrant if that's your goal. Sometimes, accessories indeed add vibrancy and reveal a woman from a new perspective.

You can play with this; the key is not to go overboard and not turn your stylish look into something comical.

When forming your style, pay attention to what you want from clothes, accessories, and your overall image. Ask yourself, "What kind of person do I want to be today?" and create an image in the appropriate style.

Don't forget about experimentation and the sparkle that can and should be displayed in accessories and decorations.
