Accessorizing is one of the most important things a girl can know how to do. If she picks a wonderful outfit but matches it with horrible accessories, then she can completely ruin the ensemble. In addition to not understanding the importance of accessorizing effectively, many teenage girls do not know exactly what accessories are: They simply are the jewelry and other parts of the outfit that are not the clothing. To learn some great tips on accessories that will help you look really great and benefit your sense of personal style, read the following steps.
- The first step in picking out fantastic accessories is to get a pair of really nice earrings that compliment your outfit fabulously. Earrings can have some of the same colors in them as in the fabrics of your outfit, or they can just have a nice design or shape that works for you. When you are picking out your earrings, keep in mind that you will be going to school or to some activity if you are a teenage girl, so make your choice reasonable and practical. Go for something on the light side, as well as something that is not incredibly expensive or valuable. Another thing to keep in mind is that this jewelry is an expression of your personality. It should be something you like and that you feel comfortable wearing. If you like hoop earrings and you are wearing a V-Neck baby blue shirt, you could go with some medium-sized silver hoops, maybe with a design on them. This would combine something you liked with something that goes well with your outfit.
- After you have selected the earrings, your next step will be to select a necklace. Since you will most likely be at school or doing some other activity, you need a practical necklace. Choose one with a small jewel or locket on it or a decorated chain. This necklace reflects your personal style, so pick a color you like or a charm that is the shape of something that associates with your interests. Be careful that if you choose a color in your necklace that is it very versatile.
- Picking a bracelet can be somewhat difficult when you are trying to accessorize practically, but there is a solution. Even though you may normally see only bracelets that are very fancy and have expensive jewels in them, you can find bracelets that fit your sense of style and your price range. Some girls who tend to be very athletic simply take a hair band in one of their favorite colors or with their favorite designs on it and slide it on their wrist. Another option for picking out a practical bracelet is to string glass beads onto an elastic band and attach a clasp.
- The last step in simple yet great-looking accessories is to add hair pieces. A sporty look can be achieved by adding a sports headband to hold your hair back and add a little flair. Other headband choice could be a ribbon tied under your hair, a thin sparkly colored plastic headband, or a plaid ribbon strung over a moderately thick plastic headband tied under your hair. These choices will make it very easy to hold your hair back without getting in your way and still look fabulous.
