Accessorising is one of those elements of making any outfit…well, complete. But, what if all you needed were accessories, to make that true statement? Even just one piece can complete and totally make a look. It’s something that oozes character, definition and confidence…and most importantly, it can make you look & feel sparkling. One’s that contain such dazzling and light catching gems & features, can also enhance an area of your body, subtly!
I wanted to share with you my huge need to try and make something look totally different, with a bit of creative styling thoughts and innovative ideas! Over the past few years, I have turned skirts into tops, placed belts behind shoulders & underarms and transformed shoulder pads into a true statement piece to draw the eye in! It’s possible to create anything, out of, well…anything! With a little prepping, playing about and experimentation, you could discover a look that’s totally unique! You just need to go with your gut and do what you feel looks fun and fresh! In this instance I have taken this adorable necklace, purchased in the Sale at Topshop last week (£5!) and wanted a head piece to go with this gorgeous golden weather, so I immediately took two grips, added a similar colour to my lips, and dazzled my eyes in gold, glitter eyeliner, and voila!
I gripped the necklace onto my forehead, after placed with another black feather headpiece and thought, yes! I like it! The industry and designers can create quite repetitive concepts and designs, so if you have a creative mind and aren’t afraid of experimenting with items you already own or have recently purchased, turn them into something fresh! For me, it helps to think of what would look eye-catching and interesting if I was Styling on a photoshoot or something similar. Have a go! And let me know what you do, to be innovative :D. (Alternatively, you could always wear this necklace with a white summer Dress! Make it POP Style lovers!).
