A little accessorizing goes a long way!
Accessorizing your outfit is super important. The little details can take a simple outfit and make it pop. I thought I would take a bit of time today to share my favorite types of accessories and how I use them in plus size styling!
I love to accessorize!!! The mister probably thinks I have too much crap, but I don’t care! It is all MINE!!! Purging my closet a few times a year helps keep down on clutter. However, I never get rid of jewelry, scarves, purses, and hair stuff. Some of my favorite pieces are ones I have had since high school. I still use them!
One of my favorite things lately is a good belt! This chunky belt shown I got at a thrift store. Never underestimate your local thrift stores! My personal favorites are Love Thy Curves, Plato’s Closet and Clothes Mentor, partly because I love consigning with them and usually get a good amount for it too! Anyways, a nice chunky belt with a tunic can give a nice hourglass shape.
I also tend to wear a lot of jewelry and scarves. Seldom do I leave my house without something around my neck. I like big clunky pieces. This black necklace is a favorite, but I don’t remember where I found it. I have had it quite a while. You may have even seen it in some of my older pin-up shoots!
However, simple pieces, like this one below are nice because you can wear it dressed up and dressed down! Several places sell ones like this one from Simply Be.
Purses are another accessory I love. I keep several to match with different outfits. However, if purses are not your thing, I suggest finding something that is simple that will go with a variety of outfits. It gives you a more polished look.
The point of using accessories is to make your outfit stand out a little more. If you are like me and like to wear the same outfits over and over again, it also makes them look a little different each time, depending on the accessories you use!
