There are a number of myths connected with the principles of picking and matching fashion accessories and what’s especially noteworthy is that many ladies follow those myths with great attention and care, taking them as primary principles for styling and designing their looks. Thus, here we are to throw light on the most widespread and erroneous fashion accessory myths for you to have a clear idea about what those myths are about and what’s wrong with them.
The Price and The Brand Name Are the Most Important Factors Indicating Good Taste
This is one of the most widespread ideas, if not the most popular one. Still, when talking about accessories we should note that primarily, it’s not the grand fashion houses that create and change trends first, but it’s the trend-setting factors that matter here. A fashion designer may be inspired to create this or that type of garments, accessories, etc., even getting inspired by a fashion blogger or an active participant of blogosphere. The less popular artists generally create the most widespread and great trends in the fashion world. The creations they come up with are really unique and none of the pieces created by grandiose fashion houses can be compared with the original, handmade, and absolutely exclusive pieces those individuals present to our attention.
Big and Noticeable Accessories are Suitable Only for Aged Women
Oh, come on! Accessories are just like any other detail that shapes your look. They are not meant to be specifically big or small, they are meant to be correctly matched and combined. The big and heavy accessories like necklaces and bracelets have constructed a separate and very popular fashion trend it’s been quite a long time! In addition, this enabled the fashion designers to come up with the most diverse style and shape interpretations for those pieces. So why should the young ladies deprive themselves of the pleasure of accentuating their beauty and personality stating looks with the help of these pieces? On the other hand, this doesn’t mean that they should rush to buy some huge gold or silver accessories with expensive jewels. The overdose with proportions and quantities is quite possible in this case. And the following factor that needs to be taken into consideration is the occasion and the style that’s required, thus avoiding expensive, big and catchy pieces for formal occasions or casual looks, for instance.
Accessories Should Be Picked According to the Garments
No! What you actually need to do is match the garments with the accessories you would like to opt for. You need to remember that the accessories are the basic and the primary reflections of your personality and they need to be chosen wisely. Thus, pieces like earrings and necklaces will accentuate the depth of the eyes, whereas finger rings and bracelets are ideal for focusing the attention on the beautiful hands. Besides, the individually created original options are so astounding that the pieces suggested by the brands really get overshadowed by them. So always pick the dresses according to the accessories.
Accessory Sets are Meant to Be Worn Together
What we may say for this myth is that you should always mix the pieces of sets with different, other pieces. Of course, we don’t say that wearing a set of pieces is always prohibited, but still doing so you really risk having boring and monotone looks. It would be way more creative to create some interesting combinations with different accessories belonging to different styles, shades, and forms, and, of course, complementing each other. So don’t be afraid of combining big earrings with catchy golden finger rings, some ancient-inspired bracelets and floral inspired necklaces. The basic principle of this kind of blends is finding a common thing for all those pieces you match together and basing the look on that vibe.
You Can’t Match Expensive Jewelry and Bijou
Oh yes, you can! This myth has been persevering in the fashion world for quite a while, but now it’s high time we broke that stereotypical idea. Now just the contrary situation is encouraged especially if the bijou has been created by an individual and talented artist. The real artists do not like any standard forms, old-fashioned and repeated options, or ordinary alternatives. They do value creativity and unusual solutions for everything. That’s why whatever was considered to be incompatible in the past is ideally compatible now. Thus if you see a combination of wooden necklaces with big jewels you should take it as a modern and cool masterpiece!
Go on breaking the fashion accessory myths and be the different and creative one around with the help of your unique and uber-innovative combinations and looks, why not!
