Before learning how to choose accessories, one must first understand what accessories are. Accessories constitute everything else in an ensemble besides the apparel or clothes. This includes jewelry, shoes, bags, belts, and scarves, as well as hats, sunglasses and the like. These help personalize an ensemble.

Importance of the Right Accessory

Anyone can slap on a bracelet, necklace, shoes and sunglasses, but it takes an eye to pull everything together. Since not everyone can afford designer and one-of-a-kind accessory pieces, choosing the right accessory for your ensemble is the next best thing. Accessories can make or break your look, so being creative, and at the same time attentive, will do you a world of good. If that is not enough, you will look effortlessly chic every time you step out of your home, ready to meet anyone, anytime.

  1. 1
    Round/Circular Face Shape:
    Go for long and angular earrings. Steer clear of round dangling earrings and small studs. Round shaped faces are usually youthful looking. The face shape can be complemented with long earrings as mentioned, so try long earrings with something edgy on the tip, like triangles for a casual look.

  2. 2
    Oval Face Shape:
    Almost anything can be rocked by the oval faced gal. However, avoid earrings that go past the chin, since this makes your face longer. Try large studs or dangling earrings for your different looks.

    Heart Face Shape:
    Choose earrings with an opposing shape to your face, something that is wider on the base than the top. Avoid earrings that are the same shape as your face which is detailed on top and light on the bottom. Some recommended earring shapes are triangle and tear drop.

    Diamond Face Shape:
    Pick wide earrings with curves and lines. Stay away from long earrings. Wide earrings complement your natural face shape; these frame your face beautifully. Try cute studs or quaint drop earrings for your different ensembles.
