How to Accessorize | Shapes & Patterns, and Motifs (Oh My!)

The secret to looking pulled together is often in the accessories. Learning how to master this craft for yourself is so helpful in defining your style and looking effortlessly put together.

There are so many ways to accessorize an outfit. The easiest one to learn is to match shapes, patterns, and motifs.

DOTS WITH DOTS

Polka dots are a timeless print that pairs well with pearls. Play with proportion. Any size combination will work.

SCALLOP WITH SCALLOP

Designers like Valentino and Chloe use scallop motifs in their design details. You can complement their pieces or create a designer inspired piece of your own by mimicking their motifs.

LOGOS WITH LOGOS

High low inspo.

The Gucci cardigans are such a good investment. What’s your happy color; black, blue, or pink? Complete the look with matching simple gold Gucci studs, crystal monogram earrings, or fashionable hybrid cuffs. Gucci not in the budget? Get the look with these Tory Burch Cardigans. The long style is a great update if you have the classic camel. Match the buttons on these cardigans with these gold logo or black and gold button earrings.

IT CAN BE SUBTLE OR SMALL

Its all in the details. Something as small as fringe earrings with a raw hem denim or fringe trim jacket looks great too.
