Accessorizing is Key | The Secrets of Styling

It’s one of those morning’s where you wake up on the wrong side of the bed. You’ve slept through your alarm clock and now you only have 30 minutes to get dressed, eat breakfast and still make it to work on time.


15 more minutes to spare and you’re running out the door to hop in your car. As you pull off, you start checking things off in your head to make sure you’re fully prepared to take on anything your job throws at you for the next 8 hours. When you realize that you’re all set and ready for the world, you glance in the mirror to give yourself the “I’m THAT b****” look and notice that you forgot to put on your earrings!!!

…along with your watch…and your favorite necklace…and ring. You’re eager to turn around but barely have enough time to spare.

Forget it…

You’ll just have to be basic at work today.

You can either make your accessories the vocal point of your look or tone it down with simple, dainty pieces. But jewelry isn’t the only way to accessorize.
