No matter what dress you choose to wear, accessorizing it can take your fashion game to the next level. Statement earrings, perfect footwear, hairpieces, belts, and so much more can turn your simple maxi dress into a party outfit. Belts are available in the market today in many different designs, add-ons, shapes, and materials, so you can own one for every outfit and hit the fashion game hard! Add these little pieces of accessories and try out these ravishing pairings!
Straight Jeans and Leather Belt
Nothing but a simple leather belt can add life to your everyday crop top and jeans. Whenever the belt loops are visible, make sure you don’t leave them unattended. This can make your look seem incomplete. Instead, get yourself a basic black leather belt and put that on. These belts go perfectly with straight jeans. Put on a crop top, a pair of straight jeans, add that belt, and you can finish up the look with a long coat if needed. This belt will also support the jeans, and you won’t have to pay a visit to the tailor.
Oversized Coats and Skinny Belts
Oversized coats are so much in fashion these days. People are slaying with them at meetings, dates, get-togethers, and other places. These coats themselves are statement pieces but giving it a touch of a skinny belt can just add what it needs for you to be ready to rock the world. Get a solid-color baggy coat with a neckline that you feel comfortable in, and put on the belt around your waist over it.
Ankle-Cut Jeans and Chain Belts
Don’t believe us? Well, then try it yourself. Cropped jeans go so well with beaded belts. This may sound too much to you, but what’s the harm in experimenting a bit? A classic elegant chain belt with a few strings tied to your waist will look dazzling when you pair it up with cropped jeans and a t-shirt or top of your choice. You can also add matching studs to give your outfit the finishing touches.
Long Coats and Designer Belts
Many designers and celebrities love outerwear, including coats, shrugs, and jackets. They usually experiment and create a new magazine cover look with the pairing of the right accessories. Most of the coats come with a belt made with the same fabric. But, what really makes your winter look stand out is adding a designer belt supporting your coat. This will not only provide shape to your outfit but will also break the monotony of your overall look.
Maxi Dresses and Statement Belts
Did you get yourself one of those broad, designer statement belts because you loved them so much but now don’t know what to pair it up with? Well, these types of belts go best with maxi dresses. With different designs and patterns, you get a wide range of these statement pieces. Since everyone loves their maxi dresses and wears them often, adding a new belt can make them stand out.
When it comes to accessories, well, sometimes more is more! From rings to necklaces, stacking and layering have become the new style treatment. But careful curation is not important in any other area, like the ear stack. But, even for most fashion-savvy ones, matching, balancing, and curating perfectly stunning layered ear stack per ear, can be a tricky task. Here are a few inputs from reputed jewelry designers.
According to Emily Ko from Sit & Wonder, the shape of one’s ear and available space on the part determine the placements of ear piercings. For those having larger ear lobes, Emily suggests constellation-type piercings, which work really well filling up more space. For smaller lobes, spreading the piercings up the ear is best to leave your lobes less crowded.
The 40/60 Rule
But when in doubt about how to balance, there is a simple guideline, which Emily describes as the 40/60 rule. She likes to style around 40% of piercings with bolder or statement earrings, while the remaining 60% will be filled with understated and dainty pieces. Neat, balanced, and handy!
Mix n Match Styling
As per Chi Mai, the founder of S-kin Studio, mixing up textures and styles is the key to making your ear stack stand out. The rule of thumb here is to go with different textures and styles while layering, to make the jewelry shine, giving the allover stack a bit more oomph. Chi advises styling a pave hoop side by side with a plain hoop, a minimal hoop next to a chained stud, or adding a huggie to a dangly stud.
The Cascading Rule
Here also, the Cascading rule comes as a rescue in times of difficulty. As Chi explains, it’s the styling trick of curating earpieces, where the larger dangly pieces come at the front like firsts, seconds, etc. While the smaller, studs or more huggie pieces stack higher up the ear to the parts of thirds, conch, helix, etc. This balanced height of pieces gives an effortlessly elongated effect to your ear stack.
