I know a lot of people see these long necklaces
and go, “I can’t wear that. What am I going to do with that?” These are really terrific
because they’re lightweight and they look very dramatic and they give you quite a flair.
So here again, we’re back to our very basic black. Again, if you don’t like wearing scarves,
a great option would then be to double over the looped necklace. That sort of fills in,
breaks up some of the black. And then you could add a pair of gold hoop earrings. Or
you could add something a little bit simpler. Just a little black and gold drop. Or even
just a simple black. Again, you can something with a little more dramatic flair. You could
put the gold bracelet. Or if you want to keep something simpler with the bangle bracelet.
See again, that all works together. Now, pearls are also a great way to go and I love pearls.
And they don’t have to look like old and you don’t have to feel old-fashioned in them.
A lot of pearls are long – very, very long. And that can be a little hard to wear sometimes.
Especially for work and business. They knock around a bit too much at the desk. So you
can just easily double them over. Now, here’s another little trick not to forget. Don’t
think you have to stop there with just a pearl necklace. You still could add in a scarf.
That’s still artfully tied – and I’m just doing this very quick – this still would work
for you. And just keep a little bit more interest going around your face. And again, if you
were in a simple outfit, that sort of just kind of gives that simple outfit a bit of
pizzazz, to add that extra scarf in there. Pearl bracelets. A pearl earring and you’re
ready to go. That would take you to a luncheon, that would take a lovely business meeting.
It could even take you into a dinner meeting. So that’s a couple of things that you could
do with the accessories. So keep again in mind that you want to build your accessory
capsule the same way you did your clothing, with keeping three elements going on.
