I could never get tired of accessories, as they can make anyone look syper stylish. Wear Zara, H&M and Topshop all you want, and with the right bag and shoes, you’ll look like a million dollar (and no, they don’t have to be expensive !).

But is there a moment when you need to stop, or you’ll become a Christmas tree ? When enough is enough ?

I recently read on WhoWhatWear that one of fashion girls’ major problems was that they over-accessorize. And truth be told, they’re quite right about it : I mean, sometimes making a choice is tough, especially when your wardrobe is filled with the latest trendy and designer pieces (which is unfortunately not my case…). And admit it, there are days when nothing feels better than putting on a statement hat, a huge scarf, jewels and heels : haven’t we all been guilty of it ?

Learning to accessorize well is often innate, but can also be learned, either by a mother, friends, chic women walking down the street… And after all, it really depends on your style and whether you feel confident enough to pull off a very accessorized outfit.

Take mine today : normally, I think I can be considered as a rather minimalist dresser, as I tend to favor simple colors and looks. But here, I felt like wearing a lot of different catching items : a navy leather jacket, gold jewels and boots, and THIS hat ! At first, I was wearing this outfit without it, but when I bought the hat, I just couldn’t leave the store without it on my head, hence the heavy hand on the accessories.

 I make sure I don’t commit any fashion crime by adding casual elements : ripped jeans, and an oversized blue shirt that I knotted up. Over-accessorized maybe, but over-dressed, never !





---------------



Je ne pourrai jamais me lasser des accessoires, qui peuvent rendre n’importe qui tellement stylé. Portez autant de Zara, H&M ou Topshop que vous voulez, avec les bonnes chaussures et le bon sac, vous serez toujours la fille la mieux habillée qui soit (et non, ils n’ont pas forcément à être hors de prix).

Mais y a-t-il un moment où il faut s’arrêter, au risque de passer pour un sapin de Noel ? Où est la limite ?

J’ai récemment lu sur WhoWhatWear que l’un des problèmes majeurs des filles de la mode étaient qu’elles avaient tendance à trop accessoiriser. Et finalement, il n’ont pas tout-à-fait tort : comment choisir parmi toutes les pièces phares du moment qui remplissent invariablement leur garde-robe (ce qui n’est malheureusement pas toujours mon cas !). Et puis avouez-le, parfois rien de mieux que de tout accumuler, un chapeau qui en impose, une écharpe oversize, des tonnes de bijoux, des talons…

Apprendre à bien mixer les accessoires est souvent inné, mais peut être enseigné, que ce soit par une mère, des amies, ou tout simplement en observant les femmes chics qui déambulent dans les rues. .. Et puis après tout, cela dépend aussi de votre style et de si vous vous sentez suffisamment en confiance pour assumer un look (très) chargé.

Prenez le mien aujourd’hui : normalement, je me situe plus parmi les filles minimalistes, car je préfère les couleurs et silhouettes sobres. Mais là, j’avais envie de porter plein de pièces ‘statement’ : une veste en cuir bleu marine, des bijoux et boots dorés, et CE chapeau ! Au départ, j’avais prévu ma tenue sans lui, mais une fois acheté, je n’ai pas pu quitter le magasin sans le porter, d’où la main lourde sur les accessoires.

Mais je m’assure de ne commettre aucun fashion faux-pas en ajoutant des éléments casual : un jean déchiré, et une chemise que j’ai nouée à la taille. Trop accessoirisée peut-être, mais over-dressed, jamais !

  4. What a great outfit! I love the hat-it certainly brings all the elements together. I was always anxious about wearing a hat as it makes such a statement and often makes people stare, but seeing how good it looks in you? I'm going to give it a try.
    I'm certainly guilty of piling on jewellery...I know the rules (take one thing off before you leave the house) but I like them so much I find it hard to chose some and leave others behind!

  8. I'm a very minimalistic accessorizer myself mainly because accessories often seem a little impractical. When I go out for dinner, for example, I always catch myself taking off my watch without even realising, because it's always in the way of me and my food ;) So I don't even bother with bracelets..I'd take them off eventually anyway..haha..

    I love the way you accessorize though...it's very subtle, elegant and even practical. And I adore the way you wear your shirt....looks very cool :)

  9. Super canon, j'adore ton look :))
    Personnellement, j'ai tendance à "sous accessoiriser" vu que je ne mets que très peu de bijoux mais j'essaye de me corriger car comme toi, je trouve que ça change vraiment une tenue
