Accessories Guide for All Occasions

14

Accessories can completely transform your outfit, turning jeans and a T-shirt into a hip party outfit or your little black dress into a catwalk success. Knowing what is currently on-trend is one thing but understanding how to accessorize is an important skill because what works for a ladies who lunch date is not going to work for a dinner party.  Here is our accessories guide for all occasions. 

Casual Day Wear

Accessorizing during the day will lift an outfit, even if it is something casual.  A shearling jacket or a flowing white jacket and platform brogues will lift the simplest jeans and T-shirt combination to something special. An outsize army jacket and blue stilettos that add a little polish is another cool combination.  A blazer and sleek heels will turn the basic outfit into a sleek suit. For a glam look wear a crystal belt with a white t-shirt tucked into high-waisted jeans and add kitten heels or a satin bag to complete the look or a leather bucket bag with ankle boots also works well to become a hot, on-trend outfit. 

Lunch Dates

More than casual day wear, but not too over the top or revealing too much skin. Suggestions include dark jeans with a blouse or a knee-length skirt. Wear a couple of simple accessories that match, like earrings and a pendant necklace such as those sold by The Eternity Rose. Coordinate your shoes with your bag and belt for a more polished look. 

A leather wallet is a necessary accessory for lunch dates as it will show off your style when paying your bill. Neck scarves are on trend and are ideal for colder seasons. They are also extremely versatile being worn in different styles from a basic loop to a twisted necklace, from classic glamour to bohemian chic. Scarves with a Hermes style pattern are on-trend right now. 

Dinner Parties

A little black dress is a perfect outfit for a dinner party, but it can look a little dull without accessories. This is where you can become extravagant with your accessories for a unique look. Pick three key pieces you want to highlight your style, for example, one piece of jewelry such as a pendant, your shoes and your handbag. These three should all match in color or theme. Choose bold, bright colors or metallics and leave everything else simple. 

For office parties, a pencil skirt or dress pants, paired with heels and a silk top or a buttoned shirt works well, with simple jewelry that you would usually wear daily such as a classic watch or diamond earrings. 

For a dinner party with friends you can be more casual, but avoid denim, sneakers and T-shirts and instead wear dress trousers with patent leather shoes or a pair embellished with a bow, buckle or print. Here accessories should be minimal, perhaps a single pendant or a small logo tote bag. 

Night on the Town

When going to bars and nightclubs, a common error is to have too many accessories that take the focus off you. The classic little black dress makes for great cocktail attire and is the easiest to show your personality by accessorizing to suit your mood.  A clutch bag for your essentials and a classy piece of jewelry may be all you need. Alternatively, wear a shorter dress with some frill. 

White-tie and Black-tie events

For government ceremonies, weddings, the opera or other events flagged as being a white-tie or black-tie event, such as a charity fundraiser, a floor-length ball gown is a must. Accessorize with opera length gloves, glamorous jewels, and up-do hairstyles.  A very dressy cocktail dress may be acceptable depending on the venue of the event. 

If you are unsure about the precise codes for your dinner, ask the host for advice.  You can dress up in a long gown, cocktail dress, or sharp separates. Accessorize with the latest trends, such as feathers, sequins, sheer fabrics, and outsize coats and jackets to show off your personality in every detail.

For white-tie and black-tie events being held in warmer weather, keep the accessories a little more understated, such as for a cruise or an outdoor wedding.

About Greenland

Greenland is the largest island on the planet and the least populated country in the world. Most of the island is within the Arctic Circle, and the majority of the island is covered by the Northern Ice Cap, so the waters surrounding the northern shores remain frozen all year.
