Smarter Style: Accessorizing Magic

Do you know one of those women who just sort of always look great and you can't put your finger on why? She's probably skillful at accessorizing. It's the great underused style skill.

Personally, I am terrible at accessorizing; I have a terror of looking like I am trying too hard, which means, of course, that I rarely look like I tried at all. I need to get over that...a great bracelet will cost a lot less than a great dress or pair of shoes, and I can wear it every single day and call it my "signature piece" if I want. Plus, you can play with looks with accessories a lot more easily than you can with clothing. Take a black T-shirt and jeans and you can be a hippie one day with woven bracelets and a hemp purse, a rock star the next with a leather cuff and chains, or a glamorous urbanite with heels and diamond studs (fake, if you prefer) another day.

I'm lucky...my mom makes jewelry and she'll use me as a guinea pig a lot when she's trying out a new technique. That means I have lots of pretty things hanging around. And my kids are past the age when anything I wear ends up in their hands and more than likely being destroyed. Style resolution: I'm going to add at least one accessory whenever I'm leaving the house. Who's with me!?

Are you good at accessorizing or do you struggle?

I have my own style... I love to accessorize but I wouldn't say I follow the trends.

I'm very conservative with accessories because I'm scared of overdoing it & looking like a child playing dressup.
