Don’t over accessorize. Coco Chanel once said “before leaving the house, a lady should look in the mirror and remove one accessory.”
Think ‘balance’ – if you have an larger or more over-sized item of clothing on your top half, then keep it sleek and simple on your lower half.
Keep one item as your ‘statement piece’ and keeping the other pieces more on the basic side, for example keep the other pieces more monochromatic in colour or less loud in print.
Stay elegant by balancing shorter items with longer pieces, such as if the thighs are on show, make sure the cleavage is not!
