If you happen to be fashion-savvy, you know an outfit is only as good as the accessories. Even if your hair is behaving, your nails and brows are clean and polished, and your dress is turning heads–something could still be missing. Add some frost to your Sugar, Baby! This is a comprehensive Sugar Baby accessory guide.
Make A Statement
In the words of Rachel Zoe, “I see bold accessories as a woman’s armor.” We want you to POP when you leave the house. A great way to upgrade an outfit is to add a statement necklace. It should be large enough to dress up the outfit, but not so bulky that it draws all the attention away from the whole package. Pick a necklace that sends your personal message to the world. If you have an average, dark-toned outfit, this is your greatest ally.
Down To Earth
As a titan of the fashion industry, Ralph Lauren knew what he was talking about in saying, “Fashion is about something that comes from within you.” Maybe you shy away from “overly-glam” look and you prefer the hippie, boho-chic accessories.
This is great! Be sure to pair earthy beads with gold metals. If you’re feeling bold, you can even add a feathered headband to elevate your ‘do. For an overall theme, pair these with patterned pants or a flowy dress.
Karl Lagerfeld, always quick to the point, once said, “Trendy is the last step before tacky.” Heed this warning Babies! What you’re going for here is “edgy.” With this angle, if you choose a unique enough accessory, you might even be able to forgo all other accessories.
Think like Lady Gaga, who only needs one or two semi-bizarre additions to her outfit to make it “trendy.” The point is to bring the outfit to it’s full potential, not to distract from it. Toss a leather jacket into the mix and you’re on the edge of glory.
Sweet and Simple
“Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.” You’d think this came from someone in the fashion industry, but Leonardo Da Vinci actually spoke these words. If you’re wearing a delicate outfit, it may be better to go with delicate accessories.
A necklace with a thin chain and a single pendant is enough to dress up a simple outfit while accentuating your collarbone. Pair that with a thin bracelet and sweet, small earring studs and you’ll be on your way. Be sure to add a bright clutch to mix things up.
What a Gem
Considering she was an icon for beauty, elegance and all things sexy, we believed Marilyn Monroe when she told us, “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.” If you’re not looking to break the bank, cubic zirconia can work well here—if they’re small and subtle.
If you own real diamonds, then that’s all your wardrobe truly needs: a genuine, dazzling diamond. If, however, you’re rockin rhinestones, it’s best to stick with small ones. You still get the bling without becoming tacky.
Pearls of Wisdom
Of course I have to quote Coco Chanel. We’re talking about fashion, after all! “A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls.” This is a classic look that never fades. If you’re attempting to tone down a sexy outfit, while maintaining appeal and class, pearls are the way to go.
If you want to exude sophistication, pearls are the answer. However, you must be cautious when choosing this accessory. If you pair it with the wrong outfit, you’ll end up looking less like Jackie Onassis and more like Betty Crocker.
There you have it, ladies! For all personal styles, there is always an accessory that will bring your outfit (and confidence!) to the next level. One key thing to keep in mind going forward: make sure not to over-accessorize, or it will come off looking tacky rather than tasteful. Happy Sugaring!
