ACCESSORIES GUIDE; Jazzing up an outfit

Posted on

Five minutes before leaving the house, one final check in the mirror and there is something puzzling you. Your dress is crinkle-free and lustrous with every seam and stitch in place in the perfect shade of shell-pink but something is missing and it rattles unsettlement within you. What is it? What could it be?

Accessorising is an art for you to manage. Here are a few Marie-Chantal exclusive tips to add some groove to an outfit when we feel something is missing.

When in doubt, add a bow

Small, medium or large, at Marie-Chantal we believe a bow can sweeten anything up which is why every season we bring forward new colours and sizes and adorn our dresses with a delicate bow detail around the waist and on our cardigans. From the designing stages to photo shoots, when in doubt we put a bow into the mix and we call this our bow belief.

Shine from top to bottom

Never undermine the power of socks and tights. Not only do they keep those cute little ankles warm but they can empower an outfit, pulling it from dull to delightful. To determine which socks work with your outfit depends on whether you are wearing a dress, a skirt or a pair of trousers.

For trousers, we recommend ankle socks and for a skirt or dress, knee high socks and tights.

Add a drop of dazzle to your outfit with a pair of socks.

Good shoes take you to good places

Another Marie-Chantal mantra we chime is "good shoes take you to good places" and we believe it begins from a young age with endless adventures ahead, calling for a comfortable and reliable pair of shoes.

If you feel an outfit needs updating and finishing off with a wow, shoes are a staple you can turn to and we encourage finding a pair that embodies aesthetics with practicality.

Go far and explore and remember: a girl is always pretty in good shoes.
