I’m bringing back this accessory post from May of 2007 for Throwback Thursday because it goes hand-in-hand with the concept of the Facial Themes Analysis, which of course I did not know about when I initially wrote this.
Casually mentioning that dcrmom could use some fun earrings to anchor attention around her face when wearing the red top, I think I stumbled onto something. As highlighting the face is the most important task of any ensemble, there are probably lots of other ways to use accessories that can be added to my neckline advice to do the job.
Let’s just consider this brainstorming. I’ll go first:
- Pendant necklace: one that hits at the proper balance point. Bonus if the pendant shape echoes the shape and/or color of the eyes.
- Headband. In scale with the wearer’s facial features, color could be used to create a frame (by matching the top) or to focus attention on the eyes.
- When selecting earrings, consider where the shape of the earring draws the eye. While I’m fond of more dangly earrings, but they may not tend to draw attention directly to my face as much as my daughter’s little tiny studs that mimic her “sparkles” (what I call freckles).
Okay, now it’s up to you embellishment people:Â What are your best accessorizing tips?
