How To: Accessorize

Hey, ladies! Alright, let's talk about something serious: accessorizing! You know those times where you put together the cutest outfit and you look in the mirror and you just know it's missing something but you can't pinpoint exactly what it is? Or you want to go just a little more chic and add some character but you have no idea which direction to go in? Well I'm here to help! Accessorizing can be overwhelming and confusing for sure and it's important to know which accessories to put with which outfit to get the vibe and style you're searching for. Grab a drink, sit back, and let's dive into some accessories!

1. Belts

Belts are a MAJOR key to accessorizing! Belts are the sun of the accessorizing solar system, if you will. Whether you're in a mini skirt, maxi dress, trench coat, or even just jeans and a tee shirt, belts can add soooo much style and character to your look! Keep it simple with a plain black or brown leather belt over some high waisted mom jeans (yes please!). Pop on an oversized graphic tee and tuck the front and BAM! You've got the vintage look everyone craves. For a more chic style, find an oversized belt buckle that speaks to your soul and pair it with a chic bodysuit or blouse and some casual block heels. I'm pretty sure you already know the point I'm getting at, but basically, you just need a belt.

2. Glasses

Glasses are a personal favorite of mine! Whether you're rocking sunnies or blue light glasses (my OBSESSION), they add so much character and they're a great way to show your personality! Personally I own probably 30+ pairs of glasses and I have zero shame because they all have their own look and vibe to set off a different outfit. For instance, a pair of blue lights like Hailey has on (below) are perfect for the office. They add so much chic and they also protect your eyes by adding some warmth through the lenses to battle harmful blue rays. You can go with a cat eye sunny to be SUPER chic and high fashion, but my all time favorite sunnies style is a pair of aviators! Aviators are so classic and go with basically any outfit you choose and they have the perfect shape for almost any face.

3. Hair Accessories

Who else is PUMPED about the scrunch trend coming back?! I know I for sure am! Scrunchies add the perfect girl-next-door style to your look - they're so cute and sweet but are also able to be chic and fashionable. They go perfect in ponytails, messy buns, or just to make a cute wrist accessory. Hair scarves are also ideal for adding a more high-fashion vibe, especially in the summer! Tie them around your bun or a loose ponytail for a silky and luxurious play on an everyday outfit.

4. Jewelry 

Another favorite! ...can you tell that they're all my favorite? Again, no shame here. Jewelry is such a must-have accessory! Whether you're into bracelets, rings, earrings, watches, necklaces, or anklets - there's a jewelry piece for EVERYONE! I'm more of an understated girl, so I typically stick to braided bracelets, simple rings, and of course anklets in the summer!

5. Shoes

Shoes are a classic accessory we all know and love! Given that (most of the time) you have to wear shoes, you may as well find a pair you absolutely adore. Here at emmer we have a ton of bohemian inspired shoes for you to choose from! Shoes are kind of our love language... don't judge us for loving a good pair of booties too much. You know you feel the same way.

But seriously, shoes are such an important piece to every single outfit! For a retro look, we love pairing our Veronica Booties with a pair of flare jeans and a graphic tee for a super vintage-chic look. More of a casual girl? No worries - we've got styles for you, too! With everything from rhinestone sandals to super simple espadrilles, there's an option for everyone! My personal favorites are the Josie Mules because they're soooo cute and still totally functional for everyday! I love the slightly western vibe the tan leather and studs give off but they're still super chic!

You're Ready To Go, Girl!

And just like that - you've got all the accessory knowledge you need to set off all of your outfits! What will your favorite piece be? Will you be the simple girl who shows off through her belt? Or be chic and step out with the season's hottest sunnies? Better yet, why not rock them all in one outfit! The more the merrier, right? Now all that's left to do is create your dream look and go out and stun them, girl!
