Wouldn’t it be great to be chic and glamorous? Wouldn’t it be great to be the one who always has the trendiest outfit or look? You may be scrolling through images on Pinterest, fashion websites or your friend’s feed on social media and are wondering what those girls have that you don’t.
Image goes a long way toward affecting how we perceive others and vice versa. While you may be tempted to deny it, your fashion choices go a long way in influencing various aspects of your life. One study by Forsythe in 2006 showed that fashion choices influenced the ability of the person to be effective in their given position while another by Hill and Burton in 2005 showed that it even influenced the outcome of sports matches.
It’s in the details
You don’t have to spend an arm and leg in purchasing expensive and trendy outfits to achieve a chic or glamorous look. The secret that many fashionistas won’t tell you is that it all lies in the details. If you take the time to truly examine many of the styles you admire so much, you’ll notice that many are a result of carefully thought out combinations and accessories.
Accessories are especially important in achieving that special touch. They will not only affect the way the outfit looks but also go a long way in boosting your confidence, which in turn will improve your image.
In a society so heavily invested in self-esteem and self-image, it’s ironic that self-esteem is at an all-time low. According to Dr. Carolyn Coker Ross, more than 80 percent of women are unhappy with their body image and over 10 million have developed eating disorders as a result. Many undergo surgical procedures to alter their images.
While you may not be happy with your self-image at the moment, the remedy may be as simple as learning how to make use of accessories for the best effect.
How to wear a gold heart necklace
When it comes to accessorizing with jewelry, it is all about how you wear the piece as opposed to the actual value of the piece. If you want to achieve the best results from your gold heart necklace, consider the following trendy ways to wear it:
Gone are the days of the short necklace that closely clasped the neck. Long necklaces are trendy now. You can wear your necklace long with several pendants or a single pendant. This look is great for any occasion, formal or informal.
One is never enough. Consider layering necklaces for a boho-chic effect. You can layer several pendants on a single necklace or layer several necklaces to achieve volume. Play around with different looks and see what suits you. Try layering necklaces of different lengths or pendants of different metals, shapes and sizes. This look works for both formal and informal occasions.
- Different tones
Your necklace doesn’t have to be all white or yellow gold. Try wearing two tones (e.g. a pendant of white gold on a necklace of yellow gold). This is really fashionable today. The trick is in balancing the two pieces and colors of the metal. Breaking rules is the way to go today.
- Wear it for informal occasions too
Gold necklaces are associated with formal events. However, you can still use the piece to add some glamour to your outfit at a casual occasion. All you have to do is dress it down. A pair of jeans and a t-shirt can help you create a hip look when accessorized with some bling.
- Go retro
Modern heart shaped necklaces look fabulous when paired with other antique jewelry pieces. Consider going vintage with the rest of your jewelry (e.g. wear an oversized cocktail ring or a pair of retro earrings).
Making small changes to your fashion choices can go a long way in changing your look. You can make a change as simple as adding a piece of jewelry and completely transform your entire look. You can gain the self-confidence you’ve been looking for.
