Making a statement

There's a lot to be said for accessories.  They amp up basics and give simple outfits personality. As far as I'm concerned when it comes to accessories it's go big or go home.  Dainty pieces are not me.  My oversized accessories fall into three categories - belts, jewelry and scarves. 

Lacking any semblance of a waist, I rely on belts to create curves.

Prada

Ferragamo
 
I go large with jewelry as well.  Cuffs are a personal favorite and rarely a day goes by that I don't wear one. 
 
Tory Burch
 
 
 
 
 
Necklaces and rings also get the oversized treatment.  The trick is to choose a focal point - one large piece at a time.
 

 
 
 
Scarves are a new obsession and one that I'm finding can be very versatile.  A beautiful scarf can take the place of a necklace.  Google ideas for scarves and you'll find ways to use them you never thought of, everything from halter tops to sashes.

I'm trying to have a new approach to my wardrobe which is to buy fewer clothes and more accessories.  I'm not sure the wallet is spared but the variety of looks created makes up for it!

The Prada belt is awesome, and one day, I would love to have a YSL ring. I like the one pictured, but my fave is the version with the single, chunky stone in the middle.

The YSL arty rings are pretty, too. They come in so many colors now.
