Your face is probably the first thing that people see when they look at you. Since people are most likely to make eye contact when they first notice you, they’re going to see your face and will typically judge your appearance from there. That’s why many people choose to wear a number of different facial accessories to help complement their appearance and give themselves a unique look. Accessories are great because they can add a lot of visual interest and excitement to an outfit. However, it should be noted that you can go overboard if you’re not being careful with your choices. Having too many piercings, earrings and a large pair of glasses can look a bit gaudy. It’s important to balance out your face accessories so that it’s not too extravagant and that it pairs well with your skin tone and the rest of your outfit. So in this post, we’ll be looking at some simple steps to help you accessorise your face to create a unique but balanced look.

Glasses are a focal point that you shouldn’t underestimate

You should think of your face as having a limited amount of space for accessories. In that sense, glasses can take up a surprising amount of “space” on your face due to their overall size. This means you shouldn’t be pairing glasses with too many accessories because it can detract from their appearance or create an unbalanced look. For example, if you have a pair of large glasses then you don’t want to wear large dangling jewellery and piercings at the same time. Doing so adds too many elements to your outfit and crowds your face with lots of items.

If you want to create a balanced look, you should allow your glasses to take centre stage. This means choosing a great pair of glasses that suits your face. You also shouldn’t be afraid of spending a little extra for your glasses, especially if you’re going to be wearing them all the time due to your vision. However, even if you don’t have a vision impairment, you can still wear a pair of frames with clear lenses that won’t change your vision.

When picking out a pair of glasses, it’s a good idea to go to a store and try them out if possible. However, the selection might be a little limited, so you could always consider buying online. You could choose here to find the perfect pair of glasses for your needs. There’s a lot to pick from when you start buying online, but you should measure your face to ensure that the glasses aren’t too big or small. If you need your glasses for correcting your vision, you should speak to your optometrist about your prescription. This is a series of numbers that details your level of vision and will help determine the type of lenses you need to help with your vision.

In short, if you wear glasses you should be letting them stand out. Don’t suffocate a beautiful pair of glasses by surrounding it with jewellery as it can look incredibly gaudy.

Hats can be a wonderful accessory to pair with your outfit

Another common accessory that affects the appearance of your face is a hat. There are lots of different types of pick from and you should aim to pick a hat or cap that goes with your outfit. For casual outfits, beanies and baseball caps are the go-to choices. They’re simple, they’re affordable and they come in countless different designs. For something that borders on casual and smart, you could also consider a bucket hat or even a fedora. However, these are a little more difficult to style and you generally want to build outfits around them because of their unique appearance.

For something a little more elegant, you can choose large straw hats and felt hats. These are great for keeping the sun out of your eyes on a hot summer day, but they’re also great for adding accessories and a splash of colour. Keep in mind that the more fancy your hat is, the more attention it will bring to your face. You ultimately want to keep your face balanced when it comes to accessories. If you’re going to wear a fancy hat, you should try to avoid adding too much jewellery to your face. This means no dangling earrings and no piercings if possible!

Alternatively, you can also choose casual caps and hats that go well with a number of different outfits. This includes newsboy caps, beret hats or even knitted caps. These offer a laid-back casual look that can enhance the appearance of your outfit.

Earrings and necklace jewellery

As with wearing any kind of jewellery, it’s important to focus on aspects such as metals, gemstones and size. First, if you’re going to wear jewellery with gemstones, you need to try and find colours that flatter your skin colour. For instance, cool skin tones work best with bright gemstones such as ruby, sapphire and emerald because it creates a unique contrast. However, if your skin tone is a little warmer, you should balance it with neutral jewellery such as white gold, silver, titanium and platinum. Balancing the colour of your jewellery with your skin is a great way to create a flattering appearance.

Alternatively, you can match your jewellery to your hair colour or outfit. Experimenting with different combinations can create a unique appearance, but the idea is that you want to pick colours based on what you want to bring attention to. For instance, if you want your jewellery to stand out then using coloured gemstones is a great idea. However, if you want it to take a backseat and make way for the rest of your clothes, then picking muted neutral colours is generally a better idea. This allows the jewellery to complement your outfit without overpowering it. This is why it’s often best to wear rather plain clothes if you have statement earrings that dangle and sparkle.
