How to Accessorise Dark Clothing with Bright Accessories

Adding in some simple, brightly coloured accessories can completely revive an ensemble, bringing it back to life. All of a sudden, your little black dress does not look so drab anymore with a red clutch, a pair of white earrings, and a gold bracelet.

A few ornaments in the hair not only draw attention to your face, but also complement your outfit. If your clothing is too dark, look for an accessory such as a hat, thick headband, or large bright pink flower to add some colour. The flowers clip into your hair and are great for a dressy night out, while a hat is perfect for cold weather.

A set of matching jewellery is always a good idea but mixing and matching is fun too. Dangling earrings come in all colours and sizes, so find ones with a colourful, yet stylish appeal.
