In order to create a stunning outfit, it’s crucial to pay attention to details. According to the old adage, “the devil is in the details,” but the truth is that good fashion stems from details as well. The latest “detail” worth noticing is a new duo: heels and jewelry. Heels and jewelry are often seen as the finishing touches for an outfit, but they deserve more thought, especially when paired together. In the 1980’s it was common for heels to match a bold necklace or pair of earrings. Although altered, the art of accessorizing with heels and jewelry has returned. To partake in the trend, follow the simple steps below.

1)      Sparkle

When it comes to creating a cohesive and complementary look, attention to detail is absolutely crucial. With the pairing of heels and jewelry, the smallest details are often the most important. Matching heels and jewelry is no longer solely about color. Instead, it is about sparkle. By opting for jewelry and heels that “match” by sparkling, it’s easy to create a cohesive look that can be worn again and again. To find shoes that sparkle, it’s not necessary to hunt down the red slippers from The Wizard of Oz. Instead, find shoes that incorporate elements of sparkle. From an accent of silver on the toe to a strap that shines, there are multiple ways to incorporate sparkle in footwear.

2)      Choose One

When working with footwear and jewelry, it can be tempting to opt for a full jewelry ensemble with earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and brooches. Resist the urge and focus on a single piece of jewelry as an accent piece. By choosing one piece of jewelry, it becomes a focal point. Even beyond that, one oversized statement piece can often pack more punch than seven smaller pieces combined. However, the most important thing to remember when working with heels and jewelry is that the footwear is an accessory in its own right. As a result, it’s crucial to match the heels and jewelry as you would with any traditional jewelry combination.

3)      Have Fun

Creating complementary ensembles is always a challenge, and it’s a challenge that is best met with optimism and laughter. Trends from the 1980’s and 1990’s have resurfaced and as a result, it’s the perfect time to create exciting and innovative outfits. Have fun with your ensembles and you’ll be sure to stun.
