You have the perfect Faviana dress, hair plans, and makeup. Now it’s time to complete your all American look with all American accessories! The all American style is all about bows, pearls, and tasteful accessories. If you’re going for a color scheme, think navy and red like the 4th of July! We have a complete style guide on how to accessorize and finish off your all American outfit for your next special event!
All American Accessories: Watch
Keep track of your time at your next event by wearing a watch! Stack with bracelets or wear alone, and you will look smarter and more put together. We won’t tell if you just use it for style – just don’t make a Cinderella mistake! It’s best to wear an old-fashioned analog watch when adding it to an all American look, as it looks cleaner than a bulky tech watch. For a more formal look, try metal bands as opposed to leather or sports watch bands.
All American Accessories: Hoop Earrings
Delicate hoops can instantly add some class to any outfit! Keep the hoops thin and smaller-sized so they aren’t too much and overwhelming. All American style is all about tasteful accents, combining basics for an overall put-together look. Make sure the rest of your jewelry coordinates with your hoop earrings, and decide if you like your look better with your hair up or down.
All American Accessories: Pearls
As Jackie Kennedy said, “Pearls Are Always Appropriate!” Look absolutely classy wearing pearls at your next special event! There are so many way to wear pearls – go with stud earrings, a delicate bracelet, or do a necklace. Depending on your dress, you can do a long strand, short choker length, or layered. Pearls instantly dress up any outfit. Basic pearl accessories are a great investment piece – they will never go out of style!
All American Accessories: Statement Necklace
Go glam with a statement necklace! Coordinate the colors with your dress or go with a clear or neutral color so you can definitely wear it again. A sparkling statement necklace instantly dresses up a basic outfit and takes it to the next level. Be careful of necklines when picking out your statement necklace – definitely try it on with your dress! Pair with matching simple earrings – you want the necklace to be the focal point so keep other accessories minimal. For an extra points on a put-together outfit, match your heels with your necklace!
All American Accessories: Heels
Don’t forget about the shoes! Add some sweetness with shoes with bows! Bold shoes are a great way to balance out a relatively simple look, pairing it with pearls or a statement necklace up top. Other shoes that would complete an all American look well would be patent leather nude heels, flats, or suede heels. Of course, the most important part of choosing which shoes you will wear is how comfortable you are – you want to be confident!
All American Accessories: Sun Hat
If it’s the right event and time of the year, a sun hat is a perfect accessory to finish off your outfit, especially if your event is a daytime garden or tea party. A sun hat will protect your skin and makeup from the sun and you will look effortlessly chic!
