How To Pull Off Multiple Accessories

A good deal of the time, I don’t wear any jewelry. I’ve been increasingly obsessed with an outfit's lines and creating a silhouette. But when I put a few extra minutes into dressing myself and delve further into the jewelry tree/shoe collection/hair accessories, there are a few strategies I keep in mind to avoid looking cluttered, or confusing, or confused.

Brown + Brown-ish + Brown Pattern
Instead of trying to match accessories exactly (different dye lots probably foiled that mission long before it stared), choose rhyming color schemes and pieces with a bit of texture or variation in the palette, like these sandals ($55) and wooden necklace ($120). That way it won't look like your similarly-hued accessories clash. This is especially easy to do with neutrals – I’d wear these Natural Round Burwine Bangles ($60) with pretty much everything I own.

Whimsical + Clean + Classic
If you’re going to invest in an interesting piece of statement jewelry like J. Crew’s Crystal Starfish Cuff Bracelet ($150), you’ll probably want to make sure it gets more attention than your bag and shoes. The clean lines on this Patent Croc Clutch ($125) and simple flats ($60) won’t take away from the bracelet’s centerstage role.

Solid + Solid + Solid
Normally I would not advocate piling on three accessories above the neck, but when they’re all in solid colors and textures, the combo avoids looking cluttered. Plain black sunglasses ($105) and a ribbon headband ($14.50) let you show off simple brushed metal earrings ($28) with eyes protected and (perhaps unwashed?) hair off your face.
