How to use accessories in an outfit

We all love picking out dresses, jumpsuits, and more, to wear to our next social events but accessories are just as important. The main part of the outfit is, of course, extremely important to get right but the small finishing touches are essential to your overall look. To find out how to use accessories in an outfit, carry on reading NADINE MERABI’s essential guide below.


First of all, when you’re wondering how to use accessories in an outfit, you must take all the considerations into account. This includes what the occasion is, like a wedding, a day of drinking with friends, a night on the town or even a christening.

You would also have to consider what you need to take with you, such as a phone, purse, and keys. Also, do you want to make a statement with your look? If so, an accessory that stands out from the rest of your outfit is key to achieving this aim.

Finally, the last consideration to take into account is which accessories will actually enhance your look. These are all key factors to think about when perfecting your outfit.

Accessory specifics

Learning how to use accessories with an outfit is key to perfecting your look at every social event. Sometimes, only a couple of small additions to your look can be the ideal finishing touch to your outfit. Pay attention to the specifics of your outfit, such as the neckline, silhouette and colour.

For example, if you’ve picked a plunging neckline dress like this MAYA Galaxy dress, you would want to wear a glamorous necklace to perfect the look. Pairing this particular dress with a pair of silver strap heels would be ideal, and help your colours sparkle under the moonlight and on the dance floor.

However, if you’re heading out for some more casual social occasions, like brunch or afternoon tea with your friends, you’ll want to look cute and chic. Consider wearing some high-waisted shorts, such as KARLA green shorts, and pair them with a matching blazer. At NADINE MERABI, the KARLA blazer is the ideal item to pair with these high-waisted shorts.

But, what if you’re attending a wedding and you’re going for a more elegant and understated approach to your appearance? Most people go straight for a dress as a wedding outfit, but what if you considered a jumpsuit instead? The COLETTE black jumpsuit is an understated yet sophisticated jumpsuit that is perfect for wearing to a wedding. To avoid potentially pulling any attention away from the bride, groom and bridesmaids, wear a pair of black heels and add some elegant jewellery, like an heirloom necklace.

Accentuate one feature

When choosing accessories you will want to focus on one aspect of your look that you would like to accentuate. A good example of this  could be to add a belt to cinch you in at the waist. There are plenty of jumpsuits and dresses at NADINE MERABI that come accompanied by a belt that you can wear. Take our BELLA jumpsuit, for example. It looks just as good with or without the included leather corset belt, but if you want to accentuate your waist, you should wear it.

To show off your curves, add a skinny belt to your outfit.

Also, if you’re looking for a way to flaunt your hairstyle, you can draw attention upward with a stylish headband, or a small fascinator. As a final piece of advice, in order to draw attention to your face, you can strategically wear earrings and a necklace that not only showcases your beauty but also complements your outfit too.
