Elevate Your Image, Tab's Tips

Never be under dressed again (16 point accessory rule)

You know that woman who looks all snazzy and put-together? There’s a good chance she’s following–whether she knows it or not–the 16 point accessory rule. It could also be “how to get dressed” or like this post, never be under dressed again. It’s a way to safe guard against looking plain or lacking personality. If you’re a woman who needs to be noticed and unforgettable, it’s the best way to get into the habit of dressing up and elevating your image. It will also help you wear all those scarves, necklaces, tights and belts you own!

FUN SIDE NOTE: My picture and this concept was featured here by Beauty Mommy.

It may seem odd to count each earring and each shoe but just go with it.

As you read through the list, be aware of how items add to your look like

  • glasses
  • a bag you’re carrying the whole time
  • pretty toes showing
  • a printed piece of clothing
  • a statement necklace

THOSE are the things that add to your over all look and without them, it’s also who you might look plain or even dowdy.

It’s also why women who wear what some might see as “a little much” are also the ones who garner attention and SCREAM personality.

Here’s an example based on what I wore Friday and, YES, I counted it up when I put it together! {I’d be honored if you pinned and shared!}

When you’re feeling a little “blah,” use this list to add items! If you’re already wearing a cute skirt and top, a few pieces of jewelry and fun shoes that you have enough on but you realize you’re only at, say, 12 points. Tie a scarf in your hair, throw on a cuff bracelet or paint your nails red and see how it elevates your look.

A side note, tattoos would also be a point or two and do add to your look. And if you’re wearing really funky glasses or a particularly loud print, that could mean you need one less bracelet.

The 16 point accessory rule becomes automatic over time. Until it does, post it in your closet and try it a few times. If you find it’s hard to achieve, go shopping.

A few items that elevate any outfit:

  • scarves
  • a fun bag
  • printed tights
  • bright lipstick
  • a cool belt
  • a wacky accessory

Maybe you could also use an update on your hair and makeup. It’s worth revisiting every now and then! 

When you’re fully dressed, I guarantee you’ll receive compliments but even better, you’ll feel more put together and confident.
