Style File! Tip #43

When putting an outfit together ask yourself: "which piece do I want people to notice?" That piece is your FOCAL POINT. Whether it's a chunky necklace, a cocktail ring, or a printed blouse all the other items in the look should complement it not fight for the attention. Oversized earrings with and oversized necklace and an oversized cuff are just that: OVER!
If you must dazzle them more then once, section your body into thirds to give your admirers some breathing room. The 1st third starts at the top of your head and ends under your chest, the 2nd third is from under your chest to mid-thigh and the last third goes from mid-thigh to your toes.
Here's a suggestion on how you do it: wear a flamboyant hair accessory a la British Royalty (1st third) with an impressive cocktail ring (2nd third) and sky high pumps (3rd third) for a chic look done just right.

Just a thought...

"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in other; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."

- Audrey Hepburn
