Confidence comes from focusing on your strengths. When you want to look your best, it’s smart to emphasize your best features whether that includes your slender legs or your piercing green eyes. Here is a guide to using accessories to highlight your very best features.
1. Show off your legs with nude heels
When your lean, gazelle-like legs are your strong suit, make them the center of attention. When it’s warm out, go for skirts and dresses above the knee and nude heels. These shoes are super flattering and look great in the summer, which is why you see so many celebrities wearing them. Try the Steve Madden Stecy Sandals for an extra barely-there appeal.

2. Make your eye color pop with jewels
Go for jewelry that will emphasize your eye color and bring them to center stage. If you’re going for a soft, classic look, then pearls can provide a pleasant contrast with brown eyes. For green eyes, grays and silvers will give you that elegant look that will upgrade your look. And when it comes to baby blues, you don’t want to overpower them. Delicate gold earrings will look flattering but soft enough to make your eyes the star.
3. Accentuate your lips with color and shape
Applying a shimmery highlighter to your cupid’s bow will make it pop. You can also emphasize your lips by carefully using lipstick to refine the shape, whether you want your lips to look fuller, poutier, or just want to try something new.
Dark lipstick colors like oxblood will make you turn heads, while classic red with a chic cat-eye is always in style. MAC is renowned for their wide selection of long-lasting, statement hues.
4. Emphasize your shape with belts tied at your natural waist
Want to emphasize your shape and waist? Go for a belt flatteringly placed at your natural waist. If you’re going for leather, steer toward super thin belts in blacks and browns over a skirt or loose-fitting dress to give your look more definition.
5. Add a choker to flatter a long neck
While chokers may not look the best on shorter necks, you can easily rock them when you have a long neck. Go for a slim velvet choker for a classic look. For a unique, bohemian look, opt for the crochet choker. Slim, minimalist chain necklaces like Hope Ave create a similar effect if chokers aren’t your style.
If you want to upgrade your look, bring the drama to your favorite features. You’ll feel more confident, and all eyes will be on you.
