Keep in style accessories contest

The one thing I try to stress the most is personal style is a skill.  It can’t be bought and it should be easily expressed through what you wear.

I believe that accessories are what make a look so great. Again, it shouldn’t have to cost too much either! Mixing and matching designer pieces with less expensive things can really make an outfit work.

That being said, I am doing the first ever Bmore in Style ‘Keep in style’ contest! One lucky reader of mine will win one of the accessories (their choice) below.


Forever 21 Molded link cuff


Gauzy fashion scarf (more colors available)


Yarn trimmed chain necklace

    My personal style is the lumberjack look. Key elements: flannel and jeans. However, accessorizing with a knit hat completes the outfit, as I can’t drag around an ax, wood chipper or giant blue ox.

    Anyway, that purple scarf would be a great accessory for my Joe Flacco and/or Ed Reed jersey! By accessorizing, you make an outfit your own unique expression of yourself –whether you’re striving for the “game day” look, or the “getting the Christmas Tree” look!

    hmm, my personal style? I think it’s more of an earthy look. I go for the loose tops and earthy/neutral tones. I have a very simple look and I play it up with my accessories; it’s my way of expressing myself. A necklace or a belt could really make an outfit.

    My style is very simple and sorta preppy. I like solid shirts in pastel and cool colors with jeans. I wear the trends but not right away. I think a nice neutral bracelet would help complete my classic style.

    My personal style is hard to sum up because I like to explore a variety of looks but I would describe it as simple with a twist.

    It was Coco Chanel who said “Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.” I agree with Madame Chanel and I know that structure can be used to create unexpected looks. I also enjoy adding bold pieces, whether that is a studded dress or an interesting accessory that may provide a pop of color (I plan on buying a red heel that will accomplish just that).

    I also use the French way of dressing as a reference because they pull off a casual look with elegance and add a touch of luxury. For instance pairing a Leather motorcycle jacket with ballet flats and a silk scarf (the French have mastered the art of scarf tying). I use the Italian method of buying: invest in quality pieces that you will get a lot of use out of and will take good care of. So, naturally I am a fan of versatile pieces that I am able to layer, like my little black cotton tank dress that I wear over a white long sleeve shirt during the day and take off at night adding heels and jewelry.

    Accessories are important because they add visual interest to an outfit. Aside from expression they allow exploration of different styles without too much investment. They also have the transformative power of changing the mood of an ensemble or elevating your look.

    I am interested in the gold forever21 bracelet because it is bold and can spice up a simple outfit, especially for evening.
