Jewelry can make an outfit

While accessories are often afterthoughts, they can also be the starting point of a great ensemble. In fact, if you have a necklace or bracelet you really like, you may want to put it on before you select a semi-formal dress.

"When I get dressed, I'll start with an accessory, then put a look together very quickly," jewelry designer Ranjana Khan told Marie Claire magazine. "You can't be afraid of big, bold pieces. Just don't think so much about it. Look in the mirror, and if you're happy with the end result, head out the door."

Khan also advises women not to be afraid of wearing formal dresses in the daytime, as long as they are paired with casual accessories.

"I dress to please me. I like wearing evening in the daytime. The trick is to incorporate at least one dressed-down piece," Khan told the publication. "For instance, I'll wear a full-on embroidered, metal-studded skirt with a tank that's a sleep shirt. The tank washes down the skirt but still allows it to dance and sing."
