LOOK BOOK: SPRING 70'S INSPIRED TREND VOLUME 2

THE POWER OF ACCESSORIES


Hey ladies and gents J
I am happy to finally publish my first look post for October which is going to be very short and sweet because, there will be tons happening over on the other pages right here on the blog. I hope that you saw the giveaway happening over on my Facebook page in conjunction with Mangwanani spa in awareness of cancer month.  However, if you didn’t then don’t worry, you can still enter away and share this opportunity with all your friends.

ABOUT MY LOOK
Lawrence a.k.a Larry from Larry Sparks Photo and media shot this look not too long ago in Long Street, Cape Town. Before the sunset and the places getting very busy we took the chance and actually got some pretty good images for you. I thought of emphasising on accessories and touching a little bit more on the 70’s trend which I spoke about in my previous post and while it is still the topic for spring. I am the type of person who has that standard set of accessories for the everyday look which normally consist of metallic to keep my look simple, classic, sophisticated yet still edgy. However, I find that the key to accessories is that it can either make or break your outfit like your shoes.

Therefore, it’s extremely important not to over accessorize unless your outfit has been put together in order to do so. You’re probably wondering, so how do I dress to over accessorize Miss2Beesy? Well, I find this very simple and would suggest this rule: When your outfits mainly consist of prints, bright colours etc. then do not over accessories and only opt for  simplistic neck pieces, bangles or earrings. This will prevent your outfit being to over bearing and becoming a fashion “no-no”.  My second rule would be when your outfit consist of a plain shirt, dress etc. in monochrome colours then go for stacked neck pieces or bangles. Normally for this look I would opt for metals to add a whole lot of edge.  


In this specific shoot I opted for many accessories to blend into my outfit's monochrome colour scheme. I had a very plain outfit and used only accessories to do all the work by adding the maroon hat.
