Wear your watch over your sleeve

Don’t hide your watch by wearing it under your sleeve. Today nobody really needs a watch as everyone checks the time on their cell phone. Thus, when you wear a watch wear it as a statment and show it off. Another advantage, you avoid the funny watch bump in your sleeve.

Brooch worn at the waist

Instead of wearing the brooch on the top of my dress, I pinned it at the waist. It creates interest because of the unusual place. It works because it looks like a belt on first view.

Scarf knotted as a tie

Wear your scarf as tie outside of the coat. In the outerwear outfit, the scarf is worn in a way that it looks like a wide tie. The print of the scarf picks up the camel brown of the hat, brown of the booties, and tights, the dark chocolate of the shearling and the green of the gloves and bag.
