A FIVE MINUTE FIX: HOW TO CHANNEL YOUR INNER NICOLE RICHIE

Accessories create attitude and deliver your point of view.

A grilled chicken breast is blah. But, when you layer it with parmesan, fresh basil, mozzarella, peas and a zippy marinara sauce, you’ve got a savory chicken parmesan meal. The same notion applies to style. The confluence of style elements is what transforms random combinations of garments into A LOOK. The key? Pulling it all together. Dramatic counterpoints are what will bring your outfit to life. My signature style-Ali McGraw -meets JLo – is all about accessorizing. I don’t have hours to get ready. Or, a gigantic wardrobe. What I do have is an impressive array of wow factor. When women have quality basics–their uniform–all they need are eye popping accessories like jewelry, scarves, belts, hats and shoes to elevate, say, a simple sheath dress into a Boho-fab Nicole Richie worthy ensemble. The five minutes that it takes to pop on the two necklaces, scarf and earrings is difference between ho-hum and high wattage. And, when speaking of accessories, bigger is almost always better. Diminutive pieces are cute for children. But, they don’t really succeed in elevating a garment into something fabulous. In order to be eye catching, it needs to be big enough to make a statement
