I don't believe in over accessorizing. I actually takes away from the look you are trying to portray, so you will be all over the place.

Simple, all the way. I admire people who are great with accesories, but I´m not. I´ll only wear the occasional bangle and a ring I never take off or a funky hairband and that´s about it.

One really great accessory is all you really need to make an outfit great. If you wear too many they all compete for attention and make it much harder for one to stand out.

The over the top accessorizing is trashy it doesn't look good wearing bracelets,a head bands,earrings,a necklace,and a pin.It looks tacky,i prefer to just wear my cocktail ring and my pearls!

You can over-accessorize and under, it really depends on your intention when pulling it all together. There should always be a point to what you are wearing, and how you are expressing yourself that day. Your personality should shine through whether you are wearing a simple pendant necklace or bold cuffs. If the jewelry you've chosen overpowers the overall scheme, then it's too much and we no longer see YOU because of all the distraction. And occasionally, if there is something you could have selected that would have enhanced the mood of your ensemble but you opted out, well then next time you wear that same outfit, give that bit of drama a go. It's always nice to try something new every once in a while.

I like multipul bangles and blinged out diamond earrings. Then there are time where I like to wear no earrings or bangles, but a tiny little necklace.

Under. If you're wearing too many, there's no focal point to an outfit.

I would rather under accessorized because sometimes you can just look so ridiculous with a thousand peices of jewerlly!

I love accessories and think they can really jazz up an outfit. But if I had to choose between being over-accessorized or under-accessorized, I'd choose under-accessorized for sure. Simple is always better than over-the-top. At least, in my opinion.

I buy tons of accessories, but I don't think I wear that many at once. If I wear long earrings, I don't wear a necklace. Recently I have been wearing a few big rings and a ton of bangles, but that's about it. I like my clothes to be the focus.

When I'm wearing a really simple outfit, I like to over accessorize.

I think whatever works with what you're wearing, some actually need a little extra bling.

I love when I see other women completely accessorized but personally I tend to keep it simple ~ otherwise I end up looking in the mirror and feeling nuts! lol
