HAVE YOU HEARD OF BEAUTY BUNDLES?
Beauty Bundles are all about accessories. I first read about beauty bundles in Fashion Makeover 30 Days to Diva Style by Brenda Kinsel.
Accessories play an important part in creating a stylish outfit. They create interest and focal points as well as changing the look of an outfit for different occasions.
A beauty bundle is a group of accessories that relate well together. The accessories in a beauty bundle could include:-
- bracelets / bangles
HOW TO CREATE A BEAUTY BUNDLES
This is a great way to think about the jewellery you have and how you can wear it. Many people have their jewellery in boxes and very easily forget what great pieces they have.
- Look at your jewellery and sort into colour & metal groupings. It is important to remember that your jewellery relates to your Personality Style. If your jewellery is gold, silver and pearls then don’t think you have to rush out and buy bold coloured jewellery.
- Do you have shoes, scarves, hats that coordinate with your jewellery groupings?
- How does your jewellery colour groupings relate to the colours in your wardrobe?
- Think about how your jewellery relates to your lifestyle and outfit needs. Can it be worn for different occasions – casual, smart casual, semi casual or formal.
Let’s take a look at some of my beauty bundles. My wardrobe colour palette consists mainly of black, charcoal, grey & navy neutrals and teal, plum and red colours.
I only introduced navy to my wardrobe last year and now I can’t get enough of it.
I do not have a lot of red in clothing items but wear it a lot in accessories. It goes well with all my neutrals.
I am on the lookout for a red bag that is just right for me.
This colour is one of my all time favourites. I am always on the lookout for accessories and clothing in this colour.
It will be a magic day when I find more shoes in this colour. I will doing a happy dance.
This is my more formal beauty bundle. The bags are very special as they were made by my mum about fifteen years ago.
I wear these necklaces for more casual dressing as well by teaming them with other necklaces.
Creating beauty bundles:-

- adds value, versatility and variety for styling your outfits
- gives directions for what you are missing and might need to buy
- allows you to create different looks for different occasions
- is the most economical way to recreate different looks
