Do you love going to costume parties but hate the aggravation of getting the whole outfit together?

Sometimes it’s hard to piece together accessories around your costume or fancy dress.

You always want to make sure you understand these 5 head to toe accessory tips so you will never forget anything the next time you go to your next party.

#1 - Find The Perfect Jewelry

The costume you have chosen to wear for your next party determines what kind of jewelry you should be wearing to create a glamorous look to support your outfit.

Whether you want to be a beautiful princess, or a sexy flapper girl from the 20’s, you always want to remember the appropriate jewelry to wear.

Sometimes less is more.

Just because you have it doesn’t mean you should wear it. Find the perfect jewelry to compliment your next costume in a way that makes you stand out and turn heads.

#2 - Pick The Best Hair Decor

In picking out the best hair decor for your outfit you must understand the costume design and style.

You have several choices to compliment your fancy dress, here are a few to think about:

  • Headband
  • Beret
  • Feathers
  • Pins
  • Hairpiece or wig

For example, if you have chosen to dress as the sexy flapper girl from above you will want to make sure to get an eloquent headband and dress it up with a feather in the band.

If you are focusing on time-related costumes like this one, or the 50’s girl outfit, you want to fix your hair accordingly to that time period, as well as the hair accessories that goes along with it.

#3 - Make The Right Leg Wear Decisions

Most women don’t consider the leg wear options as an accessory.

More than likely they consider it as a necessity than anything. However, making the right leg wear decisions can be both sexy and attractive and add to your fancy dress costume.

Which one of these hosiery options will make your costume look great?

  • Knee highs
  • Thigh-highs
  • Fishnet stockings
  • Diamond studded hose

Picking the right hosiery can make your outfit classy, sexy, fun, and stylish.

#4 - Don’t Forget The Makeup & Nails

Whether you’re going for a fresh clean look or a dramatic night out on the town look, you want to have the proper makeup which will always bring out the personality in your costume.

You should understand which colors work the best with your skin tone. Here’s some makeup options for you to look into:

  • Heavy eye makeup - for a dramatic look
  • Fake eyelashes
  • Face makeup like diamonds, rhinestones, or sequins

Couple this with the right colors for your nails and you have the perfect combination of flirty and fun with your next costume.

#5 - The Shoes Finish the Ensemble

As with anything, the shoes are the foundation of your costume. They are the finest touches that end the head to toe look for your outfit.

Do you want to feel comfortable? Or do you want to feel sexy?

Can you do both and still have the perfect pair of shoes complimenting your costume?

Sure you can!

If you’re wearing a sexy pair of shoes you can’t walk in, unfortunately this will not be sexy in the end.

Although picking out your shoes may be a little more time consuming, you want to be able to walk in your sexy pair of shoes and be comfortable. Trying on some stiletto heels, high heeled pumps, or whatever shoe your fancy dress calls for would be an ideal thing to do before deciding what shoe you’re going to wear.

After all, the shoes are the final touches to ending your amazing head to toe look. Do you have some suggestions you would like to tell us? Perhaps you have a secret about costume accessories others would benefit from? We would love to hear about them!
