5 Ways to Use Linking Pieces to Improve Your Style
A linking piece is a single item of clothing or jewellery that links together the colours in an outfit. It is one way of making an mutli-coloured outfit look intentional rather than like you have just chosen some random items and thrown them one.
Linking pieces can link together different shade of a colour or neutral, multiple colours, or a mix of colours and neutrals.
Linking pieces can be almost any item of clothing or jewellery including shoes and handbags. Just we aware that when you put the handbag down it no longer works as a linking piece.
Here are some examples of linking pieces.
Link Colours in An Outfit 1: Using a Scarf
A scarf is a quick and easy way to link the colours in an outfit. Scarves are relatively cheap and you can wear them in winter and silk and sheer scarves can be worn in all but very warm weather.
Link Colours in An Outfit 2: Using Jewellery
Using a necklace, brooch, or earrings is another quick and easy way to link the colours in an outfit. It is a great alternative to a scarf in hot weather and works any time that you are not completely rugged up.
Link Colours in An Outfit 3: Using a Top
When using a top to as the linking piece, it is often easier to start with the top and then choose other items of the wardrobe to match. A top is a bigger investment than a scarf or costume jewellery, but is a great option if you have multiple items in your wardrobe in similar colours.
