If Santa (or the 'rents) didn't get you a whole new wardrobe for the holiday season, no need to freak. If you're on a budget (and who isn't?!), keep it simple this new year. Adding new makeup and fun teenage accessories can turn that old frown of an outfit upside down!
You know the feeling all too well. It's six in the morning, your hair is up in a towel, you have to be out of the house in, like, 20 minutes (looking perfectly cute in the perfect outfit with the perfect hair), and you're ripping through drawers and closets because you have NOTHING to wear! Drama! Believe me, this happens everyday ALL over the world.
The thing is, you don't need to have a trust fund to give yourself a makeover—just a little creativity with teenage accessories.
Accessories, especially teenage accessories, are always big, whether it be the 1880s or the 21st century. This year, if you're going to shop for necklaces or bangles, you have to go big. Necklaces can run you about $7 to $30.
Chokers and dainty necklaces are out. Opt for long, chunky links or beads to have the hottest teenage accessories.
Stacking a bunch of bangles up your arm will give a cool and eclectic look. Make sure each bangle is different. If you're more of a simple gal, just wear one. They come in all different shapes and colors, so they'll fit your style easily. Buy a few in a color that can go with any outfit, like black or brown, and then throw in one in a different color. This way, they'll go with just about anything. Bangles cost anywhere from $5 to $25, so you won't break the bank to get your favorite teenage accessories.
Rings are in the same price range, but you'll really only need one. Remember those tacky—and gaudy, if you will—rings your grandma embarrassed you with by wearing them out in public? Well, you'll find yourself purchasing one this year. Any ring with a lot of bling or a huge flower will dress you up just right.
If makeup makes you stressed out because you feel like you have to buy 10 different shades, calm down. CoverGirl® has figured it all out for you. Go to any drugstore and you'll find CoverGirl's Custom Color Compacts. You get a blank kit and pick and choose four eye shadows to put in it. Or pick two eye shadows, a lip gloss, and a lip color—your choice! Choose from super-flirty shades such as Shimmering Onyx, Aqua Paradise, Pink Chiffon—the list goes on. The Custom Color Compact will give you the style flexibility you need. Plus it's small enough to shove in your bag, complimenting the rest of your perfect teenage accessories!
So, no matter what you're wearing, just add a fab necklace, some cool bangles, a huge blingalicious ring, and some new makeup to round out all of the best teenage accessories! You'll be a hit and still have enough moola to go to the movies Friday night!
