Modest Genie Costume

Modest Genie Costume

 

As much as Halloween can be a fun excuse to wear something sexier than usual, sometimes you have to try to be modest. Especially if you’re the designated door answer-er! Stay covered up, yet sexy in this genie costume. First, find a pair of layered shimmery harem or belly dancing pants. Pick up the accents in the pants with a gold or yellow satin corset. It will shape your body, boost your bosom and add a bit of sex appeal without showing too much skin! For extra assurance in covering up, add a silk chiffon scarf to wrap around your shoulders when you answer the door. Slip on a pair of shimmering crystal embellished heels and finish with a matching rhinestone crusted clutch bag!

Crystal Stud Peacock Motif Hard Box Clutch

Using an accessory as a focal point can be beneficial when it comes to creating different looks. Create multiple styles of outfits with this peacock hard case clutch.

Accessories possess a world of power. They can compliment an outfit, make certain elements of an ensemble pop more effectively, and they have the power to steal the show if desired. An entire outfit or look can be altered with the use of accessories, whether you are using jewelry, shoes, scarves, hair accessories, hats, purses, or any other number or combination of items to complete your look. Fashion accessories are a lot of fun as well, you can choose to use the piece to make a statement, use it to inspire the look and color scheme of your look, or use it to invoke a certain feel to your outfit. This  can do any of these aforementioned things and do so with class.

The peacock motif itself is fabulously vintage. It hearkens back to the speakeasy and underground club scene of the roaring 20’s and adds a hint of this old school glamor no matter what you’re wearing. Using this clutch as a focal point of inspiration for a formal outfit seems the most logical. Depending on the color of bag you choose, gold, silver or black, you can match it with a metallic or sequined dress. Or you can simply use it to accent a vintage styled or retro find dress in most colors, though jewel-tones work particularly well (especially those found in a peacock’s feathers, such as teal, deep blue and purple). Use rhinestone studded cocktail jewelry to complement this clutch and further push that romantic vintage feel.

Another way to use this piece is to do so in stark contrast. Pair this clutch with a sleek, modern dress in a simplistic color or in a bright and bold statement color like radiant orchid. This way, the bag will stand out and make a statement that offsets the dress in both style and design while complimenting it at the same time. The contrast in the material of the dress, whether it’s satin or any other dress that offers a sleek silhouette, and the textured surface of this hard box clutch, from its grid like rhinestone insets to its large peacock motif closure. When worn in this style, the peacock closure can make a larger impact, standing out against the smooth material of your ensemble.

There are plenty of ways to manipulate a statement piece to create multiple looks. Mix and match, experiment and see what works. You never know what combinations may work out for you and make your next signature style.

Peacock Motif Clutches

The peacock pattern is simultaneously elegant, unique and complex. Use this classic motif to inspire or add some oomph to your outfits.

A clutch is one of the best ways to add some oomph to your look. These fashion accessories not only hold your basic essentials, but they have the power to make a statement despite their small size. There is no commitment involved, they can be taken off or added to an outfit just as easily, and they can be mixed and matched just as quickly and effortlessly. One such powerful clutch purse is a peacock motif clutch. Whether they feature peacock feathers, the feather design, or merely mimic their colors, this purse is sure to turn some heads and add some serious depth and dimension to your ensemble.

This sort of bag can be used in multiple ways. The first, and easiest, way is also perhaps the most useful. A purse like this definitely makes a statement but is simultaneously bold and timeless all at once. This motif hearkens back to that Old Hollywood glamour that is always in style and always appropriate. It can be added to monochromatic evening wear as well as casual wear. Use it to add some oomph to a more casual date outfit or wear it with your favorite little black dress. In these instances, the bag will add some character to your ensemble while your clothing can remain simplistic yet timeless. The colors do a lot to bring depth and dimension to a look, even if it is basic or simple, and will dress it up by association and close proximity. When paired with simpler colors and simpler ensembles, this clutch really becomes the focus of the outfit yet also enhances your outfit at the same time.

In a different vein, you can decide to use the bag to inspire your desired outfit. The peacock motif is known for its signature colors, consisting of deep blue, indigo or purple, and teal, more or less. These three colors can be used to influence your choice of additional accessories as well as influence your other pieces of clothing. For instance, choose one color you want to focus on from the pattern, such as the dark blue. Choose a dress, top or pant in this shade and this will seamlessly blend your outfit with your clutch. You can add accessories that match the remaining colors but remember that subtle accents can really go a long way. Similarly, you can simply pair this clutch with accessories that match one of the colors in the pattern to create a complete look.
