Get It Now: Chopping It Off

October 7, 2013 • Get It Now, Magazine


With Beyonce and Miley both publicly chopping their hair and shunning the long lustrous styles that are typically associated with feminine sex appeal, short hair has never been more popular. However, whether you have already made the move or are just thinking of cropping your locks, you are going to want to adjust to your ensembles accordingly.

High Collars
While high necklines can be extremely flattering regardless of hair length, with shorter hair a turtleneck or other high collar can provide added flair that will fill in the gap. This Gareth Pugh coat is a perfect example of a style that would add even more innovative drama to a short cut.

Big Earrings
Larger accessories become more obvious with short hair, and these Juicy Couture earrings are the perfect style to work with many outfits but also make quite an impact on their own.

With short hair, your necklace takes center stage. A colorful piece like this Kate Spade necklace is perfect, and the turquoise hue works on almost every complexion.

A seriously fierce scarf like this Alexander McQueen number is the perfect way to set off a short chop, and the red and orange are flattering to most skin tones.

Bright lipstick or bold eyes really show off a crop; for instance, a bold shade such as Nars Jungle Red is perfection with short hair.
