Accessories: Are You A Maximalist Or A Minimalist? Most of us fall somewhere in the middle, I suspect. It depends on the day, the outfit, or the mood, but usually we have a leaning toward one extreme or the other.
Some of us stick to a couple of signature accessories, or we may like to layer them on. I am usually on Team Minimal, as my style is Modern/Casual/Easy. I sometimes stick a toe over the line to the more accessorized team, because I enjoy that look as well. My accessory idols are women who can make an outfit magical with an unexpected piece or two. A vest, a pair of tights, a scarf, and the net effect is wonderful.
Women who are always terrific accessory-lovers include:
I tend to rely on a few favorite bracelets, necklaces, belts and a couple of scarves. I don’t wear many earrings because my curly hair obscures them, and my ear holes have closed up, ouch. That said, I do have the mop of curly hair as a daily accessory, as well as a small collection of hairpieces. I’m not terribly creative with scarves. I will use one for a belt, and most def tuck one into my collar in NYC in February.
My favorite cool-weather accessory is patterned or graphic tights. They make me feel whimsical and light hearted, and I always get a comment or two.
I’ve also started wearing this fab wool hat from Tenth Street Hats, because it gives me a boho vibe that I love. They have very cool headwear, go give them a look. Also wonderful for days when your hair is behaving like a two year old.
Looking to the future of my accessories, I am into:
- Printed ankle socks with oxfords.
2. More hairpieces that completely change my look.
3. And shorter necklaces. Not quite chokers, but short enough to be easily seen in an open neck.
How do you prefer to accessorize? Minimal or all the way?
Keep joy in your heart, and stay fabulous, xo,
