It’s one thing I’ve always kind of ignored or not paid too much attention to. It all started when I was a child and realised that I was allergic to all my favourite watches and bracelets. My doctor told me that the only metals I can wear is silver, gold and titanium. I was relieved to know what the issue to all my problems was and I suddenly decided to get rid of accessories. It is a bit tricky because I do love accessories, I always admired those girls who use jewellery to change a whole outfit. But you see, I was never good at that because I couldn’t and still can’t wear much. At the moment I have a couple of watches I always change and my rings have been the same for more than a year now. I don’t usually wear earrings, unless I go out. And they all end up in my bag after a couple of hours, when the allergy starts to kick in and I feel uncomfortable.
But I’ve learnt how to play with outfits by keeping it simple with accessories. One trick of mine is: coloured/matchy shoes. Now this is where I like to have fun. Leopard prints, glitter, bright colours – I do have loads of pretty shoes that would make any outfit stand out. I do keep them for special occasions, but they are my accessories. Another favourite of mine is bags. My daily bags are colourful, but also practical. For someone who is not good at accessorising their outfit, all I can say is – invest in just a couple of pieces. Don’t spend too much on pretty things, they’ll end up in a closet. Pick colours that you love. And when you’re lost, just borrow some bits from your friends. Some of us don’t have time to change our bags twice a week, our watch every day and our bracelets on a weekly basis. And that’s okay.
