Accessories are to fashion as 2Pac is to the rap game – important. They shouldn’t be underestimated but more often that not they’re difficult to get right. It can be surprisingly easy to end up looking like a member of the Ndebele tribe jingling with every step (the Ndebele fashion is very chic but dare I say slightly impractical for most of us), or to cause anybody who comes into contact with you to become cross-eyed because there’s so much happening in such a small space.
I was consistent with my accessories today, sticking to one colour (cheat #1), gold, and committing to a style (cheat #2)- I’ve gone for gypsy gangster.
Note: If you don’t dress yourself in the morning with a style in mind or mindset, you’re doing it wrong. Pick a style and channel it. E.g. I’m feeling the Rihanna Mentality today, in which case… *picks lace up sandals, basketball shorts, mesh crop, canary yellow chinchilla jacket, 27 rings, and gold hoops*.
In case you need some inspo with styles to aim for every morning, here’s some to start you off:
- Rihanna Mentality
- Elle Woods pre-Law School
- Elle Woods during Law School
- Kim K-West post North’s birth
- Anna Dello Russo
