Accessories can say a lot about you. While the same can be said about your general appearance, the clothes you wear are mostly dictated by the event and occasion, whereas with accessories, most of the time, you can pretty much get away with anything. Take this opportune moment of subtle rebellion, and make it count- here are what different accessories can say about you:
This is probably one of , if not the, most popular accessories out there, particularly for women. How many lockets are found at the bottom of rivers, how many crosses on chains are passed down through generations and how many letters of the alphabet are hung on the necks of of the starry eyed? A lot, and in the case of the last example, all 25, depending on the language. Most necklaces are pretty symbolic, and are tied to strong feelings or emotions and even motto’s. For necklaces like these, you can bet there would be a good story behind them, and if you wear em, tell em. Otherwise, there are also necklaces that are simply added onto an outfit to enhance it.
Bracelets are very similar to necklaces, in that they mostly have some sort of back story attached to them, but much less often. Chains and letters are common, as well as leather and even rubber. Ballers are bracelets made of rubber that sometimes have something written on them, and are used a lot for different organizations, foundations and charities. Bracelets are subtle, but effective, and can be seen as a little bit of additional effort when it comes to dressing up.
Ring are pretty cool. They’re small and discreet, they are easy to take off and keep in the pocket, and are a migraine and a half to look for when you drop them or forget that you left them beside the sink. They can also be a symbol of a bond, and nothing can really beat that, but that also makes it all the worse if you lose it. It’s pretty much a double edged sword that shines bright like a diamond. Rings can say a lot about you, depending on the style and design, as well as the finger you wear it on. There are rings with designs of skulls, snakes, butterflies and what have you, and chunky gold rings worn on the index and pinky fingers always require a cigar to go with it.
Now, these are all business. A watch can say a lot about you, despite being one of the most simple and functional accessories. It can say that you care about how much time you spend, that you care about being punctual, that you have important places to go to because you are pretty important yourself. A rolex sends its own message, one that is deserved by those who manage to get their hands on one.
Accessories are also great to collect, which will provide you with a small stock of options when you want to go out.
