I am a fairly recent cinvert to scarves, and now feel underdressed if I don't wear one with my jacket. I just can't choose and wear belts though, other than through beltloops on jeans. Would like to be able to wear one over a cardi.
Yes. I dress pretty plainly, so rely on accessories to add a bit of oomph. Always a scarf/shawl, chunky bracelets or bracelet stacks, and necklaces. Although I don't wear much colour, I love colourful accessories. It is amazing what just changing accessories does to an outfit.
I have an Alex Monroe rose gold shrimp I wear a lot, or a Mulberry fox head. I also wear my big rose gold Michael Kors watch and that's me done really. Sometimes I'll wear a belt and usually a scarf. Don't go a bundle on jewellery...
No, I wear the same silver jewellery all the time and never wear belts or scarves. I've tried scarves but they look cluttered if my hair is down (shoulder length), aging if it is up and they always shift about and end up looking untidy. I can't cope with bangles at all, they dig into my arm when I am writing or using the computer. I agree that accessories can make a big difference (and my few bits of silver are chosen with great care and are nice) but just don't seem practical for me.
I do love silk scarves and I have a jersey 1000 kisses scarf from avoca I like.I have many necklaces but seldom wear them .I like earrings not too dangly but quite sparkly.I like jewellery with birds on it
Love that necklace! I do like a scarf, although yesterday I managed to get my latest favourite one caught in the retractable dog lead, then after I'd freed it I twice caught it in the zip of my bag and finally got it tangled in a thorny bush on the way home from school
I like semi-precious dangly earrings which I get from The Peach Tree on Etsy (they're brilliant) and cozy cashmere and wool scarves in the Fall and Winter (with my beloved puffy vests). If I wear any other accessories I feel like a kid playing dress up, so I don't (even though I like them on other people).
