Nowadays, due to the coronavirus and Covid-19 pandemic, many of us are finding ourselves indoors within our own four walls for the majority of the time. We’re working from home. We can’t go out to socialise with friends and have to settle for video calls instead. We spend our free time and leisure time in our own living spaces. Often, the most we get out is to do our food shopping or to collect a prescription. As you can imagine, fashion isn’t the top of our priorities right now. Many of us are settling for pyjamas or loungewear for day to day wear, with slippers instead of shoes, and accessorising has gone out of the window. But this doesn’t have to be the case. If you’re missing getting dressed up and have some sort of video call appointment, or simply want to look nice when you do leave the house, you can still feel completely free to make an effort and throw a few accessories into your look. This will help you to feel a touch of normality and to feel good in yourself for a while too! Getting ready can take your mind off the pandemic and you can let your hair down and breathe for a while. Of course, accessorising isn’t always straightforward and can be difficult to get right. So, here are a few suggestions that will help you along the way!
Let’s start out with jewelry. Jewelry is something that you can wear every day and easily work into your look. It’s probably one of the easiest accessories to work! You can have subtle pieces of bold, statement pieces. Whatever you choose is entirely up to you. Just one piece of jewelry can be worn with an endless variety of different outfits as long as it’s a relatively simple and plain item. Others can contrast relatively plain outfits with bold designs, prints and textures, entirely making the outfit! Whether you like the look of bracelets or bangles, earrings, pre-owned Rolex watches, charm necklaces or anything else, give it a go and try them out. They could become a new firm favorite that you wear every single day! You may even want to wear a few items of jewelry at a time!
Another accessory to consider is glasses. Now, if you don’t need glasses, you might not be interested in this section, but you could always consider glasses with plain glass lenses rather than prescription lenses. If you do wear glasses for sight, you don’t have to settle on something dull. Instead, they could become a signature part of your look or a really standout accessory. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors, so browse the market and you may find something that you really love! Whether that’s cat eye shape, large and round, small and square or anything else. You may also enjoy a variety of colors and prints. While black or tortoise shell tend to seem the most popular, there are alternatives, including gold wire frames, pink, orange, patterned and more. Glasses can be a complementary addition to any look.
There’s a whole world of accessories out there – we really are only just getting started with this list – but hopefully, the above ideas will act as inspiration and get the ball rolling for you!
