Rings & Things: Down to Earth-y
For most of us enjoying summer in the city (read: in front of a computer), a breath of fresh air via some earthy accessories is a welcome occurrence. Behold: the allure of boho chic. We’ve got the Kates (Moss and Bosworth) to thank for mastering the art of channeling an effortless “I woke up like this” vibe while maintaining their reps as style icons. So we’re dialing up the “luxe” with a lavish twist on earthy shades and textures.
Here are some easy-peasy ways to update your summer goddess profile:
Start with the rings – stack on some gold memory beauties (the more the merrier). Next up: get an arm party rocking with beaded and bejeweled multi-coloured bracelets. It’s all about the mix here, and combining textures like wood and metals is everything. Slap on a menswear-inspired chunky gold watch and tortoise printed sunnies boasting a ‘50s vibe, and your “borrowed from the boys” look will be all the more breezy.
And now for the pièce de résistance: the clutch. The Aztec plated print boldly adds a gilded statement to the oversized purse. Colour-blocking and tribal inspo? Yes, please.
This season might be all about normcore and its push for simplicity, but we say normcore, no more (well, at least for today’s look): bring on a blend of colours and natural (earth-y) wood tones, mix up your patterns (prints are a neutral, after all) and conquer the style map.
