Playcouture: bracelets and scarfs
I was thinking the other day: “What is my signature style?” Jeans and sweaters can not be it … especially for the one who back in the day thought of herself as a bonafide fashionista :) I looked into my closet and simply observed what is the most abundant item type that it holds and there it was — my answer. Every outfit that I have has always a matching Bracelet and Scarf combo to go with it. Even if I do not have time to sometimes include them into my look — every look for sure will have a buddy bracelet and a scarf to enhance it.
Everywhere I travel, I seem to always come back from with a scarf or a bracelet as if those accessories reveal to me the soul and nature of the newly discovered place. That’s true, I can try to tell about a place/city/country from the type of scarfs that come from it or the design of the bracelets that were made there.
My favorite scarfs are silk ones, but I also like to include some trendy versions like blanket scarfs and infinity loops. When wearing my favorite oversized blanket scarf from Asos I like to pair it with edgy bracelet like the one above by Nadia Lee. To me it seems as if one warms the other or adds a bit of definition to another.
Another favorite of mine is Stella & Dot rose gold and silver bracelet which contrasts so nicely with the silk scarfs I got from my travels in South Asia, like the one above from Dhaka, Bangladesh.
Sometimes to add some “old world glamour” to my 0ften casual outfit, I like to wear pearl bracelets with a silk scarf. Somehow this juxtaposition of styles works well together. Maybe it reminds me that even though in this world a woman/mom can wear many hats, it is still nice to have something sweet and pretty about her air :)
So there we have it — Bracelets and Scarfs are my signature style, my playcouture :) What’s yours?
