We all love things that come in threes, right? Men in three-piece suits. Cheese, tomato, and pepperoni on a pizza. Harry, Ron, and Hermione. Hmm… Destiny’s Child? The point is that three is a strong number, and this rule of awesome things coming in threes definitely applies to your accessories. Right now, we’re talking a fantastic trio of watch, necklace, and a pair of earrings (okay, that’s technically four things, but let’s quickly move on).
These accessories can turn a good outfit into a great outfit – small touches that can complement your clothing in big ways. Bigger choices don’t always mean better, as often it’s simply about what works well with your chosen outfit. So, mix and match as much as you like, but just make sure you’ve got some good options to work with. And that’s why we’re here!
Let’s start with watches. A thing that looks gorgeous and tells the time? What’s not to love! You might think the humble watch is outdated now that we’re never far from some sort of digital device that displays a clock, but the justifications to wear a watch are numerous. First off, they are a great reason not to constantly check your phone, but secondly, watches are yet another way to showcase a piece of your style. Marie Claire writes that, “The wrist is a window into the soul,” but whether or not you believe in that, their blog post on celebrity watch choices is a fascinating look into how diverse timepieces can be.
Whilst we’re not suggesting that you have to keep up with the celebrity Joneses and pick up a few Cartier or Rolex watches on your weekly grocery shop, Swiss-made watches really are the bee’s knees when it comes to beauty and style. However, going down the pre-worn route is definitely a solid life-hack, as you get the same great watch, but at a far cheaper price. Browse through an online seller like this and see what takes your fancy.
Next up is the necklace. It can actually be hard to find the right necklace for you. With so many shops and online stores selling cool and interesting designs, you’d be forgiven for being a bit overwhelmed at the choice! However, if you only buy one necklace this year, make it something unique. Introducing: Origami animal jewelry. It’s hard not to marvel at the simple-but-beautiful designs, and no matter what type of animal you connect with the most, there is bound to be something for you. These are also just a fun conversation starter! Who wouldn’t make a comment about a golden origami crane or a silver origami fox?
Finally, we come to earrings to complete the trio. In the past, we’ve covered larger statement earrings, but now we want to make a case for studs. Statement earrings may not suit your style, as you may wish for something less conspicuous and bold, but if you want that cherry on top to complete your outfit, then we have to recommend one of these choices. Pearl studs are an obvious first choice, as some of the classiest women out there are known to rock these; such as Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson, and Kate Middleton. Then of course the above link covers diamond studs, multi-stone studs, and even snail studs (wait, what?)… now you’ll have to look!
