How to Wear: A TOUCH OF GOLD

13 Dec

I’ve blogged before about how I’m not a massive fan of little things, and usually that statement extends to jewellery also. I prefer knuckledusters, bibs, and cuffs to thin rings, chains, and tennis bracelets – the latter usually calling to mind images of  nasty things like Stepford Wives and ladies that like to match their bags to their shoes. HOWEVER (this is the bit where I contradict myself), there is something to be said for the allure of the fine gold necklace, as seen recently at Me & Ro, Van Rycke, and Aurelie Bidermann. With this in mind, during my recent stalks of street-style blogs, I have been keeping an eye out for the fine gold chain worn well. It seems the formula is relatively simple: plain tee + dishevelled hair + fine gold chain = pared-back perfection.

I think this look works particularly well if you are inclined to wear a statement piece (e.g. the culottes in the first picture), but are bored of the statement everything + arm-parties-galore + bib necklace + YSL-arty- ring-or-five thing, as currently seen on fash bloggers everywhere (apart from Hanneli. Hanneli is someone who I’m sure wears simple gold chains all the time).
