Accessories can make or break an outfit
That’s what I tell myself, anyway. Because when I cannot find clothes I like in shops, I turn my attention to accessories…
You’ve seen the bag (many times) and the cashmere scarf (I bought it a couple of weeks ago; I really needed a scarf in a solid colour for change). And you’ve definitely seen the sunglasses (the current favourite). So what’s new here?
Well, the gloves, of course.
When you think of accessories, do you see them as something to add as the ‘final touch’, with mainly a decorative function?
I don’t see accessories this way (except maybe jewellery, which I seldom wear these days). My accessories are always functional. For example, I have bags of varying sizes, for different occasions. I wouldn’t want to carry what I consider a ‘work bag’ (= a tote) when I’m off duty, Instead, I prefer a smaller bag or a crossbody bag. However, all of them must be big enough to hold what I consider ‘necessities’. And I wouldn’t dream of leaving home without a pair of sunglasses on a sunny day, or even on a cloudy day (I have sensitive eyes). And gloves… Well, a good pair of gloves is is a must when you live in a cold climate.
Anyway, I’ve been planning to replace my favourite pair of gloves for a while now as they’re beginning to show some wear and tear. And of course I wanted something similar in style…
Naturally, I have more than one pair of gloves. I have gloves in several colours, too. And I think I even have several pairs of gloves with metal accents.
What I really wanted to find this time was gloves with cashmere lining (because it’s not itchy, unlike wool). Well, these gloves have a cashmere-wool mix lining, so close enough. And they go well with the bag and sunglasses, too, which is always good.
