My love affair with minimalist gold-tone accessories continues…
OK, the earrings are probably the anti-thesis of minimalism: you see them a mile away… Yet, these are the most comfortable, easy-to-wear earrings I have. They’re rose-gold leather, so they weigh nothing. I bought them in Berlin years ago, in a small shop selling items by local designers.
And the first thing I did was break them, on purpose. I do that with all ‘fashion earrings’: I always take the hooks off and just hang the earrings from my own white gold hoops instead. Why would I do something like that, you might ask… Well, as it happens, I have a very bad nickel allergy. Yes, I know: any jewellery sold in the EU should be nickel-free, but I prefer not to take any chances. I seldom wear even silver earrings; for me, it’s either old or white gold.
But let’s talk about this outfit. As you may have guessed, this is one of those ‘walking-in-the-neighbourhood’ outfits: it’s not like I need to dress up to go to a park.
Anyway… the striped jersey dress has quickly become a favourite: it goes with anything and can be styled up or down. It’s sleeveless, so I usually wear a cardigan or a linen shirt over it (to protect my delicate skin from burning in the sun, or to keep warm, depending on the weather). This is about as much layering as I can take: a cardigan or a shirt over a sleeveless dress. It’s also very practical, given the unpredictable weather we’ve been having lately.
And that’s the essence of minimalist style for me: clothes that are easy to wear, uncomplicated and comfortable. Clothes you can forget about after you put them on and just get on with your life.
