If history books are to be believed, then we humans follow a specific pattern in responding to epidemics and pandemics. With a deadly virus on the prowl, society naturally adopts a more risk-averse lifestyle. To secure both health and finances, people tend to reduce social engagements and tighten the purse strings – at least until the nightmare is over. But, what happens when the pandemic is finally put to rest?
It was no coincidence that the 1918 influenza pandemic was followed by the roaring 20s. While we are still very much mid-pandemic, but with the advent of several COVID-19 vaccines, we might just be on the brink of our very own modern version of the roaring 20s. The accessories world especially seems to have received the memo and is very much ready to put the pandemic behind us.
Love them or hate them, there’s absolutely no ignoring bling accessories – especially when the fashion world is rife with all things glitzy. So, when it is finally safe to go about and socialize like we did pre-COVID, the accessory world – with all its gems, rhinestones, sequins, and sparkly metallics – is set to glam up our outfits. Think chunky rhinestone earrings, sequin handbags, rhinestone headbands, and even metallic boots. That’s not all. The latest addition to our accessory closets, face masks, have gotten a blingy makeover too. Protective face masks made out of sequined or other glittering metallic materials are also increasingly popular among the “It” girls.
Rhinestone headbands are a hot favorite among the cool0girl gang. If you’re feeling gutsy, opt for a chunky one or a delicate one if you prefer to keep things subtle. Speaking of subtle, handbags and shoes adorned with rhinestone tassels are the minimalist’s way of going about the trend.
What we love most about bling accessories is their power to instantly elevate just about any outfit. As for their popularity? We only expect to see it rise.
