Fearless accessorizing is the statement this year. As we continue along our fashion guide for 2013, we’ve come to the boldest and edgiest items in the VB store.
The late 1970′s and early 80′s were dominated by punk stylings, and those two decades have a major influence on Virgin Blak’s own stylings to this day. All through this year we have been struck with various trends originating from punk fashion but summer is the season where this fashion really flares up – with the glitters and gleams of studs, stones, chains and spikes glistening in the bright sunlight.
The originators of such edgy fashions merely wore what they pleased, but lucky for us, we have something to work with to give our ensemble an au courant dash of edge.
So, how do we integrate studded accessories into our wardrobe? Our advice is more of a straightforward slogan than a boring step-by-step guide, and besides we don’t want to tell you what to wear or how to wear it, as this defeats our very own advice as you will see.
People tend to think of jewellery in extremes, and it doesn’t function well at extremes. It’s not about chunky silver or big ass diamonds. What it comes back to is, does it look personal? It should look like you’ve been wearing it for years—something you picked up along the way. You don’t want to look flashy. You want to feel comfortable. So when you’re buying jewellery, all you need to ask is: ‘Do I feel like myself with this on?’
And that is our straightforward slogan, so next time you are buying yourself jewellery that’s all you need to remember to ask yourself, ‘Do I feel like myself with this on?’ If you are not already a wearer of jewellery all we recommend is to start simple; Start with a wrist piece and add to it over time, with a necklace and a ring or two. Don’t run out and buy a Mr. T–worthy haul all at once.
The impact music has had on style through the years is all-encompassing, the two have been inextricably linked from the beginning. Punk inadvertently developed a fashion paradigm, which has stood the test of time and doesn’t seem to be losing its potency anytime soon. The best thing about punk inspired accessories is that they employ powerful imagery and promote individuality, and individuality means being YOU! So just like our own mottos encourage – Be Yourself, be Stunning, Stand Out or Get Out!
And remember…all that glitters is Virgin Blak
