It’s safe to say that we’re over the bling-bling era

7 minimalist accessories to highlight your OOTD this holiday season

Published Dec 06, 2020 9:30 pm

How does that cliché go? Less is always more. There’s a reason why Coco Chanel reminded us to “look in the mirror and take one thing off” before leaving the house. Because at the end of the day, accessories are just add-ons. You wear them to enhance your whole outfit — not to take the spotlight away from it.

Don’t get us wrong. We love chunky accessories, except we’re in our minimalist era right now and would love to spread that agenda. So we’ve listed seven accessories to kick-start your minimalist collection.

Dove necklace

Sterling Silver 925 Ladies Necklace 16 inches Franco chain with dove pendant from Unisilver

Dove is the symbol of peace, liberty and hope. And considering the situation we’re in, everybody needs a reminder that there’s still hope for us, right?

Linked circles necklace

Interlocking rings necklace from M Lhuillier Jewellers’ The Amparito Collection

Infinity necklaces were so trendy for a time (still are, actually). But if you don’t want to “be like other girls,” we suggest going for some linked circles necklace. It shares the same meaning as infinity necklaces: empowerment and everlasting love (oh, the cheese).

Diamond solitaire

Single-diamond ring from Suarez and Sons

Who says diamond rings are only for engaged women? Hey, you decide what you wear on your left ring finger. So we say eff the rules and buy one for yourself.

Stud earrings

Hemispherical stud earrings from Parfois

First of all, stud earrings are light so your earlobes are safe. You can even wear them while sleeping. They also provide a nice touch of style without being too flashy. And they go well with any attire — formal, casual, street, or whatever you call your OOTD.

Analog watch

Tommy Hilfiger analog watch in rose gold from Time Depot

If you really want to start a minimalist collection, you might want to start investing in analog watches rather than digital ones as they look more simplistic.

Cherie Paris Women Rosegold Metal Strap Analog Watch from Watch Central

They’re also very versatile. You can wear an analog watch at home, to work and even to formal events or parties.

The Essentialist analog watch from Fossil

And no offense, but the glaring numbers on digital watches defeat the purpose of minimalism. So we’re #TeamAnalog all the way!
