“Does your chain hang low, does it wobble to the flow, does it shine in the light, is it platinum, and is it gold?” These are the lyrics off a hit track by Jibbs, a rap artiste from the USA, a few years ago.
Accessories are so important that songs have been written about them as we see here! One fact that has long been overemphasized in fashion is the effect accessories can have on an otherwise demure outfit. Even more dramatic are accessories that hang low.
We sometimes find that these accessories in body and drooping design stand out from the pack and cause eyes to linger on you for just a bit longer when you don them. These days there’s an almost overwhelming variety of these unique accessories in colour, shape and style and they mesh well with just about any look from a casual day at the cinema with friends to a glamorous black tie event.
Accessories with beads go way back, almost centuries. Our ancestors and their fathers before them have long been wearing beads as a thing of adornment. The style endures till today , in long, alluring designs.
For the upwardly mobile, tech-savvy 20-something on the go, nothing says modern and 2012 like this neckpiece.
This is the centre-piece of the look, the final and most beautiful jigsaw in the puzzle. As in the look here, it draws admiring eyes to your face (and neck) immediately!
Even Men are in on the Trend!
