Heavy Metal - #Dope Jewelry Pieces

 Accessories are just as essential as wearing shoes or clothes. They can make or break your outfit if you are not careful. When you OVER do it and  wear every accessory you own in your closet it can look a bit tacky (for a lack of better words). It's okay to layer more than one necklace or a couple bangles with a watch etc. but like the example below, too much can be too distracting.

Accessory Overkill...It's okay to layer accessories but be very careful not to overdo it

When figuring out what accessories to incorporate into your daily wardrobe, remember the famous quote from Coco Chanel
 "Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory"
- Coco Chanel 

In essence Coco is trying to warn us not to look like a Christmas tree with millions of ornaments. To point you in the right direction here are some dope "heavy metal" pieces (at an array of price points) I found from some of my fav websites. Remember "LESS IS MORE"!

  1. I love the quote by CoCo Channel. And I love the title 'Heavy Metal'. Good word play. I need to step my jewelry game up but I too am a firm believer that less is more.
