Accessories are more than decorations. You may think of them as mere things that spice up your overall look, but there is a psychology that goes deeper than that. The kind of accessories you gravitate toward are a reflection of your personality, mood, and tastes. Here are 7 things your accessories say about you:
From fabric accessories to large handmade pieces, it’s easy to spot a person with peculiar and modern tastes. Your penchant for art piece-like accessories shows how much to like being in the spotlight, getting compliments from everyone you bump into. And since you like wow-worthy, one-of-a-kind pieces so much, you’re probably into making your own accessories as well.
It’s typical to see piercings on the earlobes. But nose, eyebrow, and tongue piercings speak volumes about a person’s personality. Since these types of piercings take a lot more courage to get, they usually allude to a strong personality that doesn’t like to conform to the norm. Of course, a person could just like how these piercings look, but that also says something about them, even in an unconscious way.
If you like layering your jewelry pieces all the time, then you probably have a body feature you’re either insecure about or proud of. Layering necklaces, for example, is some subconscious way of drawing attention toward one’s beautiful neck and well-defined clavicles while drawing attention away from one’s flabby abdominal area.
For you, there’s just something beautiful about wearing jewelry saturated with history. Vintage pieces provoke a sense of nostalgia for someone from a bygone era. You don’t necessarily have to know them personally, but the thought of them wearing the same jewelry you’re wearing makes you feel connected to them somehow, which makes you a romantic.
Wearing pearls could be an indication that a person is partial to elegant and classic things. Since the retro style is making a comeback, pearl bracelets are becoming a staple once again. It’s the perfect accessory to make a simple shirt look more put together.
Psychology posits that colors have a deep subconscious effect on a person’s mood. Sociology also designates colors on people based on their gender, although ambiguous. For example, wearing yellow helps people feel happy and optimistic, green invokes a feeling of sincerity, and blue keeps people cool and calm. If colors like these are predominant in your choice of jewelry, it means you’re an upbeat, yet calm and sincere person.
Whether it’s chunky chains, sleek metal bracelets, and daring mixed-metal rings, it doesn’t matter. Wearing metals is an indication of one thing — power. Given the tough nature of metals, people who like wearing them are often perceived as brave and bold. Metal pieces tell the world and everyone around that you're ready to take on anything and you’re definitely going places.
