Style Radar: Missy Skin

We recently watched Iris, the delightful 2015 documentary on nonagenarian fashion icon Iris Apfel and, among the many inspiring life and style lessons we took from it, was the fact that a) real panache is about self-expression and attitude and b) accessories are the herbs and spices of any ensemble. 

Missy Skins

“They give zest and zing to an outfit,” says Apfel, as she tries on a bangle three times her weight. We couldn’t agree more. Details can make or break a look. Big or small, subtle or mega bold, they pack a punch like few other fashion items.

In need of ideas? Check out China-based Missy Skins’s range of jewelry, pins and clutches. Loud and eye-catching, they take cues from the 80s and play with a tongue-in-cheek aesthetic, from a plastic fantastic ‘Lovesick’ necklace (RMB98) and a strawberry shaped single earring (RMB128) to a pin set called ‘Memories’ (RMB99) that manages to balance teenage cute and hipster cool.

“If there was a choice on spending a lot of money on accessories or a dress, I always chose accessories,” says Apfel. When they don’t take themselves seriously like these ones, we are happy to play along.
