At the Venice Film Festival the actor Tilda Swinton pulled out an ornate gold design face mask and wore it on the red carpet, just like she would have with a statement clutch bag or a must-have piece of jewellery.

The mask was not entirely pandemic-approved – on Instagram the designer James Merry said the custom-made piece was inspired by “stingray skeletons, seaweed and orchids” – but it was symbolic of a bigger shift: the world of high fashion is finally allowing itself to embrace the coronavirus face mask.

Last week also saw Lady Gaga light up the static VMA awards show with a parade of highly fashion-conscious masks.

And there are some pieces that you may never even need to take off. But perhaps my favorite thing about jewelry is that it’s the easiest way to dress up any outfit, or at least add a little more personality to it.

For obvious reasons, there are a lot of casual outfit posts on Instagram these days, but that doesn’t mean they’re going un-accessorized. ‘Tis the season to start transitioning our wardrobes to fall, so you may have noticed fewer bikinis and more cardigans on Instagram recently.
