Mermaids have long been a part of storytelling, folklore, and popular culture. Growing up, I was obsessed with movies like The Little Mermaid and Splash....and used to dream of being as graceful and beautiful as those underwater creatures. Whenever something is mermaid themed, it tends to be on my radar. For instance, the mermaid tail brushes in my collection that have pink, blue, and green handles. Not to mention scales! Or the Tarte eyeshadow palette, Be a Mermaid & Make Waves. There are so many examples of mermaid inspired makeup and beauty collections. Accessories are just as popular! Recently, I was given a beautiful pair of Betsey Johnson mermaid tail earrings. It was love at first sight! In honour of those earrings, this post is dedicated to lots and lots of different mermaid inspired accessories.
There is a reason Betsey Johnson is one of my all-time favourite designers. Her creations are never bland or boring...and easily showcase lots of personality. Take these mermaid tail earrings as an example. They are perfection! While some Betsey designs are a little more dramatic, this particular set of earrings tows the line between whimsical and elegant. The rose gold colour is beautiful as are all of the small and sparkly stones. These earrings are fairly small in size so they really can be paired with just about anything. They are glamorous but still so much fun to wear. Sparkle, shine, and of course, that undeniable mermaid inspiration makes these earrings extra special. I have been absolutely loving them lately.
When it comes to mermaid inspired accessories, there are many other ways to incorporate them into your everyday looks. From purses to shoes to rings (be sure to check out my Charmed Aroma Mermaid Candle review for an example of a mermaid inspired ring) and so much more...the possibilities are endless. Here are a few inspiration items to liven up any wardrobe.
Does your outfit need a little boost? Do you want something that adds lots of personality? Plays with colour? Texture? Then embrace all things mermaid inspired. There are so many subtle (and not-so-subtle) ways to channel your inner sea creature.
