Coachella kicked off this year’s festival season and one of my favourite (and laziest) summer outfits consists of well-loved denim shorts, a worn-in t-shirt accessorized with a kooky pendant and this year I have decided that rough-and-ready crystal is the answer.
As well as festival fun I plan on getting serious mileage out of some crystal beauties all through winter thanks to Chanel’s AW12 collection, where Karl Lagerfeld went crazy for amethyst and quartz shards on chunky bracelets (controversially similar to Pamela Love’s designs).
The best bit is that they are cheap and cheerful and if you’re into hippie things they also mean different things. I will just go by colour and prefer the silver with purple and pale stones to the bright ones in bullet cases and intend on stopping by a cute shop opposite King’s College in Cambridge to pick some up…or else try out one of countless new-age websites online. Hurray for hippies!
