While fashion trends will come and go, there’s always room in people’s wardrobes for the classics. Just like how every girl no matter their age needs a little black dress, having a few classical accessories can be just the thing to perk up an otherwise drab ensemble. But today, we’re going to talk about something a little more “classical”, and we mean that in the historically academic sense.
Let’s look at some of the most interesting fashion choices spanning more than thousands of years for women who love playing bingo but are looking to bring a little something more to their outfits.
It’s been a long time since Egyptian styled jewellery was in vogue, with Elizabeth Taylor being the first person to bring old world glamour to the silver screen in 1963, followed almost 40 years after by Angelina Jolie in Alexander. But because bingo as a game has so much history behind it, why not take notes from some of the most beautiful women in history as well?
An Egyptian choker is an amazing way of adding a certain level of drama to any outfit without having to spend hundreds of thousands on a bib of diamonds. It’s a way of bringing intricate metalwork and shimmer to even the most understated of outfits. Could you just imagine the light shining down on you and dancing off each strand of the choker while waiting for the next number to be called out? It’s enough to make anyone feel like a winner even if they’re so many numbers away from bingo!
While many people automatically default to Eye of Horus pendants or chandelier earrings when they think of Egyptian jewellery, many might not know just how much modern fashion has been inspired by the metal working of ancient eras. Metal cuffs, which are replacing thin bracelets as the wrist accessory of choice, has its roots in ancient metalworking dating back from ancient Egypt and Greece.
Project Accessory, the offshoot to the highly successful Project Runway series, had numerous contestants working with metallic cuffs for their debut season and since then, chunky yet funky metallic accessories have remained a constant hit. Even Shu Horn, the Cleopatra pastiche and one of the divine representatives from Egypt on Bingogodz is rocking a beautiful golden cuff. Since bingo, even its online versions, focuses heavily on the community it fosters, sometimes just showing up with some unique bling can be all it takes to strike it big with friends and regulars. And who knows, maybe this is just what a girl needs to get lucky and go home with the jackpot?
Who says people need to use gems to bring that celebrity sparkle into a night of bingo?
