Accessorizing for summer can be tricky once you have to think beyond a hat and sunglasses. Then there are people like Mary J. Blige, who make it look like a cakewalk. The nine-time Grammy-winning singer posted a photo of herself on Instagram wearing a boat-ready outfit with the caption, “Good Morning Gorgeous! #TooBlessToBeStress.
If only everyone’s summer looked this amazing. Mary J. Blige’s selfie showed her wearing a gold summer piece bodice, but the most striking highlight was her accessory set. Blige wore a set of layered necklaces, including one with a large pendant at the end and her longtime famous “Mary” necklace that has been a fixture in her wardrobe from concerts to music videos. Her gold hoop earrings paired well with her larger-than-life square sunglasses, giving her a pseudo-incognito vibe. The sunglasses had a white part on the edge which helped to reduce the many coordinated golden pieces, giving balance and harmony to the outfit.
From her Instagram feed, it’s obvious the sunglasses are part of the hitmaker’s oversized eyewear collection.
She’s also a big fan of the yellow and gold family colors, including yellow woven jumpsuits, yellow puff sleeve tops and a gold weave bodysuit advertising her own wine brand, Sun Goddess Wines.
