Is it okay to mix the accessories?

Q. Is it OK to mix silver and gold accessories?

A. Fortunately mixing metals is no longer shunned. Instead of conflicting, mixing gold and silver adds texture and warmth, and some fun. Mixed metals can bring an outfit together and can be worn in earrings, necklaces, watches and belts. There are plenty of shops in Doha where you can find gorgeous affordable mixed metals accessories like Parfois at Dar Salam Mall, or Top Shop and Wallis at Villaggio Mall. When it comes to clothes, it’s a bit trickier. I’d advise stay awaying from mixed metallic fabrics in case you look like you’re trying too hard.
