What’s not to love about coffee? It’s reliable, supportive of your goals, and smells of happiness/kicking ass. Coffee is man’s real best friend, let’s be honest. The dogs of the world aren’t even mad about it because they’re too busy wishing there was some dog-friendly form that they could brew up, too (Dogffee™; Pawspresso™). In honor of this joyous National Coffee Day 2016, here are a few reasons why coffee is the perfect accessory.
Carrying coffee automatically shows that you’re conquering your day with purpose. You’ve got things to do, places to be, and people to see. The water bottles and Tervises of the world could be up to any sort of shenanigans, but that coffee in your hand signifies that you mean business, even if you’re rocking your mom’s sweatpants.
Your coffee emphasizes whatever your hands and wrists may have to offer. Gals- new manicure? Bam. Look how much your to-go cup makes that color pop. Guys- new watch? Woah! Look at that nifty wristy holding up that cup of joe. Whether it be stacked rings, chunky bracelets, or fabulous nails, coffee goes with it all. And unlike most of those accessories, it doesn’t require you to worry about whether you’ve worn something that will leave your skin green (because gross).
...On the flip-side, it can also excuse your lack thereof. Today, maybe you didn’t have time to worry about your hand/wrist aesthetic, because you’re busy getting shit done, which is why you need the caffeine! Duh! Insert coffee. Ta da! You’re looking lovely, dear.
Coffee looks good with every color scheme or palette. Not only is the literal color, brown, a neutral, but just the overall look of an outfit as the backdrop to the coffee you’re toting pretty much always works. The exception, in this case, being an outfit consisting of an “I Hate Coffee” or “Caffeine Kills” t-shirt. But nobody knows why those even exist.
Your coffee’s accessories can also give off whatever vibes you’d like without saying a word. Perhaps you’ve brought your “Shhh…not while I’m drinking” cup to let bystanders know not to mess with you until you’ve had your caffeine fix. Maybe you’ve got your “Carpe Caffeine” mug out so everyone knows you’re feeling good and planning to absolutely slay this day. Or perhaps you’re even toting your “Espresso Patronum” thermos to finally come clean and let the world know that you’re a wizard (at life).
Plain and simple, coffee just makes you feel like a badass. Maybe it’s the caffeine kick or maybe it’s that drinking coffee signifies step 1 in seizing the day ahead, but no matter what the cause, feeling like a rockstar leaves you looking like a rockstar in whatever style you may be sporting.
