From the fringe bag to an intricate scarf, Vogue Philippines gives you a run-down of eye-catching accessories to include in your repertoire.
What better way to reinvigorate your wardrobe than with show-stopping pieces? Because your roster of streamlined pieces doesn’t need to be dreary. Instead, invest in enduring pieces that give your look personality and bring joy to your everyday.
Consider golden jewelry that add a contemporary edge to your ensembles or a crafty belt for an unconventional bohemian twist to your everyday look. Even the fringe bag has proved to be the accessory du jour, making appearances on Chloé’s Resort 2022 show to Dries Van Noten’s Spring 2022 collection. Without a doubt, wearing a maximalist accessory is the easiest way to add intrigue to a casual ensemble. Below is our guide to the four wardrobe essentials that take your everyday attire to unprecedented heights.
A Bold Gold Statement
Cartier’s Panthère set comprises of sculptural pieces that accentuate the neckline. With a sinuous design, the feline-inspired statement set features octagonal black lacquer spots, yellow gold, and two artful panthers adorned with emerald or tsavorite garnet eyes. Its white gold edition is paved with diamonds and set with onyx spots. Paired with eveningwear or a minimalist ensemble, this captivating piece is sure to turn heads.
An Artful Scarf
Where art and fashion meet, an Hermès scarf is a glamorous add-on to relaxed attire. Pair it with an ultra-luxe button-up and a pair of flared jeans for an impactful look. One could even wear a summer dress for a ’60s starlet tribute. Tie it in different ways—around your neck, in your hair, attached to your bag, or even as a bandana—the possibilities are endless. Either way, this silk accessory is your next seasonless go-to.
A Bohemian Touch
Chloé’s crochet bag in rainbow stripes is a standout option to your conventional handbag. Found in a tropical color palette, the sophisticated style conveys vivacity in every layer. Remove the strap to wear it as a clutch for gatherings, wear it on the shoulder for a hint of vibrancy, or wear it across the body for everyday errands.
An Artisanal Essential
A crafty ’70s-era belt is a necessity to bring texture to casual styles. Opt for crocheted or woven pieces and pair with a button-up and sandals for an effortless, minimalist ensemble. A fresh take on the traditional leather belt, this neutral accessory is often overlooked. Take note of Maryam Nassir Zadeh’s Medallion belts or Alaïa’s Hinge studded belt for a handmade touch.
