Sometimes we need more than a subtle pair of drop earrings to complete an outfit. This happens when the clothes we wear feel like blank canvases and we turn to our accessories to make a statement.
From intricately woven necklaces worn with striking white dresses — with our hair up in a messy chignon and a cat eyeliner to darken our eyes — to bold brooches worn with our classic tailored jacket, accessories can take our everyday style from mundane to magnetic.
Get inspired by the designs of some of the top fashion designers and work these five show stopping accessories into your next outfits.
Every piece designed by Elie Saab is the personification of a dream - this intricately woven necklace is nothing less. Lying heavy around our necks, statement necklaces bring drama to any outfit.
Give a new twist to your little black dress or that suit you have grown tired of wearing and see them come to life with this one accessory.
Shop statement necklaces: Dylanlex Ryker, Oscar de la Renta, Marchesa.
There are shoes we wear absentmindedly, ones that have morphed into the shape of our foot and take us everywhere our life and our daydreams lead us. Then there are other shoes, ones with silk soles or dramatic patterns; bold buckles or elaborate heels that make us feel like we are walking into a dream, as these floral mules by Alberta Ferretti do.
The Bow Tie
The simple buttoned up shirt is the perfect canvas when the bow tie is the show stopping accessory of the day. Gucci’s romantic floral bow tie is utterly romantic. Get inspired and try this romantic note for your next outfit.
We often associate brooches with old women with wrinkles on their face and the allure of the past in their bones but the house of McQueen has given us a reason to don the brooch ourselves, even in our nonchalant days of youth.
Pile up on brooches with your next outfit by pinning different shaped ones all over your jacket.
Drop earrings and studs can take us anywhere from the beach to our wedding, but statement earrings paired with a cocktail dress or denim, are here to adorn our ears in the most beautiful way.
Take your hair off your face when donning a pair of statement earrings, try a ponytail and a bold lip, and sway your way through the day.
