Accessories are essential in perfecting, personalizing and polishing your look. Transform your plain Jane avatars into killer styles. We present to you four most basic yet crucial accessories that could be your next purchase!
“I think a scarf is the most versatile item. On a plane, it’s good to wrap around when you’re cold or rest your head on it…” Martha Seifert Hunt. We love the way the famous Victoria Secret model describes scarves – functional, decorative and sentimental hand-downs, if kept well.
Did you know that Carré, the Hermès scarf, is equivalent to a Swiss Army knife, because of the multiple things a scarf can do – fold, twist, tie, roll, rumple.
Styling options are endless, you can convert a silk scarf into statement neck piece with an easy add-on of gold tone knotted scarf ring or even consider tying it on your Neverfull. During the day style your floral dress with a Dior Monogram silk scarf as a back neck-tie. Use it as an alternative to a belt along with denim or be a little playful and tie it on your wrist or ankle.

Keep your staple pair of glasses aside for a while and go for bold frames to refresh your look. Regardless of the season sunglasses are the perfect style accessory to glam up any outfit. We highly recommend that you invest on these styles.
Mirrored glasses were one celebrity trend that went viral after the Hadid sisters made it a popular hashtag. Try out the electric pair of Fendi mirrored glasses or the super stylish Miu Miu embellished glasses to add a dash of glamour. For a fiercer look pick Dior’s version of pop colors .
