Being fashionable isn’t always about going all out. Sometimes, carefully selected basic accessories can help lift up your look like nothing else. If you have just the right items in your wardrobe, it should be a cakewalk for you to put together a chic look. Be it a pair of jeans, a basic white shirt, or minimal jewelry, each item brings a different level of elegance and sophistication to your daily vibes. So, here are five accessories that make your look more refined, no matter the day or occasion:
A Bold Earring
While people would usually think of delicate earrings or tops for simple yet elegant looks, an unconventional way to up your style is through statement earrings or hoops. By wearing just these, you can effortlessly improve your style. Also, their light weight makes them ideal to be worn every day, sparing you the daily confusion of choosing what to wear. Some truly amazing and unique choices include Jenny Bird Nouveaux Puff Earrings, Completedworks Notsobig Scrunch Gold Vermeil Earrings, Aeyde Alice Earrings, and Wolf Circus Ciara Hoop Earrings.
Large scrunchies have recently become a go-to statement piece to give a sophisticated edge to your appearance. Keeping the rest of the look totally elementary, having a scrunchie in your hair or on your hand can give you an overall flair. While you might think of them on a bad hair day, try using them on even good hair days to elevate your daily ensemble. These days, the scrunchies that are the ‘in’ thing for people indulging in this trend include Maryam Nassir Zadeh Carnation Scrunchie, Room Shop Giant Scrunchie, Crown Affair Scrunchie No. 002 and Sophie Buhai Silk Scrunchie.
Most people tend to repeat their daily footwear with many looks. While even simple shoes or sandals can help you look more refined, there is always room for improvement. Be it simple ballerinas or more polished or bejeweled pieces, they offer a hassle-free way out to elevate your style quotient. Currently, the trendiest pieces include Tory Burch Studded Ballet Flats, Porte & Paire Bow-Embellished Ballet Flats, Hereu Puntera Pleat-Toe Ballet Flats, and The Row Elastic Leather Ballet Flats.
Simple Yet Tasteful Belts
This one detail has the potential to make or break your look. Choosing a good quality and well-crafted leather belt can prove to be the difference between an ordinary look and one that turns heads wherever you go. Some good options to choose from are Aeyde Eleanor Leather Belt, Khaite Bambi Leather Belt, Bottega Veneta Chain Link Leather Belt, and Malene Birger Zoira Leather Belt.
The easiest way to up your style quotient is with a wristwatch. Small yet impactful, this accessory can make a mark on anyone you meet. A good wristwatch is the ultimate item in your wardrobe that automatically upgrade your look. Having some good options for this particular item makes for a truly beneficial long-term investment. Some of the top choices in wristwatches lately are Cartier Panthère De Cartier Watch, Shinola the Derby 30mm, Breitling Chronomat 36mm Ladies Watch, and Longines 23mm Stainless Steel and Leather Strap Watch.
Gucci, Dior, and other high-end fashion houses have all hopped on the luxury cafe trend. Imagine what they would do with cafes, restaurants, and bars, given the level of detail they offer to retail outlets. Here are some of them.
