There are so many accessories to choose from this season, from geometrical shaped bags to chokers and tiaras; from the clear sunglasses look to small scarves around the neck. There is something to satisfy everyone’s taste.

Whether you are into playful and fun types of accessories or a sophisticated chic style, why not some quirky add-ons?

You may wonder why accessories are so important and a must-have in every woman’s closet. It’s because they have the ability and magic to transform you into a Cinderella. They can instantly turn a dull outfit into a magnificent one, transforming a minimalist silhouette into a sassy one without any great effort and certainly without overdoing it, given that you don’t actually overdo it.

Picture these before-and-after effect examples:

Option 1:

A white V-neck t-shirt, blue ripped boyfriend jeans, off the shoulder white blazer, white cutout Manolo pumps or Gianvito Rossi without anything else. Now, add a colorful Dolce & Gabbana boxed bag, flowery dolce earrings and voila the magic is done!

Option 2:

A black simple t-shirt, cropped or fitted black jeans, a khaki bomber jacket- off the shoulder, Aquazzura open toe booties or laced open toe booties; now simply add a gold Maison Margiela choker, a Mark Cross bag and a stack of rings on every finger and you’ll look amazing, guaranteed!

Option 3:

A white V-neck t-shirt, ripped blue boyfriend jeans, white cutout Manolo pumps and an off the shoulder black blazer. Now, add a Maison Margiela Gold choker or Givenchy one with a M2Malletier black handbag, a stack of Alexander McQueen rings and some chunky bracelets on both hands and voila, you look instantly fabulous!

Always remember, when accessorizing, make sure you choose statement pieces that will lift your outfit and make you stand out instantaneously.

Elevate your look further with the right bag. The “it” bag to have right now and one that we’ve been seeing everywhere, is a geometrical (cubic/round-shaped) bag. It’s definitely a must-have this season.

My favorite ones are:
Hillier Bratley bags

Marc cross bags
Mark Cross’s signature Grace box bag is a modern take of an overnight case Grace Kelly carried in Hitchcock's 1954 film Rear Window. It's crafted from powder blue pebble-grained leather, accented with 18kt gold-plated hardware, and lined with luxurious red lamb leather.

M2Malletier bags
M2Malletier cites renowned architect Ricardo Bofill as one of the biggest sources of inspiration behind its bags. This style has been handcrafted in Spain from pastel-orange and off-white leather and adorned with the signature sculptural "needle" top handle in silver

Excocet Paris - Grey 3D printed hybrid bull with wings.
I love this brand and I highly believe that the new future in fashion is 3D print. We have already seen it on many runways so far, including that of fashion powerhouse Karl Lagerfeld.
