Statement Accessories to Add to Your Look

We all know what can take an outfit to the next level: accessories. However, it must be done right! Your statement accessories should tell something about your personality and style. In this case, it’s ok if your jewelry or backpack cost more than your outfit did. Let’s talk about how to spice up your look!

Supreme x Louis Vuitton bag

Supreme has collaborated with Louis Vuitton to create accessories for a Fall-Winter 2017 collection. This bag is already bold enough by having the Supreme logo going across the front. Also, the way to wear this bag is right across your chest. Everyone will see this immediately. There’s not much more you have to do to your look when wearing this bag.

A Patterned/Printed Scarf

When it gets cold enough, whip out the scarf! But not just any old scarf. Get one that has a pattern or print on it. A lot of winter clothes are dark colored and the outfit can easily become dull. The scarf will bring your outfit back to life! A Burberry scarf is a classic option.

Designer Backpack

Backpacks aren’t just for school, you can use it as an accessory to add some sauce to your swag. There are some nice designer backpacks out there to choose from. Perhaps choose an MCM backpack or a Fendi one. A nice Gucci backpack never hurt anyone. Either way, make it worthwhile. When your back is turned to someone they will have a memorable final impression of your sense of style.

Glasses

Glasses used to have a reputation of messing up a look. However, we can make it work in your favor! These actually make for great accessories. Choose a nice pair of Cartier glasses or maybe some Saint Laurent sunglasses to add to your look.

Jewelry

Jewelry is one of the most common ways people add to their final look. Wearing rings have become rather popular recently. Also, a nice gold link chain can take your outfit to the next stage. Watches come in handy because it’s an easy way to draw attention to yourself and can be easily paired with other accessories.

Belts

You will be required to tuck your shirt in for this one. Belts can help your outfit look more sophisticated. Ferragamo designs belts that can make a statement without being too bold. If the belt is going to be the main accessory, a Moschino belt would be a great choice.
