These incredibly chic and fabulous statement accessories will have every woman in the room doing a green-eyed double-take. And while some of them might leave your wallet just a little bit lighter, some are totally instantly buy-able without a second thought. Go check these out right now - and thank us later. ;)
1. Luxe Bejewelled Earcuff, Forever 21
We are skipping the gold earcuffs for this neon version this season. Wear it with an all-black or all-white look, and accentuate it with an army of rings. Pull your hair in a topknot, and you’ll be good to go!
Why wear a simple choker when a statement one is at your disposal? This standout piece is sure to grab eyeballs when worn with an open-neck blouse or dress. Wear it for a lunch meeting, or for some after-hours frolicking - this is a super-versatile little piece.
3. River Island Kaleidoscope Turban Headband, ASOS
Turban headbands are quickly becoming the accessory du jour for anyone going for boho-chic. Not only are they extremely music-festival savvy and holiday-friendly, but they are also a sure-shot way to give the same ol’ outfit a unique spin. We love this printed one because of its silver-tone drop-chains detailing.
If you’re going to “put a ring on it”, then it had better be this one! And if you need convincing, then consider this: this fierce yet feminine head turner - which will amp up both Western and traditional Indian wear - is a limited edition creation from design maestro Manish Arora! Hitting “Add to cart” already? Thought as much!
7. Crystal Statement Headpiece, Nitya Bajaj on Love for Pretty Things
Look every inch the gypsy with this statement headpiece! Give those done-to-death accessories a miss and slip on this uncommon standout number. Wear it for an upcoming Diwali dinner with a lehenga, and keep it on as you slip into a sequinned dress to meet your friends after.
8. Tribal Deco Neckpiece, Valliyan on Anonymous Co.
If you want to jump on to the statement pendant bandwagon, then do it with this piece. This gilded neckpiece is bound to come to your rescue when you’re looking for a fuss-free accessory to give your look a sophisticated makeover. Wear it with a black jumpsuit? Yes! Team with a formal white blouse? Why not?! Perfect for a party look? Indeed. :)
9. Gold and Gunmetal Finish Multiple Chain Floral Cutout Shoulder Harness, Bansri on Pernia’s Pop-Up Shop
Body harnesses are the au courant way to spice up a simple outfit, and this 18K-gold-plated number with a layered cutout floral pattern on the shoulders and multiple draped chains is a got-my-glam-on winner! Look beyond the regular necklace and turn to a body harness when trying to dress up a simple top or a printed dress.
Does your accessory collection need a hand harness? If you’re a true-blue fashionista, then the answer has to be yes! The haath phool’s modern-day reinvention is an instant quick-fix for when you want to dress up an otherwise simple outfit. And this adjustable statement cuff and Swarovski ring combination gets our vote. No second thoughts there.
