Accessorising is to fashion what training wheels is to young bikers… they are a safe place where you can hone your craft and grow. Accessories play a big part in putting together an ensemble, they instantly amp up the aesthetic of one and gives you room to showcase your creativity.

All The Big Accessories Trends 2018-2019
Much like clothing, accessories are dynamic in nature and subject to change according to the season. The way you accessorise in summer will have a stark difference from winter's, the quantity and style of which will vary. We keep an eye out for the biggest trends that show up in a particular season in order to keep you updated on what’s in vogue at all times.
Although we like to report on anything we see catching traction (even glitter sipper bottles as an alternate accessory), there are four major sections we cover under this head… bags, shoes, jewellery and add-ons. From pretty bags that you can pair with dresses to travel shoes that are tailored to your needs, we talk about them all!
Bollywood Style Spotting
One of our favorite past times at POPxo is celeb style spotting. Celebrities in the instagram age have become more conscious about what they wear during promotions and off duty as well. Constantly being in the public eye have rendered them in need to stylists, who come through with their claims of bringing us awesome looks!
We cover a big range of celeb style accessorising… from the red carpet to travel style, there is something for everyone to follow. Whether you are interested in Alia’s youthful ethnic accessorising for college inspiration or Shilpa’s classy and minimal looks to look more mature, we have all the mood boards.
Apart from travel and promotional looks, we often do a deep dive into the general accessorising habits of Bollywood stars as well. Usually focusing on one star at time, we try to decode how they manage to achieve their statement look, be it a style of shoes or the way they cinch their belts. As is the same with their clothing, Bollywood stars love to indulge in designer wear. We pride ourselves greatly in finding budget alternatives in similar styles for the same. You can be sure to recreate a celeb look with us without burning a hole in your pocket!
Genre Specific Accessorising
It is our conscious effort every time to dissect the coverage of accessories on our channel in terms of genre. We have:
Bridal Accessories: We cover real brides, designers and indie labels to present our readers the freshest scoop on bridal fashion. You are sure to find numerous lookbooks on wedding accessories, right from the best designs in maangtikka to budget kamarbands that you might otherwise ignore while prepping for a wedding!
Street Style: We love street style fashion. Since our audience majorly consists of the young and the restless, we understand being on top of the accessory game to showcase the hot new stuff on the market. Our street style inspirations come majorly from fashion and social media influencers who have in the past of years cemented their status of genuine fashionistas to look out for.
Festive: Quite often with other editorials, you will find festive and bridal fashion clubbed together since they are “technically” the same thing. We disagree! Bringing you a separate set of ideas to curate your look for Holi, Diwali or Garbha, you won't find us taking any shortcuts.
Office/ Work Wear: It is not easy to work nine hours a day, party for another three and then wake up in the morning prepped to be dressed super chic.
