Chic Accessories: Best buys of the season

Fashion trends according to the seasons, and fashion gurus say every season (fashion or otherwise) you need to update your wardrobe. Don’t let that scare you—the good news is that you don’t need to overhaul your wardrobe completely. Instead just update it with select accessories that give you a chic, updated and bang-on-trend look.

Speaking Chic guides you through the accessories of the season.

Day bag

Make sure it’s spacious and has enough pockets to hold your phone, keys and knick-knacks. And oh, make sure it’s coloured (keep the whites and nudes away for a while).

Evening Clutch

Choose your clutch based on your evening wear. Jewel tones and neutrals in luxe styles (satin finish, embellishments) are safe choices, so are metallics. Mix and match with your shoes.

Wedding Clutch

A bejwelled clutch at a wedding is just as important as your sari. Go crazy with shapes and colours (after all, our wedding wear palette encompasses a wide range of tones), and don’t be afraid to pile on the bling.

We suggest shunning the over-sized sunglasses and instead wearing shades that suit your face shape. Ray-bans are popular again, so are colourful frames.

Sexy heels

Monotone or multi-hued—take your pick. But make sure they’re skyhigh.

Cut-outs, mutli-hued straps—why should heels have all the fun?
